The Foundation Clinic is located in Johannesburg, South Africa, the largest urban forest in the world, with beautiful gardens to relax and reflect in. The clinic is the flagship treatment centre for the Ubuntu Addiction Community Trust (U-ACT). With TRAIN-EMPOWER-TREAT being the mandate of the Trust, the clinic is an industry leader in the treatment of individuals in line with their available resources.
U-ACT subsidises treatment for those who are unable to afford the shortfalls on their medical aids or do not have the funds to afford private substance abuse treatment. By assisting in the treatment of individuals we are able to empower not only the client, but also families, groups, teams, organisations and communities they live and work in. The treatment is focused on treating the client, as well as working systemically with the family to ensure better treatment outcomes and sustainable family wellness.
The multidisciplinary staff at the recovery clinic comprises of a professional consultant team of a clinical social worker, recovery coaches, trauma coach and counsellor, nutrition and fitness coach, dance teacher, and other certified facilitators, as well as a medical doctor and 24-hour nursing support staff. The clinic’s focus is the treatment of substance abuse and addictive behaviour disorders. The programme is developed around cognitive behavioural therapy and coaching.
