Treatment for substance & alcohol dependence, depression, anxiety and stress

We provide treatment of the symptoms and underlying causes of substance dependency, mood disorders and persistent sadness.

Many people who come to us for depression, stress, burnout and other issues use alcohol or substances as a form of self-medication to find temporary relief.

Conversely many of our clients who come to us for substance abuse treatment are suffering from the effects of anxiety, depression or just enormous stress.

Our system for diagnosis and the substance abuse treatment methods employed are dynamic and holistic, your program will adapt during your stay with us to treat underlying issues as they are unveiled. We understand that everyone is different and unique and thus each treatment plan is bespoke to the individual being treated. We will take into account what your health needs, goals and expectations are and curate a treatment plan to assist you in your recovery.

The list below are the most common ailments we treat. However our expertise is not limited to this list, we also work with people suffering from grief, trauma, complex PTSD, eating disorders, nicotine cravings and many more. You or someone you know may be suffering from one of the mentioned ailments as well as a range of other issues. It is important to note these issues with your clinician during the clinical assessment so we can ensure we tailor a treatment plan to address these issues. Please contact us for more information if your issue is not mentioned here.

Although we are a substance abuse rehabilitation centre we shy away from the terms ‘alcoholic’ and ‘addict’ and use ‘dependence’ and ‘addiction’ only for convenience. We find that ascribing labels is unhelpful and counter to the notion of personalised treatment.

I arrived at Istana Barbados in a terrible condition, alcohol had brought me to my knees, I was on the brink of blowing my professional reputation and losing my family. The medical team nursed me through a long detox and the rest of the team put me on the path to recovery. Two of the team flew back to New York with me and stayed for 2 months to help me adjust to this new life. From beginning to end a life changing experience from the best team of people. Just fantastic. Thank you.

Istana Jiwa is a place for profound and permanent transformation. I found the team to be working at the highest level in their fields. Many have also been on the dark side of addiction and come out the other side; they, if anyone, know the pathway to release. And that’s this brilliantly conceived, bespoke rehab concept which accommodates you in a 5 star private villa with every whim catered for, then drills down with proper therapy for lasting change. Coming through addiction is brutal but here there is shelter from the storm - a beautiful place to rest and get the space to heal, with 24/7 care and love. It’s expensive but what price sanity?

I started with Istana Jiwa in pretty ordinary shape; marriage had collapsed and I was self medicating with anything I could find to suppress the deep sense of despair and depression. The program transformed me – physically and emotionally. I spent 60 days in the program working on finding myself and I left feeling genuine hope and a real fortitude to tackle life again.

I went to Istana Jiwa to reset my mind and change the way I was living. Stress had got the better of me, I was partying too hard and I was close to blowing up my career and losing my family. Amazingly I found some like minded souls in the Istana Jiwa team, people who had lived my life in the corporate arena, who understood me and helped me recalibrate my life. I now feel better than ever before, and I even gave up smoking there!

For my sins I have been to a few treatment centres around the world, nothing comes close to Istana Jiwa. I went deeper and achieved more in therapy than I have ever gone before, I made peace with meditation and yoga - both things I have resisted in the past and both I now practise in daily life. I feel transformed, thank you.

I travelled from Los Angeles to Istana Jiwa on the recommendation of a friend and in my mind, it was a leap into the unknown. I was completely unprepared for how cosmopolitan, competent, professional and caring the staff were. From the moment I was met at the airport to the moment I left I felt cared for and understood. This was an utterly life-changing experience, I never thought I would say I loved going to rehabilitation but I actually did.
