Exploring drug treatment and homelessness in Australia: 1 July 2011 to 30 June 2014
There is much research to suggest a considerable overlap between people experiencing precarious housing, and those experiencing drug and alcohol misuse: many present both to alcohol and other drug treatment services (AODTS) with a variety of drug use issues, and to specialist homelessness services (SHS) either at risk of, or experiencing, homelessness. In an effort to better understand clients of both services, data from the Alcohol and Other Drug Treatment Services National Minimum Dataset (AODTS NMDS) and from the Specialist Homelessness Services Collection (SHSC) were linked for the period 2011–12 to 2013–14, allowing the identification of a 'matched client group' of around 40,000 clients—representing a significant proportion of AODTS (21%) and SHS (8%) clients.
