We offer a different approach to treatment; one that focuses on healing psychological pain of past trauma-experiences.

Working with leading specialists both locally and internationally, we have taken the best practice principles of personal psychological care and recovery and applied them to a continuum of care that is tailored to fit your unique life circumstances.

Our vision is to be the most advanced personal growth academy in the world. Enabling people to break free self-inhibiting thoughts and behaviours and lead full lives.

Depression, anxiety, stress, alcohol addiction, drug addiciton and other “mental health” conditions are merely symptoms of other problems often created by past trauma.

All we do is we provide an evidence-based platform and space for individuals to find their feet, establish their recovery goals, work through past trauma and move forward in confidence and finally true versions of themselves.

Online Outpatient Treatment

Exclusive private inpatient addiction, depression, stress, anxiety recovery programmes. These programmes facilitate the personal growth process for each patient. Designed around a person which effectively reduces the barriers that prevent most people from receiving their most effective treatment.

Outpatient Treatment

Outpatients are able to resume their day-to-day life and work and roles. Yet may still attend individual or group therapy sessions at the centre or online during the week, and may still meet with their counsellors who provide further support to manage any residual issues.

After Care Services

People that have completed a residential treatment programme with Recovery Direct, recieve full access to aftercare and outpatient programmes. The recovery and aftercare services coexist and complement the continuum of care that is unique to Recovery Direct.

Our approach focuses on individuals.

Post-traumatic stress, relationships, bipolar disorders, chronic pain, behavioural disorders, anxiety, depression, abuse or any number underlying issues which fuel addictive habits in patients. We spend the time to unravel what went wrong so we can find the solution that works best for you.

Multi-Modal Treatment For You

Comprehensive ongoing assessments enable our therapeutic teams to develop an optimised treatment strategy for the patient. This treatment strategy will reflect your specific needs as an individual. Each patient’s programme adapts to their evolving requirements and follows them out of the residential recovery programmes and back into their day to day lives.

Absolute Discretion and Patient Confidentiality

Every possible measure to respect client privacy is upheld at Recovery Direct. Staff are trained to be sensitive to record-keeping procedures and observing due caution when dealing with sensitive information. The retreat is placed in a secluded area away from distractions and the general public. All information between team members and staff are managed in a discreet, highly confidential manner.

Working With Specialists

Many factors play a role in the sustainable rehabilitation process of patients.

  • Life Circumstances
  • Career/Family Commitments
  • Financial Considerations

  • Medical professionals specialising in addiction treatment and withdrawal
