About Us

The Living House is Cape Town's oldest Sober Living House now taking on the form of a Re - Integration Facility. We provide unprecedented, 24 Hour support for our Residents which includes a live- in staff member. What sets us apart is that, at The Living House, we view Recovery from a multi-dimensional and sustainable perspective. We understand that staying clean and sober is the real challenge and we support clients in creating lives where it is easier to do so. As such, we believe that Recovery should be tailored to suit each unique individual – a ‘one size does not fit all’ approach. Our approach incorporates the basic principles of the 12 Step journey.

The Living House provides a safe, contained environment that is so necessary to sustained Recovery. It is a space where individuals can engage the next phase of their journey – the creation of a Recovery lifestyle. We endeavour to inspire the connection and growth that comes with living in a sober, caring, close-knit community.

Situated in leafy Claremont in the hub of the Recovery community of Cape Town’s Southern Suburbs, The Living House is conveniently situated to close to Palmyra Junction and Cavendish Centre as well as being within walking distance to public transport. For those who enjoy a safe walk or run in the park, or a picnic outdoors, we are close to Keurboom Park, which is lush with trees and has a panoramic view of the mountain range. Sport lovers can walk to the Newlands Rugby Stadium and Cricket Grounds. We are across the way from a range of public transport options, making our positioning near perfect.
Having been admitted after a minimum of three weeks’ clean time, residents are encouraged to become productive by studying, volunteering or engaging in gainful employment. This, combined with peace and calm, sets the stage for residents to restart their lives free from active drug, alcohol and process addictions.

The Living House has earned a great reputation with people both locally and abroad. People have traveled to Cape Town to benefit from our sober living facility, so that they can consolidate their new skills, regain their confidence and thrive in their Recovery as they reintegrate into society.
