67 6.2.4 Cannabis Closed treatment episodes for cannabis increased slightly in 2010/11 (Figure 40) and continued to remain by far the most common reason for presentation at treatment. Figure 40: Number of episodes commenced in NT AODTS where cannabis was the principal or other drug of concern, 2001/02-2010/11 Source: NT AODP 6.2.5 Other drugs In 2010/11 there was an increase in closed episodes where morphine was the principal or other drug of concern. Consistent with the high level of morphine use in the NT, closed episodes where morphine was the principal or other drug of concern represented the second most common reason (after cannabis) for presentation at treatment (Figure 41).
