Client demographics

Nearly all (96%) clients in Tasmania in 2016–17 were receiving treatment for their own drug use, and most (66%) were male (Figure 21; Table SC Tas.1). The reverse was true for clients receiving treatment or support for someone else’s drug use (74% were female). Over half (52%) of clients were aged 20–39 years (Table SC TAS.2). Just over 1 in 10 clients were Indigenous Australians (12%), which is lower than the national average (15%) (Tables SC TAS.3 and SC.4).
