Lotus Youth Development Drug Education, Holistic Lifestyle and Training Centre (Therapeutic Community) is a Registered Non-Profit Organisation: A new approach to drug rehabilitation by focusing on non-medical / holistic / spiritual detox (Sauna and Multi Vitamin Supplements), rehabilitation introduction of a holistic lifestyle (yoga, meditation, massage, reiki, holistic treatments), proper case management from detox to rehab to after care (addiction is a chronic brain disease, could be lapsable so they need ongoing support long term).
Mission: Our Mission is to provide a safe environment for those in our community trying to overcome the devastating effects of addiction. We seek to restore personal dignity through autonomy and participation within our programme. Our program is affordable to all South Africans and is made possible through donations.
Vision: Professional counsellors, case managers, and a support team assist residents in acquiring or regaining the skills necessary to reintegrate themselves as positive citizens within the community.
Our unique combination of treatment modalities including community-as-method, 12-step and cognitive behavioural therapy will facilitate rehabilitation within a safe and predictable healing force - where personal growth and recovery will occur. We see recovery as not only abstinence from alcohol and drugs but the gradual return to positive citizenship. We aim to be recognized for our commitment to recovery giving positive biological, psychological, behavioural, and social changes to individuals.
