At Houghton House Addiction & Mental Health Treatment Centres there is a strong focus on group therapy. One-on-one therapy is also used weekly.

This combines the expertise of medical and experienced therapeutic professionals necessary when dealing with patients who are substance abusers.

Our Patients and Family are our Success Stories
Family support in addiction is crucial – for us to be the best rehab in Gauteng
Both for the addict and the family members and friends visiting the Alcohol Rehab & Drug Addiction Recovery Rehabilitation centre.
Families and friends of South African addiction sufferers often feel angry, confused, frustrated, and particularly helpless. Family support group meetings go a long way to help alleviate this confusion and worry. The counsellors who work in the family support groups are there to support and help to promote healing and mental health by showing family members how addiction affects individuals, parents and families and what can be done to help. By finding out that other individuals are in a similar situation recovering at a rehab in South Africa, loved ones of drug addicts and those with addiction learn that they can’t always control addiction, but at Houghton House treatment centre they can identify new, healthy ways of coping with their relationship with an addicted person at the best rehab in South Africa.
