Ward 23 has 16 beds for the qualified treatment of patients with mental illness and alcohol problems.
The duration of treatment is 6 weeks as an inpatient followed by 1 year of outpatient therapy (1 hour of group therapy per week).
The condition for admission to the ward is the patient's own willingness to undergo treatment and the goal of permanent abstinence. Admission takes place at fixed six-week appointments. The decision on admission is made after preliminary talks in which it is clarified whether a sufficiently high level of motivation is present and whether regular participation in the subsequent outpatient therapy can be guaranteed.
The age of admission is open from 18 years upwards, whereby the patients must not be physically impaired to such an extent that a high degree of basic nursing care is necessary.
