The Health Retreat
Recovery starts the moment you contact us, and support never ends. I love the contact we have long-term with clients and see it as essential to long-term recovery.
1. Why is Stress management so important?
It has become normal to re act/act to stress and life a certain way. The stress management component changes how we react to life, and more importantly the tools to deal with the future.
If we suffer from depression, anxiety, self-medication, it means we can manage those conditions far better than we ever believed possible.
The stress management also prepares us for life after the program, that with long term support is the key.
2. Why is dealing with triggers so important?
Our reaction/response to these triggers lead to the current coping mechanism, which may not be correct. We have to let go of the triggers, or at the very least respond to them in an upgraded manner. This part of the program is crucial to long-term recovery. We have to let go of the core issues behind the behaviours.
3. Why do we use Psychologists and Natural Therapies?
It is simple, benefits can be achieved from both types of modalities. We understand the challenges are so severe and debilitating, we need the finest most experienced people for your recovery.
4. Why do we have naturopaths?
Our body has been deprived and in many cases hurt by our current behaviours. Our Naturopath is highly qualified after completing 7 years in Shanghai studying and practising Chinese medicine, Bio-balance, Blood analysis.
The bottom line is we need to know how your body has been affected and more importantly what to do about it going forward.
5. What are Real Life Therapies
Exclusive to The Health retreat. These therapies are designed for preparation for life after the program. Real Tools for Real situations going forward.
6. Assisted detox as required.
We work with your doctor as they know your History, to make sure your detox is a very safe process. It is a much softer process for you to go through.
Seeing people return with their loved ones for a visit one, two and in Charlie’s case 6 years later, is the most satisfying feeling…
You have tried everything.
Nothing has worked.
Don’t put recovery off another day.

Here is another person who believed Francis when he told her it’s not whether you fall over, but its whether you get up.
I just spent two months in a rehab in Thailand. There were over 85 people there and it was huge.
It was all about NA 12 step, I might as well have stayed home and gone to NA meetings.
I relapsed the first week back into Australia, actually hours after I returned. I really felt I had failed.
Didn’t want to come to the Health retreat, after all I had failed after two months in Thailand, but within a day, I could see it was smaller, more qualified help, and a real caring. In a month they did 110 hours of work on me, with a psychologist trained in medical and natural therapies, and amazing natural therapists who broke my addiction.
I felt like I was nurtured, valued and now I am well on my way to long-term recovery. Yep they call me just to say Hi, but I know it’s to make sure I have support and more importantly know I have support.
Carol, Salima, Natalie, Richard you are the best.
AND yes Francis thank you so making me laugh when I was so sad when I arrived, it helped so much to settle in.
I would recommend the Health retreat to anyone who has issues, tried elsewhere like me, and need the best place.
You won’t regret it.
My team makes sure the rooms and cabins are clean and the clients feel very comfortable in their accommodation, this ensures they can concentrate on their program.
This wonderful young woman had a stroke because of her self-medication, she was wheelchair bound only days before she arrived. Yes it took 6 weeks, and a lot of commitment from her, and the amazing skills of the staff at the retreat.
I am sure you will agree by her photo, her recovery is breathtaking.
