Mobilising Western Cape against Substance Abuse

Mobile Counselling

This morning part of a dream came to a reality for me as we had representatives from various non-profits, NGOs, Government departments, community groups and citizens coming together to plan the rollout of a Western Cape Mobile Substance Abuse Counselling Service. As a group we are piloting a distributed mobile counselling service across the Western Cape starting in 5 high risk districts. This will allow local organisations to engage with people at risk or in need with support using mobile phones like our Drug Advice Support service but with a Department of Social Development referral system to support it. With this new development we are looking forward seeing how lives can be reconstructed using mobile and internet technologies.
