"Faces and Voices of Recovery South Africa advocates
removing the stigma associated with the disease of
addiction. We aim to improve and expand the public's
understanding of addiction as a treatable illness,
and to promote the power of recovery from alcoholism,
drugs and other addictions.
We see all individuals and families experiencing the
harmful effect of alcohol, drugs and other addictions,
finding a pathway to recovery through education, early
intervention, appropriate treatment, family involvement
and community support.
For too long, those most affected by the disease of
addiction, their families and friends, have been absent
from the public debate due to the stigma that is attached
to this disease."
"We believe that through education and by speaking
with one voice, we will send a clear and simple message
of hope, that recovery from alcoholism, drugs and other
addiction is possible."
