…as Salvation Army hosts reunionAdministrators of the Drug Rehabilitation Programme of the Salvation Army, Captain Matignol and Mireille Saint LoThe Men’s Social Centre of the Salvation Army yesterday held an ex-clients’ reunion and fellowship, with the new members of its Drug Rehabilitation programme, their family members and friends affording some of the ex-clients an opportunity to express their gratitude for the assistance the Salvation Army had provided.The counsellors of the programme noted that the Salvation Army had been helping recovering drug addicts since 1996.Administrator of the programme, Captain Matignol Saint Lot, welcomed everyone to the reunion and noted that the significance of the reunion was in fact that the ex-clients of the programme had been able to live fruitful lives without turning back to drugs.He said that the Salvation Army wanted to celebrate with them (ex-clients) and to show some appreciation that they had stayed clean, while encouraging them to keep up the good work. Saint Lot’s wife, Mireille Saint Lot, reminisced that when many of the ex-clients of the drug rehabilitation programme, who were at the reunion, had first entered the programme, they had left their families.“They left their parents behind,” said Mireille, “and after some time, they started to call me mom, and they started to call Captain (Matignol) dad. They became our children. So today I can say that I am very proud of all my children.”Chairman of the Advisory Board to the Salvation Army, Edward Boyer speaking at the reunion.Some of the ex-clients of the programme shared their stories, and noted that their fight against their drug use had not been easy.

He said that he remembered the constant struggle everyday brought.
