SELF is a non-stock, non-government organization dedicated to the treatment and rehabilitation of individuals suffering from substance abuse and other Attitude Disorders. Since its inception in 1992, it has provided residential treatment and rehabilitation services to more than 1000 troubled men and women of varied ages who have been diagnosed with substance and non-substance dependencies. Of those who completed the program, 85% are living sober and productive lives as empowered members of society, thanks to SELF’s Continuing Care Program.
Through the Value Formation thrust of its Therapeutic Community (TC) approach, SELF not only rehabilitates its clients but works towards developing their personalities and character towards becoming persons of integrity. SELF goes beyond rehabilitation to ensure that each client gains a chance to reinvent themselves. Recent training efforts to maximize the potentials of its young residents have resulted in graduates back in school attaining academic excellence. More than 70% of them have earned themselves a spot in the Dean’s List of various prestigious colleges and universities.
The hallmark of the SELF Program is its insistence that the entire family participate in the healing process. Toward this end, SELF runs a Family Empowerment Program where seminars and family therapy sessions are conducted regularly to heighten awareness and initiate the healing process. SELF also offers job opportunities to those who wish to further their knowledge and skill in the helping profession. Either way, all graduates of the program enjoy the support of the lifetime Aftercare service.
