After almost 20 years of significant and problematic Drug and Alcohol abuse I found myself to be be at yet another drug fueled rock bottom. It was finally time for rehabilitation, Sivana Bali was my choice of treatment centres and I am forever grateful for this selection.

From the extremely comforting admission phone call that was promptly made after inquiring online I knew this was the place to turn my life around. Upon arrival I was greeted by a senior staff member an a lovely indonesion man and taken to the centre. Not knowing what to expect I was pleasantly surprised from the get go. The accommodation, the relaxed nature of the centres perfectly manicured grounds, the pools even the transport was something a drug addict would not have thought they deserved yet alone was able to enjoy, the meals were second to none and I had everything I needed to start fresh.

Each and everyone of the experienced staff were loving, caring and more importantly understanding to my situation and needs. The benefit of the therapeutic community was amazing and probably equally as important to recovery as the staff. David R is a man who has given me the ability to forge myself and new and prosperous new life while living clean and sober. I genuinely could not be happier with my personal experience an Sivana Bali.

I’m currently back working, have a relationship with my family again that I did not have before, have friends back in my life and to this day my body is gratefully free from drugs and alcohol.
A very personal thank you to all the staff at Sivana Bali you have given me life again that I now appreciate and enjoy.

With love.

Best decision of my life. You guys change the way I see life. From ungrateful drama queen to a very grateful person. Now I wake up in the morning with hope. Thanks Sivana

The decision to come to Sivana was the best decision I made in my life, as being an addict it’s not easy to go to rehab and understand that I need help. Sivana made this journey possible with much fun along the way, with taking more personal and almost like a family-oriented way to help me enjoy life in recovery, I’m very grateful to Sivana to make it possible to me.


I came into Sivana Bali a broken man, there was just a shell of a person. I was depressed, anxious, angry, selfish, self-centered and didn’t care myself or anyone else. Years of alcohol abuse had culminated into several suicide attempts before I made a last ditch effort to try and save my life. All my best efforts to stop ultimately ended in vain, I couldn’t beat this disease on my own. No way.

Then I did something that would change my miserable life around. I called Sivana Bali. It has turned out to be the best decision I’ve ever made. Right through from the initial assessment to entering the facility, everything was so professional along with a caring, compassionate attitude. You’re not just a number at Sivana, you’re a person. Believe me, I’ve been in and spoken to other rehabs and Sivana and their wonderful program puts these others to shame.

Now, onto to the program. It does involve working the 12 steps. It can be confronting, it can be emotional, it can be challenging but it was exactly what I needed. My only other option was to effectively drink myself to death or end my life at my own hands. It was a no brainer. This 12 step program combined with an informative and thorough education program made my journey back to being a functioning and responsible person so much easier and worthwhile.
Combining this with sessions of yoga, beach exercise in the mornings, and visits to the gym, tied the whole program together with a great balance.

The staff here are just amazing! My heartfelt thanks go out to the Clinical Director, Nev. You never stopped believing in me, challenging me when you knew I could give more and was there whenever I needed to lean on someone. You saw me at my worst and helped share your knowledge of addiction and the many tools to help me overcome this beast of a disease. Thank you.

The head counsellor, David, wow man, I’ve had many counsellors before but you are without doubt the best. You gained my trust from the start through your genuinely compassionate and understanding nature. The concepts we went through to address my many issues were empathetic and thorough. I’m amazed at how far I’ve come emotionally. With your help. Thank you so much.

To all the recovery coaches, I can’t speak highly enough! Anytime I needed help with my step work or just a general chat, each of you were there, non-shaming and just so understanding. You all were my rock when I needed strength and inspirations continually.

Wayan our Chef, you were a gorgeous person as well as a fantastic cook. Nutrition plays such an important part of recovery and we all felt spoilt with your differing choices of cuisine.
Last but certainly not least are the ground staff and support workers. Always there with a smile and a hat, nothing we asked was ever a problem.

So, I leave Sivana Bali after 60 days. Within that time frame such a wide range of emotions. But for the first time in my life I have hope. I’ve attained a wide variety of tools and knowledge for my journey ahead. Most of all I am a man with his principals and morals back. I am sober. I’m glad I could put my journey so far in writing.

Thank you Sivana Bali, you’ve help put me back on the right path, one which I thought I’d lost. I will never forget your help and hope you have bestowed upon me.


It is with deep gratitude that I write this letter of recommendation and thanks for my care during my time at Sivana, Bali.

I came to Bali with acute anxiety, suffering panic attacks, nearly house bound from fear and a rapid decline in my health. All my relationships were failing including that with my partner who could no longer cope.

I came in desperate as nothing else I had tried worked. I had a debilitating alcohol and drug problem that will power could not combat but I still felt I could control. The experienced staff were patient, tolerant, and understanding.

I learnt so much about who I am and my patterns of behavior, and was able to process the pain, grief and shame I had held onto for so long. I highly recommend the counselling and education sessions which have given me life tools to support recovery in the real world.

Supporting a 12 step program I am now exceptionally grateful that I was introduced to daily meetings as this is something that I was not open to and would not have attended by my own volition and has given me the gift of community, a loving sponsor and the personal growth afforded by working a 12 step program.

My life is very different today. I initially came for 28 days and stayed for 90 learning so much about myself, education on addition and feeling reconnected to myself and nurturing my spirituality which was dead before I came in. I am repairing family relationships. I don’t feel uncomfortable in my own skin and value my self- worth.

I now live with integrity, without fear and feel at peace and happy. I am in debt to this program and highly recommend this for loved ones seeking help or if you truly want to find a solution and get clean.
