JOHANNESBURG - Johannesburg Mayor Herman Mashaba says the city will open more rehab centres in an effort to curb drug abuse, especially among the youth.

On Monday, Mashaba officially opened the refurbished Golden Harvest Inpatient Treatment Centre in Randburg. The centre will accommodate nearly 60 children who are battling with drug abuse.

It’s the third facility Mashaba has opened so far this year.

The mayor says he plans to launch more rehab centres in the coming weeks.

“At the moment we have three. We will open two before the end of June while the others will be dealt with from the 2018/2019 budget approved last week.”
