Community Based Projects

 

Grassy Park

This project focuses on substance dependence and abuse in schools in Grassy Park. I provide individual assessment and therapy for adolescents struggling with addictive chemicals and behaviours, as well as violence-related problems. I also work with schools to develop specific protocols for addressing these issues, on addiction education, and to train teachers further on addiction related matters.

 

 

 

Lavender Hill

The Lavender Hill Community project provides pro bono outpatient drug rehabilitation, using a 16-week programme adapted from the Matrix Model. The Matrix Model is a structured, manual-based treatment programme that has been extremely well researched for over a decade in the USA, and has already been successfully applied to two other community schemes in South Africa.
