The following principles guide our treatment approach. Every participant, regardless of their circumstances, degree, or type of addiction and/or extent of his emotional disturbance, is a person of worth and value. Treatment is voluntary. We cannot force people to learn or grow- it is their choice. Change comes because of action. It is important that residents actively participate in the programme. The movement toward recovery is possible for anyone at any time with no greater pre-requisite than a sincere desire to change.
Family and couples counselling is available if requested by the client.
