A new and potentially deadly mix of alcohol and drugs seizes wealthy suburbs and feeds violence among teenagers.
Children from the age of 13 mix Xanax and Valium with alcohol and take violent action against their parents in Sydney.
Suburbs such as Manly, Brookvale, Bondi and Randwick have all observed an increase in the drug trend known as the & # 39; aggression aperitif & # 39 ;.
The mix of alcohol and medication – which is normally used to treat stress or anxiety – reduces the inhibitions of the user, The Daily Telegraph reported.

Long-term users may exhibit symptoms such as irritability, anger, and aggression.
& # 39; These drugs numb inhibitions and therefore the ability to make rational decisions can be lost – anything mixed with alcohol can cause aggression, & # 39; said clinical manager of Ted Noffs Foundation and drug expert Kieran Palmer.
Chief Inspector Dave Darcy said ice use had fallen while the new trend had been picked up.
He said that teenagers opened all avenues to gain access to prescription drugs.
& # 39; The children get the Valium from their parents and if they cannot go they will go to the doctor – they will find a way & # 39 ;, he said.
A pivot of 30 percent in the use of Xanax is registered among the 120 patients between 13 and 18 who joined the Randwick rehabilitation clinic in the financial year until July 2018.
The National Drugs and Alcohol Research Center of the UNSW 2018 Drugs Trends found 41 percent of the 799 people interviewed who admitted to misuse of non-prescribed benzodiazepines.
Doctor Rose Cantali, a doctor for pedagogical and developmental psychology, noted that doctor shopping had become more common.
& # 39; Last year at the clinic I didn't work on this problem – now we get at least one young person a week begging for benzos, hoping that we will prescribe it when other GPs have rejected it.
Doctor shopping refers to the practice of visiting a large number of doctors and obtaining multiple prescriptions.
Sydney University, neuroscience student Maddy Avery, said that young people also mixed the drugs at parties.
& # 39; I have never personally, but they are popular … people take them with alcohol to relax before or after a party. & # 39;
