The spread of crystal methamphetamine use sees more and more families face a horrifying reality - their child or spouse or parent is an addict. Their world is a hell where Ice rules and it is far from OK. Ice took families, society and the drug-addiction treatment sector by surprise. Young users often bypassed alcohol, 'soft' and party drug use, so the first mind-altering substance they try is ice, the world's strongest stimulant. A new kind of mature addict emerged, a drug-using individual who seemed to manage to navigate life normally before, and then suddenly abandoned everything. People become withered, psychotic, mumbling ghosts. The speed of their journey broke all previous records. Their unmanageability became legendary. The core of this book is not the drug, but the people: the addict who desperately needs help, and the people around the addict who need clear and practical information about the solution. With the right treatment, addicts do recover.

    This book gave me an insight into how to help my son, an "Ice" user.He is a strong, loving and good man who ended up being a trafficker to support his "habit". A bitterly painful progression for him and the tole on his body, health and relationships has been enormous. A painful but very necessary read to help me to give support to a gentle man who took the wrong road.

        This book was full of information for people whom believe family member has an issue, but unsure where to get info. Found myself feeling like our life was on the page. Very confronting, but real.
