Houghton House, Providing a Second Chance at Life

Regarded as the top private rehabilitation centre in Johannesburg.
We offer the full spectrum of treatment. For all addictive disorders and associated problems.

The addiction recovery programmes begin with a comprehensive assessment of the patientโ€™s needs. Therefore we offer short- and long-term residential treatment, outpatient services, ongoing aftercare, relapse prevention. As well as halfway house sober living options.

To sum up we operate on the belief that alcoholism/addiction are 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.

Firstly before our patients embark on any treatment programme, they undergo a comprehensive professional assessment by one of our experienced clinical team. In order that their recommended recovery programme meets the patientโ€™s requirements. Moreover, the assessment process is designed to ascertain their current and past substance use history, family support, psychiatric, psychological, and in addition their motivational status.
