Alcohol treatment services

This report finds that an estimated 10 million people in England regularly exceed the Chief Medical Officers’ low-risk drinking guidelines, including 1.7 million who drink at higher risk and around 600,000 who are dependent on alcohol. It says that 82 per cent of those 600,000 dependent drinkers in England are not in treatment despite success rates of around 60 per cent and evidence that, on average, every £1 spent on treatment immediately delivers £3 of benefit and significantly more in the longer term. It finds that there has been an increase in alcohol-related deaths, which rose by 89 per cent over the past 20 years, with sharp rises since 2019.
