The Seven Dimensions of Wellness

Due to the different impacts that substances can have on an individual, we use a holistic approach to our treatment as we believe wellness is multidimensional. We champion Dr Bill Hettler’s (1976) model of seven dimensions of wellness. These seven dimensions address wellness from various angles:








Other Treatment Approaches

We also use different evidence-based substance abuse treatment models that have proven to be effective in the field of substance dependency; these include the following:

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)

A form of psychotherapy that focuses on how a person's thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes affect their feelings and behaviours.

12-Step Programme

Often referred to as the 'ACTION programme,' the 12-Step Programme is a set of guiding principles that, when actioned, is incredibly powerful to help those with addiction recovery.

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT)

A more specific form of CBT which looks at helping a person manage their emotions and how they relate to others in their relationships. It covers mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness.

Therapeutic Community (TC)

A treatment environment whereby those in the community interact together and act as both client and therapist; clients help others while receiving help.

Biopsychosocial Model

This model states that the body, mind, and environment all play an equal part in determining the outcome of an individual's wellbeing.

Psychodynamic Psychotherapies

A form of psychology, psychodynamic psychotherapy taps into what is happening on an unconscious level in an individual's mind. This approach focuses on a person's thoughts and feelings as opposed to their behaviour and how the past affects an individual's present behaviour.

We model our intensive alcohol and drug recovery treatment (whether that's inpatient or outpatient) off evidence-based practices proven to be effective in the field of substance dependency. We use modalities like CBT, DBT, and reflective meditation for emotional regulation. Our eclectic treatment model focuses on the 12-step programme for a recovery guide whilst integrating psychodynamic psychotherapies that look at past barriers versus future goals. We structure our holistic approach according to the seven dimensions of wellness (SPECIES), covering spiritual, physical, emotional, career, intellectual, environmental, and social.

It's important to note that our team listens to each individual's goals surrounding their use. Some patients prefer to take a harm reduction approach, while others want to take an abstinence approach:

Harm Reduction Approach

An individual would like to see if they're able to keep drinking or using a substance. However, they have set parameters and accountability in place around the level of use with their AOD (Alcohol and Other Drugs) clinician.

Abstinence Approach

An individual has chosen to stop their drinking and/or drug use completely, refraining from consuming the relevant substance for the period of their lifetime.

If your rehab treatment takes you down the pathway of requiring our residential stay, you are required to undertake an abstinence approach.


Our recovery treatment pathway comprises the following: 


Complete our AOD Comprehensive Evaluation Assessment.


Meet with our clinical team to discuss the best approach for effective treatment.


We formulate and present a treatment plan, encouraging you to ask as many questions as you would like regarding your treatment.


We determine a treatment pathway based on the treatment plan. We provide recommendations based on our professional expertise and whether our intensive inpatient or outpatient programme is best for you.


Medical detoxification is generally required if the treatment pathway is to enter our inpatient residential recovery programme.

Inpatient Vs Outpatient Treatment Approaches


Entering our intensive inpatient therapeutic community (TC) involves coming and living on-site for approximately 3-4 weeks.


We work with you to implement a recovery lifestyle into your current personal and work schedule (you don't live on-site).
