Treatment for substance abuse problems, depression 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.
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. Please contact us for more information if your issue is not mentioned here.
Although we are an 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 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.Maggie, LA
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.Rob, London
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!Simon, HK
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.L, Melbourne
