Psychiatric Clinics

Mental Health Treatment Facilities and Services

As experts in the field of mental health, we are deeply committed to providing outstanding care. Globally, mental health issues impact one in every four individuals at some stage, demanding professional intervention. Therapeutic methods, supplemented by medication when clinically indicated, prove effective, yet regrettably, a majority of those affected may decide against seeking assistance.

Pervasive stigmas, societal discrimination and insufficient awareness deter individuals from reaching out for the support they need.

Our array of specialist clinics are fully accredited, harboring 720 beds across nine distinguished hospitals throughout South Africa. These facilities adhere closely to globally recognised clinical ethics and practices offering programmes from five days up to six weeks, typically endorsed and funded by medical aid.

Crafted to embrace all demographics, our comprehensive programmes cater for a diverse patient portfolio, including young adult (ages 13 – 18) to adult and geriatric psychiatry.

The essence of quality therapy resides in its holistic approach, calling for a multidisciplinary team of seasoned and certified professionals. Our treatment model is integrative, confronting not only the clinical symptomatology but also the broad spectrum of physical, psychological, relational, legal, social and historical facets of each patient’s condition.

Within our multidisciplinary framework, we house an array of specialists:

  • Psychiatrists
  • Psychologists
  • Occupational Therapists
  • Social Workers
  • Registered Counsellors
  • Specialist Nurses

The conditions we treat are extensive, including but not limited to:

  • Anxiety Disorders
  • Mood Disorders
  • Eating Disorders
  • Impulse Control and Addiction Disorders
  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Psychotic Disorders
  • Personality Disorders
  • Stress Response Syndromes
  • Somatic Symptom Disorders

Addiction often coexists with mental health conditions—an interplay where both can exacerbate the other. For example, use of central nervous system depressants like alcohol can induce depressive symptoms, creating a cyclical challenge.

Addressing such intertwined conditions necessitates comprehensive treatment, often involving dual diagnosis to tackle issues such as alcohol and drug dependencies, as well as varying addictive behaviours.

For individuals without medical aid, the cost of a three-week therapeutic stay is approximately R 63,000. Immediate assessments are available.
