§ Mr. Hancock
To ask the Secretary of State for Health what the average cost per patient of alcohol and drug rehabilitation on the NHS was in the last 12 months; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Ms Blears
There are around 3,100 bedspaces within the drug and alcohol residential rehabilitation sector. The cost per week, per patient, varies from around £250 for a placement within hostel accommodation to around £1000 for a placement within a medical/clinical facility. There is no information collected at present on community rehabilitation programmes, although work is being developed on this by the national treatment agency.
