In the years 2015 and 2017 there were, regretfully, ninety two residents of Newcastle who sadly died due to drug overdoses. Within a ratio of 100,000 adults, this translates as 11.4. When measured against the average for England, 6.4, then it is clear that there is a disparity that needs addressing. While there is a higher than average mortality rate in the North East at 10.7 per 100,000, this figure of 11.4 is alarming.  

Newcastle Upon Tyne public Health department report that this is due to the wide availability of class A drugs

and the increasing purity. Indeed , during 2014-2016 drug related deaths in Newcastle Upon Tyne reached 102. This was an increase of 30 from the previous decade. 

Most recent estimates of opioid and crack cocaine use in the area suggest that there are around 2,174 adults using illicit drugs. This equates to 10.7 users per 100,000 adults which is above the average rate for England which stands at 8.9.

For fee paying clients, accessing residential treatment in the north East can be very  problematic as there is a severe shortage of private provision. It can often be much quicker to access treatment out of area. Private outpatient treatment and local drug and alcohol focused therapists are available. Call Paul to discuss your needs/options.
