Rehab Centres Gauteng
1) Assessment & Treatment.
Changes treatment centres will provide an assessment to determine the severity of the addiction and mental health problems and begin to develop a treatment plan that will meet the patient’s needs.
We offer the full spectrum of care and outpatient treatment may be appropriate. Should the addiction include withdrawal symptoms, then inpatient treatment will be necessary. Our doctor is very experienced at detoxifying patients with all forms of addictions. Alcohol is usually the most dangerous drug to withdraw from. Once the doctor has completed the physical assessment and prescribed medication to alleviate withdrawal symptoms, the medication will be administered by the 24-hour nursing staff. Detoxification length can range from a few days to, in severe benzodiazepine addiction, weeks or even months. For those who have had sustained recovery and then relapsed – treatment lengths can include a 3-7 day detox and two-week relapse prevention programme focussed on what’s gone wrong and what needs to change. This type of “relapse autopsy” is useful in identifying issues and having a concrete treatment plan in place to ensure accountability.
Most patients stay for a 21 to 28-day primary care phase, and medical aid covers the bulk of costs. We know that for severe addictions, a key predictor of successful rehab is the length of treatment. Research has shown that for these patients rehab of less than 90 days is of little value, which is why we have long-term treatment options available.
Yes, the cost of long-term rehab can be expensive, but what’s the cost of not getting treatment? Addiction rehab is a financial investment, one that pays off handsomely. Californian studies have shown that for every dollar spent on treatment, $7 are saved in a reduction in crime and health care costs. Paying to get your loved one into recovery empowers them to get back on their feet in every way, including financially. Once they’re back to fully functioning, their earning capacity will be much greater.
We offer a secondary care programme that will get patients to 90 days clean and sober in residential treatment. Thereafter many patients choose to live in a halfway house to reintegrate back into daily life with healthy recovery routines. Our facilities base their treatment on the 12-Step abstinence-based model, with a strong focus on mental health. Around 50% of alcoholics and 70% of addicts have what’s known as a dual diagnosis. This means that without comprehensive care, addressing both the addiction and mental health issues, as well as underlying trauma and the causes and condition that contributed to addiction in the first place… the likelihood of a positive outcome for treatment is diminished.
The main focus of primary care is to dismantle denial and allow the patient to gain an acute sense of:
- the nature of the problem &
- the severity of their condition.
Without this being achieved the addicted patient will not see the need for the necessary lifestyle and behavioural changes.
The longer-term objectives in secondary care and halfway house are to ensure the focus remains on the above dual diagnosis and relapse prevention. Once our clients can begin taking responsibility for their recovery they can start building a sober support network. This may include 12-step fellowships, mindfulness and motivation, exercise and nutrition practices, managing relapse symptoms and ensuring their life promotes long-term sobriety.

At first, an individual assessment leads to an individualised treatment plan that meets your specific needs. Detoxification is the first step in treatment and, with the help of appropriate medication, usually the easiest, part of comprehensive rehabilitation. Once detoxified, the real work begins in helping patients to increase their awareness of active addictions consequence’s to themselves, their loved ones, work etc. Once this is achieved we can get down to ’causes & conditions’, the reasons as to why and how we became addicted in the first place.
Our Gauteng rehab centres provide an eclectic mix of individual counselling, lectures and group therapy, as well as engaging family in the treatment process through an educative lecture series and conjoints (family therapy) with your addicted, loved one. Once patients have begun to assume responsibility for their addiction and recovery then the clinical team can begin to look at the reintegration process and help the patient to get back into work and home life with their newfound sobriety.
