We offer a free, community-sponsored service for finding trustworthy rehab centres located in or within reach of East London, South Africa.
Our South African based initiative helps local and international clients to find premium, cost-effective treatment solutions for alcohol, drugs and other chemical substance use disorders. We identify rehab centres with validated treatment programs, environments, mental health therapists, and access to accredited medical facilities, as well as the ability to meet a patient’s specific requirements.
Ideal treatment for substance use disorder involves a program using a combination of evidence-based therapeutic modules to deal with obvious and hidden disorders that invoke a patient’s urge for unhealthy mood manipulation. Evidence-based means there is reliable confirmation that a therapeutic module is safe and effective. Treatment should also prepare patients for re-entry into daily life, sustained sobriety, and a sense of wellbeing without improper medication.
East London is on the south-eastern coast of South Africa, facing the Indian Ocean, with a sub-tropical climate and exquisite beaches. It can be reached via a commercial airport, major roadways, bus services and a harbour. Finding a facility in or within reach of East London, with a rehab program consistent with your specific needs, is our speciality.
Substance use disorder is a mental illness with a range of progressively worsening harmful symptoms and consequences uniquely presented by different individuals. Typically it includes emotional distress, mental and physical decline, risky behaviour, career and relationship damage, and a long list of other problems. Personal commitment to change without psychological counselling usually fails.
Rehab centres offering flexible treatment programs for substance use disorders are available in and within reach of East London. Counselling at most South African rehab centres is consistent with first-world quality. One-on-one therapy (private sittings involving only a therapist and one patient) is common, but the number and duration of weekly sessions differ.
Successful detoxification and a determined attitude to stop using addictive substances are not sufficient for sustained abstinence. Most patients also need psychological counselling to address the underlying factors that originally initiated the problem and still influence it. This is the core benefit of counselling, but it also has many other advantages, all aimed at improving all-round wellbeing.
Most rehab centres provide outpatient and aftercare group meetings for addiction rehabilitation, supervised by qualified therapists. Groups do not facilitate people in the acute stages of a disorder, but render valuable support in the post-treatment phase and for patients with mild symptoms. If suitable rehab facilities are not available in East London, others can be found in similar coastal locations.
Outpatient programs allow patients to stay at home, or continue with responsibilities outside the treatment centre, but they are required to check in for treatment at appointed times for counseling, which may be full day programs or single, relatively short daily appointments. If East London outpatient centres do not suit a patient’s requirements, they may have to attend a residential facility in another area.
Public databases with comprehensive information about available rehab centres do not exist, making it difficult for people to find suitable facilities. You should contact us for free assistance.
