Outline of typical admissions to Recovery Direct’s treatment centres in South Africa.

We understand the emotional upheavals associated with the reaching out for help with an addiction problem. We have been there and strive to make the process as pain free and natural as possible, guiding patients to their complete addiction recovery.


Every assessment is completely confidential and is non-binding on the patients, this is the first step in order to get help for anyone trapped within an addiction problem.

The First Step
The first step starts by contacting one of our professional addictions counsellors on one of the following.

Meeting / Assessment
Depending on the nature of your first step contact our addictions counsellors will advise on an assessment meeting to determine the progress of the addiction and get an understanding on the core drivers of the addiction and how best to approach the patients successful treatment. Assessment meetings can be conducted telephonically or over skype with our addiction counselors.
Availability / Suitability
Every case is different, not all patients require residential treatment, depending on the outcomes of the assessment we would make recommendations to enter the residential care facility, outpatient treatment programme, specialised counselling or local anonymous meetings e.t.c. Admissions are subject to bed / room availability.
