Drug Rehabilitation at Beethoven Recovery Centre
With reference to Gauteng, there are many characteristics that make this province unique within the context of South Africa. Having the biggest population of the 9 provinces, one would assume that it would also produce the most drug addicts. However, the top 3 provinces are the Western Cape, the Free State, and Northern Cape. According to a survey done for the South African Journal of Psychiatry in 2018, statistics show that at any given point of time in South Africa, 4.4% of the population is abusing drugs. This number is a depicted average from 7.9% of all men and 1.3% of all women in the country. Despite these figures, Gauteng has the most drug rehabilitation centres in South Africa at its disposal, as it is the most populated and developed province in this country.
Beethoven Recovery Centre is located on the border of Gauteng and the North West Province, just outside Pretoria, surrounded by mother nature. We believe that being outside the city, in the serenity of nature, adds to the wellbeing and self-healing of our patients. Being at the foot of the Magaliesberg mountains and close to the Hartbeespoort dam contributes to the wonderful environment in which our centre is situated. Not many drug rehabilitation centres in Gauteng have the privilege of being in such a calm and tranquil environment.
Our location in Gauteng supports and strengthens the intended tranquillity and serenity at Beethoven Recovery Centre. From the moment that a new patient enters our premises and walks through our doors, they are treated with friendliness and respect. Our personnel are highly professional and very supportive, ensuring that the patients feel safe and well cared for. Our psychiatric hospital is well-equipped for drug rehabilitation, fully licenced, and has the services of every required medical professional.
Our medical staff include general practitioners, therapists, psychologists, and psychiatrists to only name a few. Our staff adds to the patient’s peace of mind and mental wellness. Our patients are not crammed within the 4 walls of a hospital either. We offer separate living quarters for each of them. These rooms are spacious and are serviced daily, while private laundry will be collected twice per week. Our food is outstanding, as we have the services of an experienced chef who provides our patients with 3 nutritious meals per day. We also supply snacks and hot beverages during the mid-morning, mid-afternoon, and late evening.
Our drug rehabilitation programme is focused on the entire being of an individual person – biologically, psychologically, and socially. The programme can be adapted to fit the patient perfectly within their own situation and circumstances. The programme spans over 7 weeks of which the first 3 weeks are compulsory. During this first phase, the patient learns about themselves and the drug that took over their life, guiding them to take a distance from the drug and make a personal choice to break with it. The second phase is filled with education and training to help the patient stand on their own feet and face life again. This phase makes the patient independent and guides them to reintegrate into their life, free from the ties that bind.
