Integrated Services for Substance Dependency

Badisa provides a comprehensive service regarding substance dependency, which includes prevention, early intervention, statutory and aftercare services. Our two treatment centres are:

Ramot; and
Toevlug.

Substance dependence is usually associated with interpersonal conflict, financial and domestic problems, work-related problems, obstruction of justice, as well as psychological and health problems. The physiological dependence is treated through detoxification and medical care forms part of the treatment. The treatment programme also includes other disciplines, such as psychotherapy, social services, dietary aid, occupational therapy, hand and art skills, pastoral care and social activities.

Social workers provide prevention programmes in the community and are responsible for the provision of aftercare services. Badisa also implements the ABBA network in various communities where all the relevant role players in the community are mobilised to prevent and treat alcohol and drug abuse.
