Effective treatment and lasting results for Substance Dependencies
Clients come to the Istana Jiwa substance abuse treatment centre in Bali for our expertise in rapid recovery and lasting results delivered in an environment of luxury, privacy and calm without the often chaotic energy of normal rehabilitation centres.
We focus on one client at a time, guarantee complete confidentiality and will dedicate an entire hand-picked team to your recovery.
The life-changing experience of intensive one-to-one therapy is considered to be the most effective method to provide life-long recovery from substance dependence for willing and engaged clients.
Please note that we have to be highly selective about who we can admit as substance abuse clients and we are unable to accept anyone who appears to be a risk to themselves or others. If this is the case will refer you to one of our partner facilities either here in Bali or a location of your choice.
Bespoke one-to-one treatment
At the Istana Jiwa substance abuse treatment centre in Bali we won’t ask you to fit into a one-size-fits-all program, attend group therapy, obey childish community rules or share facilities with a group of strangers.
Your program is created after we have spoken to you. It will be specifically designed to meet your needs 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 unbranded and all come with pools, discreet domestic staff, personal chef and 24 hour security.
Treatment at the Istana Jiwa substance abuse centre in Bali is holistic to treat your mind, body and soul.
A medically supervised cleanse of substances is the first step, this gradually recedes over the following days or weeks.
Once you are settled gentle personal training, bodywork and complementary therapies are introduced to strengthen your body and calm the mind.
All this happens in tandem with regular psychotherapy sessions which explore the underlying issues behind your substance denpendancy.
We will help you to resolve these issues and appreciate that substances are not a necessary or even helpful solution to life’s problems.
Results that last a lifetime
Within a few weeks you will catch glimpses of a long-forgotten sense of joy.
When you are ready to leave you will be thinking clearly and moving lightly, with pride in your appearance, a sense of calm in your mind and complete confidence in the knowledge that you are able to maintain long-lasting recovery.
This holistic treatment method will give you an experientially derived understanding of how to live a happy and fulfilling life without the misuse of chemical substances and their devastating effects.
Some of our clients worry that giving up substances may doom them to a boring life isolated from social occasions. Some of our staff have been in recovery for a long time, so if you have this concern allow us to show you that quite the opposite is true.
Clients who engage in our program and maintain what they have learnt can expect life long results from this experience.
You can leave Istana Jiwa and never use again.
Information on substance abuse and rehabilitation treatment
Substance abuse has always been with us. Thankfully in the last 15 years science and medicine have dispelled the old views that denpendency is a moral or intellectual weakness. It can be viewed as a disease of the mind, body and soul.
The clinical definition of substance abuse as defined by the National Institute of Drug Abuse is: A chronic, relapsing disease that is characterised by compulsive substance seeking and use, despite harmful consequences.
A more casual definition is that some people can successfully use substances recreationally and others can’t.
The onset of dependency or habitual behaviour can be slow or rapid and often an unmanageable substance user is the last to know they have a problem.
The reasons for substance abuse can be complex. Treatment for substance denpendency can only be successful when the underlying causes are identified and resolved and healthier pursuits replace dependence on substances for a solution to life’s problems.
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 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
