Gold Coast Addiction and Treatment Rehab

Have you been struggling with addiction? Perhaps you thought you could control your alcohol, other drugs or gambling, or any other behaviour and now realise that this behaviour is causing you harm and those you love. At the Gold Coast Addiction & Treatment Rehab, we explain that repeated behaviour turns into an addiction and this addiction can end up controlling each area of our life.  Let us take care of you.

Now Is The Time To Act

It is so important to seek help as soon as you become aware that a behaviour has become an addiction that is taking control of your life. If you don’t take action when you become aware of the addiction, it continues to grow and do more harm. Sometimes this harm can cause significant, or even irreversible damage to your health, relationships, work, finances, reputation etc. The earlier you fight back, the easier the recovery process.

Our Gold Coast rehab retreat offers both Live-In SHORT STAY REHAB, as well as DAY TREATMENT. We encourage you to act now and call us for a friendly chat, or email if you prefer or use our contact page.

If you would like to understand the Cycle of Addiction, feel welcome to learn more from our services page.

Taking The First Step

The journey of a mile begins with the first step”… Regardless of what stage you are at in your addiction, our expert staff will speak with you over the phone to help you plan your recovery to meet your needs. You may be looking for more information, or you may be ready to start your treatment. We offer a service for people at various stages of change.

If you would like understand the Stages of Change, feel welcome to learn more from our services page.

Our mission statement is to treat our clients with respect, dignity and compassion.

Create A New Life

Rebuilding our life to recover from addiction, takes time and patience. Especially building new relationships with loved ones, colleagues and friends, or repairing existing ones. We need the support of trained addiction specialists to help us know where to start and build a recovery plan for sustainable recovery. It’s normal to feel overwhelmed which is why we will help you plan your recovery to get your life back on track.

With the help of our treatment team, you can complete your short stay rehab or day treatment program with confidence and the skills you need to live life free from addiction and enjoy all that life has to offer you. We will also provide your loved ones with family support resources to help them work together with you. Please see our family support page for further information.

If you need detox first, (from 5 to 14 days) to withdraw safely from chemicals you have been using, such as alcohol or other drugs, we can arrange this in our private sister detox facility nearby. Then you can complete our either of our treatment programs. We offer both Live-In SHORT STAY REHAB (28 days or beyond), as well as DAY TREATMENT (9:30am – 3:30pm) over 20 days, for people who live local on the Gold Coast and are unable to stay overnight due to work or family commitments. This is explained on our SERVICES PAGE.

Gold Coast Addiction & Treatment Rehab is a private recovery and healing retreat that offers complete discretion and confidentiality with paper only files and no electronic records that can be accessed by any other organisation such as Medicare or private health insurance. Our quality psycho-social education, along with personal counselling, sometimes called individual psychotherapy, will help you understand yourself and others, as well as how to permanently overcome the addiction.

Our Dual Diagnosis Consultant, George Patriki, is a recognised expert in this industry. He is our Director of Clinical Services who spent 7 years addicted to alcohol & other drugs; such as cannabis, speed, ICE, Cocaine and Heroin. He spent 10 years accessing various treatment services before becoming a therapist and has spent the last 27 years helping people with addictions, as well as training Government and Non-Government organisations over the last 17 years. He understands your struggles and this is explained further on our STAFF PAGE.

We also offer a variety of complementary therapies such as massage, acupuncture, personal training or exercise and beach walks to maximise the holistic treatment we offer for your body, mind and spirit. This is explained further on our SERVICES PAGE.

Whether you are thinking about treatment for the first time, or you have relapsed, we are here to help you every step of the way to take back control of your life and rebuild the foundations in your life to help you develop sustainable recovery.

From the moment we greet you at the Gold Coast airport, to the time you say farewell, we will help you plan for a sustainable recovery. Our warm and caring staff will do everything they can to have all of your needs met, so you will build the best possible recovery to overcome your addiction. We help everyone plan carefully a comprehensive relapse prevention plan so when they exit the program, they are able to manage life without the need of the addiction.

Take care of yourself by treating yourself with love and respect. This is the beginning of treatment. Please remember that you will suffer doing the treatment and you will suffer not doing the treatment. Either way, you will suffer, but you may as well suffer completing your treatment and having something to show for it, rather than suffering in your addiction and have nothing to show for it. At the Gold Coast Addiction & Treatment Rehab we have a saying, “that we will drive our car, work and relationships by our principles, values and morals…. Regardless of how we feel…!!!” This is the cornerstone of sustainable recovery.

As many of our clients say, “It’s wonderful to be free from the control of this addiction that was destroying every part of my life. It’s great to start living again and actually enjoy life instead of enduring it in my addiction. Thanks heaps for your help.”
