White River Manor (linked to https://www.whiterivermanor.com) is an exclusive addiction treatment centre founded in 2015. Owners describe it is an affordable, safe and protected environment to help guests focus on mind, body and soul recovery:

The centre has established itself as a leading facility for those seeking discreet intervention for addiction and executive burnout, helping many clients on their journey of recovery in stunning surroundings.

The newly refurbished main centre offers comfy lounges, an elegant dining room and fully equipped business centre

Its signature approach to treating addiction is not restricted to any specific religious denomination and therefore not centred around the traditional 12-Step programme.

Instead, guests benefit from several advanced and extensively researched therapy methods which are used in both individual and group therapy sessions.

This holistic approach incorporates cognitive behaviour therapy, eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing and dialectical behaviour therapy, as well as music and art therapy, psychodynamic therapy and mindfulness.

Family therapy, solution-focused therapy, pastoral or spiritual counselling and sober living and after-care support also feature in the programme.

Guests start their visit to the centre with a thorough consultation; each day begins with good eating habits, exercise and relaxation, then the hours are filled with both individual and group therapy sessions, quiet contemplation and time to process and work through the recovery process.

Luxury accommodation in a gorgeous garden setting, eating well and exercising plus sunshine and lots of outdoor space are what makes White River Manor extra special. Clients praise the warmth, compassion and professionalism of staff there, who include a psychologist, qualified counsellor, specialised nursing sister, therapy specialists as well as physiotherapists, physical therapists, dieticians, spa therapists and even a passionate game ranger.

It’s also highly affordable for international clients with the current exchange rate; for the same degree of luxury and exclusivity, guests could pay as much as three times the price in the UK or the United States.
