We treat more than just addiction

At Connection Mental Healthcare Rehabilitation Centre, our expertise goes beyond addressing addiction alone.

Our focus is on delivering top-tier mental healthcare and treatment to individuals aged 18 and above who are struggling with addiction. Our rehabilitation clinic is committed to providing the highest quality of care.

Our approach is rooted in evidence-based practices, emphasising your overall well-being while assisting you in tackling troublesome issues such as addiction, and anxiety, mood disorders, past traumatic experiences, disruptive behavioural patterns, or personality issues that may be perpetuating your addiction.
