The SHARP Treatment Centre is based on the Minnesota Model of treatment and uses the 12 Step programme of Alcoholics and Narcotics Anonymous as its foundation.

The emphasis is on the development of responsibility and self-awareness and clients are encouraged to begin to learn to live in the community in a manageable and constructive way.

The centre is staffed by professionals and counsellors, who themselves are in recovery from addiction. This creates an atmosphere of understanding and acceptance and provides clients with positive role models.
