One former drug user says much of the solution to our country's drug problem lies with friends, family and the users themselves.
Newstalk ZB caller Ben has been using Methamphetamine since he was 14.
Ben and his father Steve spoke to Chris Lynch about the devastating effect meth addiction has, not only on the addict, but on their family also.
Ben told Chris, rehab is good but an addict must be ready to change.
He says the first point of call for an addict wanting to give up should be their family.
