Angela Ireland: The Impact of Ice & Other Drug Use On Teenagers

Angela Ireland, Booked Out Speakers Agency

Session Info:

This presentation looks at the impact of addiction (in particular the drug ‘ice’) on the important development stage of teenagers.

We examine how important this stage is in setting up their future.

The key message of this session is:

You need to make your own choices – don’t allow a drug to limit or eliminate these choices for you.

  • The different stages of family life and how safe passage through these years will determine the future.
  • How ice impacts on the developing brain:
    • The impact on career choices – employment vs unemployment
    • The impact on housing outcomes – having a home vs homelessness
    • The impact on mental health – rational/competent/agreeable vs psychosis
    • The impact on personal freedom – freedom in a community vs imprisonment.
