About Foundation Partners

The Australian Anti Ice Campaign (AAIC) is a Division of Global Care Australia. We aim to expose the drug Ice for what it really is, an insidiously poisonous chemical concoction that eventually, and often rapidly, destroys the physical and mental health of almost everyone who uses it, with the destruction of families and friendships, and often suicide, as the ultimate outcome.

The National Ice Taskforce 2015 made a number of significant findings relating to Ice use by Australia’s youth, including:   

  • In the six years between 2007 and 2013, the number of Australians aged 14 to 19 using Ice tripled;   
  • Of even greater concern, in the three years between 2010 and 2013, the number of Australians males aged 14 to 19 using Ice nearly doubled;  

In the six years up to 2016, wastewater smpling recorded significant increases in methamphetamine discharge, with 480% increases in some areas.

Recent Household Survey data has shown an increase in weekly Ice use from 12% of self reporting Ice users in 2010 to 32% in 2016. The taskforce reported that the majority of these new dependant or addicted Ice users are young people smoking Ice.

Other research conducted at the University of South Australia found brain wave patterns and physical movement patterns similar to the early onset of Parkinson’s Disease in adolescents who had used Ice only five or six times. 

Together, these figures indicate a potential national catastrophe!

AAIC is implementing a radical intervention to address this potential catastrophe.

AAIC employs and trains people who have recovered from Ice addiction to integrate their own horrific stories into a high impact Education Workshop promoting our core message – Not Even Once.

We aim to rapidly expand our existing program to deliver the AAIC Education Workshop Program in all Australian High Schools, Clubs and in at risk Industries and to establish AAIC Community Ice Action Teams (AAIC CIAT's)  delivering a range of AAIC Ice Education, Awareness and Intervention Programs across the nation. 

AAIC also train and equip Education Workshop Presenters to fill a second role of “Lived Experience Buddy” - assisting people who are trying to escape Ice addiction and people in recovery from Ice addiction and families struggling with a love one using Ice.

Every life matters – every family matters. AAIC is committed to a future where all Australians understand the incredibly destructive nature of Ice use.

Foundation Partners
