FAQ

Why are you based in Bali?

Many people who suffer from substance abuse cannot or do not want to receive treatment near where they live, or even in their home country. Travelling away for short-term treatment (28 days or more) is appealing because it allows individuals to put space between them and the environment that stimulated addictive behaviours. The natural spirituality of Bali can seem like a lifeline.

What treatments do you offer?

We specialise in the treatment of alcohol addiction, drug addiction (illegal and prescribed), and dual diagnosis.

Do you have the resources to deliver personalised care?

Our therapeutic community is intentionally remote, exclusive, small and affordable; accommodating only a select number of clients at any one time. It is designed for high levels of personal, customised care. Central to our drug and alcohol treatment program is the understanding that no two people are the same. Your experiences, your triggers, your life goals, your shames, hopes and fears – they all combine to make your treatment plan unique.
