Know Us

The South African National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (Sanca) Soweto Treatment Centre is a non-profit organization that was established in 1980 by SANCA Johannesburg. It came into existence as a response to growing problems of Substance Abuse in Soweto.
The population growth of Soweto, the prevalence of drugs, the demand for substances treatment programmes and political evolution made the organization to be available to render its services for harm reduction and fighting substance abuse within the community
In 2005 Sanca Soweto got its autonomy from SANCA Johannesburg and now independent under the affiliation of Sanca National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence.
Sanca Soweto has a rich tradition of developing Programmes for addicted children and adults and also addressing substance abuse in the early stages of addiction.
