This presentation discusses findings from a new Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) linkage report, Overlap between youth justice supervision and alcohol and other drug treatment services. Through the utilisation of data linkage techniques, this report examines young people aged 10–17 who were under youth justice supervision, and had received an alcohol and other drug treatment service, between 1 July 2012 and 30 June 2016. It identifies the key characteristics of young people involved in both systems in Australia, the type of youth justice supervision received, their principal drugs of concern, number of treatment episodes and makes comparisons to the treatment characteristics of the age-equivalent Australian population.
