The Foundation Clinic is a treatment centre that specialises in addiction treatment and recovery. With the growing demand for programmes that focus on sustainable recovery and long-term wellness, we have identified the need for a programme that differs slightly from traditional outpatient programmes. The focus of the Recovery Wellness Programme is self-empowerment through forward-focused, solutions-driven group coaching. The group also forms the basis of all our treatment programmes post-treatment aftercare.
The Recovery Wellness Coaching Programme 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 recovery programme. The coaching programme also takes into account that certain clients are looking for a programme that can help them address their substance misuse, abuse and dependence issues and the challenges it presents, while undertaking a harm reduction programme and moving towards abstinence.
The group is facilitated by professional, accredited recovery coaches whom are trained in the specialty of substance misuse and addictive behaviour disorders, whose role is to assist and aid the processes that take place throughout the coaching conversation. Unlike counselling and therapy, coaching aims to guide the journey which is determined by the clients. Clients are encouraged and supported to determine their own unique path of recovery, and by so doing learn to take responsibility and be fully accountable for their progress. Advice is kept to a minimum and confidentiality is maintained unless absolutely necessary to support the client’s recovery.
