Awareness and prevention

As a treatment centre we strongly believe that prevention is better than cure.  Toevlug has specific programs that focus on prevention.  These include:

The Horizon Project focusing on life skills for the youth

The name Horizon symbolises the future. The project is thus aimed at the youth who is at the daybreak of a promising future, provided the right choices are made. Youths, both in and out of school, between the ages of 8 – 18 years, benefit from this project which has been utilised since 1988. It is in essence an alcohol and drug prevention project which enables the youth to withstand present-day pressure and make informed choices regarding alcohol and drugs through the acquisition of appropriate life skills.

Goals Of The Project:

  • Consolidation of a healthy value system
  • Acquisition of new skills to enable them to cope with and solve personal problems
  • The development of a positive lifestyle
  • Coping with peer pressure
  • Personality growth and development
  • The development of communication skills
  • Development of self-image
  • Knowledge of alcohol and drugs
