Summary "I made over 100 telephone calls to rehabs all around Australia and the waiting time was, it was just intense"Drug users say getting off and staying off ICE is really tough, so if your child or loved one is on the drug - what do you do? Negotiating the system is not easy. Public? Private? For how long? There are a myriad of treatment services, all providing different levels of care, experience and cost. But that's assuming you can get in, with some people forced to wait weeks or even months for a place.Unlike other drugs, it takes over a year for the brain to re-balance itself after using. For many, it's just easier to go back to old habits.This week on Insight, we explore what worked for ICE users who kicked the habit. We look at the treatments available, hear from people in recovery and discuss the challenges with those on the frontline of our rehabilitation services
