In Mauritius, people, organisations and facilitators change in order respond to the drug challenge.
People, families and communities change:
From the people who recovered from addiction and are now supporting others to do the same we learn that:
1) Human strengths and hope never get depleted. Everyone can change.
It is possible to get out of alcohol or drug addiction no matter how long one has been in.
2) Recovering from a drug addiction requires a most human and profound transformation.
3) Even though the choice to stop an addiction needs to come from within the person, most people need others to get out of it.
