Success Stories

Turning Point for homeless, young mom…

A woman aged 26 was referred to our organization due to her substance use and being homeless. The client was referred to a shelter where she completed a 3 week program. Suzanne* was then referred back to Equilibrium, where she completed our 8 weeks program. Suzanne is on the road of recovery and has found employment at Excellence Meat Market, motivated to living a healthy and drug free lifestyle.


A choice to abstain…

Austin* was referred to Equilibrium as he had an addiction. Austin, aged 25 completed Equilibrium’s 8 weeks after-care program and is now part of the organizations employment program, in collaboration with the N.Y.D.A. Two months ago he became a proud father and in October he became a husband. A true inspiration to us and many, who thinks addiction is the end of the road…it is NOT!


From “stoep” to matric

Bernard* aged 18, who before completing our Early Intervention program, abused cannabis (dagga), gambled on street corners and constantly standing on the school “stoeps”, is now in matric and preparing to write his matric exam .He is motivated and stands out amongst many who have given up on themselves.
