The Drug Squad is here to help.

Are you or a loved one in the claws of drugs and drug lords? Phone the Drug Squad!

ALBERTON- Between them they were addicted to drugs for 41 years, and now they are clean and here to help you and your family win the battle against substance abuse.

Jacques Peterson, who heads up the Drug Squad, and Gary Mortimer have seen the dark underbelly of the drug world, and have been lucky enough to survive to tell the story.

They both now work full time on the Walking with Winners Drug Squad assisting parents and families with interventions. If you are struggling with a loved one stealing your possessions to fuel their drug addiction, threatening you or making your life a living hell, these are the guys to phone. They understand the thought processes of an addict and how to get through to them.

A father of a drug addict writes the following about his experience with the drug squad;

“I met Gary Mortimer at the Boksburg court, while we were waiting to hear about my son’s bail hearing. His shirt had a SWAT logo on and he looked like a policeman. He explained to the people outside the court how Walking with Winners work and that the drug squad supports drug related cases at court, and that they help to get victims out of the claws of drug houses.

“I was stunned to hear that there were people helping in this regard. I confronted my son that night, and after he admitted to having a drug problem he was admitted to the Walking with Winners rehabilitation centre in Walkerville.

“What got to me while talking to Gary was the sincere and strong confidence that he portrayed. I had the strong feeling that this guy is not just another empty bag of promises, but portrays true experience and that mattered to me at that time.

“Last night I spoke to my son for the first time. He sounded well and not miserable at all as I was expecting. The road is still long, but I can truly say I made the right choice, and it is much more positive than I thought it would be. It is good to know that there are still caring people in this sick society that we live in.”
