Centre Description

Addiction Specialists

Registered Rehabilitation Facility

SCRC is a registered South African rehabilitation facility, specialising in the treatment of substance dependence, behavioural addictions, eating disorders and co-occurring disorders.  It is our firm belief that real, sustainable freedom from the darkness of active addiction is achievable for all individuals and families bound by this devastating condition. Established in 2001, we are able to offer specialist addiction treatment with our body of counselling, clinical and medical professionals, who together, boast 328 years of collective years experience in addiction treatment.

Holistic and Client-Centred Treatment Approach

Our treatment approach is underpinned by the conception of addiction as a complex, multi-faceted disorder – a physical, psychological and spiritual malady. During treatment, we uncover and address all the factors contributing to this disabling condition. We are committed to achieving a lasting and sustainable internal shift in each of our clients, restoring them to their rightful place as positive participants in their own lives, families and communities. 

Multi-Disciplinary Team of Professionals

A wide range of treatment services are provided by our highly skilled and experienced team. Our therapeutic team is comprised of a Addiction Counsellors, Social Workers, a Counselling Psychologist, Registered Nurses, a Fitness Instructor and Pastor, as well as a sessional Psychiatrist and General Practitioner. This multi-disciplinary team allows our clients access to a variety of support structures, thereby maximising the potential for successful rehabilitation.

Our Vision

Our vision is to provide unparalleled service before self, through the dedication of staff and daily implementation of Step 12. Our vision is to achieve industry-leading recovery rates and to remain a flagship of excellence in training, equipping and empowering those affected by addiction, through the development of world-class facilities and innovative, effective rehabilitation programmes.


Detoxification services are facilitated on a needs basis. Please talk to our Admissions Team to make appropriate arrangements. Those individuals who are completing an extended detoxification process, or who are suffering from extended withdrawal symptoms, will meet the criteria for Long-Term Treatment only.



SCRC offers comprehensive, individualised rehabilitation programmes of varying lengths, to accommodate a variety of personal circumstances. Recommendations regarding treatment duration are made by our therapeutic team on a case to case basis.


Length of treatment is dependent on various factors, including (but not limited to) the following: affordability, work commitments, children, depth of addiction, period of use, multiple previous treatment attempts, poly-substance abuse, required crisis intervention, personality disorders, pervasive clinical syndromes, sexual abuse, eating disorders, sexual addiction, trauma, self-harm, attitude, level of commitment and work rate.

Secondary Care - Halfway House

Halfway House (HWH) is a stand-alone facility, accommodating residents who have completed initial treatment but wish to prolong their stay in a therapeutic setting. The objective of our HWH is to provide a safe and controlled living environment, whilst residents re-integrate into society. HWH also reduces the stress and responsibility placed on our residents’ families, during this critical phase of recovery. Under the guidance of our staff and an on-site HWH manager, residents at HWH can learn to take more personal responsibility for themselves and focus on forward progress in all areas of their lives. Whilst at HWH, residents may pursue their studies, volunteer at SCRC or secure external employment, whilst still benefiting from the structure of a recovery-orientated facility. The minimum stay in HWH is 2 months.

Outreach Projects

SCRC runs various Outreach projects in which our residents can impact other people’s lives in a positive way. Not only does this benefit others, it also helps our residents to develop attitudes of humility and gratitude, both of which are an inseparable part of a successful recovery process.

On a regular basis, we facilitate visits to local crèches, schools, orphanages, churches and informal settlements to be of service in many ways. SCRC also reaches out to impoverished communities in remote areas as often as we can. So far, we have accomplished successful Outreach Missions to Lesotho, Mozambique, Zululand, Matatiele and the Transkei.

‘Knit Your Heart Out’ is an ongoing Outreach project in which residents are taught knitting and crocheting skills. They are also equipped with the materials to be able to personally create blankets, clothing and toys for those less fortunate than themselves. These items are then given to people that need them, as part of our other Outreach initiatives.
