Juliana subscribes to the philosophy that “A treatment and recovery programme may entail medical intervention for detox, individual and/or group therapy to address underlying factors and develop new life skills. Where appropriate, family members may be requested to participate in the affected person’s recovery process. Having an accurate pre-treatment assessment to pin-point bio-psycho-socio factors as well as co-morbidities will go a long way to enhancing the effectiveness of the addiction treatment and recovery programme.”
