Having been in the counselling field for over a decade the director realized the challenges of working with clients using substances. As a result of these challenges the director decided to seek knowledge in the field of addiction to help her understand the theories and concepts behind addiction. The learning experience became an eye opener and the director resorted to open a treatment centre. Silwan Fountain Treatment and Recovery Centre was therefore started in early 2018 to cater for the persons struggling with alcohol and other drugs.
Silwan Fountain Treatment and Recovery Centre is certified by National Agency for the Campaign against Alcohol and Drug Abuse (NACADA) having met the requisite requirements.
