Ongoing case management

We Do Recover refers to the same world class facilities that many European and British agencies and intervention specialists are sending to. We do an assessment of your treatment needs through e-Therapy with a trained professional. You may well wonder why our prices are lower than certain other referral agencies or counsellors. We send patients to the exact same clinics, our assessments are performed by fully qualified professionals, so why are our costs lower? It’s because our case management fee is lower.

Continuum of Treatment

Treatment is provided on a graded scale that caters for your needs as you grow in recovery. We are able to refer you to top clinics that cater for each phase of treatment. At each level of treatment there are several options so we can tailor the pricing of each phase of treatment to match your pocketbook and your particular needs. Because of the lower price of drug and alcohol rehab in South Africa you will be able to afford to stay longer. Many of our UK visitors spend up to 6 months in South Africa.
