HC Deb 14 January 2003 vol 397 c520W
Mr. Hoban

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what the average period of(a) residential and (b) non-residential drug rehabilitation was in the last year for which figures are available. [85713]

Ms Blears

[holding answer 9 December 2002]: This information is not collected centrally.

The periods will vary according to the different drug treatment modalities and depend on the clinical and social needs of each individual drug user. The variations in the length of treatment times, in individual cases, are such that comparisons could be very misleading.
