BENEFITING: VIFUKOFUKO ADOLESCENT RECOVERY CENTER
Vifukofuko Recovery Center's mission is to provide a safe residential, educational and therapeutic environment that promotes freedom and abstinence from addiction to drugs and alcohol for adolescents and to bring education and awareness to our students/clients and their families about addiction, HIV and AIDS. This is done in a setting where the student/client can continue their secondary education. Our target population is adolescents between the ages of 14 and 24 who have been identified by their secondary school(s), the Probation Department or other institutions as having alcohol and other drug addictions. There are four key components to our program, which lasts between six months to one year, depending on the student/client: Alcohol/Drug Treatment Classes, Secondary School Education Classes, Job Training, Education and Support for the Families.
