Extended Care

Our aim is to provide a continuum of extended care of 3 to 4 weeks that follows directly after clients have completed the inpatient program for Alcohol And Drug Abuse.

During the client’s stay at extended care, we aim to:

  • Support clients through the early stages of recovery in a safe, caring and structured environment.
  • Address unresolved issues such as losses, trauma and dysfunctional childhood experiences, as well as current family issues.
  • Help clients to consolidate changes to negative behaviour and attitudes that would obstruct their recovery.
  • Enable clients to start experiencing the benefits of recovery in the real world.
  • Continue building relapse prevention tools to help clients thoroughly prepare for re-integration into their home, work and social environments.
  • Ensure that the client returns home with a supportive and realistic recovery plan.

Various aspects that are covered in the program include the following:

  • Working with denial
  • Differentiating between substance abuse and dependence
  • Components of the addictive personality
