Breaking the ice – All In The Mind

All In The Mind is a great podcast around psychology and mental issues from ABC in Australia.

The typical message from Australian media indicates a growing drug problem. Apparently Australia is under going an ice epidemic.

The problem with this narrative is that it isn’t true. As the podcast indicates the number of methamphetamine users has halved over the last 20 years. What has changed is the delivery system – stronger forms promoting bigger social problems.

Interestingly young people are using less drugs including alcohol. As with my previous post counselling had a beneficial effect for addicts.
