Tharagay Addiction Treatment – Cape Town

Tharagay had its beginnings in Cape Town in 1995 and we now have many years of experience that consistently produces successful treatment outcomes. Tharagay has a full spectrum of affordable, quality treatment services and we are able to provide a continuum of addiction care within our treatment system for all alcohol and substance use disorders and process addictions like gambling addiction, sex and love addiction.

Our fees are very competitive. Although we operate in the private sector, our aim is provide quality care at an affordable rate. All our facilities are registered with medical aids. So if benefits are available, your medical aid will subsidise your treatment.

Our clinical teams are devoted to helping you find a sustainable way out of your addiction. The Tharagay continuum of care allows us to place you in a facility most appropriate for your needs, not ours.

We can provide treatment, halfway house and a sober house services and an inclusive aftercare follow up programme.

All our rehabilitation facilities are registered with the Department of Social Development and Board of Healthcare Funders. This means our facilities have met medico-legal requirements and are accountable to a registering authority. This also allows for your medical aid to contribute to the costs of your treatment.

If you are looking for help with a drug or alcohol problem or process addiction, you have come to the right place. We are confident that there is no need to look further!

Dr Rodger Meyer
I have worked exclusively in the world of addiction treatment for more than 25 years. I originally trained as a medical doctor but now regard my areas of expertise as problem patient management, programme development and counsellor training. “How do you make addicts better” has been my life quest. Responding to the needs of challenging patients with long histories of relapse still excites me. I have a special interest in the problems presented by both cannabis and heroin use disorders, the two extremes of the substance use disorders. I have contributed extensively to the development of the addiction treatment network in Cape Town and am committed to ensuring that the Tharagay Group remains the leading treatment service provider in South Africa.
