Detoxification- Let Twin Rivers Assist you Today
The detoxification process is extremely important and must be carried out professionally. Attempts to detox at home without proper assistance can be fatal. It is generally unknown that acute ‘alcohol’ detoxification must be carried out in a hospital and that suddenly stopping drinking is extremely dangerous causing seizures that can permanently damage or even kill the alcoholic! Benzodiazepine withdrawal can be painful and potentially fatal too if not professionally managed. Veteran heroin users are now detoxed with subutex or suboxone. Twin Rivers does not endorse the use of these drugs for ongoing recovery maintenance use, detoxification only.
Twin Rivers involves family in the clients process as much as is realistically possible;
*Family Conferences; this is a meeting which is engineered in helping to start repairing damaged family dynamics such as ‘communication’. Family members will also be educated about the clients recovery process.
*Questionnaires; with the clients permission we send family members questionnaires giving you an opportunity to share your experiences and concerns.
*Telephone Contact; All clients have access to their phones twice a week and can also ‘skype’ or ‘facetime’ with friends and family. The clients allocated focal counsellor will keep you informed of the clients recovery process but no information shared by the client will be disclosed to anyone who is not a member of Twin Rivers Clinical Team.
Twin Rivers Rehab Programmes
Twin Rivers provides clients with a safe, secure environment that is far removed from consuming city mentality and negative influences such as ‘using’ friends or a problematic relationship . It is within this environment that treatment is provided by a team of Internationally qualified and passionate individuals who address severe problems such as substance abuse, alcohol dependency, dual diagnosis, trauma and a host of psychiatric conditions such as depression or anxiety.
All the recovery programmes are underpinned by the world renowned 12 step recovery programme.
Twin Rivers Community Approach
Focus is on the individuals needs within a community setting. A combination of treatments is offered including medical care, psychological processes such as art therapy, drumming therapy, drama workshops, individual and group therapy, lectures and visits to the local gymnasium; each day starting with a morning walk to the beach. Twin Rivers acknowledges that all clients are individuals and so our programmes are customised to afford personalised treatment plans. Even though all our clients have the common bond of addiction, it is clear that each addicts ‘needs’ do vary going forward.
Twin Rivers Rehab provides residential primary care, extended primary and secondary care, counselling, interventions and aftercare. All clients, South African or International, have an individual ‘after-care plan’ formulated well in advance of returning home.
