The current government approach to educating our youth as to the dangers of using ICE is not working.
Recent research suggests that up to 27 young Australians between the ages of 15 - 24 are becoming regular or dependent ICE users every single day. This equates to more than 10,000 every year.
Many of these 10,000 young Australians will become addicted to ICE and most of these will never escape this addiction.
Those few who do escape may often carry psychological and physical scars for the rest of their lives.
The AAIC Program, which is a modified version of a program that has significantly reduced ICE use amongst teenagers in eight states of the United States over the past ten years, provides a radical awakening to our teenagers and the general community as to the incredible dangers of trying ICE, even once.

Through the AAIC Army Public Ambassadors Program, we are calling on celebrities and public figures from all walks of life, to help us to raise awareness of the devastating effects of this insidious drug, particularly for young people.
As an AAIC Public Ambassador, you will be equipped with the knowledge required for you to be able to speak publicly on behalf of AAIC in relation to the extent of the Ice problem and in relation to the AAIC’s program for addressing the epidemic sweeping our nation.
We ask you to record a short video stating who you are, your views on the Ice epidemic, that you support AAIC’s message of ‘Not Even Once’ as far as taking Ice is concerned and encouraging people to join you in the AAIC Army to help Put the Freeze on Ice in this nation.
In addition, we ask our Public Ambassadors to volunteer at least once a year to attend and speak at an AAIC school, club or community event held in the area in which they live.
