Absconding from rehab

Recently one of the boys we have been working very closely with left a rehabilitation centre in Newcastle and returned to Durban. He was unable to overcome his craving for an addictive substance and he battled to follow the rules and procedures at the centre.

His admission was voluntary therefore his discharge was upon his own accord. It has been a hard struggle for both the boy and our I Care outreach worker. We are continuing to monitor the boy and we are still encouraging him to seek relief from his addiction.

Next week, another street child that we have been working with will be admitted into the same rehab centre in Newcastle. We pray that he will have the strength to see the programme through.
