Ice epidemic hits the Barkly
PROBLEM AREA: Barkly Youth
Services’ Peter Cain says the ice
problem in the Barkly will get much
worse over the next two to three years.
AS the Territory and Federal Gov-
ernments move to tackle Austra-
lia’s ice epidemic, a youth worker
fears the worst is yet to come in
Peter Cain from Barkly Youth Ser-
vices says methamphetamine, commonly
known as ice, is firmly established in Ten-
nant Creek and is even present in some of
the remote communities.
“We first saw ice in the region about a
year or so ago,” he said.
“It was pretty low quality stuff but now
it is stronger and more addictive.
“We also believe that some cannabis sold
in town has been soaked in methamphet-
amine to increase the strength of the drug.
“And there’s evidence of polyuse such
as smoking ice and sniffing petrol at the
Peter said ice is an insidious and danger-
ous drug with low rehabilitation rates.
“Put simply, if you’ve got a teenager who
gets addicted to ice, they will never be the
same again,” he said.
“The damage caused is irreparable, it’s
shocking - and the problem seems to be
“Those who are using ice - even if they
have the foresight to realise what they’re
doing is wrong - are trapped.
“We can’t stop them using the drug. We
can’t limit the fallout. We can’t protect
their friends. And we can’t help their
“It’s a tragedy that’s going to affect every
one of us in some way and the cost will
“This drug will eclipse all others and so
the community has to band together to try
and restrict the importation into town.”
The Territory Government recently an-
nounced an inquiry to determine the im-
pact of ice on urban, regional and remote
areas following reports of a sharp increase
in its use.
The Council of Social Services said
ice was the third most common illicit
substance being used in Indigenous com-
And Police noticed ice played a bigger
part in major crimes, car crashes and
crimes featuring weapons.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Tony Ab-
bott says Australia is in the grip of an ice
epidemic that’s worse than any previous
drug problem the nation has faced.
This week he launched a national task
force to help tackle what he described as
a ‘dreadful scourge’.
“The propensity for violence, the pro-
pensity to subsequent, very serious mental
illness, the propensity to disfigurement
which ice produces means that this is a
drug epidemic way beyond anything that
we have seen before now,” he said.
Mr Abbott said the task force would
be in charge of coordinating local, state
and federal efforts against the use, sale,
manufacture and importation of the drug.
