Camino Recovery

Residential Centre in Southern Spain


The Camino Recovery Centre is an intimate facility which runs 30- to 90-day residential programmes to treat an array of addictions – alcohol and drugs, eating disorders, compulsive gambling, sex – as well as prevalent co-morbid conditions such as trauma and depression. The Centre is housed in a large, private Spanish villa, with a pool and spa set in exotic gardens; a few minutes’ walk from the beach at San Pedro.
The centre provides medically supervised detoxification for drug and alcohol addiction. It has a high calibre team of clinicians – psychiatrists, doctors, therapists and nursing staff – with specialist knowledge and 30 years’ experience in the treatment of addiction. The clinical team addresses the condition as a progressive illness that affects the whole family. It also believes that addiction is often rooted in a history of abuse and traumatic exposure – a view supported by a large body of recent research.

What Makes Us Special

The Centre’s Programme Director is American psychotherapist, Don Lavender BA., M.Div. Don has held clinical management and consultative positions in some of the most effective treatment centres in the world including Sierra Tucson and Cottonwood in the US.
The centre is one of the only treatment facilities in Europe using Equine Assisted Psychotherapy as an integrative part of its programme.

A four day Family Programme is held each month where family members or friends are a part of the recovery process. The most effective treatment facilities in the world have strong family programmes.

A clinician will pick clients up from the airport, offering a gentle introduction on the 45-minute drive to the recovery centre.

The centre prides itself on being able to give each client highly individualised care and a tailor-made treatment plan because there are only eight beds. It is a place of peace and recovery where clients are treated with dignity and respect. The centre is open 365 days a year. Families and friends are able to visit on Sundays.
