Former drug addicts return home


The final group of former substance addicts who were housed at the Peter Nchabeleng Sports Complex in Schoornood outside Jane Furse, have now returned home to their respective families.

This comes after  Makhuduthamaga Local Municipality (MLM) responded to a call by the National Command Council on COVID 19 to give shelter to the homeless since the beginning of the lockdown.

The remaining, who some of them were initially referred to Seshego Rehabilitation Centre in Polokwane, have now survived their prolonged substance abuse and are now ready for a new and hopefully transition of their lives.

Makhuduthamaga’s Cllr Peter Rankoe who is also head of community services, reminded the survivors that “even though you all overcame your addiction in different ways, do remember that recovery is a continuous process. Please continue doing the right thing and don’t be distracted.”

 He said the MLM together with all role players, the department of Social development, the South African Police Services and the Sekhukhune District Municipality are delighted that they were able to transform the lives and make a meaningful societal impact in local communitie.

He  added, “As the country seems to have overcome the surge on COVID 19 and moves  to level 1 as announced by the President, the centre at Peter Nchabeleng Sport Complex has now officially closed and the group will now be reunited with their families and be incorporated back into the society. As part of monitoring, the municipality will now begin with home visits to ensure the group does not relapse and return back to their old ways.”
