Rehab can be done in many ways. You can do rehab at home, at a clinic in your own country or abroad. Taking a distance from your home situation and working temporarily on your recovery outside your country has certain advantages. You temporarily leave your private problems behind and certain temptations are completely eliminated.

Once you have made the decision to recover abroad, a rehab clinic or treatment in Spain can be a good option due to the favourable climate and pleasant environment.

If you want to go to Spain for rehab, you will generally have to pay for it yourself. There are small-scale clinics in other countries that may be covered by insurance, such as addiction clinics in South Africa.

Why go to rehab in Spain?

  1. Beautiful surroundings. Rehab is tough. A pleasant environment can ease the pain that arises. Your surroundings play an important role during the process. If you feel comfortable then you have a better chance of succeeding. Rehab clinics in Spain are often located in beautiful places so that peace and privacy are guaranteed.
  2. No procrastination, but working straight to recovery. General, you will go to a private clinic that is not covered by insurance. On the other hand, you can often get there quickly.
  3. One-on-one or group treatment. Each addiction treatment centre has its own philosophy about recovering from addiction, but there is generally a lot of time set aside for discussion. Some clinics have daily group sessions where you can talk about your addiction with your peers. Many recovering addicts find the company of fellow sufferers valuable.

Not everyone is keen on such group sessions and on temporarily living with others. There are other options for clients who want more privacy.

No Spanish is required, English is often sufficient

Because of its international character, English is the official language. Such clinics do sometimes employ ex-pat workers, but it is better to assume that you will have to speak English.

Is rehabilitation in Spain something for me?

Who pays for the treatment?

If you finance your own addiction treatment, all options are open to you. If you are dependent on your health insurer, the situation is slightly different.

And the travel costs?

In case of treatment abroad, travel costs are in principle at your own expense, even when your insurance covers the treatment.

What can I expect from rehab in Spain?

The main advantage is the completely new environment you are in. This gives you a kick and helps you look at your own situation in your own country with fresh eyes.

Peace and regularity

You should not see your stay in a detox clinic as a punishment. You are well looked after and your surroundings are comfortable. In general, you eat in groups and the food is of good quality. Regularity is important and you follow a reasonably tight schedule that also allows for free time.

Your sleeping quarters and other facilities

This differs per private clinic. At Hacienda Paradiso you can choose between double rooms and single rooms.
