Step Away is an alcohol and drug rehabilitation centre in South Africa, we address alcohol abuse and drug addiction treatment holistically.
We offer a well-structured rehabilitation programme that is all-encompassing and supports the individual patient with the best professional addiction recovery programme possible.
Our addiction recovery programmes cater to both men and women over the age of 18, with Step Away being one of the few rehabilitation centres to accept both genders.
Experimentation during adolescence is normal; there are a number of changes that people have to adjust to. Teens explore their new interests, discover new social structures and adapt to some new physical changes.
Throughout the years of transition there is a greater vulnerability to addiction because of the social changes youth face and the development stages their brains go through.
These stages involve the development of the parts of the brain which are responsible for impulse control and decision-making, including parts which regulate instant gratification and emotional expression.
Estrangement from society is one of the biggest factors that individuals that struggle with substance abuse face when trying to integrate back into an ordinary or somewhat normal lifestyle post their addiction and rehabilitation treatment.
After an individual accepts and candidly admits their addiction to a substance they are often faced with reactions of distrust and scepticism from their loved ones and their community, these responses are expected as there is a primarily negative stigma attached to the disease of addiction.
At Step Away clients voluntarily enter a safe and secure facility in which an intensive substance abuse rehabilitation programme is the cornerstone of the client’s daily activities.
Often we meet clients who have attempted out-patient rehabs in PE but have found themselves relapsing into substance abuse thereafter. Most of these clients achieve success however through the Step Away Treatment Centre’s residential programme which is situated in Bluewater Bay, Port Elizabeth.
