Andrea Simmons talks Ice



“I was a successful business woman, mother and in my 40’s. I’d never been a drug user but it took just one instance of smoking Ice and that was it. It had gripped me. “



We are privileged to share our interview with Andre’a Simmons in one of our first features for the ‘Addictions Recovery Hub’. 


Andre’a Simmons is the director of the Australian Anti-Ice Campaign (AAIC).

In the first video clip, she shares about her own personal journey into what she describes as a ‘soul destroying’ Ice addiction to become one of the 2% who manage to successfully recover.

In the second video clip, Andre’a also sheds insight into the Ice culture within Australia and shares about the work she’s doing nationwide in ‘exposing the enemy’ and raising community awareness.
