Community Based Treatment
Hope House runs a Community Based Treatment Programme with cildren who seem vulnerable or have already dabbled in substances. Small groups of children are counselled and educated in a group setting for 12 weeks. In this time we educate these young people about the dangers of substance abuse, speak about deep hurts and show them wise alternatives.
We help learners understand the reality of drugs and alcohol. We do this by educating them on both the short- and long-term effects on their brains and implications for their future.
While many of the learners who attend the course have already experimented with substance use, we intervene and teach them tools to withstand the pressures that they face as well as making them aware of the dangers of continued use.
