Alcohol Rehab Centers - Drug Rehabs - Rehabilitation Programs

How much does it cost?

Prices vary depending on the facility and the duration of stay. Your private health insurance will often cover up to 24 days of addiction treatment, as well as 21 days of mental health inpatient care, per year.

We work with most private health insurance and medical aid schemes. We will coordinate your admission and, where possible, arrange pre-authorisation. If you were to opt for a luxury rehab, you would need to complement the cost covered by your health insurance, which we can help coordinate .

If not on private health insurance we can help you find treatment you can afford.

What we do

We Do Recover provides Screening* and Intake Coordination** services for people struggling with addiction or mental health issues. We also have specialist behavioural addiction treatment centres.

We provide professional support and offer online resources on addiction, psychiatric issues, treatment, and recovery

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 until admission when the clinical team can take over, providing a comprehensive treatment plan, including a Family Programme.

*Screening: is the process whereby patients are determined eligible and appropriate for a specific treatment environment. We consider mental, physical and social circumstances. We aim for early identification of possible comorbidity.

**Intake Coordination: We liaise with the family and the clinic to ensure a seamless transition to treatment, assisting with administration and further assessment of the patient.

Please Note: Clinics pay us for our Screening & Intake Coordination work.


The treatment facilities

We only partner with private facilities that meet world class standards of quality, are fully licensed and employ certified staff. Our network exceeds 100 facilities across South Africa, the UK & Thailand and provides end to end treatment.

Do I have an addiction problem?

When does our drinking, using or obsessive behaviour cross the line?

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.

Take the test

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.
