On a snapshot day in 2021, 47,563 clients received pharmacotherapy treatment for their opioid dependence across Australia (excluding data for Queensland). There were 2,485 dosing points and 2,673 authorised prescribers of opioid pharmacotherapy drugs nationally.

Data for Queensland for the NOPSAD 2021 collection were not available at the time of publication. Caution should therefore be taken when comparing 2021 data with previous years as these include data for Queensland.
