ACTS: ADDICTION COUNSELLING TRAINING SCHOOL

GF ACTS is a training school in operation to equip trainees to make an effective difference in people's lives. ACTS functions within a rehabilitation centre, where trainees spend time in study, lectures and practical application with the clients of Gilead Foundations. The training is structured to produce competent, effective, compassionate and gracious workers and counsellors, with whom all clients should feel safe and secure.

GF has many practical therapeutic skills training areas, and trainees will be expected to work alongside clients/students as part of their training.

GF ACTS is offering a one year diploma course in Addiction Studies & Bible theology. GF is also in the process of developing second and third year courses, all leading to International and National Accreditation.
