Treatment plans are also offered for mental illness, personality disorders, eating disorders, self-harm, and burnout.
This safe haven takes a completely holistic approach to wellness with its commitment to bringing the joy of life back to clients. Clients get to experience revitalizing, exciting, and soulful nature-based adventures in the beauty of the surrounding environment, with weekly excursions to the Magaliesburg Mountains, Hartbeespoort Dam, and Big Five Safaris in the neighbouring Pilanesburg Nature Reserve that include game drives, quad biking, rock jumping, and hikes.
A range of other healing modalities, such as martial arts, yoga, and meditation, are also part of the in-house offerings. Healing the body with healthy, kosher and halal food is prioritised at Freeman House Rehabilitation Centre, where recovery is fuelled by a focus on varied, delicious, and nutritious meals. The in-house gym, pool, rolling lawns, and sauna are some of the added advantages because although recovery is hard work, there is no reason why it shouldn’t also be joyful, healing, and nurturing.
Within your individualized primary care inpatient treatment experience, you will experience a meticulously scheduled addiction recovery program designed to take you through a journey of self-discovery, growth, and healing.

Outings are designed to build group cohesion, nurture mindfulness and tranquillity, and allow you to become attuned and deeply conscious of life’s most exquisite gifts and experiences.
Alcohol abuse can ruin a person’s life, and yet many people continue to misuse it in order to avoid detox withdrawal as well as the emotional pain that they have been self-medicating. Depending on the severity of your dependence, if done at home without medical supervision, alcohol withdrawal can actually be deadly and certainly causes dopamine and GABA deficiencies that it may have caused or masked. These are critical neurotransmitters required for pleasure, attention, motor coordination, cognition, and mood. Our carefully managed alcohol addiction treatment program will give you the sober living skills you need for ongoing recovery. Abusing alcohol over and over again can cause dementia or Alzheimer’s to show up early, as well as other serious diseases.
Our credentialed specialists offer a personalised drug addiction treatment programme, with medical detox and intensive holistic treatment to address addiction to illicit drugs such as methamphetamines, opiates, marijuana, crack/cocaine and hallucinogens. Because of their illegal nature, addiction to these substances often coincides with traumatic experiences. We understand this and we are equipped to help. The first step of our treatment programme is always medical detox, which is closely monitored by our team of specialists. This is followed by an intensive, holistic treatment program that addresses not only the addiction but also any underlying mental health conditions. Our aim is to help you or your loved one build a foundation for long-term recovery.
Opioid addiction is by far the most common among addictions to pharmaceuticals, and opioid overdoses claim the lives of tens of thousands each year. Benzos, sleeping pills, and stimulants are also highly addictive prescription drugs liable to cause abuse. If done without medical supervision, withdrawal from some of these substances can also be deadly. What remains in common with this class of addiction is often its ‘innocent’ beginnings, with a legitimate prescription in a doctor’s office.
When people think of addiction, they often think of illegal drugs. But addiction can happen with legal drugs too, like prescription medications. Prescription medication addiction is when you can’t control how much or how often you use your prescription. You might start using it more than prescribed or for reasons other than what it was prescribed for. You could use it to feel good, relieve stress, or get high, for example.
Increasingly common because of its ubiquitous availability and physiological effect on the brain, porn addiction needs a targeted and holistic response as well as an exploration of its underlying causes. It may or may not fall under sex addiction, which involves the need to perform sexual acts to achieve a “fix,” similar to the fix craved by someone with an alcohol or opiate use disorder. Sex addiction may result in unsafe behaviours, remorse, guilt, or negative personal or professional consequences.
Most people enjoy watching porn or indulging in sexual activities from time to time. However, some people develop an unhealthy obsession with sex or porn, which can ruin their lives. This condition is known as sex or porn addiction, and it is a serious problem that requires professional treatment.
Sex and porn addicts often become consumed by their need for sexual gratification, to the point where they neglect their work, family, and other important obligations. In severe cases, addicts may even resort to illegal activities, such as prostitution or voyeurism, to fulfil their desires. If you think you or someone you know may be suffering from sex or porn addiction, it is important to seek help from a qualified addiction specialist. With the right care, you can get over this disorder and live a healthy, useful life.
