WHEN YOU CAN STOP YOU DON'T WANT TO,
AND WHEN YOU WANT TO STOP, YOU CAN'T.

Reception at Oum El Nour starts with an overall
evaluation to pinpoint specific needs and help
guide the user through counseling, rehabilitation
and its recovery process.

WE ARE NOT TELLING YOU IT IS GOING TO BE EASY,
WE ARE TELLING YOU IT IS GOING TO BE WORTH IT.

Rehab at Oum el Nour is a process that targets both
psychological and physiological factors that are essential
to a full recovery, lasting abstinence, reintegration and
productive function in mainstream society all in a soothing
and calm environment surrounded by exceptionally
qualified people at your side. We provide both in and out
patient rehabilitation.

YOUR LIFE DOES NOT GET BETTER
BY CHANCE, IT GETS BETTER BY CHANGE.

The last step of the rehabilitation process focuses
on integration of the individual into mainstream
society and productive function
