This web report supplements the Alcohol and other drug treatment services in Australia 2016–17 report by presenting key state and territory findings on clients, closed treatment episodes, and treatment agencies in 2016–17.
Nearly all (98%) clients in Queensland in 2016–17 were receiving treatment for their own drug use, and most (67%) were male (Figure 9; Table SC QLD.1). The reverse was true for clients receiving treatment or support for someone else’s drug use (73% were female). Just over half (52%) of clients were aged 20–39 years, and 18% were aged 10–19 years which is higher than the national average (13%) (Table SC QLD.2). About 1 in 7 clients were Indigenous Australians (15%), which is consistent with the national average (Tables SC QLD.3 and SC.4).
