compulsive Obsessions and behavioural problems.

Our Program

We offer treatment that is a conglomerate of three highly recognised treatment programs in addiction intervention i.e.: The Christian based 12 step program, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Belief Therapy. All three intervention models are delivered through group sessions, counselling sessions as well as information classes.

A personal Treatment plan is compiled by the multidisciplinary team of Nieuwefontein with the assistance of the information provided by participants and their family members during Comprehensive Assessment. Participants receive weekly counselling sessions, weekly sport therapy sessions in winter (three in summer), four group therapy sessions per week, and four information classes weekly.

All these intervention sessions are complemented by activities, responsibilities and exercises that are aimed at providing the participants the opportunity to apply principles learnt in sessions. Weekly individual counselling sessions are based on the literature, techniques and principles of the following:

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
  • Processing of Celebrate Recovery (12 Step)
  • Problem Solving
  • Goal Setting
  • Motivational Counselling
  • • Strengths Based Theory
  • • Journaling Therapy
