In March 2015 the Victorian Government released the $45.5 million Ice Action Plan. The plan was developed to tackle the growing use of ice in the Victorian community and the harms associated with use. Families of people who use ice were identified as a top priority.
With funding from the Ice Action Plan, Turning Point, SHARC and Bouverie Centre developed the BreakThrough program. Now being delivered across the state by facilitators from Turning Point and SHARC, BreakThrough has been very successful in addressing the stigma associated with ice use and linking families into ongoing support options.
To date, 83% of participants who responded to an evaluation of BreakThrough rated their satisfaction with the program as high or very high. Ninety-three per cent (93%) said they were very likely to follow through on suggestions made by the facilitator and 99% said they would recommend the program to others.
