Helderberg Omgee was established in 2010 by a concerned group of community members representing a broad spectrum of society. Being a community driven establishment we are also a registered Non Profit Organnization. We are alarmed at the social and moral decay in the Helderberg basin and feel ourselves compelled to utilize our expertise and extensive professional networks to make a difference in peoples lives.

Our aim in Helderberg Omgee Halfway House is to provide a supportive structured environment in which residents in early recovery from addiction can learn to apply the principles of the E.A.G.L.E. program and practice a healthy sober way a life. Having the support and structure of the halfway house allows recovering addicts to focus on recovery and prevents them from making unhealthy, risky and dangerous decisions. They learn life skills and become accountable for their behaviour and actions, taking responsibility for their actions.

We encourage our clients to heal, live healthy responsible productive lives and discover who they truly are. This process is best started in a safe and managed environment.

The client will be held accountable for their recovery and are expected to give random urine tests at the request of the house Manager and/or Staff.

We expect the residents to live by the E.A.G.L.E. program. Therapy is highly recommended, Outpatient, individual counselling, are on offer at an additional cost.
