Ice hell – a mother and son's journey

Jane, a newsagent from Northern Queensland, only found out about her son Will's ice addiction when he was expelled from his private school aged 15. She contacted rehab centres across the state, but Will was either too young, too old or their waiting lists were too long.

Will's life unravelled. He left home and overdosed at 17. When the family GP was unable to get Will into rehab, Jane had no choice but to help him detox at home. After receiving threats from Will's drug world associates, Jane had no choice but to take matters into her own hands. She put her ice-addicted son into her car and drove along the east coast of Australia until Will was accepted into Triple Care Farm’s 12-week residential drug and alcohol program.

Will is now clean and his life is back on track. Jane knows that, unlike many young Australians, Will is one of the lucky ones.

A mother and son

“There have been many parents who have lost their children. They have literally died waiting to go into rehabilitation. That shouldn’t happen in this country.”
