"People told me rehab was a waste of time and money. It never works. I believed them until I had no other option but to try it, as everything else had failed. Today, things are not perfect but much better than they ever were while I was using drugs. My time in rehab at Tharagay made the difference."
Shahied M, Mitchells Plain, Cape Town
"I had reached one of the darkest time 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."
"I went into treatment at Tharagay quite unwillingly. In fact, at the time, I did not really even believe I had a drug problem. I now understand that is part of the problem. You just don’t see it. Today, I can see that I did not really care about anything, except my drugs. Thank you Tharagay for giving me my life back."
Susan F, Woodstock, Cape Town
"When Tharagay in Cape Town was recommended by my counsellor, it seemed like very far away. However, the distance made all the difference because it gave me some time and space to sort out my alcohol issues, away from my family and friends. Plus, Cape Town is a really fun place to find sobriety."
