To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, how much his Department has spent on residential detoxification facilities provided to individuals required to attend such facilities as a condition of their sentence in each year since 2010 for which information is available.
There is no specific requirement for an offender to attend residential detoxification as a condition of their sentence. However, residential treatment may be provided within a Drug Rehabilitation Requirement (DRR) or Alcohol Treatment Requirement (ATR) through locally commissioned residential addiction recovery services. In England, these services are funded by local authorities, as part of their public health responsibilities. In Wales, health, including substance misuse services, is devolved to the Welsh Government. The table below shows the overall number of DRRs and ATRs commenced under community orders and suspended sentence orders in England and Wales since 2010.
