The Rock Restoration Home

Today on Sakhisizwe we had Kurt Olivier, Denver Losper and Lee Arendse from The Rock Restoration Home speaking to us about their organisation. It's an outpatient treatment facility in the Mitchell's Plain area focussing on prevention and treatment of alcohol and drug addiction.
Giving those affected by substance abuse not only a safe space to recover, but also life long support on all other facets of their recovery and reintegration into society.

Kurt, Lee en Denver also told us about their own experiences with substance abuse and how those caused them to start up, or get involved with The Rock Restoration Home.
Denver and Lee are both part of the Big Buddy project, in which new people at The Rock get linked to older recovered drug users to support them. 

For those wanting to reach out to them the contact details are (The Rock is not exclusive to the Mitchell's Plain area so everyone is welcome):
