Journey Recovery Ballito provides confidential care for individuals, both men and women, facing challenges related to substance abuse disorder. We also cater to those dealing with dual diagnoses, including bipolar disorder, anxiety, depression, burnout, eating disorders, and various addictive behaviors or psychiatric issues.

At Journey we run a non-punitive program, healing with kindness and without judgment. Our clients struggle with guilt and shame and need support to change habits, destructive behaviours and beliefs that are no longer working for them.

The program provides meaningful tips and personalized strategies for coping with cravings or dealing with relapse thoughts that can be applied to everyday life.

Our treatment program includes supervised medical detox, individual and group therapy, trauma counselling, inner-child work, solution focused therapy, self-esteem workshops, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), yoga and mindfulness, and family and couple counselling.

  • CARE  – Comprehensive, specialized care that is devoid of punitive measures.
  • SPECIALISED TREATMENT – We provide expert care for various types of substance abuse, behavioral issues, depression, anxiety, and a range of other mental health disorders.
  • EMPATHY – Our methodology is firmly grounded in the values of affection, empathy, and regard.


At Journey, we acknowledge the intricate nature of addiction, which often intertwines with various underlying factors. This complexity underscores the fact that addictive disorders are not isolated occurrences. Instead, they can be influenced by a multiple of causes that differ from case to case. We firmly believe that unresolved pain and trauma play pivotal roles in this context.


Assisting Individuals Resistant To Self-Help

Witnessing a loved one spiral into self-destructive behaviour can be an incredibly distressing experience. It’s even more ehart wrenching when they steadfastly resist and reject the assistance you are offering, despite your ernest efforts. Opting to pursue legal avenues to ensure your loved one’s entry into treatment is an incredibly challenging decision to make.


The journey to recovery commences with detoxification, the initial step we undertake for our patients. Our patients undergo a comprehensive 72-hour detoxification, under the vigilant supervision of a doctor who specializes in addiction medicine. Recognizing the inherent challenges of detox, our dedicated staff wholeheartedly approach their responsibilities with love, compassion, patience, and utmost respect, ensuring our patients’ well-being during this critical phase.

For our corporate clients who cannot afford to be absent from work, we extend a tailored 7-day detox program. This encompasses the aforementioned detox phase, along with an additional four days of intensive therapeutic treatment. Following this, patients have the option to either continue their recovery journey at our facility or within the comfort of their own homes. In cases where patients choose to be at home, we encourage active participation in therapeutic groups during the afternoon sessions.


Taking the first steps

Our inpatient rehabilitation program is meticulously designed to break the chains of addiction by systematically dismantling detrimental, outdated belief systems and fostering self-love, self-acceptance, and self-esteem. At Journey, our approach to addiction treatment is distinctive and non-punitive. We firmly hold the conviction that nurturing and solidifying self-respect and self-esteem cannot coexist with punitive measures imposed on patients. Consequently, we prioritize creating an atmosphere of recovery that is built upon love, empathy, and understanding. This foundation is upheld through a setting characterized by relaxed and adaptable rules and boundaries.

Our inpatient program involves patients residing full-time within our lavish and comfortable facility, ensuring they receive continuous support and care.

This includes active engagement in daily therapeutic group sessions, expertly led by our qualified and experienced counselors. Additionally, patients benefit from weekly one-on-one counseling sessions. Throughout their stay, our patients have access to amenities such as Netflix, Showmax, DSTV, music-streaming services, a pool, and gym equipment that we provide, adding to their comfort and well-being.


In alignment with our commitment to compassionate and rational guidelines, our patients can anticipate supervised and managed access to their electronic devices, adhering to mutually agreed-upon boundaries set by the therapeutic team. Although some individuals might perceive inpatient treatment as the sole requirement for addressing addiction, at Journey, we firmly believe it constitutes just one phase within a broader continuum. Drawing from our experience, extended treatment durations yield more substantial results. Addressing decades of ingrained conditioning and unhealthy patterns in merely a month of treatment can prove to be an arduous task. Consequently, we advocate for a medium to long-term treatment strategy for all our patients.

Just as our patients evolve and transform throughout their recovery journey, their therapeutic approach should also evolve accordingly. Upon completing our intensive inpatient program, individuals transition to our Pembroke Halfway House, marking the next step in their path towards healing.


Studies indicate that engaging in physical activities in natural settings has both immediate and enduring positive effects on health. These activities enhance self-esteem and mood, leading to overall well-being.

In serene natural surroundings, clients rediscover their connection with their bodies, generating endorphins and tapping into strength and energy. Gaining a deeper understanding of the world, its inhabitants, and our significant role in the ecosystem sparks a sense of wonder about the surrounding environment for individuals.
