Here are some of our most frequently asked questions.

At Noosa Confidential, we pride ourselves on being more than a ‘rehab centre’. We are a world-leading private treatment option for those looking to take charge of their mental and physical health.

Since launching in 2009, we continue to be privately owned and operated and have built a large, dedicated team of highly qualified and registered medical practitioners.

We are constantly reviewing new and emerging global practices along with scientific research allowing Noosa Confidential to stay at the forefront of proven strategies and results.

Our tailored, highly-personalised treatment programs are created just for you and are designed to address your own unique struggles and achieve your specific goals. Let’s make a change today. Get in touch with one of our friendly team members to discuss your treatment options.

Our tailored programs take into account your specific struggles, goals and any of the concerns raised by the people in your life. Our highly qualified team of registered medical practitioners are caring, empathetic and dedicated to helping you achieve real results.

We assist our guests with a range of conditions including alcohol and substance abuse, prescription medication addiction (painkillers) and illicit drug addiction. We also specialise in treating post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), trauma and grief along with a variety of mental health struggles including depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), bipolar disorder, eating disorders and ​​comorbid and co-occurring disorders.

Where possible, our programs include a preparation component prior to your arrival which helps get you started on your recovery journey. Following your stay at Noosa Confidential, there is also comprehensive telehealth aftercare support for 12 months once you have returned home.

As our name suggests, we are committed to ensuring your confidentiality and we want our guests to feel comfortable, safe and supported during their stay. To help achieve your recovery goals, all of our personalised programs are delivered exclusively one-on-one by our large, medically-informed and integrated team using advanced evidence-based practices to achieve sustainable well-being.

You will never be asked to share with other guests nor will you ever be expected to join in group yoga or exercise classes. All your therapy, nutrition, exercises and activities will be designed in alignment with your values, beliefs, mindset and goals with nothing shared amongst a group during your stay.

Whether you’re taking full advantage of our gorgeous residential retreat and treatment areas or you’re strolling barefoot one-on-one along the beach for your therapy sessions, we’re here to make your stay comfortable while still achieving tangible results.

At Noosa Confidential, our programs consist of a very busy yet highly adaptable daily schedule that may change as you progress through treatment and as your needs change. This is unique to Noosa Confidential and is something we have found to be very transformative for our guests.

There is no such thing as a typical day as we don’t offer a one-size-fits-all generic approach and instead, tailor each session and activity to your goals.

We aim to replicate the working week with Monday to Friday kept busy, Saturday mostly activity based and Sunday utilised for relaxation. During the week, you will have up to six sessions per day with extensive time

We are a friendly, caring and empathetic team and have created a welcoming and inclusive environment for our guests. Anyone who wants to improve their mental and physical health along with their overall well-being is welcome at Noosa Confidential.

Many of our guests have already proactively sought solutions elsewhere but may have found these other treatment options to be inadequate and even ineffective when it comes to long-term, sustainable results.

Our guests travel from all around Australia and the world and come from a variety of backgrounds and cultures. No matter their differences, everyone who attends Noosa Confidential acknowledges their well-being is in some way compromised and they are willing to invest the appropriate time and energy to ensure a successful outcome.

Unlike most other health retreats and rehabilitation centres, at Noosa Confidential, we have no set arrival dates or times and will never force you to comply with an intake schedule. Our programs start from the moment guests confirm their intention to work with Noosa Confidential and it’s always our intention to allow clients to arrive at a time that suits them.

We only cater to a maximum number of five guests at any one time which means there is often an opportunity to be supported by our dedicated team prior to your arrival. This ensures you are best placed to get the most out of your tailored treatment program from day one without having to stick to any strict intake dates or preset schedules.

When it comes to the program duration, there is no set length of time that your treatment must/should take. We will partner with you to develop a plan that works with your goals and schedule to ensure you are best placed to achieve real, tangible results through working with our industry-leading team.

Detox is different for everybody and each approach should be unique as we aim to bring the client to both a physical and psychological level that allows them to actively engage with the treatment program. Because of this, we take a bio-individual approach to detox with personalised and tailored strategies that aim at attacking the problem from as many angles as possible.

