Utilisation of Specialist and Non-Specialist Healthcare Services for Alcohol and Other Drug Problems in South Australia

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract

The Adelaide and Country Primary Health Networks (PHNs) commissioned the National Centre for Education and Training on Addiction (NCETA) to undertake a state-wide analysis of indicators of problematic patterns of alcohol and other drug (AOD) use and treatment seeking. The purpose of the analysis was to provide input into the PHNs’ needs assessments which inform the development, provision and funding of evidence-based AOD services within each respective PHN.
As part of this process, NCETA was requested to:
1. Identify patterns and prevalence of users of key drug types
2. Describe AOD treatment utilisation patterns.
3. Identify drugs of concern for specific risk groups.
This report addresses the second issue: treatment utilisation patterns across South Australia. The other two issues are addressed in separate reports.
