Treatment Assessment & Admission

0861-ADDICT | Get Help on Getting the RIGHT Help!

The Foundation Clinic’s admission process begins with a personal assessment with one of the professional team.  The team’s experience and expertise assist them in making recommendations for the most suitable programme and treatment plan for each person on an individual basis.

We work closely with the family, support network and within any existing therapeutic and medical relationships that they may have, to ensure that there is a continuum of care for the patient.  Following the assessment the team will assist with preparing the patient for their stay in the clinic.  This includes assistance with medical aid authorisations.

We do encourage clients to contact their medical aids so that they understand the benefits that their plan includes.

Clients are admitted and seen by a medical doctor for medical detox.  The will receive individual therapy and coaching, as well as attending a number of educational sessions and group therapies.

Following admission clients are orientated onto their programme so that they can begin their recovery work at the clinic.

The Foundation Clinic caters for 24 inpatients because we believe that each individual has unique treatment and recovery needs and resources.

Clients can be admitted for inpatient treatment and there is also the choice of an outpatient programme and individual counselling, therapy and coaching.

The ethos of the Foundation Clinic is to develop a caring, honest relationship with each of our clients to best assist and support them through their treatment and ongoing recovery process.

The head of therapy is Judith Gordon-Drake, who is a clinical social worker with many years experience in addiction, gambling and family therapy.  The team includes recovery coaches, a trauma counsellor, nutrition & fitness coach, logo-jitsu teacher, movement teacher and a 12-step counsellor.

Clients are also introduced to the fellowship and attend 12-step meetings and support groups six nights a week during their stay at the clinic.
