South Coast Recovery Centre (SCRC) has been providing effective addiction treatment protocols since its inception in 2001. We believe that successful and sustainable recovery is achievable for all individuals struggling with addiction. We do not accept the poor rehabilitation statistics, as dictated by society and conventional treatment approaches, and strive to continually achieve record recovery rates.

"Research has shown unequivocally that good outcomes are contingent on adequate treatment length...Participation for less than 90 days is of limited effectiveness, and treatment lasting significantly longer is recommended for maintaining positive results." - United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), 2012

To this end, SCRC maintains its belief that addiction treatment, including treatment of all associated disorders, requires holistic, long-term residential therapy, in order to achieve an internal paradigm shift from a “culture of addiction” to a “culture of recovery”. At SCRC, this therapy is provided in a professional manner by a multi-disciplinary team of specialists; allowing our residents maximum support in all possible areas of treatment, from psychotherapy to didactic training. Our therapeutic team is comprised of counselling psychologists, clinical psychologists, addiction counsellors, social workers, registered nurses, a sessional psychiatrist and a sessional general practitioner, amongst other affiliates, all of whom are wholly dedicated to the individuals in their care.

By this approach, SCRC has witnessed the transformation and restoration of countless lives so far.

"Freed by SCRC "

I had been to 3 different rehabs in the U.K. None of these showed any lasting effect and I continued to be controlled by my addictions until I came to SCRC.

"From the Culture of Addiction to the Culture of Recovery"


South Coast Recovery Centre is committed to the continual development of effective recovery programmes

SCRC specialises in the treatment of addictions, to all substances of abuse. We also treat behavioural disorders – eating disorders, sexual addictions, gaming addictions, gambling addictions, self-harm, obsessive compulsive disorders and mood disorders.

The SCRC programme is founded on the acclaimed international AA and NA 12 Step programmes, in addition to the Spiritual 12 Step programme. Each of these steps is worked in depth, with each resident completing a minimum of Step 7 before graduating from the programme. Besides written work, a holistic treatment programme is achieved through the incorporation of a wide range of other activities, services, groups, therapeutic interventions and educational opportunities.

For every resident, an Individual Treatment Plan (ITP) is developed, which takes into account each individual's unique set of circumstances. This plan, which is reviewed on a weekly basis, provides a framework for each resident's personal development and is adjusted in accordance with their progress and/or dual diagnosis. In treating addiction and other behavioural disorders, it is imperative to treat the underlying issues and dual diagnoses. To this end, SCRC has several specialised programmes specifically structured to address these challenges.
