Ice use in Australia

The number of people using ice in Australia has increased in recent years in many communities.

We Can Do This is designed to assist Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who use ice to reduce or stop using.

It was developed with input from many people, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who have used ice.

The 'We Can Do This' research program

We Can Do This is free, confidential and easy to use. But we need help to make sure it works.

To do this, we are making We Can Do This available to people to use either by themselves, or with extra support from participating health services.

Who is this program for?

Anyone who is 16 years old or older; is Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander and has used methamphetamine (ice) about weekly or more often for the past three months is invited to take part in the We Can Do This trial.
