The mission statement of Beethoven Recovery Centre

One of the obstacles we experience nowadays in our country, is prejudice and discrimination on various levels ??? serving to prevent a person from getting help and the necessary care they need ??? as people are fearful of being judged or mocked at. Another obstacle is bad service delivery, like those being exposed in the media a while ago. At Beethoven Recovery Centre no-one will experience this kind of behaviour towards them, which makes the stay and treatment much easier and more inviting for all.

To support and understand the passion of our people at the centre, it is important to take heed of the following mission statement: The primary mission of the Centre is to provide an effective, intensive, integrative, quality and evidence-based programme and service for individuals, without discrimination on the basis of ethnicity, race, creed, colour or sexual orientation. When you or one of your family members or friends think of Beethoven Recovery Centre, this comforting statement must jump to mind, especially with reference to our psychiatric care unit.

Our psychiatric care unit

At this unit we take care that all our patients are treated with dignity and integrity so that they can retain their human dignity. The model that we follow is the bio-psycho-social-educational approach, being derived from, and added to the biopsychosocial approach in which the importance of understanding human health and illness in its fullest context is emphasised. In this approach, the biological, psychological, and social factors, together with its complex interactions, serve as a way to understand health, illness, and health care delivery, and are systematically considered. Methods for emotional education are added to this to make the patient whole and healthy again. This includes a holistic-spiritual approach where the professionals examine all the facets of a person???s life, as it is a mixture of these facets that have caused the person to end up at our psychiatric care unit.

This unit boasts with constant and continuous psychiatric supervision, delivered to the patients in compliance with international rules and regulations.
