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 sobering-up/residential respite/short-term care client numbers cluster describes the number of clients that stayed in sobering-up/residential respite/short-term care during the reporting period.
Sobering-up clients stay in residential care overnight to sober up and do not receive formal rehabilitation. Residential respite/short-term clients spend 1 to 7 days in residential care for respite, and do not receive formal rehabilitation.
The four data elements are used together to provide a count of clients by their Indigenous status, sex and age ranges.
