Located in Málaga, Spain, Camino Recovery is a broad organization that offers flexible and individualized treatment plans for those struggling with addiction, co-occurring disorders and mental illness. In addition to more common addiction issues, the facility also provides programs for process-oriented addictions such as compulsive eating and gambling. Though the organization also has more flexible outpatient options, its flagship program is its residential treatment plan.
Accommodations and Food
Camino Recovery is a sprawling villa on a 10-acre plot in the Sierra Tejeda Mountains on the Mediterranean Sea. The residence has eight beds total each with queen and king-sized beds and private bathrooms. Due to its location, the facility spends the vast majority of the year drenched in sunlight. It also boasts an outdoor swimming pool, landscaped gardens and avocado groves. Other than the suites themselves, the location also includes shared common areas, therapy rooms, cable TV and WiFi throughout. Clients are also within walking distance to the beach. Throughout their stay, all residents are served three meals a day by on-site chefs who serve healthy and nutritious dishes (including traditional Spanish dishes).
Treatment and Staff
Before beginning a program, all clients go through an intake and assessment process to help staff members develop their care plans. Those in need of detox can do so on-site before continuing with treatment. Programs typically last for 30 to 90 days.
Though all programs are individualized, clients can expect to attend group, family and individual therapy with evidence-based treatment practices including CBT, DBT, EMDR and Motivational Interviewing (MI).Groups and educational workshops cover many topics including self-esteem, trauma processing, inner child work, relapse prevention, life skills, grief and other rotating topics. Dual diagnosis support and medication management are also provided along with regular 12-step participation.
The staff at Camino Recovery consists of consulting doctors and nurses, psychiatrists, psychologists and additional Master’s-level psychotherapists and clinicians.
The facility also provides a range of holistic therapy options including equine-assisted therapy, Reiki, yoga, meditation, acupuncture and massage therapy. Those seeking a more flexible option can also attend outpatient care as well. Those who complete a primary care regimen can also work with staff members to develop stepped down aftercare plans as necessary.
In all, Camino Recovery is an expansive program that provides individualized, well-rounded care to clients struggling with addiction and co-occurring disorders. The facility itself is a beautiful, luxury villa with comfortable decor and a palatial atmosphere. Treatment includes evidence-based therapy, 12-step integration, holistic care and dual diagnosis support with psychiatric oversight. While the cost may vary by length of stay and insurance specifics, Camino Recovery’s residential program remains a strong resource for those seeking an international rehab option.
