As most parents are aware that, adolescence alone is a very challenging and highly complex time for our young folk. Exploring and attempting to uncover one’s own identity as an adolescent can be an daunting phase in one’s life.
The earlier you seek help for your teen’s behavioral or drug problems, the better. The adolescent programme provides an opportunity for struggling adolescents to be a part of a community of peers who are experiencing similar issues. In addition, the programme allows the adolescent to evaluate and address his or her identity and self-worth.
Parental guidance and involvement from an integral aspect of the Adolescent Programme.

Relapse Prevention offers a residential treatment programme, providing our patients with an environment for safe detoxification and rehabilitation. Each patient receives a complete medical examination and comprehensive bio-psychosocial assessment, which provides the basis for an individual specific treatment plan.
A variety of therapeutic approaches are used to facilitate the recovery process – these include Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and 12-Step facilitation. These approaches are utilised in the context of group therapy, one-on-one counselling and educational workshops. A strong family programme and a thorough aftercare plan underpin the RP programme.
Our dedicated multi-disciplinary team comprising of medical doctors, psychologists, social workers, occupational therapists, certified addiction counsellors and nursing staff ensure that all our patients are given professional and specialised individual care.

Secondary Care is a residential treatment environment, which allows individuals additional time to deal with their addiction and underlying or related disorders. Dual diagnoses are therefore addressed at this stage of treatment.
The treatment environment is structured and nurturing, allowing the therapeutic process to unfold. The secondary care programme allows patients more freedom to interact with their community, facilitating a process of reintegration.
The core emphasis of this programme is the development of responsibility and self-awareness. Our patients are affirmed and assisted with rebuilding self-confidence and self-worth required to lead a healthy and independent lifestyle in recovery.
The programme consists of a combination of daily group therapy sessions, individual counselling, workshops, exercise, family support, re-integration activities and aftercare.

Treatment in terms of seeing addiction as a disease and that the long term goal of treatment should be total abstinence from all mood and mind altering chemicals and an ongoing ability to live life on life’s terms and to be able to deal with painful emotions and replace addictive behaviours with healthier choices. It also draws on some of the 12 Step fellowship traditions (meeting sponsors and working the steps etc) – and considers that a deepening awareness of these steps is crucial to maintaining a successful recovery. It is within the context of this very general plan that we personalize each clients’ treatment.
Long-term addiction treatment plan is based on ongoing assessments from various sources and ultimately results in an agreement between the local counsellor, other treatment staff and the client must be reached around short, medium and long-term goals for each client. These goals, while being broadly similar, (abstinence from chemicals, changing addictive behaviours etc) will be specifically suited to the differing backgrounds, capabilities and life circumstances for each individual.
