Luxury Private Drug Rehab

Bespoke treatment and lasting results for drug addiction

Clients come to Istana luxury drug rehab for our emphasis on confidentiality and our expertise in rapid recovery and lasting results from substance addiction. 

We focus on one client at a time, and dedicate a curated team to your physical, mental and spiritual recovery from drug abuse. All this is set in an environment of privacy, luxury and calm.

The life-changing experience of personalised one-to-one drug addiction treatment is considered to be the most effective method to provide life-long recovery from drug dependence for willing and engaged clients. Please contact us to find out more.

Please note that we are selective about who we can admit as drug addiction clients and we are unable to accept anyone who presents as a risk to themselves or others. In the unlikely event that this is the case will refer you to one of our partner facilities.

Bespoke one-to-one treatment

At the Istana luxury drug rehab we won’t ask you to fit into a one-size-fits-all program, attend group therapy, adhere to strange community rules or share facilities with a group of strangers.

Your drug addiction treatment program is created after a personal and clinical assessment. It will be specifically designed to meet your needs, keep you interested and engaged and to achieve your personal goals for recovery.

You will stay in your own private 5-star villa set in lush, spacious and secure grounds. Our villas are quietly luxurious and unbranded, all come with pools, domestic staff, personal chef and 24 hour security.

Drug abuse is a malaise of the mind, body and soul so treatment at the Istana luxury drug rehab is holistic to treat your mind, body and soul.

We will help you to resolve the underlying issues of your drug abuse and  see clearly that drugs are not a necessary or even helpful solution to life’s problems.

Arrange a confidential discussion with one of our team to find out how we can help you.

Results that last a lifetime

Some clients worry that giving up drugs may doom them to a dull life isolated from social occasions. Many of our drug addiction treatment staff have been in recovery for a long time, if you have this concern please allow us show you that quite the opposite is true.

Clients who engage in their program and maintain what they have learnt can expect life long results from this experience.

You really can leave Istana Luxury Drug Rehab and experience the complete freedom of never being dependent on substances again.

If you or someone you know is having problems with drug addiction, please do contact us for advice.

  • A senior member of our team will meet you at your plane, fast-track you through immigration/customs and take you to your villa
  • Time to decompress – acclimatisation to your surroundings and introduction to the program

  • Clients normally have 3-4 psychology sessions per week. More if necessary.
  • During these sessions you will be able to safely explore and resolve all the underlying issues behind your discontent and drug addiction
  • You will also be able to recognise, examine and discard any other unhealthy coping mechanisms you may be using to get through the day 
  • Together you and your psychologist will set new life goals. To bring these goals to reality you will learn how to heal yourself by integrating healthy living and mindfulness practices into your new life
  • Additionally you will become fully armed with real-life coping skills to manage triggers as they arise in your daily personal and professional life and thus prevent relapse

  • Your program will match your interests and will consist of a mutually agreed selection of complementary modalities. We have a huge range to select from with world class instructors of yoga, meditation, personal training, martial arts, art therapy to name just a few
  • And we want to help you reignite old passions and discover new interests. You are welcome to try out any therapeutically beneficial recreational pursuits you are interested in such as music, cultural experiences, spiritual exploration, writing, photography, diving, snorkelling, surfing, jungle walks or climbing volcanos to name just a few

Latest research on drug addiction and treatment

Drug addiction has always been with us. Over the last fifteen years, science and medicine have found comprehensive evidence showing that this is a condition of the mind, body and soul, often caused by complex underlying reasons. Possibilities for recovery and treatment methods have expanded rapidly.  

The latest research shows that there is a spectrum of drug addiction ranging from stress related drug abuse to full blown chemical dependency. Substance and drug abuse are normally symptoms of deeper issues causing a condition of varying severity involving memory, motivation and brain reward. According to the Center of Addiction in America, substance addiction is “caused by a combination of behavioural, environmental, and biological factors”.

So, your issue with drug dependence really is unique to you. A bespoke program in a residential private drug rehab designed specifically to address your unique needs is critical for a successful and sustainable outcome.

If you suspect that you, or a loved one has a problem with drug addiction or drug dependence the best time to act is now, please contact us. Health, reputations and relationships are at stake and these are often irrevocably lost if one waits to reach ‘rock bottom’ before seeking help.

Our one-to-one approach means during your drug addiction treatment you will experience none of the chaotic energy associated with regular drug rehabs

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!
Simon, Hong Kong
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.
David, London
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.
