Phumuza Recovery Centre

1 Opening potPhumuza Halfway House

(Take a break)

Make it a memorable break away with us.
Phumuza means "Take a Break" in Zulu & that is exactly what we would like you to do.

The property lends itself to an atmosphere of recovery; with ample space for the client to come to terms with their recovery.

We have 100 acres of diverse indigenous bushveld, prolific birdlife and small game.
There is a quaint lookout tower which provides an awesome view.

The terrain is fairly flat with interesting walks on well set out paths.

Phumuza offers a full board, sober living house for anyone wanting to make a full recovery from addiction. Sober living after rehab, is a critical step for the transition that every addict needs to make. 

We bridge the gap from a treatment centre back into a daily living routine. Daily life follows a routine which includes meal times together, chores and relaxation.

Addicts often relapse when they suddenly get their freedom back and are faced with the triggers and stresses of daily life.  

At Phumuza residents regain freedom of movement, which is progressive from month to month. It goes hand-in-hand with strong accountability and drug testing.

Residents are encouraged to enrol in studies, re-open bank accounts, find work and attend meetings.

We aim to provide a medium to long term Half-Way House facility for those who have completed treatment (either as in-patient or out-patient) at a Drug & Alcohol Rehabilitation Centre/ Out-Patient program and are in need of preparation for reintegration into society.

With a key focus on equipping residents with relevant life skills, as well as providing a nurturing environment where residents are treated with unconditional love and acceptance, Phumuza provides the perfect stepping-stone between ‘Rehabilitation Centre and Real World’.

Our location in the unspoilt bushveld of Bela Bela, away from the stresses of an urban environment, enables residents to unwind and enjoy the tranquility of the surroundings whilst being able to fully focus on personal development and continue their recovery. Phumuza is founded on Christian principles and values.
