Rehabilitation centres – what do they do ?

19 November, 2021Articles, News

There are a number of rehabilitation centres in Johannesburg, each with their own model of how to treat addiction. At Crossroads Recovery Centres, we take a number of approaches to treatment, including group therapy, individual counselling, peer support programmes and goal-setting groups. However, what sets Crossroads Recovery Centre apart as one of the best rehabilitation centres in Johannesburg, is the application of the 12 steps as the foundation of recovery.

During the treatment process, clients will be introduced to the 12-step programme that coincides with their particular addiction. These 12-step fellowships host a number of meetings throughout the city, some of which include meetings for drug addicts, meetings for alcoholics, meetings for co-dependents and meetings for sex and love addicts. The 12 steps is a tried and tested method of recovery that subscribes to the disease model of addiction. An introduction to the 12 steps is one of the critical tools needed to live a life free from addiction. Why? Because it helps the addict or alcoholic to build an invaluable support network before they leave treatment. This support network for many, is indispensable.

Group therapy takes many different forms, For example, at Crossroads Recovery Centres, therapists host a number of different groups that focus on different issues. Process groups for example, are facilitated by an addictions counsellor. They are spaces within which addicts can become vulnerable and share their story with peers who relate completely to what they are going through. There are also spiritual groups, where counsellors address a number of issues related to spirituality. It is important to note that as one of the leading rehabilitation centres in Johannesburg, Crossroads Recovery Centre is not affiliated with any one religious or spiritual group. Like 12-step fellowships, which are spaces that are open to anyone from any religious or non-religious group, Crossroads Recovery Centres are not prescriptive about what clients should believe. Instead, the centre offers guidance and encouragement, helping addicts to connect with themselves, the world around them and their beliefs- drawing strength from those beliefs in learning how to live free from the clutches of addiction.

If you or a loved one needs assistance with addiction – know that help is readily available. The road to recovery is not always an easy one but getting yourself or your loved one the best possible care from the team at Crossroads Recovery Centre, provides you with a map to sober, healthy living. No matter how bad things seem, there is hope and it’s only a phone call away. If you or anyone close to you needs help with an addiction to sex, gambling, substances, alcohol or food, please contact us for a free assessment.

Start a new life free from drugs, alcohol and process addictions.

  • On the last day of my stint at Crossroads I could only express gratitude towards all who works there. A wise councillor once commented on my question when one is ready for rehab by explaining that when one is ready for rehab, rehab is ready for you.
