This is Dr. David
twin rivers is a very good facility.
what makes it good?
extensive programs there.
what addiction problems are you looking to treat?
drug addiction - benzos, opiates
yes, they offer programs in detoxification and drug addiction and dependence
they are located in Plettenberg Bay
is that far from you?
effectiveness rating? likelihood of success? any better than any other clinics? most offer detox etc - want to find the best
these programs have confidencial patient information and don't publish their effectiveness rating.
best to contact the programs directly and ask them and interview several programs if you want to choose.
it is just like buying a car or buying a house.
don't feel embarrassed to ask these questions up front
this is their contact information

does this help?
Hi there, sorry - really - but it doesn't help. I know there are facilities in South Africa and I know several follow the 12 step treatment approach - what I need to know is the outcomes they obtain . I ask you this question because you may have knowledge from experiences with patients - which I of course would not have. Info about the clinics themselves can be obtained by anyone quite easily from the WWW.
I do not have any patients who have been to addiction facilities in south africa.
you have to contact the facilities themselves to get their success rates.
they are not forced to publish these rates.
often times the more expensive facilities will have higher success rates because they take in clients who have more money and more resources themselves and these tend to be programs who do better
because they take in more affluent clients.
Thanks for your comments - sadly it adds nothing to my knowledge as you have no experience of sending patients there .
let me know if you have other questions.
thanks for using JustAnswer.com
best of luck to you.
