Tharagay Place offers residential sober living, where clients can begin the process of reintegration while in a supportive and recovery-oriented environment. We are conveniently located in the heart of Kenilworth, Cape Town. It is within direct access to transport and shopping centre’s, as well as being 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 or coaching where necessary.
The TEEPEE 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 requires 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.
Our in-house programme includes:
- Therapeutic duties & cooking
- Weekly individual sessions with a counsellor
- Peer-driven serenity groups
- Weekly community groups
- A weekly relapse prevention group
- A weekly life skills group
- A weekly step discussion group
- A weekly creative/spiritual group
- Family conjoint sessions as required
