The Centre & Program
We are a holistic Christian rehabilitation centre that utilizes a three-fold approach of treatment dealing with the body, the soul (the mind, free-will and emotions), and the spirit. Our program runs for 9-12 months as we believe that addiction is a symptom to other deeply rooted issues. It takes time to identify and deal with these issues and to create a new healthy lifestyle. Our program is based on Biblical principles and the practical application of these teachings.
We are located on a tranquil 1600ha game farm, with 14kms of the beautiful Limpopo River running along our border. We are situated in Steenbokpan, Limpopo, South Africa.

for the newest residents.

We provide 3 balanced meals a day, all produce is predominantly sourced from our organic farming projects.
Our main focus is to get residents back to a healthy physical state through closely monitoring their eating habits. Residents are taught how to follow a recipe, cook a wide range of meals and how to bake bread.
We run a tuckshop on the premises that stocks toiletries, treats, coffee, tea etc. The tuckshop is used to teach budgeting skills and stewardship.
Free time is spent doing activities such as ping pong, pool, darts, cricket, volley ball, swimming, fishing and bush walks. It offers a great opportunity for residents to socialize and to learn how to have "clean" fun.
Residents enjoy going on weekend game drives to catch a breath of fresh bush air and to enjoy the wild life on the farm.
