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

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 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander standalone substance use services sobering-up/residential respite/short-term care episodes of care cluster describes the number of episodes of sobering-up/residential respite/short-term care 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 sobering-up/residential respite/short-term care episodes of care by the Indigenous status, age ranges and sex of clients.
