Why destination rehab in South Africa makes sense

white river manor - Global Banking | Finance

Many Americans struggling with an addiction or dual diagnosis (co-occurring mental illness with drug or alcohol addiction) find the cost of inpatient treatment at a luxury rehab centre in the United States to be out of their price bracket. 

The cost of unrivalled amenities, exclusiveness and a cutting-edge treatment programme at luxury residential facilities in the US can set you back anything from $30 000 and $100 000 for a month’s stay. It’s no wonder luxury rehab is the domain of the rich and famous.

Suppose you can’t afford one of the high-priced luxury rehab facilities in the US? In that case, you are left with the choice of a clinical hospital environment or a rehab centre that offers a very basic package and often there is a long waiting time before you can be admitted.

This scenario has given rise to what is coined ‘rehab tourism’, where people travel to overseas destinations to receive high-quality addiction care for a fraction of what it costs in the US. Most medical insurance companies cover the cost of destination rehab for the simple reason; the medical aid company saves a substantial amount if the person is successful in their recovery and maintains their sobriety.

What are your options for destination rehab?

South Africa has made a name for itself for destination rehab par excellence, offering exceptional inpatient rehab facilities with the highest level of specialised care. It’s estimated that addiction and wellness treatment is up to 65% cheaper in South Africa than in the United States, based purely on the USD-South African Rand exchange rate. 

With this cost-saving, you can afford to stay twice as long at a luxury inpatient rehab centre in South Africa and benefit from an advanced treatment programme. It’s been proven that extended stays with intensive inpatient treatment offer you the best possible chance of long-lasting recovery.

On the South African exchange rate, you can also afford to tag on a visit to Cape Town Route to explore the famous Mother City. You can also afford to spend a few days at a nearby game reserve and enjoy Big 5 safari drives and the healing power of the bushveld.

Our top pick for a premium inpatient addiction and wellness treatment centre in South Africa is White River Manor in Mpumalanga. The treatment centre is located in a beautiful, secure countryside setting on the outskirts of White River, which is the gateway to the iconic Kruger National Park, the finest game reserves in South Africa and the world-famous Panorama Route.
