In the rhythmic pulse of city life that dances through the streets of Johannesburg as the sun takes its leave, there lingers in the air an invitation to a very different kind of gathering. A gathering where hearts are bared, where souls seek solace, and where the twilight hours from 17:30 to 19:30, Mondays to Thursdays, are sacred.

This is the world of Keana “Anchor-Heart” Dias, an HPCSA-registered hero amid the chaos, a Registered Addiction Professional with a calibre forged in the learned halls of SACAP and the Pearson Institute of Higher Education. She is the custodian of hope for many who seek refuge in the elaborate tapestry of the outpatient program she has been faithfully running since 2022.

Anchor-Heart—because like the steadfast vessel amidst the stormy seas, she offers patrons a point of fixed certainty in the ephemeral waves of existence. Meticulously educated in the sciences of the mind and the arts of language, Keana’s Bachelor of Social Science Honours in Psychology endowed her with a Bpsych equivalent, a lighthouse that guides her practice.

But this is not just any practice. This is where the weary, the seeking, the ones grappling with the tendrils of addiction, find a nightly sanctuary free of charge. It’s the embodiment of community support orchestrated by a professional whose understanding of human behavior is both deep and nuanced. Here, the eclectic symphony of human experience finds harmony in group sessions steered by Keana’s adept hands.

Each evening, as the clock chimes half-past five, the space comes alive with the resonance of shared stories, diffusing the day’s burdens in a professionally managed group process. It’s a space defined not by the shadows of challenge, but by the light of collective growth—a testament to the efficacy of a Registered Addiction Professional at work.

“Anchor-Heart” she is fondly named, for she offers a steadfast embrace to each soul embarking on the journey of recovery. Be they novices in the realm of self-discovery or seasoned warriors of inner battles, they gather under Keana’s wing, her sessions a beacon in the night, illuminating the path of healing and connection.

Yes, this is the outpouring of Keana Parry’s dedication—a story etched in the annals of recovery, an ode to the resilience of the human spirit, and a promise that within the walls of this program, you will never have to stand alone.
