During this period we did not have anyone attending rehabilitation. WOW 4 group received advice and education on addiction from our new counsellor Doreen.
During the period the group also made a 20 minute film entitled "The Street". This movie looked at the challenges that face young street connected people including alcohol and addiction issues.
In January we also had a planning meeting with former street youth leaders to look to see how we can work with leaders of the different street bases. It is hoped in the coming period that a structure can be establised to meet with these youth and see how the issues facing them, including addiction, can be addressed.
As we prepare for WOW 4's graduation we will follow up with them and see what issues they have as they begin training and as they move off the street into houses.
We also will follow up with support to Joe who went to Rehab on two occasions but has again reverted to taking alcohol to excess.
