Daniel Andrews’ promises on drug treatment come to nothing

Opposition Press Releases

Victoria’s drugs crisis is getting worse, not better.

Today the Andrews Labor Government told the Grampians community it has “committed funding” for 112 new beds in Victoria.

But what Daniel Andrews won’t say is there’s yet to be one dollar of government funding allocated beyond land purchase – not a cent has been announced to build new centres or employ rehabilitation support staff.

Daniel Andrews is full of bluster, but fails to follow up with action.

The lives of addicts and their families are being destroyed by insidious drugs like ice and heroin.

Under Daniel Andrews’ watch, drug crime has spiralled out of control, drug use has skyrocketed, and wait lists for drug treatment have blown out to over a year.

Only the Liberal Nationals have a plan to tackle the drug epidemic through targeted education, better access to drug treatment and bringing down the drug kingpins that prey on vulnerable people in our community.
