In 2017–18, 3 in 4 (75%) clients in Victoria attended 1 agency, and received an average of 2.1 closed treatment episodes, which is higher than the national average of 1.6 episodes (Tables SC.21 and SC.23). This is due to the nuances of Victoria’s data collection system, where each type of treatment results in a separate treatment episode.
