The Haven Addiction Recovery Centre
The Haven is an addiction treatment facility situated close to PlettenbergBay in the heart of South Africa’s beautiful Garden Route. The Haven is fully registered with the South African Department of Social Development and the Board of Health Care Funders.
The clinic is located at The Huguenot, an imposing and comfortable CapeDutch country house, standing in six hectares of formal gardens and woodland, bordering Harkerville forest and the world renowned Knysna Elephan tPark. All clients will be given the opportunity to closely interact with the elephants under expert supervision.
At The Haven it is our philosophy that addiction is a treatable condition, addiction rehabilitation treatment programmes at the Haven, are based upon a multi model approach and are individually tailored to each individual client’s needs. Addiction rehabilitation treatment programmes are based around Minnesota twelve step system, supported by elements of cognitive behavioural therapy and positive psychology and include both group and individual counselling. We also focus on the underlying causes of the addiction, with personalised assessments and an individually tailored care plan formulated by our clinical psychologist. A medically managed detoxification programme is available for those clients who need it.
As many as 10% of people will, at some stage in their lives suffer from depression, at the Haven we offer an effective treatment programme for this debilitating illness.
At the Haven we believe that successful addiction recovery and rehabilitation can be greatly enhanced by participation in constructive life skills projects such as bee keeping, baking and vegetable gardening.
Clients participating in our three month treatment programme and choosing to learn bee keeping, may leave The Haven equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills to become successful amateur bee keepers.
An aftercare program is formulated for all clients before they leave the rehabilitation centre, with appropriate referrals in place for a successful transition.
