Federal Government support vital for addressing critical drug issue

Independent Member for Indi, Cathy McGowan AO, has welcomed the Government’s release of the National Ice Taskforce Final Report and $300 million funding to help tackle the ‘ice’ problem in communities.

"Congratulations to the Government on recognising the need for local input and allowing service providers on the ground to decide on the most effective strategies to deal with the issues,” Ms McGowan said.

“This Government money will lead to improved treatment, education and prevention, support and increased community engagement, and after care.”

Primary Health Networks will work with communities to determine the most effective treatment strategy for local areas.

“I encourage people to get in touch with the Murray Primary Health Network to provide feedback on what is needed in our communities to get results,” Ms McGowan said.

Visit the Murray Primary Health Network website to provide feedback, email northeast@murrayphn.org.au or phone 02 6041 0000.
