Yes, as addiction is classified as a medical disease, and hence falls under category of “prescribed minimal benefits”. We will obtain the necessary authorization from your medical aid society.
Yes, various components of our program can be done on an out -patient basis, or at times to suit individual needs.
The intensity and duration of treatment offered at ARCA does not fit the requirement imposed by insurance. We do not place any limits on the individual, group and family sessions. ARCA however will provide an itemized bill for you to claim reimbursement. The amount of reimbursement is based on the type of policy and the services used.
Addictive disorders impact the patient and their families in multiple ways. Measuring success is not just helping patients get off the alcohol or drugs. At ARCA we measure success by looking at several parameters including sobriety, family and social relationships, work and educational functioning and developing recovery support.
No. The Arca team works with the patient and family to determine the ideal length of use for medications. Some medication can be taken for a longer time to protect the patients from relapsing.
We consider addictive disorders as a chronic medical disease with a strong behavioural component. Any request for help should be treated as a crisis and ARCA provides same day appointments. We medically detox patients to provide relief from the withdrawal, anxiety and restlessness. We then seamlessly start you on anti-craving medications to block the cravings for alcohol or drugs. One of the most effective relapse prevention therapies is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy which is utilised at ARCA JHB.
A caring well-trained professional team offering you state of the art individualized treatment from day one to the end of the program. Each member of the team works with you to achieve your goal of long-term recovery.
ARCA rehabs is a private treatment centre so unfortunately we cannot offer free treatment.
ARCA considers ‘cold turkey’ detox as inhumane which may compel the patient to discontinue treatment. The medications used during and after detox provide relief from the withdrawal symptoms and protection from potentially life -threatening effects like seizures. Medications are equally critical to blunt the cravings that can reoccur during treatment. When cravings are effectively controlled, the patient becomes more engaged in long-term recovery through individual, group and family counseling.
Special Meals can be arranged with prior discussion. All ARCA centre meals are fully Halaal.
Please see the link below outlining the process of obtaining a Section 33 court order for rehab. Arca does not directly assist in obtaining this court order but we do treat patients under a court order.
