A Recovery Centre with a Difference

It is easy to make a statement claiming that Beethoven Recovery Centre is a viable and ideal option for people suffering from mental illness or substance addiction and looking for treatment. As a result, the proof is in the proverbial pudding. Today, we will have a closer look at how Beethoven Recovery Centre can be the ideal recovery centre for people living in and around the Gauteng province.

Gauteng may be the smallest province in South Africa but it is the most productive and most populated province in the country. This province also boasts with the most psychiatric hospitals and recovery centres in South Africa. Therefore, to be an outstanding recovery centre in this part of the country would require catering to every specific need a potential patient might have while on their road to recovery. The total mechanism of our centre is focused on the premise to provide the essential caring for people suffering from substance addiction or mental illness, and grant them the opportunity to a lifestyle free of their addiction or the controlling binds of their mental illness. We have appointed a team of professionals to serve our patients, consisting of general practitioners, a physiotherapist, an occupational therapist, psychiatrists, psychologists, and registered nurses, to name a few. With our permanent staff at the helm of caring for our patients, and available around the clock, our patients can have the peace of mind they need while in our care.

Our premises offer amazing aesthetic value, with our accommodation second to none regarding psychiatric hospitals and rehabilitation centres. Personnel service the rooms of the living quarters, with private laundry being collected twice a week. Our meals are done by an experienced chef who ensures that the patients eat 3 nutritious meals every day, also supplying everyone with snacks 3 times a day to keep the hunger monkeys at bay. We also offer a fairly remote location, away from the busy city life and bathed in serenity to allow our patients to break free from the concrete jungle and focus on themselves. Our centre is at the foot of the Magaliesberg mountain and close to the Hartbeespoort dam, offering a tranquil healing environment for our patients with only a short drive from Pretoria. The moment a patient feels cramped inside their room, they can simply open the door and step outside to experience the beauty of the outdoors around them, granting them the peace of mind they can enjoy rather than focussing on negative elements such as anxiety. We also offer our patients space on our premises to interact in recreational activities to their leisure, with a swimming pool, a gym, table tennis, pool, volleyball, croquet, cricket, and chess available to every patient in our care. Our lush and beautiful gardens enhance the aesthetics of our patients’ immediate surroundings, allowing for leisurely strolls to be enjoyed as well.

Although the environment promotes healthy living and self-healing, it would not be possible without the use of a proper and proven programme for those suffering from substance addiction or mental illness. Our programmes are aimed at educating and equipping our patients to empower them and grant them the opportunity to break free of the ties that bind them from enjoying life to the fullest. The initial couple of weeks would see our patients being educated and informed on their specific addiction or mental illness, allowing them to gain a better understanding of their current situation and mindset. The latter part of the programme is not compulsory, but highly advised, as it focuses on reintegration and recovery to grant the patient the opportunity to live a healthy life.

Nobody can make any guarantees on full recovery regarding substance abuse, and some forms of mental illness can never be completely cured, but Beethoven Recovery Centre can assure that every patient will get optimised treatment for their specific needs. In the end, it is an active choice from oneself to break with any form of substance addiction or to take back control of your life from a serious form of mental illness. With our treatment programme and professional staff, combined with our serene location with amazing aesthetic value, we equip each and every patient to make the right decisions for their future lives, showing them the way to a life of sober living wellness and a healthy state of mind.
