Treatment Options


South Pacific Private offers a range of inpatient and day programs for the integrated treatment of addiction, mood disorders, anxiety and depression.

All programs are tailored to meet the individual needs of clients and are designed, structured and supervised by a multidisciplinary team of Psychiatrists, Psychologists, GPs, Registered Nurses, Psychotherapists and Counselors. Our structured treatment pathway clearly indicates our phases of treatment and upon admission your pathway will be managed and communicated to you by our experienced and passionate team. The overview of this pathway is pictured below and phases detailed in the sections underneath.


Phase One – Inpatient / Residential Program:

Research and over 20 years of experience has shown that the most effective way to treat clients with acute needs and to effect change is to provide a 24/7 therapeutic environment. The inpatient / residential program is designed to address problematic behaviours, attitudes, and feelings and support awareness about individual circumstances. Clients are also given tools and techniques which form the foundation of their Recovery and support their ongoing sobriety and well-being.

Phase Two – Intensive Outpatient – Transitions Program

The Transitions Program at South Pacific Private is designed to provide ongoing support for clients transitioning out of the structure of the Inpatient Program and back into the wider world.

Having already engaged with the South Pacific Private Program as an inpatient, most clients who attend the Transitions Program report benefiting from the fact that they can connect with the modules offered in the program and develop skills and tools with a degree of clarity that may not have been there whilst they were in very early Recovery. The aim of the program is to consolidate learning and provide an environment for clients to practice integrating newly learnt skills into their daily life. This program can be engaged with whilst clients reside at Beachwood Recovery House or they can attend daily and stay remotely.

Phase Three – Continuing Care

Day and Evening Programs are designed to support clients who are functioning well enough in their day-to-day lives to be able to remain in their home environment while seeking treatment. In addition to being an alternative to the Inpatient Program, Day and Evening Programs can also provide continuing care for patients after they have completed the Inpatient Program. These programs can be engaged in whilst clients reside at Beachwood Recovery House or they can attend daily and stay remotely.

Phase Four – Beachwood Recovery House
Beachwood Recovery House is an excellent choice for residents who have completed South Pacific Private’s inpatient residential program and also for individuals who wish to reconnect with their recovery. It is the ideal setting for those who require additional support with their recovery plan and maintenance and for those who are transitioning from an inpatient stay back into their daily life.

At Beachwood Recovery House there is the opportunity to expand on the foundation that clients have have built whilst engaging in daily programs and to strengthen their skills whilst supported by the Beachwood Support workers, the Program Therapists and the Beachwood community.

The key constructs of our treatment approach are outlined clearly below:

Dual Diagnosis / Comorbidity:

The high prevalence of coexisting mental illness and substance use disorders is well established in clinical practice. South Pacific Private are committed to addressing the challenges of coexisting mental illness and substance use disorders concurrently. The team of clinicians at our private rehab clinic is led by our Medical Superintendent, Dr Ben Teoh, who is one of Australia’s leading experts on dual diagnosis / comorbidity.

Psychotherapeutic Program:
At the heart of the South Pacific Private approach to treatment is the belief that developmental trauma (such as emotional or physical trauma) causes a predictable range of core issues which can be addressed at the same time as the presenting problems (e.g. mental illness, alcohol abuse or substance use) in order to support long-term addiction recovery and healing through a group therapy approach and setting.

Therapeutic Community:

South Pacific Private has developed a range of strategies to promote healthy communication within the client community. It is within this therapeutic community that the team can facilitate the development of self-awareness, accountability, boundaries, emotional maturity and functional adult skill-building.

Continuing Care and Relapse Prevention:

Continuing care planning is an essential part of recovery as it helps to prepare clients for re-entry into their home, work, and social environments. This extended commitment to ongoing care has been evidenced to support better outcomes for long-term Recovery and is a critical component of treatment planning at South Pacific Private. y.

Treating the Whole Family:

South Pacific Private believes that treating the whole family is more effective than treating just the individual. A cornerstone of treatment is the Family Program, where family members are invited to participate in an intensive and supportive program of education, structured exercises and guided discussions that explore the family system and relationships. There is research which supports improved relapse prevention where the family understand the nature of addiction and addiction recovery.

Find out if you have a problem

The goal of our self-tests is not to provide you with a diagnosis for yourself or for someone you care about. Instead, they are an opportunity for you to better understand how a behaviour might be impacting upon your life or the life of your family. Use these tests to enhance your awareness of what the problem might be. These tests should be answered honestly in order to provide accurate insight and are a chance for you to reflect upon the current situation.
