Minister Albert Fritz to attend UWC Substance Abuse Graduation

25 August 2014

Minister Albert Fritz will be delivering the keynote address at the University of the Western Cape (UWC) Community Engagement Substance Abuse graduation ceremony.

The ceremony will see 36 community representatives working in the field of substance abuse, graduate from an intensive course and receive their certificates. This course is the culmination of the partnership between the Department of Social Development and the UWC after we identified that there was a lack of training programmes available in the field of drug and alcohol treatment intervention services. The introduction of the course forms part of the Western Cape government’s comprehensive strategy to combat substance abuse in the province.

There will be an opportunity for photos and interviews.
