Psychiatric Hospital

Professional Psychiatric Treatment at Beethoven Recovery Centre

Psychiatric hospitals are set up to deliver psychiatric care to people suffering from mental disorders and illnesses. Unfortunately, several of these facilities only focus on treatment for the mental illness and not the individual as an entity. At Beethoven Recovery Centre, we flip the script on professional psychiatric care, employing a programme that delivers a wholistic approach to psychiatric treatment that can be tailored to each individual’s needs. Therefore, our patients receive specialised care that revolve around who they are as opposed to only putting the focus on their mental illness.

Creating a Relaxing, Stress-Free Environment

Beethoven Recovery Centre is located outside any big city, next to the Hartbeespoort dam, and surrounded by mother nature to ensure that our patients can enjoy the peaceful and tranquil surroundings as opposed to consistently being distracted by the busy city hustle. We offer comfortable accommodation for our patients as well, along with a professional chef that prepares 3 meals a day and in-between snacks. Our professional medical personnel is available around the clock for our patients. As a result, our patients can relax and focus on their treatment during their stay with us.

Misconceptions About Mental Disorders

It was not so long ago that the word “crazy” was used to describe someone with a mental illness, no matter the type of mental disorder such a person was suffering from. Luckily, mental health awareness has led to people being educated about mental disorders to better understand the impact of such disorders on people suffering from them. More importantly, people are learning about different types of mental disorders, banishing the idea of calling people “crazy” when suffering from something that they have no control over. This also led to people being more comfortable to be admitted to psychiatric hospital and care facilities, seeking the professional care that they need to live their lives to the fullest.

The Possibility of Developing a Mental Disorder as an Adult

Some people are under the impression that mental disorders will never have a role to play in their lives, as the majority of mental disorders have a childhood onset or are genetically inherited. Unfortunately, mental disorders such as PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) and severe depression can develop during adulthood as a result of going through a life-changing or life-threatening event. Luckily, such disorders are not permanent and there are professional psychiatric treatment options for people suffering from them. This is where Beethoven Recovery Centre can make a true difference in a person’s life, giving them the means to take back control of their lives and overcome their mental disorder for good.

As an adult, you are bound to face challenging and troubling times. Daily work routines can induce stress, while other elements can cause depression and sadness. Therefore, it is crucial to be aware of your own mental health to ensure that you can seek professional psychiatric care when falling down the proverbial rabbit hole. Life-changing events such as getting divorced can have a drastic mental impact on a person, even though people choose to play it off and not admit when something is seriously wrong. Living in South Africa, chances are also good that you might be a victim of a petty crime. Once again, people underestimate the impact of such an event and that it could lead to developing PTSD.

Recurring Treatment for Chronic and Episodic Mental Disorders

Some mental disorders are chronic and/or episodic, requiring recurring psychiatric treatment solutions. These mental disorders include developmental disorders and genetically inherited disorders, covering a fairly broad spectrum of mental illness. Therefore, each patient will have their own unique set of circumstances that are different from the others, even if they have the same mental disorder as another patient. In the end, a psychiatric hospital is not enough. You need a professional psychiatric care facility that will treat you like the individual that you are.
