The Private Centre

The Cape Town Centre bridges the gap between super luxury executive care and good value for money treatment. Wether in the exec suites or our standard suites we do not compromise on our therapeutic care model remains the same.

Learn About Alcohol Use Disorders

What is Alcohol Addiction?

Alcohol addiction (use disorder) is characterised by an obsessive, need to drink alcohol, loss of control over your drinking habits and development of a strong physical and psychological dependence on alcohol.


Because people that have been living with an alcohol use disorder need care to recover, not victimisation, ostracization and humiliation.

Alcohol Treatment Centre

Looking at the options available for alcohol addiction treatment in South Africa we had little choice but to start this programme. Instead of commiting people into spiritual recovery we try to understand what went wrong for them and how we can start a journey forward.
