AAIC Services

AAIC has been developing and working on an education awareness and early intervention model which is now ready to be launched into communities throughout Australia.

The education lessons AAIC presents have been successful in 8 states in the USA, dramatically reducing ICE use by up to 80 percent. The principle of course is ‘Prevention is better than cure’. AAIC have been working in conjunction with the Partnership for Drug Free Kids to create a model that is relevant for Australian culture and context.

AAIC offers communities, tools and resources to respond to ICE and other drugs, by incorporating a Community Development approach in providing school based drug education, (grades 7-12), community awareness, education and resources via public community forums with Dual Diagnosis Training to empower communities to develop sustainable interventions to deliver brief and early interventions and family support.

Through a comprehensive and interactive presentation, AAIC will enable you to be informed of the dangers and consequences associated with ICE use. We provide In-school Education programs as well as Community Forums to expose this highly destructive and addictive drug. Along with this program, AAIC offers connection with a large support network of counsellors, rehabilitation facilities and family support groups within your local community.

In-School Education Workshops

These 60 minute interactive workshops deliver:

  • the short and long term effects associated with Ice use,

  • the danger and toxicity of the ingredients in Ice,

  • the mechanism of Ice addiction,

  • the effects on the brain, body, relationships and community,

  • the risks of trying Ice even once,

  • how to communicate the risks of Ice to their peers and to take action to prevent use.

The Meth/Ice Prevention Workshop Lesson Employs 4 Central Instructional Strategies:

  1.  "What Do You Know" Worksheet: Six statements to engage students/public and get them to think about what they know about ICE. 
  2.  Interactive Content: Interactive facts, personal stories and videos to present information from a variety of perspectives.
  3.  Discussion Questions: Open-ended and specific questions spur discussion.
  4.  Peer Engagement and Advocacy: Exercises designed to equip community and or students with information and tools to take action and influence their peers.

To further discuss the lesson or to make a booking for a presentation please contact AAIC.

Involvement

Alongside the intervention within schools, AAIC can set up Community Forums to help educate the community on topics related to Drug/Ice addiction. With the help of experts from rehabs and detox centres, talking on subjects such as intervention, family support and treatment options. This is an excellent opportunity for parents and family members to attend to not only gain a greater understanding of the addiction, but help to formulate ideas to help the addicted.

Key community leaders will be invited to attend the Community Forums. These include, school principals, teachers, counsellors, chaplains, community agency workers, Youth Justice, Youth leaders, representatives from local government, local volunteers, existing support groups, Narcotics Anonymous, health workers etc.

There will also be an opportunity for those interested to partake in extra training to establish, facilitate and run support groups within the local community.

Networking

AAIC has spent a lot of time and energy compiling a database of organisations that can help with drug addiction. 

Training - Community

Community workers, volunteers and families will have the opportunity to be trained in facilitating and running support groups for the loved ones of drug users. AAIC will help empower them to deal with ICE and other drugs in their family, and teach them how to encourage their loved ones to seek help.

AAIC has developed a strategic alliance and partnership with ‘Optimal Health Group’, that provides an intense 2-day Dual Diagnosis Training (Alcohol, Other Drugs & Mental Health) workshop. This will help to equip workers in the local community to deliver a brief and early intervention program to people who are addicted to drugs. It is two 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 organisations in Australia, as well as being an ex-addict for over 7 years.
