Long Term Rehabilitation Program

8 months Residential Program including 2 months of New Life Management

It is evident that drug, alcohol and other substance abuse are for many people, a solution to unresolved problems. The drugs, alcohol and other substances numb the pain and discomfort associated with those problems.

 

Our approach

Our long term rehab program takes a holistic approach and encompasses all aspects of the addicted person’s lifestyle. Recovery does not happen overnight and long-term treatment is both necessary and effective.

We must all understand that there is no quick fix but it is possible to empower a person into a new way of living and no longer rely on drug or alcohol use to cope. It is from this perspective that long term recovery is achievable.

Our long term rehabilitation program

Our long term rehab program addresses the physical, emotional and psychological aspects of addiction. The specifics of each individual’s program may vary depending on their own individual needs. We achieve these fundamental and foundational changes in our residents through a series of approaches to therapy:

Social

Spiritual

Psychological

Cognitive

It is a combination of these approaches that help an individual regain control of their lives.

The long-term residency treatment program is suited for:

  • Individuals that have been abusing drugs, alcohol and other substances for long periods of time.
  • Individuals that have been through various treatment centres and programs.
  • Individuals who have no major social responsibility or employment related responsibility.
  • Individuals who are experiencing severe consequences due to their substance abuse and require long-term inpatient treatment.
  • Individuals who have lost all hope.

The living environment

We provide a sober living environment in Pretoria East where healing, change and growth can happen over a long period of time through daily involvement in a stable program structure.

Long-term drug, alcohol or substance abuse leads to a total breakdown of every aspect of that person’s life. Substance abusers need to be removed from their current social structure and given the opportunity to recover.

The program is a combination of simple things like:

  • Cooking
  • Cleaning
  • Discipline
  • Exercise

As well as more complex issues like:

  • Self-respect
  • Interpersonal relationship development
  • Emotional and psychological well-being

These are most often all the aspects of a problem so severe that it can only be dealt with effectively over a longer period of time within the boundaries of a treatment centre.

Recovery for families and loved ones

Addiction has far reaching consequences affecting not only the addict but loved ones as well.  Time allows for the families affected by substance users to heal and go through a process of recovery for themselves without being affected directly by the process the addict is going through.

Given our experience over the last decade, we have come to see clearly without question that severe addiction and recovery from substance abuse is possible over extended periods of time in an environment that is conducive to recovery.
