Scope:Help on this term

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander standalone substance use services data set specification (DSS) describes the provision of treatment and assistance for a range of substance use issues for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. This includes both illicit substances and the use of alcohol, tobacco and nicotine.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander standalone substance use services provide treatment and assistance through residential treatment and rehabilitation programs; sobering-up, and residential respite and short-term care; non-residential counselling and rehabilitation programs; or through a combination of these.

The aggregate level collection supports information to be collected at the service provider organisation level.

Comments:Help on this term

Substance use can cause harm to individuals, their families and communities. It contributes significantly to the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians in life expectancy and other health outcomes. The Australian Government aims to reduce alcohol and other drug problems in Indigenous communities. Improved access to treatment is one of the priority areas of the National Drug Strategy (MCDS 2004).
