Specialist drug and alcohol services for young people – a cost benefit analysis

This report was published in February 2011.

“The Department for Education (DfE) appointed Frontier Economics to undertake a cost benefit analysis of drug policy relating to young people. This project is an element of a broader piece of work being carried out by the Centre for Analysis of Youth Transitions.

There are two main elements of the study: understanding the amount that is spent in total and per person on specialist drug and alcohol services for young people in 2008-09; estimating and valuing the benefits of young people’s drug and alcohol treatment – measured as a reduction in the economic and social costs of drug and alcohol misuse.”
