The number one drug addiction driving Australians into treatment


More than 130,000 Australians were treated for alcohol or drug problems in 2017-18 at publicly funded clinics, amounting to one in every 166 people, the latest national data shows.
Alcohol is overwhelmingly the most common drug problem treated in Australia, but amphetamines are gaining ground as increasing numbers of users get specialist support, according to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) report released on Wednesday.
