NHS Digital reveals 7,376 hospital admissions for drug related mental and behavioural disorders and 2,917 deaths related to poisoning by drug misuse. 20.3% young adults (16-24) had taken an illicit drug in the last year and Hospital admissions for pensioners with drug-related conditions rose 6fold in 10 years.
