There is no one size fits all approach here. We work with what we have, without limitations and have a growing network of people who are achieving massive results from doing the work. From 12 step to non 12 step therapies, DBT, CBT, REBT and 2019’s finest holistic approaches – you get to decide the course you wish to take! Essentially we implement therapy with nature as you’ve never seen it before, but also get to experience a highly modern and cutting edge treatment program that focuses deeply on connecting body, mind, soul, emotions and spirituality.

Most of our work is done by referral, by clients who know what it takes to really implement lasting recovery changes at a high quality level. In a very uncertain time for traditional addiction treatment, know that with 30 years plus of professional experience, we know what works and what is sustainable. We offer an intensive programme that is time honoured, yet allow our clients the freedom to grow in an environment that suits their particular lifestyle needs.

Our brand has been built through one successful relationship after another with clients that have come to our drug rehab centres to end a life of chaos, obsession, compulsion and low quality living. 

Individualized Drug Addiction Rehab Centre

Anxiety and many other dual diagnosis’s require an emotive fix, rather than merely a physical one. To teach you about ‘how addiction works’ as a disease is not nearly enough of a goal of the Pathways programs. 

Make Your Life Extraordinary

Aside from being an alternative to regular, punitive primary 12 step drug rehab, we believe in client service, individuality and a life changing experience. 

Individualized Drug Addiction Rehab Centre

To change everything, and walk down a different road, you need to work on all aspects of yourself together and unconditionally. This is cast into the uniqueness of what we do.

It is often misunderstood, at great cost, that deep seated emotive disturbances are often part and parcel of the addiction cycle. It is where we tend to self sabotage in a number of different ways.

This is where our in-depth and modern recovery approach pays lasting dividends for our clients.
