Substance abuse rehab is for those who require inpatient treatment or outpatient treatment for drug and alcohol addiction. ARCA is a substance abuse rehab that is holistic in its approach when it comes to an addicted patient. The journey to sobriety is not an easy one and it will take a long term commitment and hard work for many in recovery from substance abuse. We offer professional addiction treatment in a safe and healing setting in Durban and Johannesburg.

Intake Process

The intake process involves meeting with a professional therapist, where the various treatment options will be discussed. Our goal is to fit the patient into the best treatment plan that will benefit both the patient and their budget or their families. We will assess what treatment the patient requires based on the following:

  • Medical functioning
  • Emotional functioning
  • Social functioning

We may carry out extensive assessments, such as:

  • Medical examination
  • Psychological assessment
  • Psychosocial assessment
  • Drug use history
  • Family history of addiction
  • Financial arrangements for treatment

Dual Diagnosis and medical issues

If you have medical issues and dual diagnosis, we will discuss the best treatment options so that the patient gets the correct level of care. Patients who already have a mental illness and addiction issues require specialized treatment. Recovery isn’t always a one size fits all experience and often these patients fall through the cracks if they are not given the correct treatment.

If the patient is aware they have a mental illness, we will suggest the best treatment options so that the patient receives the support and care necessary for their recovery.

Detox Treatment

Detox treatment is a method of treatment using medication to alleviate substance withdrawals. When you arrive at rehab, we will assess the patient and determine if medical detox will be beneficial. Medical detox is vital for those who are likely to experience withdrawal risks or complicated withdrawal after quitting their drug of choice.
