Mental health hospital admissions linked to cocaine use treble in 10 years NHS data shows surge in England, with increased availability of drug and government cuts blamed
The number of hospital admissions for mental health disorders linked to cocaine use has almost trebled in the past decade, official figures show.
NHS Digital data has shown that in England between 2017-18 there were 14,470 admissions where patients were experiencing mental and behavioural disorders due to use of cocaine. The number was up year-on-year, substantially higher than the 5,148 between 2007-08. The figures did not distinguish between powdered cocaine and crack cocaine. The Guardian
