At Ibiza Calm, our luxury addiction treatment center, we understand what it takes to get your life back. Our addiction and mental health treatment services provide individualised care, that is reactive to the needs of each client and lays the foundations for long-term recovery. We have a highly qualified, professional team of doctors, nurses, therapists, counsellors, key workers, and support staff who are on hand 24 hours-a-day to support you as you take the first step on your journey of healing.
Addiction can affect anyone, irrespective of age, class, ethnicity, or gender. It can occur in many forms, whether to a substance such as alcohol, drugs and prescription medication, or a behaviour like gambling or sex.
A serious, life-threatening, mental health disorder that is characterised as not having control over the use of a substance (or multiple substances); or the compulsion to participate in a specific activity; to the point where it is harmful, or dangerous, to the addict or those around them.
The effects of addiction are far-reaching, it rips apart families and destroys lives. It negatively impacts upon relationships, health, finances, and domestic or household dynamics.
We are the most personalised addiction treatment center and mental health rehab clinic in Europe. We have chosen to adopt a climate of serenity and peace and have developed a place of healing. Somewhere where our clients can feel fostered and protected in complete privacy, able to have the space they need to start their journey of recovery.
We treat a variety of addictions, including alcoholism, drug addiction, prescription medicine dependency, and process addictions (food disorders, gambling, and codependency); and mental health conditions such as generalised anxiety, major depressive disorder, bipolar and burnout.
Ibiza Calm uses a combination of therapeutic approaches and treatment options.
If required, the first stage of care at our addiction treatment center will be a medically assisted detox.
Detoxification, also known as detox, is often the initial step when an individual has been taking a physically dependent substance. This includes alcohol and prescription medicines, as well as some street drugs. Withdrawing from these can be dangerous and needs to be properly supervised, by a fully qualified, licensed medical professional.
At Ibiza Calm we have a full team of doctors, nurses, and psychotherapists, headed by our medical director, Dr Manuel Rodriguez. This enables us to ensure there is always a medical professional in attendance, on-site 24 hours a day.
Logotherapy is a form of counselling that focuses on finding meaning, recognising a positive life purpose, life values, and clear goals. During sessions, the therapist will guide the client towards identifying these within themselves.
It is founded on the principle that the primary motivation for human beings is to find meaning in their life. When a person cannot find meaning, they experience feelings such as emptiness, worthlessness, and futility. The frustration around this leads to anger, addiction, and depression.
Client-centred or person-centred therapy is a humanistic method that focuses on how individuals knowingly perceive themselves, rather than how a counsellor interprets their unconscious thoughts and actions. It focuses on the individual’s natural self-healing process.
In person-centred therapy the client acts as an equal partner in the therapy process, the therapist remains non-directive—they don’t pass judgments on feelings or offer suggestions or solutions. Within the correct client/counsellor relationship the individual drives the therapy sessions and establishes what they want to do with their lives.
Eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR) is a form of psychotherapy that uses bilateral stimulation to help people recover from trauma or other distressing life experiences.
A shocking, harrowing, or painful event can make an individual feel stunned and emotionally paralysed, and their brain is unable to completely process the situation. This can mean they are stuck with a disturbing, powerful memory that they can’t move on from.
EMDR aims to help the brain process the memory properly, making it no longer so extreme. By asking the person to recall the event whilst engaging in a form of bilateral stimulation; moving their eyes side to side or listening to sounds in alternate ears; it seems to unstick the memory and enable the individual to process it normally.
It has been used to help thousands of war and combat veterans, frontline emergency service professionals, the survivors of disasters, and abuse. It has also proved effective in the treatment of chronic pain, and those struggling with addiction and other mental health conditions including anxiety, depression, panic attacks, phobias, eating, and panic disorders.
Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a non-invasive, non-convulsive method of brain stimulation therapy that has proved effective in the treatment of addiction as well as other neurological and mental health conditions such as depression and general anxiety disorder.
TMS uses a magnetic field to deliver a short-lasting electrical pulse into the brain where it stimulates neurons (nerve cells). This has been shown to improve communication between different areas of the brain, particularly in the superficial regions of the cerebral cortex.
We know that being part of a group increases treatment outcomes. Suffering with an addiction or mental health issue, is often lonely and leads to isolation. Group therapy gives the individual an opportunity to share, and hear, from other like-minded people.
Group therapy is a big part of the programme at Ibiza Calm. We also run group workshops on a range of topics, including powerlessness, anger, family dynamics, acceptance, and trauma.
