Committed to treating all addictions, we will ensure nobody gets left behind. From nicotine, alcohol, drugs, gambling (betting), and food, to pornography, we have the expertise and resources to kick-start your next chapter.
To us, it’s not enough to help you become disease and addiction-free. We want you to return to your day-to-day with a renewed approach, where the soaring quality of life and healthy relationships merge with the tools to handle whatever life throws your way. At our core, we want to shape productive members of society – happy, fulfilled, and accomplished.
Our treatments are as unique as our patients, weaving your goals, preferences, and quirks through your care plan. That said, most of our patients require a combination of talking therapy and medication and medical detoxes for those with substance abuse disorders.
We will never keep you in our care for longer than necessary. Examined on a case-by-case basis, we will monitor your progress, analyse how your thought patterns have evolved, and determine your risk level before identifying an appropriate length of stay. Length of stay generally varies from 30 to 60 days for a short to medium stay and 180 days for a long-term stay.
Absolutely! Whereas we believe there shouldn’t be a stigma surrounding mental illness and addiction, we are bound by our ethical obligations of confidentiality and wholeheartedly understand that some of our patients want their recovery to remain private. Therefore, we will only share with whomever you authorise us to share with.
We boast of experienced, fully trained professionals who reflect our core values, whether that’s nurses, social workers, clinicians, counsellors, psychiatrists, psychologists, or other specialists. As representatives of Safe Places, each team member must bring rich knowledge, serious attention to detail, and innate compassion for our patients.
Yes, and No. Healing is as individual as the sickness. Person A may heal completely, while Person B may not heal entirely but recover to a better health status than before. There are various contributing factors to one’s healing journey. They may range from differences in the particular longevity of disease, severity of illness, time of intervention, type of intervention, comorbid conditions, and environment, among others. It’s a personal journey that we are glad to walk with you.
