Urban Drug Rehab is the brainchild of its founder and CEO Jose Sauer, who is based out of Maleny, Queensland in Australia. It consists of a collection of outpatient-based recovery programs and services for clients struggling with addiction. Unlike most outpatient facilities, the majority of the organization’s services are offered exclusively online and directly to each client. The program’s flagship product is the eHab program, a comprehensive and downloadable treatment course.
Treatment and Staff
In many ways, the eHab course is an unusual treatment process as it is not 12-step based nor is it particularly rooted in evidence-based practices. The course does not conform to the addiction-as-a-disease model nor does it support the theory that addiction is a medical issue either. Instead, Sauer outlines a holistic approach which explains that the desire for drug use is a natural one that only becomes harmful when not channeled appropriately (namely into methods like meditation and yoga). The course itself consists of 24 video modules which participants can complete at their own pace after purchasing the product. Generally speaking, topics include a focus on orthomolecular therapy, Chi therapy, future visioning and other holistic approaches including acupuncture and massage techniques. Each of the videos is taught by Sauer himself.
Sauer also works with some local facilities to provide residential treatment experiences which are essentially self-help courses with varying lengths of stay. Each of these courses is individualized though they focus on similar topics as the ones covered in the eHab modules. Those who complete one of these programs can also take home an eHab course as an aftercare option. The organization also sells a range of recovery-related books which follow a similar treatment philosophy.
Overall, Urban Drug Rehab is a broad organization with a number of individualized options for clients in recovery. The organization’s eHab program eschews traditional recovery methods and doctrines in favor of a holistic, Chinese-medicine based approach to therapy which is in some sense experimental. Still, for those looking for a cheap alternative to longer-term rehab, Urban Drug Rehab’s online program may be worth considering.
