MEDICAL AID PAYs for rehab.
Your hospital plan or medical aid should cover between 21 and 24 days of inpatient addiction treatment per year. We work with most medical aid schemes. We will coordinate your admission and, where possible, arrange pre-authorisation for you.
Addiction is a complicated disease that has been proven to affect the brain’s memory, learning and reward centres. Moving from active addiction into an active recovery is a massive change. Treatment requires focused attention in an appropriate environment, delivered by qualified professionals, for an appropriate amount of time. Success rates are linked to adequate treatment lengths. There is no short-term solution to a debilitating addiction.
A high proportion of alcoholics and addicts also suffer from mental health issues. Our preferred Johannesburg rehab offers dual diagnosis treatment, and should you need a stabilising stay at a psychiatric clinic, your medical aid or hospital plan should cover up to 21 days there too.
Yes, it’s never a convenient time to push the “pause” button on your life and go to rehab. Being away from work and family isn’t easy. If you need extended care it’ll need to be privately funded… Yes, there are costs associated with getting treatment. But, consider this:

Our UK, Thailand and South Africa clinics are fully licensed and employ certified staff. Our professional staff includes psychiatrists, GP’s, psychologists, addiction counsellors, social workers and nurses. We provide end to end treatment.
We’ve successfully completed more than 160 interventions since 1998 in Africa, North America, the UK & Asia. In extreme cases, we can help to obtain and exercise a court order to leverage the patient into long-term treatment. Outcomes for severe dependencies are better with treatment lengths of around 90 days.
We believe that addiction, criminality, and violence are deeply intertwined and that the quality and effectiveness of our services contribute to a safer world for all of us.
We are focussed on the private sector. Most of our patients are members of a South African medical aid scheme or have international private health insurance, both of which cover treatment costs. Other patients pay privately for rehab.
One of our primary functions is to educate and support families’ that have an addicted or mentally ill loved one. This support is continuous from your enquiry through to admission, family programme and post-discharge aftercare support. This provides a comprehensive treatment plan and outcomes are better when the family is involved in treatment.
Sure signs of an addiction problem include either a sense of guilt about using, irritability towards people or situations that question our using, inability to cut down, or a sense of needing to use to function.
If you experience any of these, consider how much more you stand to lose before you get treatment.
DOES MY LOVED ONE HAVE AN ADDICTION PROBLEM?
Are my concerns legitimate? Is it time to step in?
Signs of addiction may include erratic or irresponsible behaviour, tendency to isolate or maintain unhealthy associations with people, poor eating and sleeping habits and dishonesty.
You can help.
The key is to help the person suffering from addiction to come to the realisation that they have a problem. For their loved ones, it often means to “stop enabling” their behaviour, otherwise known as letting them face the consequences of their illness.
When the case is too severe and stopping enabling doesn’t break through the denial, staging an intervention or in extreme cases organising a court order may be necessary.
We can help you evaluate the situation.
