Western Cape MEC of Social Development Albert Fritz over 10 157 people access substance abuse services in the province and the department plans to expand community-based treatment programmes with a focus on rural areas. 

Drugs have riddled communities in Cape Town for many years.

“This year our budget that we will spend on substance abuse is R82.6 million and we are very excited that we can make difference and some interventions going in the area of substance abuse, specifically in the Cape Flats

We will also look on continuing to specifically look at our fantastic models like the school early intervention that we running at about six schools now. We want to roll that pile up throughout the province and to areas that we have seen in the rural areas where drug use is also now increasing” Fritz added.
