Alcohol overtakes illicit drugs as key concern of rehab centre

AM – : Alcohol overtakes illicit drugs as key concern of rehab centre: “It’s a sobering reminder this festive season that alcohol has overtaken illicit drugs as the main reason for rehabilitation at one of Australia’s largest treatment centres.”

Good and bad. It means we are making a breakthrough with drugs and since drugs knock you out then people will look for a substitute until we can manage the whole drug/drink scenario and get some balance into people’s behaviour. It means we have to operate as a community, we need to get the messages of hope and help out there and we need to get trained up in how to manage the change. We are changing and rather looking at the black side, we need to get in there and create the conditions which will create more and more people who do not need to blot themselves out one way or another.
