The third National Indigenous Drug and Alcohol Committee (NIDAC) conference has heard of a direct link between an increase in violence from the use of the drug crystal methamphetamine (meth).
Deputy Chair of NIDAC, Scott Wilson, says a recent study of 300 meth and ice users in Brisbane and Sydney has found the incidence of violence went from 10% to 60% once the drug was used.
Scott Wilson says drug use is widespread, not just in Aboriginal communities, and needs residential rehabilitation and follow up to tackle the issue.
