About our Joburg Addiction Halfway House Edenvale

Hope House Jo’burg Recovery Centre is Halfway House that was established for people that are recovering from substance abuse, for their personal restoration and integration into society.

Our Mission & Vision

A Halfway House that understands the road to full recovery

Most people are under the impression that once a client had been to a rehabilitation centre for treatment, the person should be cured from the disease of addiction. For any person that have decided and embarked on the journey, out of life’s hurts, hang-ups and destructive behaviour (addiction), onto the road of self-discovery, peace, restoration, serenity and wholeness (recovery), would know that it is not so and that it is a lifelong process.

Getting Help Dealing with Dilemmas

The dilemma we are faced with as addicts, is that our lives are unmanageable due to the abuse of substances, and our destructive behaviours, but after sobering up in a treatment facility we are then still faced with the unmanageability in the wake of our actions, simply because we do not know who we are and how to live and enjoy life as a sober person. This often leads us to being misunderstood and feeling rejected by our loved ones and support structure, and places unnecessary strain on ourselves and our loved ones.

A Home away from Home

Hope House Joburg Recovery Centre offers a safe and holistic environment (a home away from home) where you can embark on your journey of self-discovery, restoration and integration into society, as you come to terms with the past and deal with the impact that addiction had on you and your loved ones with fellow residents, volunteers (facilitators) and the staff of Hope House Jo’burg Recovery Centre.

Your next steps to recovery

The programme we use is based on personal development, the 5 pillars of recovery (Higher power/Sponsor/Meetings/Step-work/Service) derived from the standard universal 12-step programme, Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), Celebrate Recovery Africa (CRA), Narcotics Anonymous (NA) as well as one-on-one sessions, educational /therapeutic/spiritual groups, life skills, family sessions and church services.
