Substantial growth in multidisciplinary specialist substance abuse treatment

Multidisciplinary specialist substance abuse treatment has increased rapidly over the past five years. Operating costs increased by 50 per cent and the number of out-patient consultations has doubled. There has been a slight increase in the number of beds. Part of the growth can be explained by the activity that was previously included in the mental health care and is now in a separate category for multidisciplinary specialist substance abuse treatment.
