Narconon Cape Town was started after the now Executive Director – Robert van der Feyst – returned from successful rehabilitation at Narconon Denmark. He had spent 10 years struggling with addiction and after reaching a point on the program where he was finally free from the need to take drugs he wanted to spread what he had discovered – that drugs are not the way to happiness, satisfaction and spiritual advancement and the reasons why they in fact make life worse.
Upon returning to Cape Town and completing study on how to deliver effective drug education from Narconon International, delivery of drug prevention started. Soon afterwards Sam Mogorossi did the program in the new Narconon centre in Johannesburg and upon completion joined Narconon Cape Town as the other director delivering the program in Xhosa and Sotho. Since then we have grown to 7 full and part time staff, reached hundreds of thousands of people through live programs at schools, businesses and other institutions and millions more through television, radio and other media.
Our purpose is not only to prove WHY drugs are not the way to a better life, but also to provide ways that do.