Horses are intelligent and sensitive creatures and working with them can help those struggling with addiction and other mental health disorders. Equine facilitated therapy is a treatment in which humans interact with horses in their natural environment, helping to support emotional growth and learning. It is a collaborative effort between the client, the therapist, and the horses themselves.
Working with horses teaches the importance of building healthy relationships, establishing and understanding boundaries, learning about responsibility and how to focus. It increases trust, confidence and self-control and fosters feelings of being needed and wanted.
Throughout their stay at our luxury addiction treatment center, clients have weekly visits to a beautiful and secluded farm set in the Ibiza hills. No previous experience of horses is necessary and there is no riding involved, making it accessible and suitable for everyone. Clients are always accompanied by a qualified and registered equine psychotherapist.
A successful treatment programme will include education on addiction, and the need for the use of a long-term maintenance plan. Following a stay in an addiction treatment center, support is vital to ensure ongoing abstinence from addictive substances, or behaviours, and continued mental health well-being.
Included within all our treatment packages is a free aftercare service, for six months. Consisting of a weekly group support session, held on zoom, and facilitated by one of our therapists. Clients are introduced to the aftercare group before they leave treatment, thus ensuring they get continuity of care, and confidence in the ongoing process.
A family member or a patient calls, we will explain the time frame, suitability, our costs and answer any other questions.
An initial telephone assessment with the client.
We give each client a date for admission and everyone is greeted by our clinical team on arrival.
I wanted to drop you a quick message to thank you very much for your help and support during my stay within Ibiza Calm. Each and every person in the house was important in his own way in my recovery. I feel very grateful to all of you. It’s not always easy but it is achievable. My life is way much better than it was before coming and I am definitely a better version of myself now.
My son attended two rehab facilities before going to Ibiza Calm. Ibiza Calm, however, was exactly what it professed to be. They worked with my son as a vital ally in his recovery process, not as a person to be broken and fixed according to a set regimen, who would be blamed and shamed if he did not respond appropriately to the facility's treatment protocol and schedule. The therapist assigned to my son struck the right balance between allowing him to move at a pace at which he was comfortable and pushing him to keep a challenging pace of self-discovery and recovery. My son has come out of this treatment calm and self-aware; whereas he finished the other programs angry and even traumatized. My son has only been 6 weeks out of Ibiza Calm, so the long-term success in remaining sober remains to be seen, but the change in his attitude and behavior is so profound that I have great hope for the future for the first time in years. I recommend Ibiza Calm without reservation, rather with overwhelming gratitude.
I was at Ibiza calm from the 4th of July to the 29th of July 2020, I am 23 years of age and was in a horrific place in my life From drink and cocaine. My girlfriend is pregnant and outright had enough of my selfish behaviour. I was really ready to start my recovery, I settled in fantastic they have amazing staff so helpful and caring, the food is unbelievable thanks to Danny the main man in the kitchen, the grounds are beautiful, the bedrooms are very nice I overall found my stay amazing. 10/10 couldn’t fault it many thanks Francis.
My husband was in the priory 6 months ago, which I wasn’t totally convinced by not only experiences of others but the surroundings/ Set up and approach to it .. he is only 2 weeks into his journey at IBIZA calm and it’s the first time in a long time I can finally hear happiness in his voice, and motivation on his healing / sobriety journey , commitment to his inner and outer health.. I know this is just the beginnings But both billy and Luca have been extremely helpful and helpful to myself ! If your looking for yourself or a loved one, 100 look no further this is the type of place someone who is suffering needs- the surroundings, the programme, the environment , and amazing team!
I can't thank the team at Ibiza Calm enough. I had a friend who spent time with them and what they have done is amazing. From the therapy to the meetings have all set him up for moving forward. Once he left he was not just left and has a fantastic aftercare system in place. Thank You.
I am writing a review on behalf of a friend who prefers to remain anonymous and wishes to express his thanks and gratitude to the staff at Ibiza Calm. He had previously stayed at two rehab centres in the UK, and found the experience at Ibiza Calm to be far more beneficial than either of the UK centres. He said he felt the therapists were much more experienced and caring in their approach which in turn gave him the confidence to finally fully open up about his triggers and issues. He has been sober for the longest period since he has started his road to recovery and it's all thanks to Ibiza Calm.
I'm so grateful for my month at Ibiza Calm. It's a beautiful place, and I learned how to manage my life in a positive way, with healthy food, exercise and self-awareness. I've had many life challenges since I left ( over 2 years ago), but I haven't used any of the destructive behaviours I previously relied on. I gained clarity, freedom and sanity, for which I will always be thankful.
