The Haven Addiction Recovery Centre

The Haven Addiction Recovery Centre
The Haven is one of South Africa’s best addiction treatment facilities and is internationally recognised for clinical excellence. It is located close to Plettenberg Bay and Knysna in the heart of South Africa’s beautiful Garden Route.

The Haven is a beautiful and comfortable Cape Dutch country house, standing amidst six hectares of formal gardens and woodland, bordering Harkerville indigenous forest. Clients will have the opportunity to enjoy some of the worlds’ most spectacular beaches and countryside.

At the Haven, we believe that addiction is a treatable condition. Addiction rehabilitation treatment programmes at the Haven, are based upon a multi-modal approach yet also tailored to each individual client’s needs. The programme is evidence-based and includes individual and group therapy sessions, with a strong focus on information sharing from both a 12 step as well as a psychodynamic perspective.

We also explore possible underlying causes of the addiction. We have seen many participants turn a life of slavery to addiction and hopelessness into one of hope and healing.

A medically managed detoxification programme is available for those clients who need it can be arranged.

An aftercare program is formulated for all clients before they leave the rehabilitation centre, with appropriate referrals in place for a successful transition.

The Haven is fully registered with the South African Department of Social Development and the Board of Health Care Funders.
