Are There Any Rehab Centres in Pretoria?
Drug abuse in Pretoria has increased to alarming levels over the last decade, and unfortunately, there is a definite shortage of services in the city to help addicts to find recovery. The police and other governmental authorities are inundated with drug-related cases and drug-trafficking rings. One of the biggest drug problems that Pretoria is being faced with right now, is the dramatic surge in the use of a drug known as “nyaope.” Nyaope is a cocktail of various ingredients; the primary active ingredient being low-grade heroin, which is cut with various other substances such as methamphetamine to bulk up the weight and price of the product. Media reports trace its origin to the Soshanguve and Mamelodi townships in Pretoria, in the early 2000’s . Other commonly used drugs in Pretoria include heroin and crack cocaine (or what is also known as the rock drug).
Crossroads Recovery Centres is based in Pretoria and Johannesburg. These rehab facilities are run by teams of trained professionals which include doctors, nurses, consulting mental health professionals and counsellors. Crossroads Recovery Centres are not just treatment centres for drugs and alcohol. Their teams are ready and equipped to deal with a range of other addictions include gambling addiction, sex addiction and food addiction. The methods for treating these various addictions is fundamentally the same although the content of each program may differ slightly to ensure that addicts are informed about their disease and equipped with the tools that will benefit them in their unique set of circumstances.
The Pretoria Recovery Centre is situated on a two-hectare property in Rietvalleirand. The rehab’s residence is surrounded by lush gardens and designed to provide a tranquil place of refuge for addicts who are entering recovery.
