The Bay Retreats Rehab Experience

Your First Day at The Bay Retreats.

From the moment you say yes to a retreat with us, you can relax and let us hold the space with you.

We will pick you up at the airport and drive you to your private residential retreat where you will be greeted by your Care Manager and Clinical Director. After light refreshment, your process will begin with an orientation to your retreat home and some initial assessment.

Comfortable Medically-assisted Detox.

If you require detox, we will ensure that it is as gentle and manageable as possible. During detox, your personal nurse will monitor you around the clock and our medical doctor will be on hand to supervise your progress. We don’t believe there is any benefit to be had from suffering through extreme withdrawal symptoms, so if needed, we will offer mild medication during your detox.

Settling into Your Rehabilitation Retreat.

Once your detox is completed your rehabilitation retreat begins. By now you will have experienced the feeling of ‘holding’ that a safe and caring environment can provide. Your team of staff are attuned to you, offering friendly, warm and professional support. They are there when you need them and also understand that there may be times when you prefer to have space to yourself.
