About Us

About our Addiction Treatment Center Program

Make no mistake, the professional experience of our team is our strength and impact! All our work is word of mouth. Mark L Lockwood BA(hons)(psy) and his team of registered and experienced therapists work in a super modern, person-centered manner, that is one of a kind. Most people have tried many other avenues by the time they reach us. When they do, we make profound personal transformations happen, together with the client, who is valued and treated as an individual looking for a higher quality life and freedom from mental and emotional suffering. If this is you, or your loved one, get involved today and learn more about Center for Healing and Life Transformation and our Pathways Addiction Treatment Programs. 


With over thirty years of combined experience in treating all types of addiction and dual diagnosis cases, we are proudly confident that we have some of the most experienced people on our team.  Our team of 10 consultant doctors, psychiatrists and psychologists we have worked with for over a decade know how uniquely we work and they too, provide the client with the very best in modern treatments available. When a client works with this team, amazing things begin to happen. End of story! Healing occurs on many levels and there are no words to explain it. There is a connection that runs right through our daily work, from top down that is simply wonderful to be a part of. 
Pathways Addiction Treatment Center Program caters for healing at our luxury center as well as online, and even have multiple aftercare options and courses. A ultra-modern and non-clinical, non-rehab styled take on in-patient primary, secondary and tertiary care is offered as well as online counselling to all drug and alcohol abuse clients, depressive and anxiety disorders, dual diagnosis and eating disorders. We are also determined serial relapse specialists who believe in the most modern international approach to addiction treatment, coupled with ancient wisdom. In other words we are all inclusive and non-ritualistic or dualistic in our approaches. One of the first things people learn about our drug rehab centre. We are open, inclusive and progressive rather than closed, exclusive and stagnant. That’s the thing about our super unique Addiction Treatment Center Program that makes it as special as it is. 

More about our drug rehab centre

Pathways has a superb, clean and serene facility, situated amongst a dozen white, sandy beaches. The Cape have beaches like no other. Large private rooms that are mostly en suite offer privacy and the space necessary for healing to occur. Comfort and a homely experience dominates luxury, making it a standard home away from home experience. Ours is a mature program for those who are ready and want to get well!

Besides the surrounding oceans, forests and mountains we have a large pool, a bunch of big screen HDTV’s with premium satellite TV bouquets, Fiber Wifi etc. This ensures we have all the modern comforts of home to assist our clients in a homely and luxurious setting. Our fully equipped gym with half Olympic pool, shops, coffee shops, meetings and the beach are all well within walking distance. We’re on the beach! This allows us to make the most of the area, which is a home away from home for our clients. Tons of personal space, on many levels, creates the ultimate work space for our clients healing, recovery and life transformation. 

Pathways specializes not only in personalized non-clinical primary care but also in very well developed, modern DSM-5 Addiction Treatment programmes for serial relapse, and co-morbidity clients (addiction and depression etc.) who are ready to re-integrate their lives back into society. Again, due to small numbers, it is all personalized to the clients needs. This is not available at a clinical or standard registered styled drug rehab centre, which we definitely are not. With us you will find a modern, intensive and highly impactful therapeutic program that provides lasting and radical change. 

We don’t believe throwing you into a setting where you have to fit in to general lectures and only have 12 step lectures all day. In fact, that is about ten percent of our program. Connecting the four pillars of emotional, physical, psychological and your spiritual self is paramount to our work with you as well. So no stone is left unturned. This is an individual, drug Addiction Treatment Center Program that offers holistic 12 step treatment all the way through to spiritual transformation that is vitally coupled with other modern perspectives. You choose your recovery paths with the team and we have a unique program for every single one of our clients. 

For our families:

Our intention is to help our clients, but also their families through this course of recovery. Much of addiction is a family problem, so we encourage the family to become a part of the programme by sharing in resources, videos, family pack information that gets us all on the same page at the end of the day.

So in conclusion, what is most important and unique is that we meet you where you are. We are far removed from any kind of clinical setting. Pathways use only the best local, professional services of drug and alcohol abuse counselors, psychologists, therapists and doctors. Plettenberg Bay, a short flight from Cape Town has a well known wealth of highly skilled professionals who service the many annual visitors to the area.
