Substance Dependency:
The AHA moments, facing the i
nevitable
and reaching acceptance

-  An in-depth article by Esmé Brink 

It’s a misty and slightly cool winter’s morning when I enter the grounds of the Toevlug Rehabilitation Centre, situated in Worcester, after an hour’s drive over the mountain. A feeling of tranquillity most aptly describes what I experience as I walk towards the office of Theresa Rossouw, the Manager.

The sun starts to light up the beautiful gardens and I spot free-range chickens roaming the grounds, scratching here and there, trying to catch the early morning worms; ponds filled with golden comets gliding through the water; the calm voice of someone providing training in a room nearby; and therapists walking past, smiling, making eye contact.

Nothing could however prepare me for what I experienced that morning after Theresa got up from her seat and called in four patients that are currently undergoing the programme. Four very different individuals who each told me their story and left me vulnerable – naked in the face of the truth, overcome with emotion – and at the same time thankful for never having been caught in the ugly claws of a substance. Here are their very divergent stories.

Moenie Junie dwelms doen nie: Bewusmakingsinisiatief deur Ramot 

Dwelmbewusmakingsweek vind plaas vanaf 24 tot 30 Junie. In ons gejaagde samelewing is ons dikwels so bewus van onsself, maar terselfdertyd so onbewus van ander.

Dit is egter ons verantwoorde-likheid om bewus te wees van middelafhanklikheid. Bewus van die vernietigende gevolge vir die gebruiker en diegene rondom hom/haar.

Toevlug se buitepasiënte program verander lewens

Alkohol- en dwelmmisbruik in ons gemeenskappe is een van die grootste oorsake van misdaad, armoede, verminderde produktiwiteit, werkloosheid, disfunksionele gesinne, politieke onstabiliteit en die toename van kroniese siektes soos MIV VIGS, Tuberkulose, asook beserings en voortydige sterftes.

Donateur maak sy hart oop vir die Jeug van Struisbaai

Die hoë voorkoms van middelgebruik onder jeugdiges in Struisbaai het ‘n plaaslike inwoner en donateur gemotiveer om fondse te skenk aan die Toevlug Rehabilitasiesentrum in Worcester ten einde ‘n uitreikprogram daar te kan aanbied.

Dit is duidelik dat leerlinge geweldig aan alkoholmisbruik blootgestel word asook die gebruik van Mandrax en Tik in hul gemeenskappe.

Funding received for outreach in Elim

In many rural communities such as Elim, there is a very high incidence of alcohol and drug abuse that has a destructive effect on families. It also places a high burden on the community and employers. In these communities, there is a lack of treatment options for substance dependency and there exists a need for specialised addiction services.
