Recovery centre for addiction, compulsive and obsessive behaviour and stress management

The first group are people who already identify as being in recovery  from addictive substances or behaviours.  These are people who choose to take a short time-out from normal life commitments to focus on a particular aspect of their programme in a supportive environment.

The second type of person is someone who may be questioning whether they are stuck in patterns of obsessive thinking or compulsive behaviour.  They may identify with the description of living life in one’s own head or feeling disconnected from the physical world or other people.

These people come to a Recovery Centre with a sense of curiosity, interested in what recovery might look like for them.

The third type of person is someone who recognises they have a problem with obsessive thinking or compulsive behaviours and need help from experienced clinicians and support staff to develop a tailor-made Recovery Plan.

Drinking too much

Using recreational drugs or prescribed medications habitually

Compulsively gambling, gaming or spending money


Binge eating or using sex

An inability to switch-off from work or their corporate identity

Compulsively checking social media or relying on the internet & television for social connection

Restricting food or compulsively exercising

Living in fantasy through compulsive dating or romanticising unhealthy attachments/partners


All of these activities have the same consequence, which is to disconnect people from the world and each other.  Creating a life most often lived inside one’s own head  resulting in symptoms of anxiety, depression or emotional disturbances.


Australian Recovery Centres primary purpose is to show Australians how to step out of these addictive mental patterns to re-join the natural environment and each other.
