AAIC (Australian Anti Ice Campaign) are Educating & Raising Awareness of the dangers associated with the drug ICE, which is currently a growing epidemic in our nation.
We are inviting the community to unite with us in this campaign to “Put the Freeze on ICE”.
AAIC have a proven role model program that has been implemented in over 8 states in the USA with outstanding results decreasing ICE/Meth use in over 8 states in the USA by 80 per cent.
The USA is currently collating with us to help us implement this program nationally within Australia.
AAIC is ready to launch a National Education program about ICE into High schools across Australia. Along side this we will be holding forums within the community to well inform our nation of the dangers associated with ICE use. We have commercials, social media adverts and billboards ready to saturate our nation warning them about this highly addictive and destructive drug ICE.
We have the support of Local MP’s, as well as Mayor Tom Tate and have been in correspondence with the Federal Health Minister Hon Sussan Ley.
We are generating some serious media publicity from newspapers, magazines as well as online news and channel Seven Sunrise, today weekend show, Sunday Night, ABC a current affair and 60 minuets whom want to hear and expose what AAIC is doing about our national ICE issue. As we continue to unite the services and communities throughout every state including nurses, police and members of society, we invite you to consider the power in unity against this devastating problem.
Community Development Response to ICE & Other Drugs
Alongside the intervention within schools, we offer public community forums at the local town halls to educate the community on the same topics, with experts from rehabs and detox centers that will talk on intervention, family support and treatment options. This is an opportunity for parents to attend.
School counselors and chaplains will also be invited from the schools that receive the school based drug education. Community agency workers will be invited from the key agency services attending the public forum, including Youth Justice & other youth services, housing, legal, financial, health etc. as well as local volunteers from existing support groups such as Narcotics Anonymous. These community workers & volunteers that will be trained, will comprise of local members of their own community that want to develop skills to provide these brief and early interventions.
These community workers & volunteers will also be trained to facilitate and run support groups for loved ones of drug users to empower them to deal with ICE & Other Drugs in their family context and encourage their loved one that is using to seek help.
We have developed a strategic alliance and partnership with ‘Optimal Health Group’, that provides an intense 2 day Dual Diagnosis (Alcohol, Other Drugs & Mental Health) Training ( http://dualdiagnosistraining.com.au/) workshop to equip these workers in the local community to deliver a brief and early intervention to people using ICE and other drugs. People will participate in 2 days of intensive training, covering all of the current evidence based, best practice in the Alcohol & Other Drugs (AOD) and mental health industry from a holistic framework. The Dual Diagnosis Consultant delivering the training has 22 years of clinical experience and 14 years as an educator to Government and Non-Government organizations in Australia as well as being an ex-addict for over 7 years himself.
By way of summary, we aim to offer each local community, resources to respond to ICE and other drugs, using a Community Development approach by providing school based drug education, (grades 7-12), community awareness and education via public community forums and Dual Diagnosis Training to empower local communities to develop sustainable interventions to deliver brief & early interventions and family support
Our Goal is to saturate our Nation with awareness and warning of the devastating effect of ICE, through Education, Commercials, Billboards, Social Media.
