Addiction is not the end of the road! You can overcome any addiction. In addition to the addiction treatment programs offered at drug and alcohol rehab centres, there are also specific treatment programs for people who suffer from eating disorders and who suffer from a gambling addiction. Eating disorders are just as serious as drug and alcohol addictions as it can just as easily take a life. Gambling addictions are a little easier to deal with as lives are not necessarily at stake. However, all addictions are viewed in a serious light and dealt with accordingly.

This means that there are now a treatment centre in all major cities and even regional areas around South Africa. There is no excuse anymore not to go for treatment. The aim of all treatment centres is to provide assistance in the form of alcohol and drug treatment programs as well as detox and rehabilitation programs.
