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 2nd half of 2015 (i.e. 2015b) saw 9679 patients across 78 centres/programmes. This review period saw a decrease in number of patients admitted for treatment (from 10936 in 2015a to 9679 in 2015b).
