A rehab centre committed to fighting substance abuse
Defeating substance dependency
Rand Aid Association’s Wedge Gardens Treatment Centre, located in Johannesburg, is a rehab facility that offers a professional substance abuse treatment programme based on various psychological theories which were pioneered nationally and internally.
However, the centre also realises the value of the 12-step programme, running in conjunction with the professional programme. This has great value as it prepares beneficiaries not only on a short-term basis for reintegration back into the community, but also assists in the long-term.
Over the past 20 years, the profile of addiction has changed tremendously, resulting in people suffering from multi-addictions such as alcohol, drugs and over the counter medication, in addition to process addictions such as sex, gambling, debt, power and money, to name a few.
For this reason, Wedge Gardens offers rehab treatment only to males over the age of 18 years. The centre offers a detoxification service, short- and long-term in-patient services, a halfway house programme and aftercare services.
The centre also offers a more permanent option: Independent living for beneficiaries 50 years and older needing limited support within a structured environment.
Rand Aid has developed an holistic rehab programme based on multi-disciplinary interventions that focus on assessment, behaviour change, family and community integration, and recovery care to beneficiaries within the life cycle of addiction, from onset to the later years.
