Get better faster at The Sydney Retreat

We provide an immersive, supportive, 28-day intensive program modelled on The Retreat USA. Our primary goal is to help our guests understand and practice the power of the 12 Step recovery program in a safe and supportive community environment.

What makes us different?

What makes us different from other drug & alcohol rehabs is our program and our staff. All Sydney Retreat staff have experienced dependency issues and found a path to long-term recovery. This allows guests to recover in a safe and caring environment surrounded by experienced and trained individuals who understand.

Our program is modelled off the highly successful Retreat, USA and represents a non-clinical, mutual-help approach to the problem of alcohol and drug dependency. The 28-day residential program offers a comfortable, supportive and educational setting that is grounded in the principles of 12-step recovery.

The Sydney Retreat opens the door to a new life of sobriety.

Proven & Effective Results

The Sydney Retreat is a program based entirely on the highly successful 12-step facilitated recovery program run by

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.

As one of Sydney’s best private rehabilitation centres, we pay attention to the quality of care, ensuring that behaviour change isn’t just another fancy phrase but a priority deeply rooted in day-to-day activities, teachings, code of conduct, and belief systems.

We recommend a 28-Day Residential Program

As long as you want to fast-track your recovery while minimising the risks of potential relapse, there’s no better way to do so than to choose a residential treatment program. To boost their chances of success, people dependent on alcohol and drugs are often advised to leave their homes and stay in a less distractive environment. Private residential programs, unlike public rehab centres or outpatient treatment programs, allow patients to concentrate on getting their lives back on track and nothing else.

Another benefit to attending a private residential treatment facility is the level of privacy you or your loved one enjoys while focusing on recovery. Breaking bad habits can be challenging and requires extraordinary effort – one that may require getting out of the comfort zone to succeed. However, when patients are placed in a new environment where there’s no judgement, and everyone is focused on achieving similar goals, it becomes easy to push harder, express vulnerability, and even ask for help.

ADDICTION AND THE BRAIN

Every week at The Sydney Retreat, guests attend a discussion with addiction medicine specialist, Dr Stephen Jurd. In his Addiction and the Brain lecture series, Dr Jurd hears one question over and over again – Why can’t I moderate my drinking and drug use like everyone else? The answer pertains to a small and ancient part of our brains known as the reward pathway. And this part of the brain reacts differently among addicts and alcoholics.

Get Better Quicker With Residential Alcohol and Drug Treatment

We offer integrated care programs beyond counselling and abstinence, including physical therapy exercises, meditation and group sessions to ensure that every aspect of addiction is well catered for, resulting in higher chances of mental and emotional recovery.

As one of Sydney’s best private rehabilitation centres, we pay attention to the quality of care, ensuring that behaviour change isn’t just another fancy phrase but a priority deeply rooted in day-to-day activities, teachings, code of conduct, and belief systems.
