The Addiction Treatment Programme

Bloemendal base their treatment on the principles of the Minnesota model. 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 will be guided through the treatment by an experienced psychologist, who will work with you three times every week for the duration of treatment.

Bloemendal takes a holistic approach and treatment programmes include:

  • Group therapy
  • Psycho-educational sessions
  • Mindfulness workshops
  • Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT)
  • Psychodrama
  • Meditation
  • Guided physical exercise

Our approach

Priory's philosophy is to provide the very best clinical standards within a caring, nurturing and respectful environment.

In order to maximise the success of your treatment, Priory will assess your readiness to travel. Patient safety is extremely important to us and we ask that you cease taking addictive substances at least two days prior to flying.

A detoxification period is available if required. Detox would take place in a UK Priory hospital for 5 – 7 days, which can be medically managed to reduce withdrawal symptoms.

We are dedicated to your ongoing recovery and our support continues after your stay at Bloemendal. We provide free aftercare for 12 months which is delivered directly at a UK Priory location and offers group and family sessions.

The environment

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.

Receiving your primary treatment in South Africa is a unique opportunity to escape the everyday stresses and strains of normal life.
