Johannesburg is the most populous city in South Africa. It is often referred to as Jozi, Jo’burg, or Egoli and is the provincial capital of Gauteng. A major commercial centre, Jo’burg contributes a great deal of wealth to the Gauteng province. It is the world’s largest city that is not located on a river, lake, or coastline. Jo’burg is the seat of South Africa’s constitutional court, but is not one of the three national capitals.

Joburg rehab programme

Johannesburg rehabs offer world class treatment for a wide range of addictions such as drug addiction, alcoholism, eating disorders, and gambling problems. These treatment procedures are based on internationally accepted research findings – predominantly from America and Europe.

A comprehensive Johannesburg rehab treatment will involve a number of phases. The first step in finding recovery is to undergo a proper alcohol detox or drug detox. This should be done with medical supervision to minimise risk and improve the chance of success. Detoxification is really just the first step in overcoming addiction – it must be followed by behavioural changes if long-term recovery is to be expected.

Johannesburg rehab centres are typically staffed by a multi-disciplinary team. This means that members of various professions work together to help the patient identify the nature of his/her problem and make the changes required to stay sober. Thus the programme that follows the detox phase will include a variety of therapeutic interventions each of which is designed to address an aspect of the addiction. In other words, doctors and dieticians will address physical health, psychologists and counsellors will address mental health and behaviour, social workers will help to construct a support network, and other professionals will offer ancillary therapeutic activities.

“Secondary” Johannesburg rehabs

In South Africa the phrase “Secondary Care” is used as jargon to describe ongoing care past the first few weeks in a clinic. Where “primary care” is usually inpatient and conducted in a very clinical setting the secondary phase allows patients more freedom of movement. These facilities are often styled as residential houses rather than a clinic, and patients are even able to return to work while continuing their treatment. The advantage of booking into a secondary care clinic is that a deeper level of emotional and behavioural concerns can be effectively addressed. Your case worker will assess your progress while in primary care and may make the recommendation for further treatment.

Outpatient Johannesburg rehabs

Sometimes a person is unable to attend an inpatient Johannesburg rehab because they are unable to withdraw entirely from their everyday responsibilities. Such people could be single parents or important executives. In certain cases such people may be referred to an “outpatient” programme. In this sort of rehab the patient is allowed to sleep at home and continue their daily routine while coming to the clinic for regular therapy sessions. Another key advantage to this is that the cost of treatment can be greatly reduced as the clinic does not have to handle logistics such as food and nursing care for outpatients.

It must be noted, however, that not everybody is suited to an outpatient Johannesburg rehab. People on this sort of programme need to demonstrate that they can stay sober or clean from drugs between their therapy sessions. The temptation of the outside world must be faced daily, whereas in an inpatient setting there is considerably less opportunity or temptation to relapse into addiction. A careful (free) assessment by one of counsellors will help you decide if this option is viable for you.

Finding a Johannesburg rehab

There are many different options to choose from when considering a Johannesburg rehab. It’s important to realise that there are subtle (and sometimes obvious) differences between the treatment offered in each clinic. Research has shown conclusively that matching a patient to an appropriate treatment increases the chance of a successful outcome.
