Understanding our drug-taking society

“According to South African Community Epidemiology Network on Drug Use, in the Northern Cape, 36% of patients admitted to rehabilitation and treatment centres for substance abuse were aged between 10 and 19,” said Shamos.

The Youth Risk Survey of 2002 revealed that 49% of teens use alcohol while 31% smoke cigarettes and 13% used dagga (cannabis).

The issues ia that drug and alcohol abuse eats away at people’s lives, families, resources and their ability to cope.

“Most of us use drugs every day – caffeine, nicotine, alcohol,”. “Ours is a drug-taking society and more people are abusing drugs today than in any other time in history”


Online Therapy and Addiction Counselling Services

Individual counselling for drug addictions has proven to be one of the most effective ways to combat addictions and for clients to sustain their lasting sobriety and meaningful personal growth. Many people think that substances are the core of the addiction problem. However, substances are very often a temporary solution or coping mechanism used by the person to cope with deeper issues that exist in their emotional wellbeing. These emotional layers form over time and may need to be addressed through more focused talk therapy or addiction counselling.
