substance abusers turn over a new leaf

BY Bay FM

 A group of substance abusers in the Gelvandale area have been given a new lease on life this past week, after attending the Anathallo 10 Step Recovery & Life Skills Impartation Workshop.
The program, written and presented by Ignacio Schneider, aims to assist substance abusers towards recovery and restoration. It couples biblical principles with experience of substance abuse and formal rehabilitation. Mr Schneider himself was a substance abuser for 12 years.
The first workshop, which started on 10 October, was attended by Weldon Mentoor, Sagren Erasmus, Georgia Langford, Lester Stevens, Christopher Moss and Jillian Williams
 
“The visible change in the attendees after merely days was amazing. From scruffy to clean-shaven, from sagging shoulders to heads held high,  the change of heart has become apparent on their exterior”, said Schneider.
Facilitator Lucius Hufkie commented that Anathallo focuses not only on the physical and emotional effects of substance abuse, but mainly on the spiritual aspect. Abusers don’t only damage their bodies, but they lose self-confidence and hope. “These substances erode the good from every area of an abusers’ life”.
 
Extensive media coverage in week 1 has sparked the demand for more workshops, particularly in other parts of the Northern areas.
Subsequent workshops will be held as follows: West End Community Centre, 24-28 October; Booysens Park Community Hall 24-28 October; Harvest Christian Centre, Jacksonville 31 October to 4 November. All workshops are from 8am until 2pm on daily. Cost is R500 per participant, inclusive of all learning material and catering.
A call is being made for sponsorship. “Not everyone who expresses interest in the program can afford it. We appeal to our communities to support the initiative and in doing so, help put a life back on the right side of the tracks”, said Schneider.
Contact Ignacio Schneider at 073 302 7666 for further information and registration.
The workshops continue weekly.
