Marbella Recovery


The Basics

Located in Marbella, Spain, Marbella Recovery provides outpatient rehab for substance abuse and co-occurring mental health disorders. Marbella is a city and resort area on southern Spain’s Costa del Sol, part of the Andalusia region. The city is home to an upscale crowd, featuring lovely Mediterranean beaches, villas, hotels and golf courses. The facility typically offers a flexible, yearlong outpatient protocol that begins with the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) level of care and steps down to basic outpatient. Marbella Recovery is unique in the area because it caters to the resort and ex-pat community by offering Minnesota Model addiction treatment in English.

Treatment and Staff

Marbella offers individualized treatment programs for every client and the specific details of each plan vary. The most intensive phase of treatment usually lasts about six months. This level of care is on par with the typical IOP in the states, with two or three hours of treatment a day, four or five days a week. Programming includes multiple group sessions offered at various times throughout the day, at least one individual session per week and required AA/NA meetings. There are groups that are specifically dedicated to clients who require trauma-informed care and co-occurring disorders.

After a period of six months, clients usually step down to less intensive care for another six months. Typically, clients continue to attend group two or three times week and at least one individual session per month, as needed. Therapy methods in all programs include psychoeducationCBT, Motivational Interviewing (MI) and holistic approaches like exercise and nutritional counseling. Marbella Recovery emphasizes the 12-step philosophy of recovery and clients are required to attend AA meetings in the evenings.

The team at Marbella features an eclectic group, including a clinical psychologist and a number of Master’s-level therapists, as well as addiction counselors who are in recovery themselves. The Director of Marbella Recovery has more than 20 years clean and has served on the World Board of an international 12-step organization. Therapy is offered in Spanish, English, French, Dutch and German.


There is a certified yoga instructor on staff and recovery-oriented yoga classes are offered several times a week.

Marbella provides a support group for families at least once per month.
