Admissions Speak To A Counsellor


Let’s deal with addiction recovery

You cannot put a price on your life, or the life of your loved one.

Treatment is Available
South Africans and overseas visitors are able to find effective private care treatment for drug, alcohol and other addiction related disorders on our Cape Town facility. Recovery Direct specialise in process or behavioural disorder addiction treatment, which does not require the same medical supervision as drug & alcohol patients. Specialised treatment services are tailored for individuals suffering from gambling, sex and food addictions.
Residential Treatment
Options tailored to meet a range of patient outpatient and inpatient treatment requirements. There is no one size fits all “package” and treatment varies on a patient by patient basis depending largely on their stage of recovery.

Costs can be further defined by the model of treatment required and specialist intervention required to effectively treat the patients long term success.

Secondary Care & Halfway House
Patients seeking a secondary treatment facility or halfway house; (whom have already been through detox) will find our room rates cheaper than many hotels in Cape Town. Still maintaining the structured format of primary care and the professional support structures needed to deal with reformatting life in sobriety.

We can accommodate individuals in our affordable halfway house and secondary treatment centre facilities.

Other Recovery Services
There are a number of treatment centres that are either state / charity or church funded facilities available to members of the public in South Africa. These are chiefly managed by the Department of Social Development. Free facilities are notoriously difficult to get into due to the high demand thus the bulk of free “treatment” happens in the rooms of autonomous and anonymous 12 step organisations. Department registered private facilities are not always free. Some “government registered” rehabs are more expensive than Recovery Direct’s private care centre. Most of the free rehab services exist in the format of Anonymous group meetings like AA or NA.
Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient treatment enables patients to remain in a structured and accountable cycle of relapse prevention whilst maintaining on a course of ongoing recovery. Outpatient treatment is a lot more affordable for patients as there is no residential component or requirement for multiple specialists.

Recovery Direct started out as a dedicated outpatient programme working with individuals that maintain seemingly “normal” lives. Working professionals, mothers, household providers. Outpatient enables individuals to resume day to day functions yet align their lives around sobriety in the shortest time frame possible.

Home Detox
Home detox is not a recommended route for individuals that has entrenched addition problems. That said however due to the cost of private residential detox treatment and the typical destructive lifestyles of addicts a home detox is frequently the only viable option. In these cases our recommended train of thought would be to meet with one of our counsellors to understand the degree of the addiction and the actual risks involved in the cessation of the substance. In cases where residential treatment is not a viable option we would recommend a physician to oversee the process and work with the family to ensure that the detox process / environment as closely mimics that, that would be undertaken in a detox facility.

Break the cycle, develop the life skills, handle cravings, avoid relapse triggers and starting a constructive path forward.
