This bulletin describes trends in methamphetamine use over 20 years among two sentinel samples in Darwin, the Northern Territory. Research suggests that increased crystal methamphetamine (‘ice’) use is associated with poor health outcomes and decreased utilisation of health services. Therefore, this bulletin also investigates differences in sociodemographic, health, and service utilisation between those who use crystal methamphetamine less than weekly and those who use weekly or more frequently.
