About the Foundation Clinic

The Foundation Clinic was founded in 2001 and since its beginnings has been committed to the recovery and wellness of our clients. The treatment practices and modalities at the clinic have changed over the years, but the clinic's ethos of unconditional positive regard for our clients and their families, has not changed. 

The team is passionate about individualised treatment plans that are aligned with our clients' needs, wants, goals, values and resources. Each client is supported in developing their personal and professional recovery capital to develop an authentic, meaningful recovery through a combination of individual and group processes.

Our Treatment Approach

The programmes combine cognitive behavioural theory, systemic coaching and a humanistic approach to treatment. The programme is residential, starting with an initial 21 days. Clients receive support through individual therapy and coaching, group education and process sessions. By working with the client and their support systems, we are committed to creating systemic change and growth, resulting in an internally-motivated recovery. Behavioural change is the foundation of a meaningful, sustainable recovery and we are focused on providing our clients with the tools and practices that are part of a lifestyle management and personal transformation process.

Recovery Philosophy

Recovery is a change and transformation process that supports us in overcoming the dysfunctional behaviour patterns associated with the use of addictive substances. Each person has a unique set of circumstances and experiences that need to be addressed to create a sustainable approach to recovery and wellness. We believe in a long-term continuum of care, and this is the rationale behind making the aftercare programme available for 11 months following treatment, at no additional cost. Our team is committed to supporting and empowering clients in their recovery before, during and after treatment.

Commitment to Clients

We are committed to each client's personal recovery process, and creating a treatment plan that is best suited to the individual's situation. The values of professionalism, compassion and authentic care are central to working with every person who is admitted to the clinic. From admission through discharge, and in the aftercare process, we are here to support you every step of the way. Many of our team have lived recovery experience and has the expertise, tools and wisdom to help you reach your recovery goals. We also believe that family involvement in the treatment process is essential to create systemic recovery and wellness.
