National Opioid Pharmacotherapy Statistics Annual Data collection: 2011 report
This report presents data from the 2011 National Opioid Pharmacotherapy Statistics Annual Data (NOPSAD) collection. Specifically, it highlights the prescribed drug that clients in Australia took to help manage opioid dependence. Characteristics of the clients, prescribers and dosing point sites where the pharmacotherapy drugs were dispensed are also presented. The data are based on a ‘snapshot’ period—usually a day—in June 2011. On the snapshot day in 2011, there were 46,446 clients and 1,444 prescribers.
