OUR Journey TO Recovery

I can still vividly recall the words I typed into Google: "Help for drinking problem." Those simple keystrokes led to a profound turning point in our lives when my husband was admitted to rehab. The reality hit hard: "Your husband suffers from a chronic, relapsing disease of addiction."

As I walked alongside my husband on this journey through our family disease, doubts lingered within me. However, witnessing his unwavering commitment to working the 12-step recovery program brought a newfound clarity.


His sheer desperation to stay clean was palpable, and I witnessed his relentless effort like never before. It was during this time that the seeds of PRC Recovery were planted, opening me up to a new passion.

Our mission at PRC Recovery is to provide other families with the same opportunities and blessings we have experienced.


We aspire to create an environment that facilitates recovery, a platform that reunites families, all through a program that has enabled my husband to maintain sobriety since 2014.

We understand the transformative power of recovery, and we are driven to extend this lifeline to others.

PRC Recovery stands as a residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation centre, catering to both women and men in South Africa.
Our framework is meticulously designed to encompass a comprehensive range of approaches to substance abuse rehabilitation. We aim to unite various partial modalities into an integrated whole, maximizing the potential for successful recovery.


As individuals who have personally walked the path of integrated health services and a 12-step recovery program, my husband and I have united our purpose through PRC Recovery Centre. Our shared commitment revolves around helping others find their path to recovery. With a deep understanding of addiction and a profound dedication to supporting people, we strive to establish one of the finest rehab centres in South Africa.


Drawing from our own transformative experiences within an integrative approach and the 12-step program, we carefully crafted a rehabilitation program that reflects our journey. Our passionate team of professionals brings a wealth of skills and expertise.

At PRC Recovery, we merge the best practices to provide a holistic and effective rehabilitation experience. Our program is a testament to the profound impact that love, understanding, and dedication can have on the journey toward lasting recovery.

Our Facility


Nestled within a picturesque valley, our rehab facility spans a serene 5-hectare property, enveloped by the breathtaking Drakensberg mountain range and lush forests. Imbued with the beauty of nature, our surroundings play an integral role in our addiction treatment philosophy, fostering regular excursions to explore the enchanting waterfalls and captivating scenery.

Our facility caters to the needs of both women and men seeking drug and alcohol rehabilitation. The accommodation includes comfortable double rooms, ensuring privacy and comfort. Separate living spaces are thoughtfully provided for men and women.


On-site amenities further enhance our clients' experience, featuring a convenient laundry room, a games room for recreational activities, a well-equipped gym for physical wellness, and a cosy TV lounge with a fireplace for relaxation during evenings. 


The combination of our scenic location, comfortable facilities, and shared spaces cultivates an atmosphere of healing and camaraderie, reinforcing the transformative journey of recovery for all who enter our doors.

As an integral part of our approach, we incorporate yoga and meditation sessions to set a mindful tone before the commencement of our intensive daily addiction treatment program. These practices promote holistic well-being and provide a foundation for personal growth.


To support our client's nutritional needs, we offer an approved dietary program that includes three nourishing meals per day and two snack times. Our designated dining area provides a welcoming space for communal dining. We prioritize individual dietary requirements and ensure they are taken into careful consideration upon admission, striving to accommodate these needs to the best of our ability.


By combining integrated health services, evidence-based therapies, nutritional support, and comprehensive health care, we foster an environment where individuals can focus on their recovery journey with the confidence that their physical and mental well-being is supported every step of the way.

The Importance of choosing registered rehabilitation centres

The registration of rehab centres in South Africa is overseen by the Department of Social Development.


To ensure that your loved one receives the highest quality treatment for alcohol abuse and drug addiction, government rehabilitation centres adhere to the guidelines set forth in the Prevention of and Treatment for Substance Abuse Act (No. 70 of 2008). These guidelines encompass essential elements that are carefully evaluated when registering these facilities:

  • Suitable premises to provide a conducive environment for residents.

  • Qualified staff members who meet the necessary professional standards.

  • Defined standards for detoxification, assessments, and treatment procedures.

  • Documentation and evaluation of clinical disciplines and assessment criteria.

  • Implementation of a comprehensive nutritional program.

  • Time allocation regulations for resident duties, sessions, groups, and assignments.

Neglecting any of these norms and standards could have a significant impact. At PRC Recovery, we take great pride in incorporating all these crucial aspects into our program, establishing ourselves as a leading treatment facility in South Africa.
