Families and friends can play a critical role in the recovery of people who might be experiencing problems with ice (or other drugs). This section provides information about helping a loved one who may be using ice, including tips for starting a conversation, how to protect yourself and where to get additional support.

As part of the Cracks in the Ice website, we have developed a new evidence-based online wellbeing and resilience program for families and friends of people who use methamphetamine. The support program provides strategies to cope with and respond to a loved one using Ice, exploring sources of support for yourself and a loved one, and provision of specific strategies to improve family resilience. This program is currently undergoing a formal evaluation. For more information visit the FFSP program
