The SACENDU Project is an alcohol and other drug (AOD) sentinel surveillance system now operational in 9 provinces in South Africa: Western Cape (WC: Cape Town); KwaZulu-Natal (KZN); Eastern Cape (EC); Mpumalanga (MP) and Limpopo (LP)
(combined as the Northern Region: NR); Gauteng (GT: Johannesburg, Pretoria); Free State (FS), Northern Cape (NC), and
Northwest (NW) (combined as the Central Region (CR). The system, operational since 1996, monitors trends in AOD use and
associated consequences on a six-monthly basis from specialist AOD treatment programmes. This report will focus on data on
treatment admissions from the 8771 patients seen across the 75 centres/programmes in the 1st half of 2008 (i.e. 2008a).
