Harmony Addictions Clinic Offers Hope To Hundreds Of South Africans
Cape Town, Western Cape (MMD Newswire) January 3, 2013 -- No South African is likely to deny that the abuse of drugs and alcohol has become a major threat to our society and that it is now an acute problem that will need to be addressed with the utmost urgency. Improved efforts at prevention have certainly resulted in far greater vigilance on the nation's borders and the interception of, often, huge consignments of narcotic substances. However, until this influx can be halted entirely or at least slowed to a trickle, the best hope for the hapless victims of addictions will continue to be found in the rehabilitative efforts of institutions such as the Harmony Group Clinic.

Recent years have seen a welcome turnaround in the way that most specialists and laypeople alike now regard those caught up in the abuse of chemical substances. As a confirmed proponent of the more modern belief; that such conditions should, be viewed and treated as a disease and not as an unfortunate character defect, this Western Cape establishment has more than justified its stance with a track record of continuing successes.

A brief word with a spokesperson for the group served to confirm that much of this success has also to be attributed to the fact that it's patients are treated on a holistic basis that extends their therapy well beyond the, albeit, extremely vital, but purely physical needs such as detoxification. He added, "The move to a more holistic approach is designed to ensure that the emotional and spiritual needs of the patient are also catered for.

By not addressing the visible, physical symptoms alone but also taking steps to alleviate some of the less tangible consequences and the causes, patients at the Harmony Addictions Clinic are effectively empowered in their quest to regain confidence, self-esteem, motivation and the ability to interact socially with their families and peers".

This, however, is not an overnight miracle cure as a second spokesperson was careful to point out, stating that, "Our treatment is typically conducted over a 28-day period during which patients remain in residence. This is just one part of an ongoing service that we offer as the sole group of treatment centres anywhere in South Africa that is able to offer a full continuum of care".

This is a programme that was first published in 1939 and, with only a few modifications, has proven to be the most effective weapon of its authors, the AA, in their fight against alcoholism. While this is designed to address all of the patient's psychological needs, the modern medical approach that we offer as a licensed detox facility and with the aid of our certified trauma experts is focussed on his or her physical well-being."

Harmony Addictions Clinic is definitely a leader in the rehabilitation scene with years of experience and enough high sought public figures and government organisations backing them up. They are also registered and a legal treatment centre.
