Here’s how we help
We’ll be honest: overcoming addiction isn’t a stroll through the park. However, our multifaceted programme assures you of optimal guidance and support throughout your recovery. We specialize in various forms of psychological treatment, namely Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (BDT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
Trust is what keeps our team and community together. We are ardently focused on helping you achieve a realistic reintegration into your original environment and community. For that, we need you to act. Only talking doesn’t cut it. Re-integration requires commitment, effort, and hard work. If you’re up for it, we promise to support you in every way we can.
"Action is key. Nobody talks themselves into addiction, and we cannot simply talk our way out of it."
“I was at Liberty for 8 months where I truly learnt to live a fun SOBER life again. I could not have achieved this without the great staff and structure offered! I owe my life now to Liberty Home.”
"Thank you for taking me in when I was at my worst and giving me a new start in my recovery. Liberty Home made me feel like part of the family and gave me the healthy guidance and foundation to build myself up again. I have many fond memories from my time with you that I won’t forget."
"Once was lost of hope or any drive, Liberty Home has truly pulled me from the shadows. The compassion and love that I have been showed has restored my faith in myself as well as others. There are no words to express my gratitude towards the Liberty Home family. And that’s exactly what it is, a family which has taught me lifelong lessons, values and principles. And above created bonds of friendship that will always be cherished."
"To everyone it may help/concern:
I suffered from severe alcohol abuse for several years. I refused to acknowledge I had a problem. My environment tried countless number of times to help. Without success. Lots of people have a family member, friend or acquaintance that could really use help. Unfortunately, not many people know how to address the issue correctly. It was only when I met the right people, I was willing to listen and accept help. These people know what I was going through, and still are. Every single day. They showed me a way that makes more sense to me.
With their expertise, the people of Liberty Home gave me an environment where I felt safe. They helped me to put things back into the right perspective. I learned how to address my issues in serenity. Today, I am proud to say I am 6 months sober. I am grateful for all the people who helped me to achieve this."
"Liberty Home a loving caring supporting home for me. I can call it my home. Liberty Home has helped me in various aspects in my recovery. I am very grateful for Liberty Home. I had a great time with the right therapy/treatment. Liberty Home for me is a safe space where I learned that it is okay to make mistakes and just be me. I have learned from my mistakes with the right therapy. Liberty Home helped me to be who I am today. Liberty Home plays a big part of my story and recovery. Again, I am very grateful for Liberty Home and the way they have helped me. Liberty Home will forever be a safe place for me. Thank you to everybody who helped me and being part of my journey."
"Liberty Home came on my path exactly at the time I needed it. I realised I was in need of a new approach and soon, in order to survive. I was ready. But how do you do it? As a young Belgian girl, suffering from an alcohol addiction in combination with an Liberty Home came on my path exactly at the time I needed it. I realised I was in need of a new approach and soon, in order to survive. But how do you do it? As a young Belgian girl, suffering from an alcohol addiction in combination with an eating disorder, it’s hard work keeping up appearances. My mind and my body were so tired. I tried doing it alone, but I couldn’t stay clean. Scared, broken and lonely I arrived in South Africa. Bit by bit, the therapy sessions, sport activities brought back my old self. What made me accept my faith the most? Being surrounded with so many beautiful people who understand my story and who lived my story. I am forever grateful for the LH team, they helped me grow out to a strong woman, capable of facing life’s problems with a clear mind."
