The process is not easy, which is why our staff work round the clock to ensure that the environment within the centre is always supportive and conducive to self-reflection and self-motivated change.
Our comfortable residential addiction treatment centre in Fish Hoek, Cape Town accommodates 16 patients – men and women. The relatively low numbers ensure that residents get ample personal attention, while allowing them to build new relationships. This is important as many addicts have forgotten what it feels like to be part of a family. It all helps them to integrate successfully into society when they are ready to leave.
Again, this is where the intimate nature of our centre comes into play, as residents learn that while they are ultimately responsible for their actions, they can rely on the help and support of their peers and loved ones.
How The Model Works
FBTCC bases its rehab programmes on the internationally recognised Therapeutic Community Addiction Treatment Model. The model helps addicts realise the destructive nature of addiction and brings about a desire to make significant behavioural changes that address underlying problems and help maintain healthier lifestyles.
The model focuses on the whole person – emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually. In fact, spiritual growth is one of the most important elements of addiction treatment, as it encourages residents to look beyond their self-centred worlds and start considering how their actions impact others. As a result, residents gain a greater sense of responsibility for their problems and their ongoing battle against addiction.
FBTCC is registered with the provincial Department of Social Development
