Growth in Treatment Capacity
"In the period 2002-2010, the capacity of treatment programmes steadily increased. Figure 5.2 illustrates this increase, which is a direct consequence of the increasing number of treatment structures over the years. Similarly, the number of “all clients” in treatment per year increased, as demonstrated by the sum of clients already in treatment and “admissions” (3,745 in 2002 versus 8,067 in 2010).
"More specifically, in 2010 treatment programme capacity increased by 10,8% compared to 2009. There is also an increase by 8.3% in total number of clients who received main treatment in the reporting year compared to 2009. Last year, the increase in capacity was commensurate with the increase in the number of clients (10.8% and 8.3% respectively). As for the mean power, there is an increase by 9.9% compared to 2009."
