The current government approach to educating our youth as to the dangers of using ICE have failed and are continuing to fail.
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 nearly 10,000 new, young, regular or dependent Australian ICE users every year.
Many of these 10,000 young Australians will become addicted to ICE and very few of those who do (estimated at 2%) will ever escape this addiction. Some will escape their addiction through suicide or through death by overdose.
Those few who do escape may often carry psychological and physical scars for the rest of their lives.
The AAIC Program, which has reduced ICE use amongst teenagers in eight states of the United States by up to 63% 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.
In this same time, ICE use amongst Australian teenagers has skyrocketed.
We have been continually frustrated by the State and Commonwealth Governments failure to assist us financially and now call on the Australian people to join the AAIC ARMY and help fund this program.
We seek a small monthly tax deductible commitment, from as little as $10 a month from Australian businesses and individuals. Our commitment is to ensure that for every $10 donated, one Australian high school student will undergo the intensive AAIC In-School Education Workshop Program.
If you are unable to commit to a regular monthly donation, then you can help by making a once off donation of $10 or more.
All contributions are greatly valued. Together, as a community, as an Army, we can help to Put the Freeze on ICE and help protect our children, and our grandchildren from this insidious drug.

All donations are tax deductible.
We would also greatly appreciate it if you could forward this link address to all your friends and family, and if possible, encourage them to join the AAIC ARMY in the fight against ICE.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT.
