Collection and usage attributes
|Guide for use:|
Only one code to be selected at the end of the alcohol and other drug treatment episode. Agencies should report the setting in which most of the main type of treatment was received by the client during the treatment episode.
CODE 1 Non-residential treatment facility
This code refers to any non-residential centre that provides alcohol and other drug treatment services, including hospital outpatient services and community health centres.
CODE 2 Residential treatment facility
This code refers to community-based settings in which clients reside either temporarily or long-term in a facility that is not their home or usual place of residence to receive alcohol and other drug treatment. This does not include ambulatory situations, but does include therapeutic community settings.
CODE 3 Home
This code refers to the client's own home or usual place of residence.
CODE 4 Outreach setting
This code refers to an outreach environment, excluding a client's home or usual place of residence, where treatment is provided. An outreach environment may be any public or private location that is not covered by Codes 1-3. Mobile/outreach alcohol and other drug treatment service providers would usually provide treatment within this setting (e.g. at a mutually agreed public space).
