2015-10-22 06:00

A NEW rehabilitation centre, which can accommodate up to eight people, will open in Palm beach in December.

Paul and Miemie Putter, who will be running the centre, said they are very excited about the God-driven journey they are about to embark on.

The Putters, both former drug addicts, have been clean for years.

Miemie said she has been clean for over 18 years and wants to help youths who are struggling with drug and alcohol addiction.

“We decided to open the drug centre because we see there is a large number of youth involved in drug abuse.”

She said they will be not be using any medication in the process.

“You can’t use drugs to fight drugs. We will be using biblical values,” she said.

The Putters have signed a partnership with Child Welfare Margate and are looking forward to referrals from them. Their rehabilitation service is free and the centre is legally registered.

“We want to change lives and give the youth a new direction.”
