Rehab centre generates addiction awareness

Posted On :

SANCA Wedge Gardens was out in full force at Sefako Makgatho Health Sciences University’s wellness event, generating awareness around the dangers of substance use and addiction, and the benefits of being admitted to the centre for rehab.

The wellness event, held on 28 and 29 March, enabled SANCA Wedge Gardens’ employees to interact with medical students and the university’s employees and provide them with information about addiction and how its Full Circle Recovery Programme can assist substance users to beat their addictions.

“We also created an interactive ‘drunk buster’ educational game to give participants a realistic experience of how one’s vision and motor skills become impaired when intoxicated,” says Adèl Grobbelaar, SANCA Wedge Gardens’ manager.

“Many family members and friends of substance users often feel helpless and don’t know how to help their loved ones who are suffering from addiction. The expo also gave us the opportunity to interact with and guide them,” she adds.
