The Foundation Clinic


The Foundation Clinic Review

Located in the affluent suburb of Oaklands in Johannesburg, The Foundation Clinic is a luxury residential treatment facility that comes with an economical price tag. It specializes in helping individuals with alcohol and substance use disorders and offers a full continuum of care that includes a medical detox, three and six week-long residential treatment options, outpatient programming and aftercare services. The Foundation Clinic prides itself on combining a number of therapeutic methods like the 12 steps, psychoeducation, evidence-based practices and holistic models, which all make for a truly well rounded approach to care. 


With the goal of creating a supportive atmosphere for sustainable recovery, The Foundation Clinic is situated on a beautiful wooded property in a suburb of Johannesburg. With only eight beds available at any time, residents receive both a tight-knit peer community as well as the privacy necessary to begin recovery. Rooms are shared same-sex, one bedroom for two females and three for six males, and include ensuite bathrooms. The facility offers plenty of amenities including a swimming pool, gym, Wifi and several common rooms.

Treatment and Staff

Most individuals entering treatment immediately transfer into the detox program. Foundation provides a medical detox with an around-the-clock nursing team and medication to help curb the effects of withdrawal. Detox can last between five and 14 days. Clients undergo a comprehensive intake assessment that includes a medical history and physical evaluation. This assessment helps the team determine the most effective treatment plan formatted for the individual. While the length of treatment varies depending on the specific needs of the client, Foundation Clinic offers a 24 day CBT program, a 24 CB Coaching program and an extended 42 day program.

The Foundation Clinic does not believe in a “one size fits all” mentality when it comes to addiction treatment. Instead, the facility customizes treatment strategies to the individual using a multi-faceted approach that integrates the 12-step method, evidence-based models, holistic methods, relapse prevention and psychoeducation. Clients in residential care engage in individual, group and family therapy rooted in CBT as well as recovery coaching and holistic measures like art and music therapy, ecotherapy and meditation.

The Foundation Clinic employs a multidisciplinary team comprised of clinical social workers, psychologists, recovery coaches, a house manager and nursing team. Without a physician on staff, medication management is not available.


The Foundation Clinic also offers a recovery integration program that lasts between three and six months as well as 12 months of outpatient and aftercare.

In Summary

Located in Johannesburg, South Africa, Foundation Clinic offers world-class residential care for clients struggling with addiction. The facility provides a medically-assisted detox, three different residential programs, outpatient services and aftercare. In addition, Foundation provides an integrative treatment solution that includes the 12-step method, evidence-based practices and holistic models, all customized to the individual client’s specific needs. For clients seeking an experienced team, upscale accommodations and comprehensive care, The Foundation Clinic is a great option.
