Mascom reaches out to BOSASNET

The acting director of Botswana Substance Abuse Support Network (BOSASNET ) Prisca Mokgadi has hailed Mascom wireless’ financial support as key to helping her organisation to perform community outreach programmes as well as profiling itself.

The NGO provides substance abuse education, prevention, and rehabilitation services to the general public. BOSASNET currently operates an outpatient counselling rehabilitation centre in Gaborone, which opened in September 2010.

The outpatient rehabilitation and support services constitute the Clinical Programme, which is overseen by the Clinical Programme manager and staffed with substance abuse and dependency trained counsellors.

In their profile BOSASNET claim to have assisted clients with use, abuse, or dependency problems with alcohol, cocaine, crack cocaine, crystal meth, heroin, mandrax, nicotine , ecstasy, painkillers, marijuana, sleeping pills, cough syrup, and self-made concoctions.
