Based on a proven model

The Sydney Retreat is a program based entirely on the highly successful 12-step facilitated recovery program run by The Retreat in Minneapolis, USA.

The Retreat in Minneapolis has been operational for 20 years, and its success rate far exceeds that of any other public or private alcohol and drug rehabilitation program anywhere in the world.

High rates of sobriety

After attending The Retreat, 59% of people are still sober after 12 months which far exceeds the low recovery rates attributed to other rehabilitation centres that apply different treatments.

“When there’s that much smoke …”

Dr Stephen Jurd is an addiction psychiatrist, advocate and leading authority on alcohol and drug addiction treatment in Australia.

The Sydney Retreat is an immersive 28-day residential recovery program. We take pride in being the best residential treatment centre in Australia, and we’re committed to changing your life and that of one of your loved ones.

They are supported by independent, highest-quality research.

Independent researchers also endorse the efficacy and success of residential twelve-step facilitated recovery compared to other forms of treatment. Cochrane is an unaffiliated, international network of researchers that perform systematic reviews of medical evidence to improve health outcomes and healthcare practices worldwide.

A newly released Cochrane Review into Twelve Step Facilitated recovery (TSF) found “high certainty evidence” that TSF programs that were designed to increase participation in Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) can lead to higher rates of continuous abstinence over months and years compared to other treatments.
