Illicit Drugs

Illicit drugs are often used as a tool to cope with negative emotions or to alleviate the effects of past traumas. They are often toxic and can cause serious harm. Illicit drugs include cocaine, ICE, heroin, hallucinogens and marijuana.


Illicit drugs include some of the most commonly abused drugs across Australia. They are highly addictive, readily available and include substances like ICE, cocaine, heroin and marijuana.

Noosa Confidential delivers a proven and effective, outcome focussed program designed to eliminate the need to escape through the use of illicit drugs.

Impact of Untreated Drug Addiction

Illicit drug addiction can have a number of negative impacts on the individual. Drug addiction often leads to drug trafficking, drug-related crimes and drug overdoses. It can also lead to increased crime rates in communities as individuals commit crimes in order to obtain more drugs.

Drug addiction is also associated with the spread of diseases such as HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis B and C.

Drug addiction can lead to alcohol use as well, which is often used as a coping mechanism for drug craving during withdrawal.
