Pret in herstel

You have completed your treatment in the clinic: now you want to continue your recovery. At Pret in herstel, we offer you the guidance you are looking for. We will help you take the next step towards a life free from addiction.


Mission, vision, and objective

With our counselling, you avoid returning to your old situation with wrong friends, disrupted relationships, and unemployment. Instead, we offer you the healthy and stimulating environment you are looking for. Within our protected living environment or with our outpatient counselling, we help you exactly as you need it. We help you return to society healthy, useful, and permanently addiction-free. Moreover, with Pret in herstel, we show you how good it can feel.


Our mission

Pleasant recovery from addiction.


Our vision

Our 8-step model and 12-step Minnesota model help you move forward step by step. At the same time, we offer fun in recovery, thanks to fun activities, committed guidance and principles that make you happy. We are not called Pret in herstel (Fun in recovery) for nothing: we show you that counselling, recovery and re-entry can be a lot of fun.


Our core values

Our core values are openness, honesty, and willingness. We are open to you and expect the same in return. Moreover, we are honest and very willing. If you show the same attitude, we will offer you exactly the guidance you are looking for.

We work according to the guidelines and insights of AA, Alcoholics Anonymous (or more broadly NA Narcotics Anonymous, GA Gamble Anonymous, CA Cocaine Anonymous, etc). This means that in line with our core values, you work in 12 steps towards liberation from addiction. After treatment in a clinic, we will help you take the next step in your recovery.


Pret in herstel: Our DNA

We did not choose our name at random. Of course, we offer the professional support that is important to you. In addition, we put a lot of time and energy into day care that is really fun.

We regularly go bowling, offer you the opportunity to do sports such as outdoor sports, boot camp, boxing, yoga, fitness, water sports and organise outings to, for example, Walibi and the Efteling. Moreover, we celebrate weekends together and have a weekly outing. This way, you can recover while having fun, during a 12-month trajectory.

It is important to us that your recovery is fun. Our clients look back on a good time. This motivates them to keep going, for a permanent addiction-free life.


Our formula: the right approach

You stay in our protected living environment, together with others who, like you, are working on their recovery. This means that you have your own room, and share the living room, kitchen, toilet, and shower with others. This encourages you to build social relationships with them. Moreover, the others are your peers, who are also there for you when things get tough.

During your stay, our counsellors will provide the intensive guidance you need. Together, we take care of fun in recovery, with which you work on your addiction-free return to society.


90% are more than satisfied

Our approach is successful, and we are quite proud of that. As many as 70 to 80% of our clients complete their course with us. Moreover, a year after completing our counselling, 88% are still addiction-free (measured by independent research agency Facit). These clients have found their new place in society.

Finally, no less than 90% of our clients are more than satisfied with our guidance and approach. This motivates us to also offer you the guidance you are looking for.

Do you have questions about our offer or would you like to apply? Call us at 070 8 875 874, send us an e-mail to info@pretinherstel.nl or use the online registration form. We look forward to hearing from you!
