Importance of aftercare program:
Recovery is an on-going process. Aftercare helps service users maintain sobriety, regain citizenship and develop to their full potential. It can be challenging to maintain sobriety in the society than it is in the treatment centre for substance use disorders. The aftercare program protects individuals from, temptations or triggers and possibility for relapse.
Our target systems are services users who are in early recovery, who completed their rehabilitation or treatment program. Service users who recently completed their rehabilitation program at SANCA Limpopo Alcohol and Drug Centre are advised to arrange with their Social Worker to discuss this option. Service users who are referred or coming from other treatment centres or organisation are expected to produce certificate or a letter that confirms the completion of the primary care or rehabilitation program. There will be a fee incurred for the intake and assessment after which there is no charge for our Aftercare program.
