ABOUT US

Who we are?

We are currently a Faith based Substance Abuse prevention, intervention, addict rescue, education, rehabilitation and addiction counseling and support group consisting of recovered addicts with a passion and a purpose.

 

 As recovered addicts we are experts in addiction and how to beat it, because we did so ourselves. We can offer you more insight and expertise in any field related to drug abuse and addiction, whether prevention, rehabilitation, criminality or detection than anyone else.

 

We have more than 10 years of experience we have provided recovery for over hundreds of individuals.

 

Why choose us?

Walking with Winners is a Long-term Residential Recovery program, that differs from typical short-term programs. Short-term programs are often visited again and again by addicts that have relapsed, only temporarily solving their addiction, but never solving the core problems that lead to addiction. This often results in the addict visiting many rehabs, costing them and their families thousands of rand and heartache each time. We are different because we choose to dedicate 6 months working with and recovering each addict. We emphasize on a day-to-day structure, community and faith over the 6 months which will slowly bring the addict out of their drug impacted mindset and turn it into a new way of thinking and living. However we will work with you to develop a recovery plan to suite your individual needs. We are a Faith based rehabilitation center, we believe that labeling a person an addict for the rest of their lives is detrimental to the recovery process because we strongly believe that when Jesus died on the cross at Calvary, he died for our sins. John 8:36 says “Therefore, if the son sets you free, you are free indeed”. What previously addicted persons need to learn to do is to walk in that freedom. Recovery through, and a personal relationship with the Lord, Jesus Christ, is developed and taught daily, not only through the Bible but also through the recovery program “Celebrate Recovery” which has an estimated international success rate of 50% which is quite remarkable since other recovery programs only claim a success rate of between 1% and 3%. We feel that a minimum 6 month period is required for new behaviors to be learned but we advise a 12 month program for best results.

 

Our Definition of Addiction

 

Addiction is characterized by an individual’s progressive loss of control over the continuing use of a substance or behavior. The user becomes obsessed with the substance or behavior despite adverse consequences and vigorously denies the existence of a problem if confronted. The user will do just about anything to maintain their addiction, so it affects not only the individual person but can also be damaging to families, relationships, careers, and many other aspects of life.
