Addiction Treatment

When you are ready to take responsibility for your own recovery and seal the deal, we are here for you. The Pathways team’s programme is designed to take your recovery, safely to a new level. Our in-patient facility provides safe addiction treatment and programmes, comfortable living that is washed by unrelenting ocean views and the calm and tranquility that is Plettenberg Bay. Click here to see all of our treatment programmes.


The addiction treatment and programs is 12 step based in terms of handing over, cleaning house and giving back in your life, three foundation based aspects that the 12 steps are built on. At Pathways we focus deeply on body, mind, emotions and spirit. These 3 working together are in fact what our programme is centered on and we believe without working on all 3 aspects, lasting change is not possible. There are daily AA and NA meetings in Plettenberg Bay so choice is a given and attending at least three per week will provide you with the social recovery framework you need to get well and recover. In-patient recovery work is 100% individualized. Your unique addiction treatment programs, coupled with a recovery focused social setting that is Plettenberg Bay, is the essence of what sets us apart from the rest. We take our client’s recovery seriously and that means working addiction treatment exactly the way it works for you.

Rehabilitation whether from substance, alcohol, mood or food addiction is an on-going process. Pathways addiction treatment programmes made just for you are the next step! At Pathways we emphasize optimal living, the social development of our clients, and a modern yet classical philosophy that brings out the very best capabilities in our clients. It’s never too late to have a happy childhood, and it’s never too late to start re-creating your life they way you have dreamed it should be.


We believe addiction has a route cause in our inner most emotional beings. It is entrenched in opposition to our vulnerability and rooted deeply into our value systems. It is at this root, below the anger, obsessions, hurt, guilt and compulsions that the problem of addiction needs to be dealt with.

Morning meetings are followed by relaxed, intimate and thought provoking groups. Then generally we’re off to start our days, see our doctors, do our individual therapies and so on. Days are bustling at Pathways, yet well planned and non-stressful. Productivity takes first place in our addiction treatment approach.  Each person has different things to do each day. Different addiction treatment activities and projects are available for clients to get stuck into. These assist us in learning how to plan, organise, execute and manage tasks. Once you get the hang of it, no project will seem to tough to tackle. Afternoons are split in the week between work and physically seeing the bigger offering of nature. There is never, ever nothing to do in Plett! Clients and therapists gather and go do fun projects together whenever they can. These activities include forest horse rides, hikes, sunrise walks, biking and many other things that help us get out of our comfort zones and into near things. Comfort zones never get people to grow to well. Staying stuck, and lost, fast becomes a thing of the past when people are allowed to do things at their own pace, with their own input. Fear in terms of an acronym is false evidence appearing real! We avoid believing things will be painful, just like we use substances in belief they will be pleasurable. But the reverse is true. Paradox at its finest. Addiction treatment programs need to cater for these aspects, this we provide a holistic approach that is physiological and well as psychological and spiritual. This is called the three pillar approach and holds a key to the success and failure as it is experienced in many addiction treatment programmes.
