We are a dedicated, patient-focused rehab in Cape Town
Tharagay is devoted to the recovery of our patients, and we are committed to ensuring the best treatment outcome for you or your loved ones.
Tharagay is registered with both the Board of Healthcare Funders and the Department of Social Development.
We Embrace The Family In Our Process
At Tharagay, we strongly believe that the family is a vital part of the rehab treatment process. We encourage all family members and loved ones to participate in the rehabilitation programme by attending meetings, conjoint sessions, and by exploring their own experiences with the person suffering from addiction. The eventual rehab treatment outcome is often determined by the contribution of the family, who are often most affected by the problem.
Our Peace-Of-Mind Rehab Strengths
Tharagay is the top rehab in Cape Town, helping patients to navigate the journey to a successful and sustainable recovery. We have more than two decades of experience in rehab treatment and specialise in the treatment of challenging patients. Our individualised treatment is grounded in a sound medical understanding of the problem.
25 years of experience
Tharagay is one of the longest-standing rehabs in Cape Town, founded by a medical professional with years of knowledge invested in our treatments.
Registered and certified
We are registered with the Department of Social Development and Board of Healthcare Funders ensuring accountable and quality care.
Experienced and medically trained staff
Our staff has professional training and exceptional experience when dealing with difficult cases.
Our treatments are tailored for the individual patient, treating more than just the addiction, and we always take the bigger picture into account.
Treatment grounded in sound medical knowledge
The foundation of our treatment is sourced from a refined Minnesota Model using a sound medical understanding as our therapeutic foundation.
Psychological problems always addressed
Our rehab programme will always include attention to your psychological problems, such as depression and trauma, as part of the process.
Difficult cases are our speciality
Our years of experience position us as the best rehab in Cape Town to manage especially difficult cases with multiple relapses or failed previous rehab admissions.
Unique 3 Phase Facilities
Our model works in three phases: a primary addiction treatment centre, a halfway house, and a sober-living residence providing for each step in your recovery journey.
Easy Medical Aid Payment
One of the major concerns for those entering rehab programmes is the cost. At Tharagay, we work with most major medical aids to cover the cost of addiction and substance abuse treatment. In certain instances, a co-payment might be required. Our patients have access to the best possible care without having the extra stress of fees and payments. We believe that in the end, addiction always costs more than treatment.
"I Am Starting To Look Forward To The Future"
“I had reached one of the darkest times of my life. I didn’t want to live anymore and the peace and comfort I had always found in alcohol and drugs wasn’t working anymore. As a final resort I decided to come to Tharagay. I’m finding things I want to live for and am starting to look forward to the future. Thank you Tharagay for helping me find hope in my life again.”
What Do We Treat?
We treat the person, not the problem. Tharagay has experience in multiple substance abuse and addiction types. We pride ourselves in offering individualised rehab treatment for every patient we admit. Our team has significant insight in dealing with different symptoms related to these issues, including, but not limited to, the following addictions:
We match the person to the programme at our individual rehabs, treating the individual and not just the problem.
"It's Been Special, Fun And Loving"
"It’s been a journey, I will always remember the time I have spent with you all. It’s been special, fun and loving. All of my respect to all of your beautiful people! Thank you to all the counsellors for your best efforts to keep us happy and sane. Love you always. And to all the staff and RA’s for looking after us during this time. You are a blessing to me. And I respect the work that you do for the community.
Live long and prosperous."
Our Treatment Services
We offer Primary, Secondary, and Tertiary treatment rehab programmes, all with differing lengths of time based on the needs of our patients. We provide addiction treatment, a halfway house and a sober house, as well as an inclusive aftercare follow up programme. This 90 day combination often produces the most astounding rehab results for our patients.
Let Us Help You Decide
Not everyone who uses drugs is an addict. By the same token, most people who drink alcohol are not alcoholic. It can be difficult to decide. Let us help you. Fill out the free online assessment, submit and we will advise whether you have a substance use problem that requires treatment.
