Blackpool, Lancashire Drug and Alcohol Problems
Blackpool, Lancashire has a very serious drug and alcohol problem. According to the available data, Blackpool, has the highest number of alcohol-related mortality rates for men in England. It places second for women. It is also the top in the country for alcohol related liver disease and death, heart disease, alcohol-related cancer, and alcohol overdoses.
Healthcare officials say the area’s problem is related to the decline in tourism, increase in stag and hen parties, unemployment, and urban deprivation. Furthermore, drinking in Blackpool is part of the “culture”, and can be traced back to the Victorian era when people from around the UK travelled to Blackpool for its vibrant nightlife. In 2018, there were at least 1,550 licensed premises to sell alcohol, or one for every 90 residents.
Of the 140,000 residents in Blackpool, it is believed that an estimated 4 % of the people are addicted to alcohol, 8 % are high risk drinkers (consuming more than 6 or 8 units per day for females or males respectively), 21 % are drinking at an increasing risk, 10 % are abstaining from alcohol, and the remaining 57 % drink at a low risk.
Between 2017 and 2018, 387 people sought out alcohol addiction treatment in Blackpool. Most of those who received treatment did so on their own, without the recommendation of a GP, hospital, or service. It took an average time of six months to complete treatment which was a combination of inpatient and outpatient rehab, as well as, weekly therapy sessions and support groups.
Drug use in Blackpool is also a major concern. According to the Bureau of National Statistics, Blackpool has the highest number of heroin-related deaths with an average of 14 deaths per 100,000 people. Many of those who are addicted to heroin are known as the “Trainspotting Generation”. These are people who started using in the 80s and 90s and have not stopped. They are often in very poor health and come to Blackpool for it’s cheap accommodation and quick access to drugs.
Hospital admissions for drug related medical conditions, including overdoses, are eight times higher than London; with an average of 104 people per 100,000. A crude estimate of those with a drug dependence to crack or heroin in Blackpool is 22 per 1000 aged 15 to 64.
Drug misuse in Blackpool spans across all ages, economic backgrounds, and social standing. Due to the continuous budget cuts, there are voiced concerns about the ability to provide Blackpool residents with effective treatment options.
