Claro Addiction Treatment Clinic Cape Town Claro Addiction Treatment Centre is a specialised addiction treatment facility at N1 City, Cape Town. It operates from the same building as Claro Clinic which is a mental health treatment facility. This facilitates the treatment of dual diagnoses.

The philosophy of the Minnesota Model is based on the 12 step program of Alcoholics Anonymous. The treatment provides tools and a context for the patient to learn new ways of living without alcohol and other drugs. This type of treatment can […]
