General Information Regarding In-patient Treatment

Assessment: In order to match the treatment program with the patient’s needs, all drug patients are assessed before admission to ensure that Elim Clinic’s treatment program is suitable to their specific needs. Assessment of other patients is arranged where required.

Visitors: Significant people in the life of the addict are encouraged to visit and provide support. Due to the nature of the withdrawal and detoxification process visitors are allowed to visit from the 8th day of treatment. A visitors list is completed. Only 5 visitors are allowed per patient.

No visiting on Wednesdays.
Public Holidays – as arranged, information will be communicated well in advance.

Involvement of spouse or significant others: Addiction not only affects the addict, but also those around him/her. For the recovery process to be effective it is required that the significant others also engage into a process of healing. Elim Clinic therefore provides the opportunity for the spouse, partner, parents or significant others to be involved in treatment. This is structured according to the needs of the significant others and arranged with the patients’ therapist.

Aftercare: Addiction is considered a relapse prone disease. Recovery is a process. It happens in stages over time. Long term recovery requires continuous management of the recovery process for the person in recovery to stay focused, and motivated to work on life style changes, healthy habits, effective problem solving and development of life skills. Elim Clinic offers an aftercare service to patients and significant others in the form of group meetings. The group sessions take place weekly on Wednesday evenings from 18:15 to 19:30 at Elim Clinic. The group sessions are facilitated by professional therapists.

Treatment Fees: You are welcome to contact us for more information with regard to the treatment fees.
