When we started Recovery Direct’s rehabilitation facility, we sought to identify five professionals who could assist drug addicts and alcoholics into long term recovery. What we found, however, were a number of recovery referral services to drug rehabs in Cape Town. These addiction referral services are seemingly paid by rehabs to send patients to their rehabilitation centre facilities.
Referrals of individuals looking to kick the habit are thus incentivised by which rehabilitation centre is willing to pay the most for new patient admission, not by the what treatment is best suited for the patient.
As the initial stepping stone into rehab, this admission process is flawed as a fundamental “first step” into recovery and should never be tainted by any services that are more concerned by which rehab centre will pay a higher commission.
Recovery Direct does not use “middle man” services. All admissions into our rehabs are managed by our team of drug and alcohol professionals in South Africa. If patients do not require admission to one of our rehabilitation centres, we advise the best course of action to the patient in dealing with their drug or alcohol abuse issues.
Why admit a patient to a rehabilitation centre as opposed to joining a Narcotics or Alcoholics Anonymous group?
12 Step addiction treatment centres provide little more than what addicts and alcoholics gain from visiting the freely available alcoholics anonymous or narcotics anonymous groups and meetings. The anonymous groups do provide substantial support to long-term recovery in patients. However, they do not always cater for the initial phases of breaking active addiction. Many archaic principles of recovery perpetuate the process and frequently result in ongoing relapse if the underlying causes of the addiction are not dealt with upfront. One of these underlying causes is trauma.
Recovery Direct was formulated by Vaughan Pankhurst and the Recovery Direct team to address the fundamental shortfalls in dealing with addiction in the context of professional workplace environments.
