Substance Abuse Recovery Programme | Achieving the Vision.
Why Do We Serve?
The Living Hope Substance Abuse Recovery Programme was established in response to a need of people in Living Hope’s are who were struggling with substance abuse and chemical dependency (addiction).
Who Do We Serve?
Clients who walk in from the street who are in need of help; adult persons male and female who are willing to change and want to receive help.
How Do We Serve?
From the outset we wanted the programme to provide three essential components: 1. A vehicle to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.(A faith-based programme) 2. To be accessible to anyone in need of help. 3. To provide quality Recovery Programme free of charge (no fees) to clients. This remains to this day. The programme commenced in 2010 with the support of the Provincial Dept. of Social Development, local church and general public donations.
The recovery program is a 3 phase program that allows clients to begin at any day of the week, by simply walking in and providing outpatient care. The first phase seeks to build relationships and encourages clients to attend support groups. Random drug testing is done to allow clients to prove they want change in their lives. After 3 weeks they can advance to Phase 2, which is a structured treatment programme with individual counselling. There are specific topics covered in each phase, and at the end of which includes a graduation ceremony. Phase 3 is an aftercare programme integrating spiritual care from the local support groups.
