What Makes South Pacific Private Australia’s Leading Treatment Centre?
Thirty years ago, South Pacific Private became Australia’s first comprehensive and holistic treatment centre specialising in addiction, trauma, mental health and dual diagnosis. Over 12,000 people and their families have attended our programs. We know what works.
Many of our staff, including our founders, directors, managers, counsellors and therapists are in recovery from addiction, codependency, depression and anxiety themselves. Our lived experience of these issues shape our philosophies, our approach and most importantly it fosters our ability to offer connection and guidance. We really do know what works.
Treating the cause, not just the symptoms
Our proven and rigorous programs are designed to identify and address the underlying causes of addiction and mental health issues, not just the presenting symptoms. Unpacking and resolving our history is key to long term recovery.
Healing Families, Repairing Relationships
We remain Australia’s only private hospital with dedicated family, partner and children’s programs to repair relationships, support recovery and break the cycle of intergenerational trauma and addiction.
Trauma informed care
We adhere to the principles of safety, trust, choice and empowerment for all interactions with our clients ensuring the most ideal environment for deep healing.
International clinical expertise
With our commitment to international training and development for all clinical staff, the depth and range of expertise at South Pacific Private is second to none.
Beachside, holistic programs
South Pacific Private is proud to offer a holistic, integrated treatment program which makes full use of our iconic, beachside location to nurture mind, body and spirit through our mindful eating program, group therapy, educational lectures, yoga and meditation.
There are a multitude of peer reviewed studies that demonstrate intensive psychotherapeutic residential programs like ours, that utilise the 12 step programs (e.g.; Alcoholics Anonymous) followed by ongoing outpatient support offer the best outcomes for long term recovery and sobriety.
Private hospital, covered by health insurance
As a fully-accredited private hospital, South Pacific Private’s programs are overseen by psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists and a specialised nursing team, and are fully covered by Australia’s major private health insurers.
Inclusivity, diversity and equity is a priority
We are committed to providing all Australians, across all lived experiences, the opportunity to bring their whole selves to their journey of recovery from addiction, trauma, depression and anxiety, regardless of their gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity or physical ability.
