Experts to demystify ice issues

THE Tweed Heads Breaking the Ice forum is one of the first two of its kind in the state.

The Australian Drug Foundation has operated for over 55 years and is considered one of the nation's leading bodies in the fight against drug and alcohol addiction.

Community Drug Action Teams formed as part of the NSW Government's Community Engagement and Action Program, which is administered by the ADF, will band together with other leaders in the field to look at community-based responses to crystal meth use.

Ice 'can happen to anyone'

ADF NSW community programs manager Nikki Woolley said the forum would break down misconceptions of the issue and provide evidence-based information, where to seek help, support and treatment in the area.

"We need to start seeing the person rather than just the drug and to encourage people to seek help early, rather than hide the problem. The solution lies in the community's hands."
