Private, affordable in-patient treatment for drug and alcohol dependence.


Phoenix House provides residential in-patient programmes of 3, 4, 6 and 8 weeks which are designed to develop a healing, confidential, professional and safe environment for people seeking recovery. Our premises (a 1933 historical building) have recently been upgraded and refurbished. We offer a pleasant, comfortable yet structured, disciplined and therapeutic environment.

  Our approach is largely based on the 12 Step  programme of recovery, and  a   number of our staff members are clean and sober ex-addicts and alcoholics. Our professional counsellors are able to connect with patients     because they  have  walked a similar path,  and are therefore   able to understand    the  complexities of addiction.   Similarly,  patients are able to relate to counsellors       and become open and willing to engage in the process of recovery.

 This is achieved through participation in groups and one-on-one sessions with  our addiction counsellors and social workers, as well as educational groups and aftercare sessions. Post-discharge, patients are strongly encouraged to attend 12 Step Programme meetings such as Narcotics Anonymous (NA) and Alcoholics Anonymous (AA).

We have 24/7 nursing staff and admissions, and are contracted into most medical aid schemes. Please contact us for further information – 011 673 0400, or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

Walking With Winners Recovery Centre

Walking With Winners Recovery Centre he 

Walking With Winners Recovery Centre is a faith-based, self-help therapeutic facility, registered with the Department of Social Development. At Walking With Winners Recovery Centre, we believe recovery is a choice. When a person is motivated to make correct choices, as opposed to being forced, the correct decision is often the first decision and correct decisions and choices are what recovery from drug addiction and alcoholism is all about.

We whole-heartedly believe that you can change your life, through the Power of the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Walking With Winners Primary treatment facility is a restricted environment where addicted persons are removed from society, while being treated for drug or alcohol abuse. They will benefit from an infra-red sauna detox process when they are admitted to the program. The residents are involved in a daily program called “Physical Therapy” which includes garden work, kitchen work, house cleaning, keeping the rooms clean, general maintenance and upkeep of the facility and grounds. We follow a Faith Based Recovery program (Celebrate Recovery) and we refuse to compromise on our standards and beliefs.

We are not here to participate, we are here to dominate! The enemy has already been defeated! It is time to take action. No more excuses. Become a Man of Action. Become a Man of your word. Become a Man of God.

You don’t have to be defined by the mistakes of your past. You have a choice. Choose life, and life more abundantly.

If you are Family members or a friend of someone who is either abusing drugs/alcohol or is already addicted or is exhibiting any other form of addictive behaviour that is making their life & yours unmanageable. You are probably able to see the chaos that this abuse is causing in their life and they can't - you’re at the “desperate wondering” stage as to what you can do to help, right?

The largest obstacle that you have to overcome is that the abuser believes that this is EVERYONE ELSE'S problem, or you're blowing things out of proportion and they are often of the opinion that "everything is under control". The person who has the problem rarely sees it as a problem due to them standing in their own way.  Realisation and objectivity no longer exists.

People who are addicted to drugs/alcohol or any other self-destructive behaviour DON’T believe they have a problem, and if there is a problem, it’s due to relationships, circumstances and demographics. This is important to remember when trying to help a friend or loved one who is in the cunning, baffling and powerful clutch of addiction. Sharing with the person that you are concerned for their health and well being isn’t going to alter or change the addictive behavior. It’s akin to me trying to tell the Cheetah not to chase the Gazelle in the wild. The Cheetah’s brain tells him to chase the Gazelle.

If you have an emotional attachment and history with that person and you are too close and are unable to see the entire situation from beginning to end. You may react emotionally without objectivity and perceive the Interventionist as being too harsh, or moving too quickly, or too inexperienced or even too unfeeling.

Situations vary, a person might come to the stark realisation that their drug/alcohol/use or addictive behaviour needs to stop and in some cases there is success. Unfortunately the majority of people cannot just stop their addictive behaviour, using/drinking, so they need help. If you are concerned about a loved one, it’s difficult for you to be an objective messenger, because..... you are too close.

The Addict/Alcoholic's situation is not going to improve, because addiction/alcoholism has taken over your loved one’s life and does not want your Addict/Alcoholic to have the opportunity at recovery/sobriety through  treatment. It’s like having a monkey on their back that controls and directs their life. The monkey isn’t going to let them go without a fight!
