Family services are to be treated as occasions of service to an individual. A group is defined as two or more patients receiving a service together where all individuals are not members of the same family.

In general, establishments other than acute hospitals provide a much more limited range of services for non-admitted patients and outreach/community patients/clients. Therefore, disaggregation by type of non-admitted patient care is not relevant to alcohol and drug hospitals.
