24/7 Helpline

Figures published, tend to be for the county rather than the city of Lancaster. However, they are a useful indicator of the prevalence of drug and alcohol dependency in the city.  Another complication is that the figures have not been updated since 2016-2017. 

During the last reporting period (2016-2017) there were 9.1 opioid and/or crack users per 1000 people, aged between  15-64, in Lancashire. This is in line with the average for England at 8.9.  this compares, very favourably, with Blackpool and Darwen: 23.5 and 18.8% percent, respectively. Also, completion figures for greater Lancashire were 12.5% which is double that for Blackpool and Blackburn with Darwen.  Completion rates were higher in areas of the county outside of Blackpool and Blackburn/Darwen. 

​Unsurprisingly, the death rates in Lancashire outside of Blackpool/Blackburn/Darwen were similar to the rest of England at 5. Blackpool, for this period, had 22 and Blackburn: 9. 

Aside from Blackpool/Blackburn and Darwen, there were 83.9 admissions to hospital per 100,000 persons aged between 15-24 which is only very slightly higher than the average for England a 81.2
