St George community forum to tackle ice scourge
IT’S ONE of the most destructive and addictive drugs of our time and Maranoa MP David Littleproud has made it his mission to fight this scourge by holding a community forum in St George on August 28.
“As a father of three boys, this menace scares me because I've heard the heartbreaking stories of mums and dads across Maranoa who watch helplessly as their children suffer the horrific consequences of ice – it doesn’t discriminate because addiction can happen to anyone,” Mr Littleproud said.
“Whether you’re a user, recovering from addiction, family member, medical professional, involved in community support or law enforcement, we need an open and honest discussion, and that’s why I will hold a community forum at the St George Cultural Centre at 6pm on August 28.”
To ensure local communities are represented and receive tailored support, preventative measures and treatment outcomes, the MP is hosting forums across Maranoa.
