Dr Naidoo is the founder of A.R.C.A. in South Africa. He is the Medical Director for A.R.C.A. Durban and Johannesburg. Dr Naidoo has accumulated vast clinical knowledge and expertise in the field of substance abuse, as well as family medicine, diabetes management systems and occupational health.

He established A.R.C.A. Durban in 2007 at Westridge Medical Centre. As a forerunner of Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) in South Africa, Dr Naidoo piloted a unique approach to substance abuse treatment through medical detoxification and the use of Naltrexone. Whilst A.R.C.A has seen many changes since then, including A.R.C.A. Durban’s relocation to Glenwood and the establishment of A.R.C.A Johannesburg, the organisation has flourished to serve individuals, families and communities across the country.

His responsibilities include:

  • Serving as the head of all medical personnel within A.R.C.A.
  • Designing and establishing protocols for safe, effective and manageable medical detoxification.
  • Actively engaging in substance abuse education within the medical and general communities.
