Oasis is a boutique residential addiction recovery centre. In the heart of South Africa’s Garden Route, our beautiful environment supports change through the integrative treatment of addictive behaviours.


By identifying the root of the problem, we work with our clients to develop new ways of communicating and coping. The most effective and long lasting recovery comes from uncovering and understanding what function addiction serves in our clients’ lives. The Oasis integrated community provides the opportunity to practice new skills in a safe space.


The Oasis way is to empower people in their journey of discovering who they are… Without addiction, obsession or compulsion. Their mission is to rebuild lives through hope, compassion and a dedication to excellence.

Oasis is family-owned and run by Kathryn and Frank de Gouveia. Kathryn and Frank came together because of their passion and dedication to guiding people through the challenging journey of addiction. They have 30 years of working experience between them.


In November 2017, Kathryn and Frank took the leap of leaving their positions as the clinical team of an established and highly respected treatment centre in Cape Town. They set their hearts on taking over Oasis, an internationally recognised addiction rehabilitation boutique. They have put together a team of experts and professionals to create an innovative and individualised treatment approach.


The Oasis team has taken this journey with many clients over the years… Helping others to find freedom from addiction and co-morbid psychiatric conditions.

Activities include Hiking, Canoeing, Stand Up Paddling, Elephant Walks, Wildlife Tours, Horse Riding, Golf, Swimming, Yoga, Art, Drama and more.
