An outpatient treatment is designed for people who are not able to attend a full inpatient treatement program, a tailored program is drawn up which consists mainly of group meetings and individual therapy sessions with a clinical psychologist. Outpatient counseling may also like a ‘preliminary stage’ of treatment and may serve as support for the loved ones and family members as well as aftercare following a clinical procedure.
Admission can take place immediately after intake, there are no waiting lists. This intensive 8 weeks of treatment in a partner clinic abroad combined with an outpatient aftercare program of 12 weeks, has proven to bring the best results.
Addiction effects the whole family. Dear Ones, relatives and partners are also closely involved before, during and after the treatment of the addiction. We find that everyone involved needs to start the process of recovery.
Sober Living House
The Sober Living House is a safe environment for continued recovery, under the guidance of psychologists and experts we further explore the necessary traits for long term recovery. We feel that for the best results a guided reintegration into society should take place.
Serenity Vitality Retreat
The retreats are hosted in the Belgian Ardennes. Clients arrive on Friday and leave on Sunday afternoon. There are approximately 28 hours of therapy. I have designed the groups to reach each level of the client, spiritual, physical and mental. I lead the retreats with the assistance of a gentleman, who is also a recovering addict. He is currently working as a yoga instructor and conscious revealer. He helps people work through the emotional pain as part of his practice.
The clients have everything provided for them from food to lodging.
All meals are specifically designed to enhance the experience. The actual schedule is designed by me and I do not give it to the clients until a few days before. I don’t want them to overthink the experience.
We are currently working on an Empowerment Retreat. This is using the courage to be sober, the strength to change and connection with your higher power to reclaim the power in your life. These retreats are being offered to both addicts and families and from the family side, it is more about love and peace. In healing from addiction, we need to make peace with our past and that can be done through love which in itself is an endless source of power.
