Alcohol and other drug use in South Australia: Patterns & prevalence: Summary report one

    Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

    Abstract

    The Adelaide and Country SA Primary Health Networks (PHNs) commissioned the National Centre for Education and Training on Addiction (NCETA) to undertake a statewide analysis of indicators of problematic patterns of alcohol and other drug use by small geographical areas and using relevant datasets. The purpose of the analysis is to provide additional input to the PHN needs assessments currently being undertaken to inform the development, provision and funding of needs- and evidence-based alcohol and other drug (AOD) services within each respective PHN geographical region.

    As part of this process, NCETA was requested to:

    1. Identify patterns and prevalence of users of key drug types
    2. Identify drugs of concern for specific risk groups
    3. Describe AOD treatment utilisation patterns.

    This report addresses the first of these issues. Subsequent reports address the remaining two issues.
