Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander standalone drug and alcohol services offer temporary, live-in accommodation for clients requiring substance use treatment and rehabilitation.

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander standalone substance use service residential/rehabilitation episodes of care cluster describes the number of episodes of residential/rehabilitation episodes of care provided by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander standalone substance use services.

The four data elements are used together to provide a count of residential treatment and/or rehabilitation episodes of care by the Indigenous status, age ranges and sex of clients.

Collection and usage attributes

Guide for use:Help on this term

An episode of care starts at admission into a residential treatment/rehabilitation program and ends at discharge from residential care.

An episode of care is not determined by the length of time spent in residential care. No matter how long the client stays in residential care it is only counted as one episode of care. If a client is discharged and later comes back into residential care, this is considered to be a separate episode of care.

Excludes:

  • sobering-up/residential respite/short term programs
  • clients who did not receive formal treatment and/or rehabilitation such as housing clients.

The total Indigenous and non-Indigenous episodes of care may include unknown or not reported sex. Total sex may include unknown or not reported Indigenous status.
