Mudita Cara and Marco helped me save my life! I fought Mudita Cara, Marco, my family, my son and the ppl I love every step of the way. My addiction wanted me to die, it did not want me to live a life of true love, light, peace and happiness. I hated myself, I was an addict for 27years and loved my drug of choice and needle more than anything else. I had no understanding of what a real addict was and how much my addiction wanted to kill me till I got to Mudita Cara. I was a stubborn learner to say the least and fought to get clean every step of the way, but Mudita Cara and Marco never gave up on me, they loved and believed in me till I could love and believe in myself. Today I am a year clean, never in my wildest dreams did I think it is possible to live a life beyond my wildest dreams, but thanks to Mudita Cara for the understanding, Marco for the kindness, love and belief in me and the 12 step program for the tools, if it wasn't for these 3, I truly don't believe I'd be alive today. Thank you, thank you for helping me get my life back. Keep doing what you doing 🙏🏼🔷🙏🏼.

My stay at Mudita Cara was really nice because of the loving and supportive environment that they offer. It’s not a condemning rehabilitation centre but their approach is more helpful and encouraging no matter how much you used or what you’ve done in your past. A huge thanks to Marco Mendoza, my personal Counsellor, for helping me in my recovery process. He is truly an inspiration in just what can be achieved if you do your programme willingly and take suggestions on board. I am forever grateful for him for never giving up on me and for guiding me through my step work, and showing such willingness and care towards me and my story. I recommend Mudita Cara for all addicts who have lost hope and who need support because they helped me so much.

A facility where the councillors really take an interest in your well being and your recovery. I would recommend this institution to any who are serious about their recovery and are desperate to find a new way of living. It is because of these fine people that I have managed to get my life back on track. 10 stars if I could.

I had the privilege of going to Mudita Cara for 3 months from December 2022 to March 2023. After battling with addiction for over 30 years, I found true recovery within Mudita Cara. I was challenged by professional councillors, made to face my demons and left there with a real sense of accomplishment and a strong desire to get better, be better, do better. I owe Marco, Arnaud, Wesley, Michaela and BK my life because each one of them played pivotal roles in literally saving it. Thank you for showing me a new way to live. I would recommend Mudita Cara to anyone who really wants to change their life and find a new way to live, without the obsession that addiction brings.

Mudita Cara was recommended to me by one of the very reputable social workers in Johannesburg as a top primary rehab facility . My son has been admitted there a couple of times. The facility is run in an unprofessional manner and by skeletal staff up until 6 May 2023. The electric fence has not been working nor the garage in the facility as well the gate, no security company. There was intrusion at the facility which has minimum security and had a very bad impact on my son. The place is extremely disorganized and pig style. They do not offer any basics such as curtains in the windows, soap, washing curtains and and everything in shambles. The food is beyond substandard and I will not recommend this facility to anyone looking to rehabilitate their loved ones as it unprofessionally run. Big red flag they also offer NO REFUNDS. My son wanted to leave the facility and they allowed him to walked out before I arrived to fetch him. Marco one of the owners then drove past my son walking home and purposely did not call me that he has seen him as I was frantically looking for him.

Counselors are liars, 20 year old blonde little girl almost destroyed my relationship by telling my fiance she is stuck in a love triangle with my ex wife because she brought my son to visit, terrible place, do not trust them

What a FANTASTIC place Mudita Cara is! I have sent several young men in need of drug detox to the team here and they are SO knowledgeable and SO compassionate. Each guy we have sent to this program is taken care of in every respect. We always know that each guy we send is in very very good hands. I can't say enough positive things about the team at Mudita Cara!
