IT’S easy to get into drugs, but it’s difficult to get off them, this according to young Kokstad drug addicts.
Fever journalist attended a two-hour session with Kokstad drug addicts, who are seeking help.

During the session prayers and inspirational words are delivered to drug addicts by Govender, Pienaar and Ruiters.

Princilla Fynn (52), thanked the programme for helping to release young people from drugs.
“My 24-year-old son is trapped in drugs. He told me that every day he has to buy whoonga at a cost of R100. He is not working and last week he was caught stealing in the area to buy whoonga.
“I believe that these former drug addicts [Pienaar­, Ruiters and Govender], will help my son get off drugs.”
