1.7 TERMS OF SERVICE

Reminder, the website, content, social media, our therapy centers, retreats and all our other products/services contained thereon are not substitutes for the advice and treatment of a licensed health care professional, institution or hospital. Not all products and services are suited to everyone. The creators of any of our products/services do not assume, and shall not have, any liability to users for injury or loss in connection therewith. We make no representations or warranties and expressly disclaim any and all liability concerning any therapy or treatment or any action following the information offered or provided within or through the website, our media, on our forms or through our staff or consultant representatives. If you have specific concerns or a situation in which you require professional or medical advice, you should consult with an appropriately trained and qualified specialist in that field, such as a licensed psychologist, physician, psychiatrist or other health professional. Never disregard the medical advice of a psychologist, physician or other health professional, or delay in seeking such advice, because of the information offered or provided within or through the website, media, on our forms or through our staff or consultant representatives. Center for Healing and Life Transformation, our Addiction Treatment Programs and our Emotional and Mental Wellness Programs in no way represent a medical facility, hospital or clinic. We provide very private and specialised therapeutic products, designed by various degreed, experienced and licensed professionals in the healthcare, wellness and coaching industries, whose services are solely made available to you so we can provide modern therapeutic counselling tools and resources from our team of practitioners. We do not provide any medical advice, diagnosis, medical treatment, rehabilitation, hospitalisation, or any detox services whatsoever. If you have a health problem, medical emergency please see a doctor or attend a hospital. We are not an alternative or substitute for any medical services, institutions or doctors. 1.8 REFUNDS ONLINE STORE As all of our products are digital products, courses and services that are intangible.  We follow a blanket no return and no refund policy for all products. This enables prices to be kept consistently low worldwide and for more people to be helped by the organisation, staff and volunteers without additional and unnecessary risk, time-constraints and costs and is standard practice worldwide with these types of products. We offer no shipping for any products as they are delivered online. CENTER STAYS & RETREATS In the event of the client leaving our centre programs, absconding, or in extreme cases, being expelled, all programme and related fees will be forfeited. All payments are in advance and are non-refundable. This is also clearly stated on all invoices in bold and agreed to before any payments are made. Please note that we do not endorse a quick-fix approach to recovery and healing. Families and clients are required to be able to commit financially with regards to the completion of treatment. Considering the above, it is highly suggested that both residents and families commit for a minimum period of 3 months. All clients need to understand that the fees payable in advance, are non-refundable, and that should the patient leave for any reason whatsoever (including but not limited to expulsion) prior to the program being completed, no monies are liable to be refunded. The Center reserves the right to claim recovery of any amount still outstanding, notwithstanding the early termination thereof. All rights reserved.
