About Anker Huis
Anker Huis is a boutique residential facility in beautiful Cape Town, South Africa specializing in the treatment of substance use, co-occurring mental health conditions, and process addictions. Their revolutionary approach to treatment aims at healing the root cause of addiction with compassion, hospitality, and understanding. Instead of asking the common question, “Why are you addicted?" Anker Huis focuses on asking their clients, "Why are you in pain?" This question, though difficult, is crucial in understanding the root cause of addiction. Only then can addiction be understood and, ultimately, treated.
While immersed in the program, clients will engage in 1-on-1 counseling using cognitive behavioral methods as well as group therapy, mindfulness training, trauma-specific therapy, and the Minnesota Model when needed. In addition to therapy, Anker Huis and its prime location offers some of the most unique activity outings for their clients. Weekly outings and activities can include the Cheetah Outreach program, Table Mountain Cable Car, sandboarding, stand up paddle boarding, Robben Island visits, and more.
The Anker Huis location in Constantia is known for its natural beauty and nearby world renowned beaches. The magnificent surroundings and world-class accommodations are truly awe inspiring. The luxury estate grounds enable clients to fully embrace the recovery lifestyle in a relaxed, natural environment. Lush greenery and thoughtfully designed gardens adorn the estate along with a swimming pool, perfect for exercise or soaking in the sun. Mens and women's accommodations are located in separate buildings on the property, and clients will enjoy private or semi-private bedrooms. Georgian design is seen throughout the home with bespoke furniture and up-scale decor. The home comes equipped with spacious, comfortable lounge areas, perfect for relaxing in, and a billiards room for when clients wish to socialize. Gourmet meals are prepared by in-house chefs, and they can accommodate most all dietary restrictions one may have.
With an awe inspiring location combined with a compassionate, holistic approach, Anker Huis is truly a one-of-a-kind treatment program.
Anker Huis uses evidence-based and cognitive treatment modalities in their programs, molding them around the individual needs, situations, and desires of each client. This comprehensive approach gets to the root cause of addiction and treats it accordingly. Clients at Anker Huis can depend on their entire multi-disciplinary team to deliver the most relevant and proven care possible.
Clients at Anker Huis have the flexibility to receive the most relevant care for them and their schedule, which may compute to a shorter or longer residential stay. Anker Huis offers a minimum stay of 30 days, with at least three months being their recommended residential stay. During residential treatment, men and women are housed separately for comfort and ease.
Anker Huis extends their support and care to the families of those struggling with addiction, whether or not they’re a client at Anker Huis. Family support groups meet each Saturday to give family members a community of support, advice, love, and education as their loved one battles addiction.
Clients at Anker Huis will enjoy a private and luxurious stay, complete with chef-prepared meals, double or single rooms, and spacious grounds with a garden and pool. Anker Huis also takes their clients on weekly outings to enjoy more of what South Africa has to offer, and to give a taste of the excitement and joy that lie in sober living.
