Facilitating of street connected youth from Kitale to attend at residential rehabilitation at a treatment centre in the neighbouring town of Eldoret. For alcohol addiction the period of rehabilitation is 3 months and for drug addiction the period is 6 months. Following the period of rehabilitation the youth will be supported in terms of appropriate accommodation and in provision of skills and opportunities for earning a livelihood.
In order to cope with the challenges of street life many youth rely on substances. For many this results in an addiction which without professional support and intervention they cannot overcome. Many of the young people use glue initially and then move on to alcohol and other drugs. Unless this cycle of addiction is broken it is impossible for the young person to have an opportunity of a fulfilling life.
For the young people who are dependant / addicted to substances attending at residential rehabilitation treatment centres will provide them with the opportunity to leave behind substance abuse. On completion of the treatment the programme will assist them in accessing appropriate housing (may be at a different location from where there were before treatment so support will be required in this transition), on-going support and the acquisition of skills whether in a trade or in running a business.
Giving these young people the possibility of a life free from the trials of addiction will give them freedom to explore opportunities for a better life for themselves and will allow them to establish families where they have a better opportunity to support them.
