One in four people will be affected by a mental health problem at some point in their lives.
Mental health problems are now well understood. Therapy, and medication if necessary deliver good results.
However, almost two-thirds of people with mental health issues never seek help.
Stigma, discrimination and a lack of understanding prevent us from asking for help.

Our specialist mental health clinics are fully licensed with 720 beds at 9 different hospitals in South Africa. The therapeutic approach follows the highest international standards of clinical ethics and practice. The program duration can be anything from 5 days to 6 weeks, which your medical aid should cover in full.

Anxiety and mood disorders, eating disorders, impulse control and addiction disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), psychotic and personality disorders, stress response syndromes, somatic symptom disorders, tic disorders, including Tourette's syndrome, dissociative and factitious disorders, sexual and gender issues, other conditions involving the brain like sleep-related problems, dementia and Alzheimer's.
We Do Recover has never met a patient that has a severe addiction and doesn’t have depression or anxiety or some other mental health problem. As a result, mental health issues and substance abuse feed into each other, and one condition will often make the other worse. Because alcohol is a central nervous system depressant, the use of this drug tends to trigger depression symptoms like lethargy and hopelessness.
People with mental health issues tend to self medicate with alcohol and other drugs in an attempt to find some relief. People with severe alcohol and drug dependencies often have mental health issues as a direct result of addiction.
Working out whether it's the chicken or the egg can be important. Whats important is that comprehensive and appropriate treatment is provided that addresses both areas.
Often, dual diagnosis treatment for alcohol and other drugs, gambling, sex addiction, eating disorders and gaming is necessary to achieve meaningful recovery.
