Description:

The Department of Health funded a review of the AOD treatment services sector from July 2013 to July 2014.

The review report describes:

  • current Australian AOD treatment funding
  • current and future service needs
  • the gap between met and unmet demand

It provides options to:

  • improve processes for future Commonwealth AOD funding rounds
  • help make sure processes respond to the needs of individuals, families and their communities

The review found that:

  • the roles and responsibilities of the Commonwealth and state and territory governments were unclear
  • there was a need for more shared analysis and feasibility work

As part of this wider review, a Review of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander AOD Treatment Service Sector was also completed.
