The Reason for Psychiatric Care

Psychiatric care is a specific medical field that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of mental disorders, also referred to as mental illness. These are abnormal behaviours, originating from emotional, psychological, or physical trauma, which may have a drastic and immediate effect on someone’s life. It is mostly affecting people over the age of 23, regardless of race, gender, or sexual orientation. Various mental illnesses carry unique and recognisable symptoms, allowing the identification of these disorders to some extent. These behaviours are related to an individual’s thinking patterns, emotions, or perceptions, appearing in forms of schizophrenia, dementia, anxiety, depression, and eating disorders, which can negatively influence that person’s daily working routine, as well as social and family relationships. Certain types of mental illness can only be treated to certain extents, as it is almost impossible to be cured completely, while other forms of mental illness can be overcome with the correct treatment. It is highly advised to consult a professional about the various types of mental illness and the available treatment for specific types to determine which path of action is mandated to get the best results.

Psychiatric Care at Beethoven Recovery Centre

It is a daunting venture to be admitted for psychiatric care, and finding the ideal centre can be an even more daunting venture. At Beethoven Recovery Centre, you will be treated with dignity and integrity, with our staff treating every patient with respect and friendliness. In our well-equipped psychiatric care unit, a patient is treated with a world-renowned programme, using the bio-psycho-social-educational and spiritual approach. This programme is flexible and can be adapted to the circumstances and situation of every individual patient. It starts with a psychological consultation and a medical examination, leading to a psychiatric evaluation to determine a unique treatment plan for every individual patient. The programme is complemented by group therapy sessions, including art and music therapy. Adding to this incredible programme, we also offer methods for emotional education to our patients, assisting them to regain self-awareness and a healthy perspective on life. This implies that every facet of the patient’s life is assessed to identify problematic areas, with the focus on overcoming the challenges and facing their mental disorder head-on.

Beethoven Recovery Centre offers a professional psychiatric unit that is located close to Pretoria, next to the Hartbeespoort dam and at the foot of the Magaliesberg mountains, for a remote and tranquil environment that is focussed on healing, and creates a place of solace for our patients. Within this relaxed environment, our patients have the opportunity to face and overcome their mental disorders with the assistance of our professional team and world-renowned programme to get our patients to a healthy state of mind.
