World Leading Program

Dealing with mental health, depression, anxiety and self-medication successfully.



Unlike any other recovery and wellness centre in the world!


Why come for treatment at The Health Retreat Recovery Program?

We create a personal treatment plan for each person. No two people are the same. This includes: individual therapy, educational workshops, meditation, yoga and exercise, diet, mindfulness, naturopathy, massage, upgrades to thinking and the finest stress management program in Australia, possibly the world.

We do not do group therapy.

We create an intimate environment, which ensures that more attention is given to each person. Our programs are well balanced with a complation of nurturing, relaxation and intense therapy.

We have a team of highly experienced experts with many years of experience in mental health treatment (over 150 years) including a brilliant psychologist and provisional psychologist to compliment a truly fantastic team.

At The Health Retreat we specialise in treating stress, depression, anxiety as well as the self-medication that may be associated with it such as drugs, alcohol, self harm or eating issues.

The focus of our programs is to change the neural pathways to a new way of thinking and a new way of coping with life. The program is designed around a psychoeducational approach to change, providing the foundation of the biology of change and a good dose of commonsense.

Our job at The Health Retreat Recovery Centre is to start the process of physical, emotional and mental recovery, providing our clients with excellent care, dignity and treatment based on empathy and understanding.

Priority Admissions. In most cases 24-48 hours.

We offer therapy for the families of our clients as well, we understand that addiction and mental health issues effect the whole family.

We look forward to meeting you soon…

May I say we have a very happy boy, full of conversation and praising your Company and the experience he stated as “one of the best things he has ever done thus far in his life.” He expressed the inner tranquillity and understanding he has achieved by undertaking your programme along with supplying him with the tools and comprehension of what he needs to do in the future to achieve a fulfilling life. I cannot thank you enough.

As parents we can only say, based on the result thus far, this has been a gruelling experience, however; the decision to send our son to you was the best possibly decision we could have made. Actually, the other night on the Four Corners programme they reviewed some of the Drug Rehab places, namely that of …(*removed, as we did not want to name another rehab) Organisation. I must say it was frightening to see what some of these companies are doing to desperate people in the name of profit. I can only thank God that we were fortunate to select you and honestly, keep those reviews coming because that is what cemented our decision in an otherwise confusing, minefield of choices.

Thank you all for giving us back our son.


Why The Health Retreat Programs?

Programs from 8 days to six weeks and longer if required, depending on severity of the issues you are facing, time and budget.

Of course the more time you give me the better as all of our program are far superior to any medical or natural model out there.

Once a date and program is confirmed Clint will book any flights and transfers, organise the pre-admission confirmation call, and send a list of what to bring with you.

We want this process to be as easy as possible for you or a loved one.

It’s that simple to start the road to recovery.

We have solution based programs with a much broader and experienced skill set than any other program.

We have private accommodation, great food (organic where possible) and a solution based program where we work to your needs. There are no hidden costs.

Airfares and transfers are included if required.

The test I ask myself every day is: If one of my children or partner had a issue with depression, anxiety or self-medication would I send them to this program, even if money was not the issue.

The answer is a resounding YES.

Please contact me now to see how I can help.

Warm Regards,

The Founder
The Health Retreat Group








A Retreat Where Real Change Happens

We are proud to display our staff

You need to be assured that the professionals delivering you or a loved ones program are the very best. Our staff are what sets us apart.

Click here to meet the team.


We specialise in:

  • Drug and alcohol rehabilitation educational programs
  • Stress management programs
  • Detox education programs
  • Depression rehabilitation education programs
  • Anxiety rehabilitation education programs
  • Insomnia education programs
  • Youth education programs where parents or the whole family can get the help they need
  • Weight loss education programs

Components of our program:

  • Evidence-based therapies conducted by fully qualified psychologists and provisional psychologist.
  • Journey Therapy. Developed originally by American author Brandon Bays similar to time line therapy but different in that the focus is not only to identify your patterns of behaviour and their origins, but to change the pattern then and there, backed by Inner Journey therapy.
  • It is underpinned by Mindfulness Training which has existed for millennia but has only been explained scientifically the last twenty years. “One has to try to develop one’s inner feelings, which can be done simply by training one’s mind.”
  • A highly nutritious organic diet to give the body the essential components it needs to fuel the mechanics of detoxification. Unlike other retreats, the meals are hearty, taste and look wonderful, and you will never feel hungry. This is combined with gentle exercise and massage to assist the body to remove toxins.
  • Of course The Health Retreat has the X factor. The Health Retreat staff are the most finest and experienced natural healing team in the country. The General manager Carol has made many submissions in regard to mental health to Senate Committees and has many years’ experience dealing with, and achieving amazing positive results for clients with her team of Professionals.



The Health Retreat Success Stories

Hi Francis
My daughter stayed at your retreat for four weeks last July.
I wanted you to know that she has progressed well since then. She has not relapsed and further to that she has dropped away from various other associated addictions such as cigarettes and weed and rarely drinks alcohol.
She is now in a happy relationship with a forward outlook.
That break within your beautiful setting plus your people and the program was very appropriate and timely for her.
Within our family, we are all very grateful for the results, the availability and quality of your facility and the way the staff approached these challenging circumstances.
As to be expected we are very good advocates for the retreat whenever we can.

All the best to you all and thank you again!

Steve w.



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 its 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.



This wonderful young woman had a stroke because of her self medication, she was wheel chair 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.
