Handling a drug abuser

Cedric Parker,Nalini Naidoo who ran a ToughLove Support Group in Westville, Durban, has moved to Pietermaritzburg and will be running a six-week ToughLove course at Wykeham Collegiate.

Sandy Lund, clinical services manager at Sanca said parents of children abusing drugs or alcohol will find the course extremely useful. “Parents find themselves in denial. This kind of behaviour sneaks up on you. At first you think it is typical juvenile delinquent behavior, ToughLove teaches you about the symptoms of drug dependency. Once you realise that the child has a problem, you need guidance on how to put down boundaries in a supportive and structured way.”
