  • almost two-thirds (64%) of AOD agencies in Queensland are non-government treatment agencies that receive public funding
  • over half (51%) of the 176 treatment agencies in Queensland were located in Major cities, followed by Outer regional (20%) and Inner regional (19%) areas
  • around 22% of all government organisations in Queensland are located in Remote and Very remote areas (Figure 12; Table SA.3).
