Cape Town Alcohol and Drug Action Committee in Mitchell’s Plain promotes drug free lifestyle for the youth

Jonathan Jonkers - Chairman of the Cape Town Alcohol and Drug Action Committee for Mitchell’s Plain was Instudio to tell us more about how they promote a drug free lifestyle for the youth. Mitchell’s Plain is one of eight sub committees of the Cape Town Alcohol and Drug Action Committee that was established by the City in accordance with the National Drug Master Plan. The committee includes people from all sectors involved in substance abuse and related problems such as justice, police, probation and correctional services, school, health, social development and community structure officials. The national plan expects sub-committees to develop and maintain integrated drug policies in collaboration with all stakeholders in order to prevent drug related crime and ensure quality of life for residents at community level. The Mitchell’s Plain task team is recruiting community groups to take part in a dance-a-thon next month as programmes will showcase various activities available to the youth as an alternative to substance abuse.
