Because Everyone’s Story Is Unique

Our primary belief is that no single treatment is appropriate for everyone. We believe that it is harmful to our patients if they are led to believe that if they don’t connect with the established approach and therefore don’t do well in treatment, it’s because of some personal failing. A one-size-fits-all approach can be both ineffective and risky, by forcing an addict into a particular plan that may not work for them personally. This can increase the chance of treatment failure and relapse. We have discovered that the risk of relapse is increased where cookie cutter programs don’t work. Recovering people may come to believe that treatment is a waste of time and simply not for them.

More One-On-One

On study shows that there is a 60% increase in treatment success when individuals are given choices in treatment programs. Prominent addiction psychologist William Miller, PhD argues that this higher rate of success is because individuals who choose their own treatment program, tend to own this choice and stay very committed to the program.

Not Just 12 Step, Not Just Clinical Or Holistic. We Have Unique Blended Solutions

We believe we have harnessed the most successful aspects of treatments and combined them to form a winning formula for the individual. Holistic treatment programs offer a wide variety of activities that are designed to address the reasons underlying substance abuse. We offer individualised health recovery plans designed by our medical professionals, individualised treatment, after-care and follow up plans.

Individual Therapy Sessions – More One-On-One

We offer nature walks, meditation, relaxation therapy, physiotherapy, art therapy, physical exercise, dancing, drumming, voice-movement therapy, animal assisted therapy and other activities designed to enhance the mind-body connection, build self-esteem and support the whole body health.
SUBSTANCE ABUSE TREATMENT PLANS MUST INCLUDE MENTAL HEALTH TREATMENT Many addicted individuals also have other mental disorders. Treatment must address both, including the use of medications where appropriate. We understand that medically assisted detoxification is only the first stage of addiction treatment and on its own does little to change long term drug abuse. Treatment engagement is vital and starts at admission. Dual diagnosis is one of our specialities.

Relapse Intervention For Those Who Struggle With Relapse

We have a programme that assists those who have been devastated by relapsing by focusing on their personal needs and tailoring their treatment to break the relapse cycle.
