Our Treatment Method


ARC believes in the power of healing that the 12-step programme has to offer individuals suffering from addiction and other related conditions. The 12-step programme has, over the years, accomplished miracles in healing and recovery for addicts around the world. Where more traditional medical and psychiatric methods of treating addiction have failed, the 12-step programme has proved a lifeline for those who ordinarily would never find recovery. At ARC our clients have the opportunity to benefit from a 12-step based recovery, in a holistic way. Through a combination of group counselling, one-on-one counselling, psychoeducation, specialised therapeutic interventions and alternative therapies, clients learn trust, gain personal strength and acquire the tools to successfully manage their addiction.

In addition to the traditional elements of treatment, ARC incorporates a wide range of proven specialised therapeutic interventions and alternative therapies into its treatment including:

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
  • Art Therapy
  • Body Work
  • Exercise and Fitness
  • Acupuncture
  • Massage
  • AA/NA Meetings
  • Relapse Prevention
  • Family Therapy

In our treatment we address the medical aspects of addiction with professional and thorough detoxification. Under 24-hour supervision of experienced detox professionals, clients cleanse their systems of the toxins that have accumulated in their body through prolonged substance abuse in order to begin treatment with renewed energy. Our trained experts make every effort to maintain clients’ comfort and mitigate the severity of withdrawal symptoms during the detox process. In support of the medical aspects of detoxification, we offer clients alternative therapies such as Qigong, acupuncture, therapeutic massage and relaxation focussed activities.

After an intensive evaluation process, our multidisciplinary team of skilled and experienced professionals work collaboratively to produce the best treatment plan, with clearly defined treatment and recovery goals. The duration of our residential programme is minimum 8 weeks; however it varies as each client presents unique issues which require varying intensity and scope of treatment. We discuss the programme that best fits the client’s needs and accordingly customise their treatment plan. Pricing is tailored to the length and type of treatment recommended. Shortly after our pre-admission assessment, we will provide you with an estimate of the financial commitment that will be required.
