Programme Approach

With the growing demand for programmes that focus on sustainable recovery and long-term wellness, we have identified the need for an aproach that differs slightly from traditional outpatient programmes.  The focus of the RWP is self-empowerment through forward-focused, solutions-driven group coaching.  The group also forms the basis of all our treatment programmes’ post-treatment and aftercare.

The RWP creates a safe space for clients to move forward in their recovery by focusing on rebuilding #RecoveryCapital in the physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual areas of life.  The 21-day programme takes place in the evenings to cater to the needs of clients who are not able to commit to a full-time residential inpatient programme.

The coaching model also takes into account that certain clients are looking for an approach that can help them address their substance use issues and the challenges it presents.  The RWP gives individuals the opportunity to develop skills that allow them to grow personally and professionally.

The group is facilitated by professional, accredited recovery coaches who are trained in the specialty of substance use and addictive behaviour disorders. Unlike counselling and therapy, coaching aims to guide the journey which is determined by the clients.  Clients are encouraged and supported to develop their own unique path of recovery, and by so doing learn to take responsibility and be fully accountable for their progress.

Topics that are covered during the coaching process include, but are not limited to

  • Developing a personal recovery (and relapse prevention) plan;
  • Rebuilding recovery capital which is the breadth and depth of internal and external resources;
  • Understanding personal & professional relationships in recovery;
  • Undertaking long- & short-term goal setting;
  • Determining & incorporating personal beliefs and values into daily life;
  • Examining the connection between spiritual beliefs and values, the body, brain and mind;
  • Exploring healthy lifestyle choices;
  • Identifying & avoiding triggers and urges, and developing effective coping strategies.
