Recovery From A Psychiatric Illness Is Possible
Discover the power of unmatched care and love at Papillon, SA’s only Private Psychiatric Recovery Centre.
Mental Health Recovery starts here.
We’re waiting for your call.
Tired of failed hospital stays?
A leading Johannesburg psychiatrist Dr Vuirli says: “The team approach at Papillon is unique in private – teams do not meet and work collectively in 21-day programmes. But most importantly, the 90-day programs at Papillon make the biggest difference to clients. Papillon allows people to find their path in life which is the greatest healing required. The free aftercare ensures that the high success rate is maintained.”

Facilities You Can Feel At Home In
The journey to recovery begins in comfort—somewhere just like home. You’ll find our 26-bed facility tucked away in Ferndale, Johannesburg and gardened by lushly green trees. It offers bricked pathways to meander along, and a refreshing pool to cool off in.
What do you do next?
We’d like to meet with you before agreeing to admit you (or your loved one). This is our chance to get to know you better, hear your story and determine if we can help you with our programme.
So contact us or fill in the form and we’ll set up an in-person or virtual meeting at a time that suits you.
What will it cost?
We are a private facility that’s not attached to any medical aid or government-funded programme. Although we prefer payment upfront, we can discuss and arrange a payment plan that works for you.
How can you be admitted and what do you need?
To be accepted for admission, you need to tick certain criteria. For example, you must be over 18 years of age, capable of administering medication with supervision, and able and willing to participate in treatment and social gatherings. If you’re not sure, please don’t stress. Give us a call and we can still set up a meeting.
Do you exclude people?
While we’d love to help everyone, we also accept our limitations. We know with whom we work best. Having said that, we still encourage you to reach out and arrange an in-person or virtual meeting. You can depend on us for a truthful assessment.
