The STAND Community-Based Treatment service is the only registered, professional outpatient treatment service in the entire Langeberg Region of the Cape Winelands, which consists of the Towns of Bonnievale, Robertson, Ashton, Montagu, McGregor and the surrounding farms. The STAND CBT is an evidence-based and fully mobilized SUD Treatment service specifically developed for the Rural population groups in the Western Cape.
It is an eclectic, trauma-informed treatment intervention that has been expanded to include GBV counselling and support, with a strong focus on the inclusion of the family unit and significant others. When the family is involved, other personal and social problems are also addressed such as marital problems, behavioural problems in children, relationship problems, problematic psychiatric conditions etc.
The STAND Community Based Treatment Program works to address a wide spectrum of personal and social problems that present themselves in the family. The program provides a tailored, multidisciplinary treatment service through the provision of professional substance abuse counselling and the integration of existing Government health, social services and other non-specialist services from CBOs and civil society, to ensure the full scope of inpatient treatment is provided in an outpatient community-based setting.
