Pharmacotherapy in Australia
The AODTS NMDS visualisations are based on episode data reported during the 2021–22 collection cycle, and contains information on treatment provided to clients by publicly funded AOD treatment services. Only episodes where pharmacotherapy was an additional treatment, or a main treatment with an additional treatment provided are included in the AODTS NMDS. Episodes where pharmacotherapy and no additional treatment was provided are excluded.
The NOPSAD Collection visualisations are based on client data reported on a snapshot day in June 2022. This collection contains information on clients receiving opioid pharmacotherapy treatment, prescribers of opioid drugs and the dosing points that clients attend to receive their medication.
