The evaluation assessed the following:

  • Utilisation of the clinic by people who use non-prescribed psycho-stimulants, who are in early-stage drug use and who have not previously sought treatment for psychostimulant use disorders.
  • Retention of clients through the three appointments and, if possible, to longer-term follow up.
  • Characteristics of clients with higher versus lower retention, with attention paid to what keeps clients retained.
  • Profile of clients who report risky levels of stimulant use and describe their stimulant-associated harms.
  • Type and amount of information and referrals provided to clients, and aftercare plans established.
  • Perceptions and experiences of clients and staff involved in the clinic.
