The 2018 Australian and New Zealand Addiction Conference will be held this month over Monday 28 and Tuesday 29 May with optional workshops on Wednesday 30 May at the QT Gold Coast.
Ms Janice Quadrio, Mental Health Practitioner at Selectability joins us at the Conference to discuss ‘ICE Help is a tailored regional response to ICE use in Mackay and District’.
ICE Help is a tailored regional response to ICE use in Mackay and district with 3 unique characteristics-
– It has had a bottom up grass roots genesis
– The family system is central to the model rather than peripheral, incidental or optional.
– It is a collaborative project between two separate organisations with separate areas of expertise and a common goal of providing a holistic and effective response.
This has led to an innovative and flexible service that is delivering outcomes, and showing great promise as an effective treatment model.
Janice Quadrio is a Social Worker with more than 30 years’ experience and currently employed as a Mental Health Professional with Selectability in a collaborative project with Lives Lived Well to run the ICE Help Project. She works from a strengths based approach within systems theory and her preferred delivery is with an Intensive Case Management Model whereby the clinician is also the Case Manager. Janice has particular expertise in running groups. She has been at the forefront of the NGO response to ICE in Mackay over the past 21/2 years.
