Substance Abuse

The pervasive nature of substance abuse makes this a very difficult issue to digest especially when it affects work performance and behaviour. Our show on substance abuse show follows the stories of three colleagues, each with their own habit… as well as their own excuses, their own dreams, and their own fears. The show incorporates pertinent facts and storyline elements that create opportunities for those in the audience to identify with and regard in a positive light.

Using humour juxtaposed with the severe ramifications of substance abuse, the audience are given an objective overview of the impact of substance abuse on individuals, families, businesses and the communities in which we live. Our show finds positive messages in this dark subject by injecting an ethos of hope into even the most abused hearts – without being deluded enough to think that a 35-min show on the subject can do more than equip people with useful facts and information.

We therefore work closely with your Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) service providers or apprpriate wellness consultants to provide comprehensive referals to available support structures.
