Treating the Mind, Body and Soul
Dependence of any kind is as much a spiritual malaise as it is physical. At Istana Jiwa our alcohol addiction treatment is a holistic and measured approach.
We won’t ask you to fit into a predetermined program, attend group therapy or share facilities with a group of strangers. You will be housed in your own private 5 star villa safely set in large grounds complete with pool, discreet domestic staff and personal chef. Your program to resolve alcohol addiction is created after we have spoken to you and will be designed to specifically meet your individual needs and to achieve your personal goals for recovery.
Extended misuse of alcohol, or ongoing excessive drinking, and its abrupt cessation can induce uncomfortable withdrawals. If your detox is likely to be severe we will refer you to a trusted partner in a nearby facility or your hometown. If it is manageable we will medically supervise you and our medical team will administer appropriate medication until the withdrawals are stabilised.
Once you are settled, gentle personal training, bodywork and complementary therapies are introduced to strengthen your body and calm the mind. These happen in tandem with psychotherapy which will explore and address the underlying issues behind excessive drinking.
We will help you to understand and resolve these issues and give you life long freedom from alcohol addiction.
Within a few weeks you will experience a clearer mind, a stronger body and you will catch glimpses of a long forgotten sense of joy.
This holistic treatment method will give you an experientially derived understanding of how to live a happy and fulfilling life without the misuse of alcohol and its devastating effects.

Information on Problem Drinking and Alcohol Addiction
A problem with alcohol can take many shapes and vary wildly in appearance and severity. However it is generally perceived as progressive and eventual alcohol addiction is characterised by a strong need to drink despite the undeniable problems associated with continued use.
Alcohol addiction is overshadowed by drug dependence and its harmful effects are underrated. It is physically destructive and takes enormous toll on those close to a problem drinker.

I traveled 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 rehab 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
