The NSW Ministry of Health has prepared a report on the evaluation of the Crystal Methamphetamine NGO Project.
The process and outcomes evaluation examined data from the commencement of services in 2016 to 31 December 2019. It investigated the extent to which the project has been successfully implemented; service demand and reach; impact on client outcomes; and whether the services represent good value for investment.
It demonstrates the positive impact of the methamphetamine-specific treatment services provided under the Counselling for People Using Methamphetamines Program, in terms of improving access to methamphetamine treatment services; establishing effective, locally integrated services; and improving methamphetamine-related health outcomes.
An accompanying infographic illustrates some of the high level findings of the evaluation.
