A rehabilitation center in Cape Town offering world-class treatment

Committed to comprehensive care in addiction and mental health

Welcome To Anker Huis

Congratulations. You have taken the first step by exploring the different options for a suitable treatment centre that will help you or your loved one overcome addiction and, more importantly, the underlying issues that lead to addictive behaviour.

Instead of asking the common question, “Why are you addicted?”, we instead focus on asking our clients, “Why are you in pain?”’

This question, though difficult, is crucial in understanding the root cause of addiction. Only then can the addiction be understood and, ultimately, treated.

This approach is revolutionary compared to many rehab centres worldwide that only aim to solve substance abuse or behavioural problems on their own.

Our core belief is that every client is unique with their own arsenal of life experiences and individual needs. Therefore, we treat our clients with the utmost respect.

Clients should never be punished for seeking help; they should be rewarded for their efforts and treated as adults who unfortunately made some incorrect choices and require love and guidance to let go of the past. They should look forward to a life free from the dark and vicious circle of addiction and we are here to guide them through the entire, life-affirming process.

At Anker Huis, we offer an unparalleled staff-to-client ratio. We walk along with you in rediscovering a life worth living. No judgements, no assumptions. You are here to become whole again, and we are here to support you in this process.

Let our experienced and passionate multi-disciplinary therapeutic team assist you and take you by the hand on this intensive journey towards recovery. You are worth it!

Our Programmes

We are committed to comprehensive care in addiction and mental health

Residential Programme

30 days - 3 month

We employ a flexible approach in our residential addiction treatment, placing the individual and their specific needs and capacities at the center of the individual treatment plan. Our minimum programme duration is 30 days.

We are committed to helping our clients achieve meaningful recovery in order to reintegrate into a happy and healthy lifestyle that is sustainable in the long run.  This sustainable foundation must be laid for successful ongoing rehabilitation and recovery, with reliable relapse prevention and accountability.

Quite often the addict will feel isolated, trapped by their addiction and unable to communicate with their family and friends. While they may feel isolated and separate from others, the consequences of their addiction are not.

What We Treat

We focus on the underlying issues at the root of the problem. These could take the form of: anxiety disorders; ADHD; insecurities; trauma; depression; or bipolar disorders.

It can be any of the above that cause the client to resort to medicating themselves over the years by turning to drugs, alcohol, food, gambling, sex, gaming, or other harmful avenues to temporarily escape from reality, thus creating their own harmful coping mechanism.

What our patients think about us

“My experience here at Anker House was great. After a long period of drugs and alcohol, it was time to get my life back together again. Was it not for Anker house, having to Pick up the pieces of my life was far beyond reach. I came here distraught, an emotional wreck beyond repair….at least that is what I thought.

Today I sit here, with a big smile, and back raised straight, and legs standing strong. I have had an emotional rollercoaster of a journey here, but it was well worth it. The staff has proven to be more than just a great help but also on all moral and emotional levels. I am glad to have finally, after so many years of screaming for help I had a group of people who wholeheartedly grabbed the bull by the horns and set my life back in motion.

Thank you to all of those who helped me and good luck to those who will arrive…

This is a life given back”.
