Last week the head of AAIC Andrea Simmons along with our Care Team Coordinator Leeanne Butcher went to Coffs Harbour to train a new set of presenters that will engage with schools, prisons and the community on the North Coast of NSW.
These presenters are all former ICE addicts with lived in experience and know all about the true dangers and consequences of trying ICE even once. Over the course of the week they were trained in Dual Diagnosis and AAICs evidence-based practice presentation. Next they will be partnered with a more senior presenter to ensure they are fully trained and prepared to bring awareness and education to the community about the dangers of ICE.
It is the hope of both AAIC and the presenters that others do not succumb to dangers of ICE and experience the same torment that they have been through and the effects it has on themselves and those around them. We hope that with this new addition of presenters to the North Coast we will be able to have an impact within the community in reducing/eliminating the usage of ICE and helping those who are currently recovering or still suffering from addiction by providing support and awareness.
