Changes Long-Term Rehab Facility

A long-term facility for those who need more time integrating back into society

River Manor – colloquially referred to as ‘The Farm’ – is Changes’ long-term treatment facility. Here clients are given the space and time to address their addiction in-depth in a safe and calm environment. It is a 20-bed facility located on a spacious plot in Ruimsig.
Patients look after a number of farm animals and benefit from animal therapy including equine therapy. Clients follow a therapeutic routine and are guided by professionals as they develop and grow.

There is ample time for self-reflection and clients are guided to develop a deep level of self-awareness. Long-term treatment greatly enhances an individual’s chance
of achieving successful long-term sobriety. Nutritious meals are provided and clients’ dietary needs are considered and catered for. Clients benefit from 24-hour supervision including a nurse on night duty catering for any emergencies they may face.
