Our employees consist of Addictologists (addiction therapists) with extensive experience in the treatment of various types of addictions. Many of the staff have their own direct experience from, substance abuse, eating disorders, and a wide variety of behavioural issues that surround addiction. Having known the pain, the consequences and the hopelessness of suffering in addiction’s clutches, we have the learned the subtle and discreet nature of this issue and yet have also found many solutions to the inherent problem.
All addiction topics are basically interrelated to a wide range of psychological or behavioural disparities. The core of this disorder is a complex turmoil of “feeling on the outside” or “feeling different”, “lack of sense of identity”, “low self-esteem” and a broad range of self defeating emotions that are directly related to an “inner emptiness” that is then subsequently “filled” by drugs, alcohol, or self destructive behaviours. This condition stems often from growing up in a dysfunctional family and creating or having learned bad behaviours that in turn echo into adult relationships and present self defeating behaviours.
In our addictions programme in Cape Town, we treat the primary disorder, that in turn resolves the symptoms. We see addictions to alcohol, drug, sex, gambling as symptomatic of the underlying issue, resolve the issue and the symptom will go away of it’s own accord.
Many people who suffer from addiction are shameful and it is difficult to take the first step to ask for help or even want to go to a primary care rehabilitation facility away from family and work. Recovery Direct creates a homely “comfort zone”, where patients find security that leads them to trust and process. Here, the problem is mapped out through a conversational assessment and we can create an individualised client and family treatment program.
Our treatment program is structured clearly and is well-tested. Some of the benefits are that clients can continue with the daily routines and contact with family and children, and not least the job. The program involves a great commitment and willingness from the client, but the benefits are many.
We have extensive experience in supervising staff working in the field of drug abuse, and conducting lectures for municipalities, private and public institutions around addiction, family issues and sustainable addiction treatment and recovery.
Recovery Direct also develops day care outpatient programs, aftercare programs, and day-to-day treatment programs, and supervise all staff sessions with counselling de-brief process to ensure that the best course of treatment is always adhered to and that the successful treatment remains paramount. Most of these programs are trauma treatment based, which allows qualified trauma and addiction treatment counselling staff to easily follow a core structure from where treatment can start and be of most effect to the patient concerned.
We can also guide families who have a child who is addicted to what they can do for a chance that their close may have the opportunity to lead a healthy life again. Read more about the family therapy here.
Recovery Direct are specialists in helping employers detect dysfunctional employees in the workplace and construct new strategies that will eventually prevent sicknesses, injuries, staff turnover and loss of productivity at work due to active addictions in the work place.
