Responsibility for the provision of drug treatment services rests with the health boards in the first instance. I have been advised by the Eastern Regional Health Authority that the three area health boards within the eastern region provide detoxification and rehabilitation services on both an in-patient and out-patient bases. Those under 18 years of age are prioritised for these services. The three boards also utilise in-patient rehabilitation services outside the eastern region; there are eight units that are currently utilised. This list is not static and may change from time to time depending on the need.
