The Stop The Hurt South Australian Ice Action Plan (PDF 351KB) was launched on behalf of the Government by the Premier on 15 June 2017.
As a result of the South Australian Ice Action Plan, the Government is investing $8 million over four years in targeted strategies to reduce supply, increase support to families, build capacity and increase treatment. This is in addition to the approximately $5.7 million of SA Health’s current annual budget which has been allocated for the provision of treatment services to people with methamphetamine use issues.
Initiatives focus on the key priority areas of reducing supply, increasing treatment and family support, building community education and capacity.
The South Australian Ice Action Plan included the action, “Considering a model for mandatory assessment and/or treatment for those at extreme and immediate risk, based on the Victorian Severe Substance Dependency Treatment Act 2010.”
