When people hear the word “addiction”, they tend to jump to stereotypical assumptions about addiction and commonly conclude that addicts are weak-minded people. However, addiction does not discriminate and can develop in anyone who constantly consumes addictive substances – even substances that are legally sold. Caffeine and nicotine are both addictive substances and are consumed daily by millions of people in South Africa. The same goes for alcohol – being one of the most consumed addictive substances in Gauteng.
Alcohol is Everywhere
Young adults are constantly consuming alcoholic beverages within social settings, while alcohol is also present in various medications. Therefore, it is crucial to be aware of the contents of the items that you put in your body, as some will contain addictive substances such as alcohol, caffeine, or nicotine. The problem with constantly consuming such items is that your body can become dependant and could lead to cravings, which will directly impact your way of thinking and how you prioritise certain elements of your life.
Alcohol addiction is Gauteng’s leading form of addiction. It outweighs the sheer number of people who are addicted to drugs, nicotine, and caffeine – leading to staggering amounts of people who suffer from the negative influence that addiction has on their lives. Beethoven Recovery Centre creates a safe space for people who want to overcome their alcohol addiction and forge a new path in life – one that is free from the ties that bind.
Our Alcohol Rehabilitation Programme
We admit people of 18 years and older to our alcohol rehabilitation programme, strictly on a voluntary basis to ensure that the person is committed to overcome their addiction. We facilitate a programme that spans over 7 weeks and is split into 2 distinct phases. The first phase aims to educate and empower our patients to open their eyes to the severe impact that alcohol addiction has on their lives. This allows them to come to the realisation that their addiction is something that they should overcome to take back control of their lives and be rid of the binding ties that hold them back.
The second phase of our alcohol rehabilitation programme is voluntary and highly recommended for those who completed the first phase. This phase equips the patients to avoid relapsing once they leave our care and reintegrate into their social circles. The path to a life of sober living wellness is difficult to forge on your own. With our assistance, you will have a real shot at overcoming addiction for good.
Our Rehab Centre Facilities
With beautiful mother nature surrounding our facilities, we create a peaceful and tranquil environment that promotes self-reflection for our patients. This gives them the time to truly get to know themselves and identify areas in their lives where addiction has taken control. In return, they can face the challenges of addiction without any busy city noises that can cause distractions and have the time to themselves to mentally overcome these challenges on their own terms.
We offer comfortable accommodation for our patients who are admitted to our alcohol rehabilitation programme – with a professional chef and their brigade who prepare 3 daily meals and in-between snacks for our patients. Our facilities also feature recreational activities and a gym to keep the body active and allow our patients to unwind. A healthy state of mind is crucial to people who face addiction and are working to overcome it – leading to a more effective approach to alcohol rehabilitation.
Make a Proactive Choice
Addicts will normally jump to their own defense when someone confronts them with the idea that they might be addicted to alcohol. Since it is some kind of “achievement” to hold your liquor, an alcohol addict will deny that they are merely a slave to their addiction, which is where the term “functional addict” comes into play. There is no such thing as a functional addict – just someone who denies that they have an addiction problem. We encourage you to stand up for yourself and admit when you need professional alcohol rehabilitation to get back to a life of sober living wellness- where you are in complete control.
