Priory is the UK’s leading independent provider of addiction treatment services. We now work in partnership with Bloemendal Addiction Treatment Centre in South Africa to offer the best possible support for making a strong and lasting recovery from addiction. Bloemendal is an inpatient addiction clinic located in the Western Cape area of the country, specialising in dependencies such as alcohol addiction.

With the Indian Ocean to the south and the Atlantic to the west, the Western Cape is a truly remarkable part of the world, with a stunning backdrop of rocky peaks, sun-drenched landscapes and magnificent sunsets. Located at the heart of the Western Cape, Bloemendal Farm offers an unmatched setting for getting your life back on track.

The addiction treatment programme

Patient safety is extremely important to Priory so we begin by accessing your readiness to travel. We provide a detoxification period if required, which would take place in a UK Priory Hospital to safely manage withdrawal symptoms. Your dedicated programme co-ordinator will be responsible for managing the entire process from admission to aftercare.

Your primary care will take place in South Africa. The treatment period is 28 days, with an option to extend this to 56 days. You will be a part of the decision making process throughout your stay and guided through the treatment by an experienced psychologist, who will work with you three times a week for the duration of treatment. Bloemendal takes a holistic approach, with treatment programmes including:

  • Group therapy
  • Psycho-educational sessions
  • Mindfulness workshops
  • Dialectic Behavioural Therapy
  • Psychodrama
  • Meditation
  • Guided physical exercise
