In 2016–17, over half of the 168 treatment agencies in Queensland were located in Major cities (55%), followed by Outer regional areas (18%) and Inner regional (17%). The majority of treatment agencies were non-government organisations (64%), although only 3% of these agencies are located in Remote and Very remote areas (Figure 12; Table SA.3). Conversely, 21% of all government organisations in Queensland are located in Remote and Very remote areas. In the 5 years to 2016–17, the number of publicly funded treatment agencies in Queensland rose from 133 in 2012–13 to 181 in 2014–15, dropped to 162 in 2015–16, and then rose again to 168 in 2016–17 (Table SA.1).
