DMRU 2002 DMRU

9 Enormously Greater Relevance for Key Performance Indicators and Targets set at Government level for Understanding & Performance Management at Local level region/ DAT DMRU 2002 DMRU

10 Contact: Individuals in Treatment 2001/2 17% 30% 53% DMRU 2002 DMRU

11 Waiting times: between referral and assessment 2001/2 0% 10% 20% 30% 40% 50% 60% <1 week1 week to 1 month 1-3 months 3-6 months > 6 months New Clients Ongoing Clients DMRU 2002 DMRU

13 Contact & Review: Levels of reporting 2001/02 DMRU 2002 DMRU < 83% return rate

14 Review: Treatment status at year end 2001/2 45% 21% 34% DMRU 2002 DMRU

15 Review: reasons for loss of contact DMRU 2002 DMRU 12% 3% 10% 41% 6% 9% 1%

16 Review: treatment interventions received during 2001/2 DMRU 2002 DMRU 70% 8% 5% 30% 60% 16%
