Handling the heat on ice

Rural towns in NSW are calling for an increase in rehabilitation centres to facilitate the escalating number of crystal methamphetamine users.  Community leaders across the State candidly admit their regions have a problem, and call on local people and the State government to help tackle the growing scourge.

 Moree Mayor Katrina Humphries and Coonamble Mayor Alan Karanouh both said the ice problem had been prominent in the community for a few years and had caused an increase of robberies throughout the region.  Problems have been highlighted in Brewarrina, and, in the south of the State, Griffith has identified drug and alcohol misuse as an issue and is surveying the community.
