Newcastle, UK – In light of recent statistics published by the Office for National Statistics (ONS), Oceanside Retreat emphasises the critical public health challenge posed by the sharp increase in alcohol-specific deaths in the North East of England. The latest data reveals a concerning rise to 474 deaths in 2022, up from 373 in 2019, marking the highest rate recorded across the region and indeed England.

Alan Manx, a leading expert at Oceanside Retreat, alcohol rehab Newcastle, commented on the findings, stating, “The significant rise in alcohol-specific deaths in the North East reflects a deep-seated issue that requires immediate and effective public health interventions. At Oceanside Retreat, we are committed to supporting initiatives aimed at reducing alcohol harm and promoting healthier lifestyle choices.”

The report highlights a stark regional disparity, with the North East experiencing alcohol-related death rates nearly double those of London and the South East. These figures underscore the need for targeted health policies and support systems to address the specific needs of communities disproportionately affected by alcohol-related harms.

Oceanside Retreat advocates for a comprehensive approach to tackle this issue, combining public awareness campaigns, increased support for addiction recovery, and community-based health initiatives. “It’s essential to foster environments that support individuals in making informed choices about alcohol. Education and accessible health resources play a crucial role in this effort,” Manx added.

As part of its commitment to public health, Oceanside Retreat continues to offer programs and services designed to educate and support individuals dealing with substance use issues, aiming to foster a healthier, more informed public.
