Alex Hamlyn one of the Directors of Houghton House

My name is Alex Hamlyn one of the Directors of Houghton House and I am a recovering drug addict.
I used various substances for 17 years and I have now been clean for 29 years this October 2023.
This is my story…

I started using drugs at the age of 13 and I used to a greater or lesser extent till the age of 30
There didn’t seem to be a specific reason or anything going on in my life that drew me towards drugs. I came from a reasonably functional family.

Houghton House, Providing a Second Chance at Life

Our experts are renowned for their knowledge and dedication, and have helped many addicts live a life free from addiction. From alcohol to drugs, our center offers a full spectrum of treatment to help you or your loved one get back on track.

The addiction recovery programmes begin with a comprehensive assessment of the patient’s needs.
Therefore we offer short and long-term residential treatment, outpatient services, ongoing aftercare, and relapse prevention as well as halfway house sober living options.
To sum up we operate on the belief that alcoholism/addiction is a recognised and diagnosable disease. That is to say, it is not a moral failing. Consequently, we strive to create an environment where our patients feel respected and most importantly as a result their dignity can be restored.

The Treatment Process

Comprehensive assessment

Before our patients embark on a drug or alcohol treatment programme. As part of the assessment process, we ensure all our patients undergo a comprehensive evaluation with one of our experienced clinicians. This way, they can decide on a recovery programme that will meet their individual needs. We also examine depression and other psychiatric issues, substance abuse history, family and social support networks, and motivational status to provide the best care possible. More on Assessments >>

Primary Care

Our 30-day programme at our Joburg rehab. The residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation programme provides a solid foundation for those who require medical detoxification. In addition to medical staff, we have psychologists, therapists, social workers, and counselors on staff. All departments work together each day to help our patients focus on the next step in their recovery journey: making decisions about their lives after rehab. More on our Primary Care >>

Secondary Care

General Addiction Programme is our extended inpatient care programme for individuals who have completed the detox and a primary care programme. It’s geared specifically towards individuals suffering from drug or alcohol addiction. It runs on a month-to-month basis, with the suggestion of three months as an ideal recovery period for substance abuse or similar addiction. More on Secondary Care Facilities >>

Outpatient Services

First Step Outpatient Programme has been designed for individuals who are suffering from Substance Use Disorders. When financial responsibilities, legal issues, work obligations, and/or family situations make it impractical for them to attend an inpatient programme. More on our Outpatient Services >>
