Sutcliffe, D. and Rae, J. and Bevan, G. and Barzey, C. and Chappel, D. (1999) 'Using the National Drug Treatment Monitoring System (NDTMS) data in the North East.', Discussion Paper. North East Public Health Observatory, Stockton on Tees.
Drug misuse in the UK is now a serious cause of morbidity and mortality. In response to an increase in the prevalence of drug misuse the Government created The National Treatment Agency for Substance Misuse (NTA) in 2001 to improve the availability, capacity and effectiveness of treatment for drug misuse in England as part of its National Drug Strategy. In April 2001 responsibility for NDTMS moved from the Department of Health to the NTA. In the North East region, the most significant recent change was the development of the North East regional NDTMS team in April 2004, under the management of the North East PHO.
