Berends et al., 2011). Since the government is unable to reach all at-risk Australians, carers have been given the power to generate public awareness, treat addicts and initiate recovery programs for relapsing individuals. With adequate care and education, carers can inform the public that are not beneficial to the community, which explains government implementation of programs involving carers. Preventing Australia from being overwhelmed with drug addicts is a societal initiate that has gained support among carers owing to particularly those working with youths ( Battams & Roche, 2011). Carers and consumers are important in the Australian government’s endeavour to reduce the effects of drugs in the country. With adequate care and low consumption levels in tandem with comprehensive policies and legislation, the government can meet its goal of countering rising cases of drug use particularly among Australian youths.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
