Guide to South Africa’s Addiction Rehab Centers

South African rehabs provide amazing natural beauty and unique experiences that are not available anywhere else in the world. Could this be why South Africa is a leading international destination for addiction treatment and recovery from substance abuse?

Using Nature to Heal the Pains of Addiction

Addiction treatment providers in South Africa offer high quality treatment and one-of-a-kind excursions at an affordable price. The ‘South Africa Experience’ offered by many rehabs isn’t just an exhilarating adventure – it is also beneficial for recovery from addictions!

Unique South African History and Culture

South Africa has a thriving and fascinating culture. Centuries of historical, archaeological and cultural heritage, allows clients at rehab in South Africa to experience a truly personal glimpse into the land and its history that only a local can provide.

Addiction Treatment Centers

South Africa has a wide range of private and public addiction recovery and treatment facilities. These centers provide a multifaceted approach comprising both individual and group therapy across a broad range of addiction-related disorders. 


Executive Rehabilitation Centres

Exclusive rehab clinics with programs designed to treat stress, anxiety, depression and burnout in luxury retreats with 5-star facilities often use intensive one on one evidence-based therapy programs with options for treating co-occurring disorders and dual diagnosis. These high-end recovery programs are truly customized around each guests needs (some more than others).

A good treatment provider should offer dignity, discretion and respect but as is the case with rehabs in all countries that are not  heavily regulated, there are always going to be some ‘rouge traders’ who do not uphold the high standards that you might expect!

Quality Drug or Alcohol Treatments for an Affordable Price?
