Spiritual Leaders of South Africa & Substance Abuse

Addiction in the Community

Spiritual Leaders of South Africa & Substance Abuse, Religious Leaders are often the first port of call in dealing with crises within the community. Substance abuse and related disorders have infiltrated our society and more often, are presenting as common crises to be dealt with. Addiction in the community can be dealt with constructively. Admission into treatment can be facilitated with relative ease and appropriate support.

Houghton House has a training programme aimed at equipping Religious Leaders with the correct information and skills in order to benefit the individual and or family in crises. Details of the Addiction Intervention Programme for Religious Leaders have been outlined below.

  • A brief overview of the intervention process
