What Makes Our Addiction Treatment Unique?
Rustenburg offers a holistic and comprehensive programme that is client centred and rooted in understanding the individual as a whole. Addiction and mental health issues are complex and require a dynamic, creative and caring environment.
One of the features of Rustenburg’s treatment offering is the range and depth of experienced staff. Rustenburg employs 4 full-time psychologists, two further addiction counsellors, occupational therapist, specialised therapists, and support counsellors.
Rustenburg Estate is one of the oldest farms in the Western Cape, the largest province of South Africa. The facility is located just outside the small town of Somerset West. It is a 25-minute drive from the centre of Cape Town and is in close proximity to the airport.
Rustenburg Addiction Care is made up of five separate buildings set between rolling green lawns, invoking a campus-like atmosphere. Our facilities are based on a philosophy that sobriety needs to be attractive, if it is to be sustainable.
Group therapy activities and lectures take place in the Manor House which dates back to the 19th century, and has been renovated for treatment purposes. Our team of psychologists and therapists is housed in the Old Cellar, which overlooks a small lake and tranquil garden.
All bedrooms are housed in the newly refurbished Main House, Annex and Cottage. In addition to a generous dining area, there are several lounges, an outside patio and an exercise studio.
As to outdoor facilities, Rustenburg has two swimming pools, a picturesque lake and abundant outdoor areas for short hikes, exercise and recreation.
We currently accommodate a maximum of 38 clients, allowing each client more than enough personal space for recuperation and reflection. Each bedroom has an allocated bathroom which makes for comfortable sleeping accommodation. All rooms are shared with at least one other person.
From a full, nutritionally balanced breakfast and lunch to a wholesome dinner, we provide hearty, home-style fare. We use fresh, locally sourced seasonal produce. Meals are served in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere, prepared by a resident chef and his team.
