If you or a loved one needs alcoholism or drug addiction treatment, there are three crucial factors to consider:
- The quality of treatment at the rehab centre
- The length of treatment
- How soon you or your loved one can be admitted to the treatment centre
Studies have shown that people addicted to drugs or alcohol need quality treatment, as soon as possible and for a certain length of time to give them the best chance of recovery from addiction.
Our rehab centres in Johannesburg are among the best addiction treatment programs in South Africa and attract patients from all over the world. Below are some examples of our Johannesburg rehabilitation centres.
