What Makes South Pacific Private Australia’s Leading Treatment Centre?
For three decades South Pacific Private has been Australia’s most comprehensive and holistic treatment center, specialising in addiction, trauma, mental health and dual diagnosis. More than 12,000 people and their families have entrusted themselves to our care. 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 shapes 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 intensive 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.
