The SACENDU Project is an alcohol and other drug (AOD) sentinel surveillance system operational in 9 provinces in South Africa. The system, operational since 1996, monitors trends in AOD use and associated consequences on a six-monthly basis from specialist AOD treatment programmes. The 1st half of 2015 (i.e. 2015a) saw 10936 patients across 75 centres/programmes. This review period saw an increase in number of patients admitted for treatment (from 10197 in 2014b to 10936 in 2015a).
