Sessions

Psychotherapy sessions are an integral part of the treatment and recovery process. In order to achieve treatment goals, and for maximum results, our treatment facility does not negotiate when it comes to therapy sessions.

Our sessions are aimed at:

  • Improving or enlightening our patients through psycho-education and lectures about the nature of their addiction and other psychological disorders they may be having.
  • Developing assertiveness so that you can say no to drugs in difficult situations. Refining relationship skills so that you can avoid toxic friendships and repair broken relationships caused by addiction.
  • Improving communication skills so that you express the feelings that lead you to abuse substances.
  • Building your self-esteem so that substance dependency does replace your self-worth.
  • Cultivating stress management so you can better handle the stressors that lead to substance abuse.
  • Enhancing your overall quality of life free from drug abuse.

Individual Psychotherapy Sessions

Patients are allocated private access to our Clinical Psychologist upon arrival. They are assessed and individual therapy sessions are fixed. Our Clinical Psychologist works with the recovering individual through a relationship of confidentiality, trust, and respect. These sessions allow the individual to gain insight into the causes of their substance dependency, psychological disorders, and, more importantly, formulate a treatment plan to implement the necessary changes in the underlying dynamics underpinning their addiction or other disorders. Individual therapy, besides the personal attention that this provides, can also be very helpful in the case of a cormobid diagnosis: A coexisting depression, bipolar disorder, or other significant mental health condition that requires treatment in its own right, separate from the drug addiction or alcohol dependency.

Individual psychotherapy sessions are beneficial in the following ways:

  • Improving or enlightening our patients through psycho-education and lectures about the nature of their addiction and other psychological disorders they may be having.
  • Developing assertiveness so that you can say no to drugs in difficult situations. Refining relationship skills so that you can avoid toxic friendships and repair broken relationships caused by addiction.
  • Improving communication skills so that you express the feelings that lead you to abuse substances.
  • Building your self-esteem so that substance dependency does replace your self-worth.
  • Cultivating stress management so you can better handle the stressors that lead to substance abuse.
  • Enhancing your overall quality of life free from drug abuse.

Group Psychotherapy Sessions

We carry out group sessions two times in a week focusing on interpersonal relationships. They allow each person to learn from each other, and to develop new interpersonal skills, not easily acquired when struggling with substance dependency or addiction. Group sessions are very vital in treatment because they do not only facilitate recovery during the treatment process but can also help the individual integrate back into society once they have left the Centre.

It is most beneficial in the following ways:

  • Groups often support and provide encouragement to one another outside the group setting.
  • Create an environment where substance abuse and other harmful behaviours can be effectively confronted by individual members.
  • Groups help to reduce the sense of isolation that most people who have substance abuse disorders experience and instills hope, a sense that “If they can make it, so can I.”
  • Groups provide feedback concerning the values and abilities of other group members.
  • Provide an environment where people who abuse substances can witness the recovery of others.
  • Encourage, coach, support, and reinforce as members undertake difficult or anxiety‐provoking tasks such as sharing their substance abuse experience.
  • Help addicted members learn to cope with their substance abuse and other problems by allowing them to see how others deal with similar problems.
  • Groups enable a single treatment professional to help a number of clients at the same time.
  • Groups offer members the opportunity to learn or relearn the social skills they need to cope with everyday life instead of resorting to substance abuse.
  • Provide useful information to clients who are new to substance abuse recovery.
  • Provides positive peer support and pressure to abstain from substance abuse.

Our sessions are aimed at:
