The Victorian Alcohol and Drug Collection (VADC) is the data collection specification for all Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Victorian funded Alcohol and other drug (AOD) treatment providers. The VADC is a list of data elements (or types of information) that AOD treatment providers are required to report from their own client management systems (CMS) to the DHHS (the department). 

The VADC is principally designed to meet the department’s funding acquittal and performance monitoring requirements. The VADC also will inform service system development and catchment-based planning, demand modelling, program evaluation and research.
