Drug abuse knows no bounds – it wreaks havoc in the lives of both substance abusers and their families, leaving broken minds, souls and hearts in its wake. A supportive natural modality, known as Acudetox, is available to release sufferers from the grips of their addiction.
According to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), more than 15% of South Africa’s population are problem drug users.

While there is still no clear definition for burnout, it implies that the body’s internal energy system or ‘fire’ is not being sufficiently attended to and is literally ‘burning out’.
