Not all Australian mental health retreats and addiction recovery programs are created equal.
Choosing to put your emotional wellbeing and physical health first can be challenging. Asking for help is often an alien concept to many of the people we see at Retreat South. We understand why this may be the case.
There is a misinformation about mental health, addiction, trauma and what it’s like to live with an invisible disability or chronic illness in our society. Retreat South was created to break down the barriers to providing real help and provide a safe haven.
How we approach our treatments
Treating the symptoms doesn’t alleviate the cause. That’s why Retreat South takes the time to get to know you as an individual and tailor a program to suit you. We work with you across a variety of different and diverse treatment methods. We offer counselling, mindfulness, exercise, diet, art therapy and creative pursuits in tandem.
Each of our techniques is applied to the following core focuses:
Addiction and detoxification
Retreat South’s addiction and detoxification is based on treating the whole body, mind and spirit. We offer short and long stay programs that deal with the underlying causes of your addictions to provide long-lasting detoxification and cycle breaking properties.
Work related stress
More Australians are facing workplace related stress than ever before. With long hours, higher levels of responsibility, workplace bullying and increased job insecurity, many people are struggling to find a true balance between the professional and the personal.
Trauma and PTSD
There is more to dealing with a tragic event or a high stress situation than simply getting through it. The lingering effects of childhood abuse, personal tragedy, surviving violent relationships or violent crimes, experiencing war as a soldier or as a refugee can leave scars.
Chronic illness & invisible disability
Living with an illness long term is draining on our emotional reserves. Even if you are on the road to recovery, dealing with the physical and emotional toll disease and illness has taken on your life needs the right kind of support.
Mental health and wellbeing
45% of Australians will experience a mental health issue in their lifetime. Recovery from anxiety, depression and other mental health challenges doesn’t have to be a solo journey. At Retreat South, we can help you create a positive approach to mental health recovery.
Still haven’t found something to suit? We’ve helped with post-hospital care and rehabilitation, helped people on the Autism spectrum, developed strategies to disrupt obsessive compulsive tendencies and more.
