Client demographics

Nearly all (99%) clients in South Australia in 2016–17 were receiving treatment for their own drug use, and most (68%) clients were male (Figure 17; Table SC SA.1). The reverse was true for clients receiving treatment or support for someone else’s drug use (69% were female). Over half (54%) of clients were aged 20–39 years (Table SC SA.2). Just over 1 in 10 clients were Indigenous Australians (11%), which is lower than the national average (15%) (Tables SC SA.3 and SC.4).
