Helping break the ice cycle
THE Tenterfield Community Drug Action Team is hosting a forum in Tenterfield to help service providers, frontline workers and the community get facts about crystalline methamphetamine or 'ice' use.
Leaders and experts in drug prevention will help you understand some of the issues you might have heard about ice in the media, and provide evidence-based information about the drug and where to seek help, support and treatment in your local community.
Come along and be informed about the drug and see how you can help reduce drug use in your community.
Drug issues can affect anyone, from any walk of life, and almost all of us know someone who has been impacted by drugs in some way - so anyone over 18 is welcome to attend.
Guest speakers include Annie Bleeker from the Alcohol & Drug Foundation, community member Deborah Lions, John Gordon Drug and Alcohol Clinical Services, Paul Phillips from the Buttery Intra Team, and Inspector Roger Best from the Armidale local area command.
The free workshop will be held from 6-8pm next Thursday, February 23, at the Tenterfield School of Arts, in partnership with the Alcohol and Drug Foundation and New South Wales Health.
