28 day rehab


I am a registered New Zealand Drug and Alcohol Practitioner & Social Worker with professional accreditation and years of experience in the field of Drug & Alcohol Rehabilitation and substance related issues. I am also the founder & Clinical Director of a premier Rehabilitation Centre in Bali, and founder of the non-profit Movement Of Recovery platform. In recovery now 17yrs myself.

I recently returned to New Zealand having escorted a client from a Drug Treatment service that closed due to Coronavirus, I am now currently in lock-down doing a tailor-made 1 on 1 South Island New Zealand Rehabilitation drug & alcohol treatment service. Practicing best health and safety Coronavirus procedures and protocol working together with the client to have them return to their family & loved ones - substance free, of healthy mind, healthy body and spirit - in times of Coronavirus.

The majority of New Zealand rehab centers have also closed due to the current Coronavirus epidemic. I empathize with individuals, loved ones and families who have substance addiction or related issues at this time or at the best of times, but it doesn’t have to be this way.

How It Works

  • After an initial free assessment, I offer the service of discussing best treatment options and personalized care, based on the preferences of the client.
  • If (as a result of the latter) it seems the best course of action I can set up detoxification regimes overseen by a professional assessors and GP’s and make referrals other services if required.
  • Practicing best health & safety during Coronavirus I can only move from 1 safe isolation zone to another. In line with this clients will be required to undergo a Coronavirus test before commencing the: My Holistic Recovery – Southern Rehab New Zealand Isolation Program.
  • Working with the families and loved ones throughout treatment is a proven course of action for best treatment outcome. (However this is entirely up to the individual)

Utilising my knowledge of the neurobiology of addiction, gratification and the reward model to give empirical evidence of the importance of finding and sustaining a fulfilling life substance-free.

As a Drug and Alcohol practitioner, I work closely with each individual, in order to ascertain which modalities of practice work best, based on personal preference, cultural background, belief systems & other factors which may be blocking one’s path to freedom from addiction.

I have extensive experience in RECOVERY CASE MANAGEMENT, facilitating groups, giving family and school educational sessions, individual counseling, team management, plus an array of other skill sets.
