Public duty to share terror of meth addiction - Opinion - NZ Herald News | 3.1 A New Zealand Health Issue | Scoop.it

Not the best week, but we were ready for it at least. My daughter faced it bravely and the outcome could have been a lot worse. I find it hard to write about the evils of pure methamphetamine

Toni Ferens 's insight:

A worthwhile read. Some good stats in this article. Eg, the average purity in the united states for meth is 30 % in NZ it is 60%. The greater the purity the more likely addiction will occur.

This speech highlights the main points of the action plan and maybe easier for students to understand rather than wading through a legal document. John has strong opinions here.

A good website for links to personal stories of New Zealanders
Toni Ferens 's comment, May 11, 2013 11:45 PM
This website was introduced as a result of the 2009 action plan. The Govt produced statistics 27 Nov 2012 that states, that P users are better at seeking help - since Aug 2010 the methhelp website was visited over 25,000 times and over 10,000 copies of methhelp booklets have been ordered. A measure that the Govt is winning the war on P ...... or is it ??? Does visiting a website and ordering a methhelp booklet equal meth users seeking worthwhile help ??? or is this just an example of Health promotion - behavioural change model ?
