Nieuwefontein Empowerment Centre

 

 

NieuwefonteinEmpowerment Center (NEC) is a rehabilitation and recovery center situated in the beautiful Karoo, approximately halfway between Cape Town and Johannesburg. Substance abuse in South Africa is rising at a rapid rate and for over a decade NEC has been facilitating the restoration of lives and maintenance thereafter, of all our residents. NEC offers a solution for everyone who suffers from chemical substance abuse, prescription medication addiction, and alcohol addiction. We are a private facility, not funded by the Government.

 Anyone who has endured trying times as a victim of chemical substance abuse, including prescription drugs, can get all of the help that they need in a loving caring environment here at Nieuwefontein Empowerment Center.

 The diagram above illustrates how the disease of addiction affects both our mind and body. As chronic addicts, we get caught in a vicious cycle and are unable to break free on our own. Understanding addiction cycle will help us realize how this disease operates and why we need to look outside ourselves for a solution to recover.

  Drug abuse disrupts our brain’s communication system

  The way our brain nerve cells send, receive, and process information becomes abnormal

  Our reaction towards drugs becomes abnormal – we take more despite harmful consequences
