It’s been around for some time, but the ice epidemic has reached levels over the past three years that has caught many Australians off guard.
While seven per cent of Australians aged 14 years and over have used meth/amphetamines one or more times in their life, only two per cent of that same demographic have the drug in the previous 12 months. Yet, the problem of addiction continues to grow.
Why don’t people get help? How does one get help? How can we help?
According to the Australian Drug Foundation, the problem blocking the solution lies in the stigma surrounding ice addicts.
In a bid to breakdown the negativity and misunderstanding, the ADF has rolled out a three-part video series, which looks at the effect of meth on a former addict, a mother and a doctor.
