Local Drug Action Committee inducted

15 May 2017

The Kouga Local Drug Action Committee (KLDAC) had their first induction workshop on the role of the structure in combatting substance abuse in the area.

The induction took place at the Humansdorp Council Chambers last week Wednesday and was led by the provincial Substance Abuse, Prevention and Rehabilitation section of the Department of Social Development, in conjunction with Kouga Municipality.

KLDAC Chairperson Calvin Jaars said the committee needed the induction to ensure that members understood the broader concept and were guided by a framework in executing their tasks.

“It’s a monumental task that we have ahead of us, as substance abuse levels haven’t shown a significant decrease,” he said.

The session focused on three areas that the group needed to focus on moving forward, which are: Demand Reduction, Supply Reduction and Harm Reduction.

Jaars said the KLDAC will hold their strategic planning session on 7 June.

 “There we will focus on developing our own Mini Drug Master Plan, which is a localised version of the provincial and national plans,” he said.

The committee will be embarking on campaigns targeting schools in the area in the near future.

For more information on how to work with the committee and how to be part of the strategic planning session, interested parties can contact KLDAC Secretary Gene Thube on 042 200 8302 or emailgenet@kouga.gov.za
