White River Manor is an exclusive addiction treatment centre founded in 2015 in the picturesque town of White River in Mpumalanga Province.

Its team of professional specialists and counsellors, who have extensive experience in the field of substance abuse as well as co-occurring mental disorders, offer a comprehensive therapeutic approach to treating your addiction and a steadfast commitment to your long-term recovery.

White River Manor has adopted its own signature approach to treating addiction, which is not restricted to any specific religious denomination and therefore not centred around the traditional 12-Step programme. Instead, you’ll benefit from several advanced and extensively researched therapy methods which are used in both individual and group therapy sessions.

This holistic approach incorporates cognitive behaviour therapy, eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing and dialectical behaviour therapy, as well as music and art therapy, psychodynamic therapy and mindfulness. Family therapy, solution-focused therapy, pastoral or spiritual counselling and sober living and after-care support also feature in the programme.

At White River Manor, you’ll find a safe and protected environment to help you focus on mind, body and soul recovery: the focus on holistic healing ranges from a medical detox, intensive therapeutic process and healthy eating and exercise to wonderful day trips to interact with elephants, go horse riding or mountain bike riding, and indulging in spa sessions and blissful meditation.

The area is the gateway to the iconic Kruger National Park, the Greater Kruger and the famous Panorama Route in a lush, fertile corner of South Africa with a magical tropical climate.

You’ll start your visit to the centre with a thorough consultation; each day begins with good eating habits, exercise and relaxation, then the hours are filled with both individual and group therapy sessions, quiet contemplation and time to process and work through the recovery process.

Luxury accommodation in a gorgeous garden setting, eating well and exercising plus sunshine and lots of outdoor space are what makes White River Manor extra special. Clients praise the warmth, compassion and professionalism of staff there, who include a psychologist, qualified counsellor, specialised nursing sister, therapy specialists as well as physiotherapists, physical therapists, dieticians, spa therapists and even a passionate game ranger.

It’s also highly affordable for international clients with the current exchange rate; for the same degree of luxury and exclusivity, you’d pay as much as three times the price in the UK or the United States.

The newly refurbished main centre offers comfy lounges, an elegant dining room and fully equipped business centre.
