Crystal methamphetamine reduction strategy relased in South Australia

Date posted: 28 June 2017

The State Government of South Australia (SA) has released a strategy to reduce the growth of crystal methamphetamine (ice) use through supply reduction and increasing treatment, family support, and education.

SA Premier, Jay Weatherill, had already taken the measure of appointing an Ice Taskforce to develop a rapid response to the growing use of crystal methamphetamine in SA.

In line with the Taskforce’s recommendations, the SA government will invest $8 million over four years in the Stop the hurt strategy, with measures to include:

'The Taskforce’s recommendations are built on evidence based advice, and state-wide engagement on what is proven to work and what communities are calling for. Now that our plan is in place, the Taskforce will quickly work to implement these measures in the hope that we will soon begin to gain ground in our flight against ice,' said Premier Weatherill.
