Drug Rehabilitation Centres

Bethesda Recovery, one of the leading Drug Rehabilitation Centres in South Africa which aims at enabling patients to cease their substance abuse patterns in order to avoid all of the harmful physical, psychological, social, legal and financial consequences that come with it. Holistic approaches are most effective.

What is substance abuse?

Substance abuse is the consistent patterned use of a particular substance which causes harm to the user themselves and/or others such as family and friends. These substances are most often not used for medical reasons although in some cases the abuse can begin in this manner.

Substances most associated with substance abuse include alcohol, amphetamines (meth/tik), barbiturates (sedative and sleeping pills), cocaine, methaqualone (mandrax) and opioids (painkillers such as morphine).

Abuse of these substances mostly leads to physical, psychological and social harm. Not only this, but substance abusers are more likely to face criminal penalty as they can be involved in further criminal activity whilst under the influence of the particular substance.

Substance abuse in South Africa

The current socio-economic transitional state of South Africa has allowed substance abuse to flourish. There has been a swift decline in cultural and family values as well as high rates of unemployment which have particularly contributed to substance abuse. This is particularly true amongst youngsters seeking an outlet or escape. Cheap “hybrid” drugs such as whoonga/nyaope (mixture of marijuana, heroin and antiretrovirals) have only added fuel to the fire. Here are a few scary statistics.

  • Substance abuse in South Africa is twice the world norm
  • 15% of South Africa’s population has a substance abuse problem
  • Nationally, 60% of crimes are drug related

The increased number of South African drug mules that have made international news recently has highlighted this drug problem.
