Rehab in JHB

The initial focus of our residential programme is safe detoxification and stabilisation. We use a range of evidence-based, clinically proven practices accompanied by close medical supervision. Throughout the process, every client is treated with compassion, dignity, and respect.
We also focus on treatment for dual-diagnosis clients. Many people who come to Houghton House seeking treatment for their drug or alcohol addiction may also struggle with mental health issues such as depression, eating disorders, grief or anxiety. This combination of addiction along with a mental health issue is called a co-occurring disorder and is actually very common, which is why it is crucial to take a holistic approach when treating these disorders.
During this phase, we aim to equip them with the skills and resources they need to establish a firm foundation in recovery and to provide them with the tools to live a more manageable and productive life.

Our twelve step based -based addiction treatment is delivered by our clinical team of professional and expert therapists, doctors, psychiatrists, and nurses. Our team has the experience and education required to effectively treat addiction, they are also compassionate and understand the complexity and challenges associated with addiction.

The Inpatient Residential Programme includes:

  • a balanced yet intensive programme of therapeutic and recreational activities to assist clients to alter their lifestyles, attitudes and behaviours in a positive and meaningful way
  • a daily programme of exercise, group therapy, lectures and written assignments
  • individual and family counselling
  • an introduction to Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous, helping to build a strong and inclusive culture of recovery within the patient community.
