The tragic death of an Avalon mother by her son, rumoured to be under the influence of ice, has resulted in increased awareness of the prevalence of ice on the Northern Beaches. We combat this in every possible way, particularly through spreading the message about the severe risks of using ice, and how to get help to encourage users to seek help.
