Tharagay Place

why you can’t go wrong

Tharagay Place offers residential sober living, where you can begin the process of reintegration in a supportive and recovery-oriented environment. We are conveniently located in the heart of Kenilworth, Cape Town. The facility is within close access to public  transport and shopping centres, as well as conveniently placed within easy reach of at least 30 Fellowship meetings per week.

The steps from treatment into the real world are not without risk. Tharagay Place offers a safe and supportive environment in which clients in early recovery from substance dependence and behavioural addictions can begin the transition back into society and everyday life. We aim to allow residents ever increasing responsibility over the management of their lives, freedom of movement, financial responsibility and decision making, while still having the benefit of containment, community living and guidance and accountability.

The “TEE – PEE” Programme

The programme is designed to encourage and guide residents to find a productive, healthy and balanced lifestyle, something that often eludes a recovering person. Those residents who do not have some form of employment or study are assisted with career guidance and are encouraged to fulfil volunteer positions. Financial management, life skills and interpersonal relationship development form an important part of the Tharagay Place process.

The programme expects participation in the 12 Step Recovery fellowship through:

  • Regular weekly attendance at fellowship meetings
  • Active contact with a sponsor
  • Doing some regular service work
  • Continued Step work

We accept that some people have objections to 12 Step Recovery for a variety of reasons. If this is how you feel, we are always ready to discuss any other alternative recovery programme that you wish to pursue.

The programme includes:

  • therapeutic duties & evening meal preparation for the community by rotation
  • individual sessions with a counsellor
  • peer-driven serenity groups
  • community groups
  • relapse prevention group
  • life skills group
  • step discussion group
  • creative/spiritual group
  • family conjoint sessions by arrangement

We work closely with a company who provide regular outings and activities (see www.beansbus.co.za) like hiking, camping and kayaking trips. we encourage your participation in these fun activities.
