Christian Action for Dependence (CAD)

SOUTH AFRICA | WEBSITE | FACEBOOK | Broadcast schedule
CAD is a dynamic organisation that works across South Africa in an attempt to reduce the amount of substance dependency relapses with the end goal of long-term sobriety.
Substance dependency is one of the biggest challenges in South Africa and one of the leading causes for growing criminal activity, school drop out rates, gang affiliations and child headed households. However, there has been continuous lack of emotional, physical and financial support due to stigmas and stereotypes that are attached to substance dependency. That is why CAD chooses to support and help the rehabilitation of such a vulnerable population so that a difference can be made for the greater good of the whole of the country.
As you can imagine a substance dependency organisation is usually last on the list when it comes to receiving volunteers and donations. Therefore, we are open to any contribution that can assist CAD start support groups within every community so that substance dependents and their families have accessible and available support structures to ensure relapse prevention.
CAD will be the vehicle that drives recovering addicts towards the road of recovery rather than to the vast emptiness of relapsing
