Bali Beginnings Review

Situated along the east coast of Indonesia in Bali’s capital of Denpasar, Bali Beginnings is a luxury residential treatment facility for alcohol and substance use disorders as well as co-occurring disorders. Founded in 2015, Bali Beginnings embraces a therapeutic philosophy with the 12-step model as its cornerstone but also incorporates many evidence-based, holistic and complementary experiential methods.

Accommodations and Food

Residents start their recovery journey in a beautiful place right next to the beach with plenty of amenities. With only eight residents at a time, it’s an idyllic atmosphere for solitude. Clients enjoy large private bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, a fully equipped gym, large community kitchen, several pools and contemplation areas for meditation. Clients can upgrade into a private villa or a suite with king size beds. Residents have their choice of outdoor activities including surfing, swimming, hiking and mountain biking. Also, the facility encourages individuals to volunteer in the community.

Bali Beginnings serves a healthy and delicious European and Asian menu. Clients with dietary preferences or allergies can be accommodated.

Treatment and Staff

Upon making their reservation with Bali Beginnings clients undergo a comprehensive personal assessment. This evaluation assists the team in determining the most effective personalized treatment strategy. The residential program is 28 days long, and utilizes a multi-faceted approach to care that integrates a number of evidence-based, holistic and experiential therapies in addition to the 12-step model. While the foundation of the program is rooted in the 12 steps, clients also engage in individual and group therapy with therapists skilled in CBT, Motivational Interviewing (MI) and Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT). Coaching sessions are also offered, and residents participate in psychoeducation groups that focus on relapse prevention, boundaries, codependency and the disease of addiction.

The Bali Beginnings team is comprised of counselors, coaches, psychologists and nurses. Medication management is available for clients in need of dual diagnosis support.


There are also plenty of holistic options available like mindfulness, meditation, yoga, art therapy, reflexology, psychodrama, narrative therapy and acupuncture, Reiki and hypnotherapy.

Bali Beginnings believes in the power of family involvement in a client’s recovery. To this end, it offers a two-day family program that immediately follows the completion of the residential program.

In Summary

Situated in the small village of Sanur Kaja in Bali, Bali Beginnings is a luxury residential treatment facility that offers a 28 day program for clients with alcohol and substance use disorders. The program is largely 12-step based, but includes a host of evidence-based, holistic and experiential therapies as well as psychoeducation and coaching. For clients seeking a unique experience with both a comprehensive treatment program and an incredibly beautiful, natural setting, Bali Beginnings is an excellent option.
