The Centre for Healing
Welcome to Jericho Recovery Centre
Jericho Recovery Centre offers an 6 month mentorship programme for men and women struggling with addictions and emotionally related issues.
How we can help you
How We Can Help You
Jericho’s vision is to empower people suffering from substance abuse and related
dysfunctional behaviour to make a success of their lives.
Jericho views recovery not as a destination but a journey. At Jericho we believe in a holistic approach. Jericho aims to change clients’ lifestyles where they leave the centre having found their purpose and become productive members of society.
THE PROCESS Primary Treatment Phase (a minimum of six months)
Men and women are kept separated during this phase so as not to be side-tracked from their recovery.
A faith-based Twelve Step curriculum is part of the programme. Clients do up to Step Five in this phase.
We also do Belief Therapy which is based on the premise that ‘people do what they do because they believe what they believe’. In other words, if you change your beliefs you change your actions.
There are group and individual therapy sessions. Clients see their Counsellor once a week and their Social Worker on a regular basis.
Therapeutic duties are also part of this phase and include the following: cooking, laundry, gardening, landscaping, maintenance and taking care of the animals.
Recreation is a vital part of the programme. We offer soccer, volleyball, gym, hiking, swimming, cross-fit, and horse riding for the physical well-being of the client.
SPONSOR / CLIENT COMMUNICATIONS
New clients are allowed to send and receive a one page email per week.
Upon completion of Step One – Denial (usually within 4 to 6 weeks), the client is allowed to receive phone calls. Phone calls are for a duration of 5 minutes. Two phone calls may be received over the weekend and one phone call may be made on a Wednesday evening. Emails are discontinued once a client receives phone calls.
The writing of letters is encouraged to start reconciliation and restoration within the family structure wherever possible.
Based on merit, after 3 months on the programme, the client is usually allowed on a long weekend visit with the parents / sponsor.
Parents / Sponsors are encouraged to attend an empowerment seminar wherever possible, to ensure a more cohesive relationship. An intervention will be done with the social worker and the family before the weekend.
Feedback from the weekend is also sent via email to the Social Work Department and kept on file.
The client must complete and sign a weekend relapse prevention plan and stick to it, for the duration of the weekend.
After 5 to 6 months, the client should be in the position of completing their Moral Inventory.
To ensure a smooth transition from Primary Treatment, all clients complete a comprehensive Reintegration / Relapse Prevention document.
The minimum duration of the programme at Jericho is 6 months,
based on a study by the World Health Organisation done in 2009, which revealed the following startling results:
All short term treatment programmes, 3 months or less had 95% relapse rate within two weeks of departure from treatment.
We believe that the longer one stays in treatment the stronger one will be.
Hence the motto: “The Longer the Stronger”.
All clients are pre-screened telephonically and via email before arrival.
This is to prevent any unnecessary problems during treatment.
Screening is done so that we have a basic case history of any client who may have a dual diagnosis.
Another important thing to note, is that should a patient be on any prescribed medication,
that all scripts and medication are current and available upon arrival of the client at the centre.
All clients who arrive on the programme go through a thorough body and bag search, as security is a top priority.
All clients are assessed by the nurse shortly after arrival and if it is found to be necessary
an appointment will be made with a General Practitioner.
Everyone goes through an induction / orientation document, within 48 hours of arrival.
This document gives the client a good idea of how the system works and what to expect.
ASSESSMENT / EVALUATION
All clients will see the social worker and be assigned an addictions mentor / counsellor. The counsellor will be assigned at a case conference with a multi-disciplinary team.

Belief Therapy Classes
Confidential and Comprehensive
Our Belief Therapy Classes are based on the premise that we are what we think. Our mental attitudes determine, motivate and influence our behavior. Thoughts become words, words become actions, actions become habits, habits become character, character becomes destiny. The mind can be a battlefield of worry, doubt, confusion, depression, anger and feelings of condemnation are all attacks on the mind. We teach our clients how to deal with unhealthy thoughts and how to focus their minds on new and healthy thoughts. Our teachers share their own personal trials, tragedies, struggles and ultimate victories from their own lives that lead to their wondrous life-transformations.
Our Clients unique case history and circumstances make their addiction unique to them. This service is tailored and focuses on educating our clients and making them strong enough - in mind and body - to be well. We will be with them every step of the way, motivating them and helping them to see that they are never alone in this tough journey.The counsellor and the client will have individualised counselling sessions and work through recovery steps learning how to deal with deep-seated emotional hurts, hangups, and habits. This counselling is strictly confidential and individualised according to each clients unique history.
Group Alcohol & Drug Addiction Treatment
Addicted to Life ('A2L') Community Support
This service is conducted in a group setting because we’ve found that individuals respond well to treatment when treated together. We prefer a nurturing approach, with an emphasis on education and empowerment to move forward. We are here to help clients put this phase of their life behind them and start anew. The Group Treatment is perfect for clients to learn from others' life experiences and to discuss relevant issues at length. We guarantee all of our team members at Jericho Recovery Centre provide the comprehensive quality care needed to ensure long-term recovery. We want to empower our clients on this journey to their new beginning and are here every step of the way to provide support.
Our A2L Community Support focuses on giving the community tools to live informed, free and empowered lives. This community outreach initiative holds regular support groups for individuals living in active addiction, those in recovery and their family and loved ones in need of support. We give talks at local schools and hold Empowerment Seminars and Drug Awareness Campaigns. We are also regularly involved in family interventions and have been well received by the community.
Family restoration is built on the evidence that sustainable long-term success for our clients is most consistently achieved by restoring a supportive family system around each client.
We work on forgiveness and rebuilding broken bonds. We believe that reconciliation is possible and work with our clients to achieve overall family well-being. We provide positive intervention within the family structure and work on bridging the gap between physical, emotional and spiritual needs.
It is important to us to see families being restored and operating as safe, loving, healthy, happy and supportive structures.
Community Feeding Scheme
We have a soup kitchen held at the local clinic in Mashaeng. This gives our clients the opportunity to give back.
Local School Development
We regularly visit the local school, Bestersvlei, where we teach the children how to horse ride, and engage in fun educational activities with them. We are working on getting running water to this school, assisting them in farming and further developing their facilities.
Please contact us at any time to speak with someone who can help you or your loved ones. Any time, any day, we are here to help.
12 Step Program
Hailed as the standard for recovery from nearly any type of addiction
We offer the 12 step program from both a biblical perspective and a secular view. Because recovery is a lifelong process, there’s no wrong way to approach the 12 Steps as the participant tries to figure out what works best for their individual needs. In fact, most participants find that they will need to revisit some steps or even tackle more than one of the steps at a time
