Methamphetamine is a drug which can cause substantial harms; particularly the purest and most potent form of it, commonly known as ‘ice’. What exactly does methamphetamine do to your body and mind? This book explores current trends in methamphetamine use in Australia, and reveals the health and social impacts of the growing ice scourge, featuring information on related crime and violence, psychosis, addiction, withdrawal, treatment and recovery. The book also explains the latest government responses to tackling Australia’s ice problem through policy, law enforcement and public awareness initiatives. The risks of using this drug are many, and the best approach is to never try it; how can we encourage young people to avoid becoming victims of the ‘ice epidemic’?