We are here to assist the body in effectively purging itself of toxins by supporting the functions of the liver and kidneys through intravenous supplementation (IV), acupuncture and lymphatic drainage massage. On top of this, we also utilise infrared saunas, ice baths and gut-supporting nutritional advice.

Our detox protocols have proven to be extremely effective and are designed to ensure your safety and comfort. To assist this, pharmaceutical support can be leveraged, where appropriate, and is supported and monitored by our team of registered doctors and nurses.

Upon arrival, many of our clients are already undertaking prescribed pharmaceutical medication and it would be unethical and unprofessional to alter these without consultation with the prescribing doctors. Part of our pre-program is to connect with any existing practitioners to develop a truly integrated, holistic approach to recovery.

We know and understand that returning to ‘normal life’ after your stay with Noosa Confidential may seem daunting and scary. You have worked hard to achieve real, tangible results during your time and it’s normal to feel nervous and even fearful that the pressures of everyday life, family and work may have a detrimental impact on these newly-found benefits.

To help with your transition back into your daily routines, all our programs come with a 12-month post-treatment aftercare package. This is the industry’s most comprehensive telehealth support and has been specifically designed to be delivered remotely and help you as you continue along your recovery journey.

Your struggles and goals are unique to you and so should be your treatment options. At Noosa Confidential, we are dedicated to delivering bespoke treatment programs to our guests that have been expertly designed by our world-class team and are proven to achieve tangible outcomes.

Because of this, the cost of our programs varies significantly and we encourage everyone to reach out to our friendly team directly to discuss their own individual needs. With this in mind, we have non-residential/outpatient programs starting from approximately $11,500 with fully immersive residential options, including 12 months of post-program support, also available at a greater cost.

There are a range of ways our guests choose to fund their visit to Noosa Confidential whether that’s through self-funding, superannuation or hospital/clinic cover under private health insurance, where possible. There is also a selection of medical loan providers, none of which are affiliated with Noosa Confidential, that may be able to help you access the treatment you need to reach your physical and mental health goals.

Sometimes you just need to get away from it all, rest, recharge and take some time for yourself. Many of our guests travel from right across Australia and beyond, including New Zealand, Asia, the Middle East, Europe and the United States, for an opportunity to seek treatment and rehabilitation at our world-class residential facility.

Far more than just another drug and alcohol rehabilitation centre or mental health retreat, Noosa Confidential is more like your very own serene sanctuary with shimmering ocean views and vibrant gardens. World-class beaches, national parks and amenities are all only moments away with many of our guests taking the opportunity, where appropriate, for one-on-one sessions spent strolling along the sand or immersed in nature.

As a guest of Noosa Confidential, you will also be treated to your own private suite, with a bathroom, and access to shared dining and living areas. All these sumptuous spaces have been tailored to support your recovery and we’re conveniently located just a short drive from the Sunshine Coast Airport, with transfers included.

At Noosa Confidential, we strive to create an environment where you feel comfortable yet are still motivated to achieve your recovery and treatment goals. We are not a ‘lockdown’ facility and access to the outside world is encouraged, as opposed to many other providers within the industry.

It’s important to remember, you can leave whenever you like. With this in mind, the admissions process will be conducted prior to accepting a placement and it is designed to gauge your level of motivation and readiness. We may refuse admission if we are not confident a guest is willing to participate in the program.

During your stay, you are encouraged to work with our scheduling team to ensure you have times of the day to fulfil any work and/or family commitments without conflicting with the delivery of your program. Family visits are also encouraged, through working with the scheduling team, and you may even be permitted to bring your dog or cat, pending prior approval. Smoking, within a designated area, and prescription medication are also permitted where necessary.

From your initial enquiry, throughout your program and the aftercare support, your privacy and confidentiality will be treated with the utmost respect and care. We completely understand many of our guests value anonymity which is why we can guarantee your stay will be handled with discretion and professionalism.

All our programs are 100% tailored to your needs and are delivered within a one-on- one setting meaning you will never be asked to participate in group sessions, yoga or exercise.

At Noosa Confidential, we only cater to a maximum number of five guests at any one time and you are also treated to your very own private room and bathroom. Airport transfers are also included, further enhancing the quality of your stay and your peace of mind.

Firstly, if you are researching on behalf of a loved one, we applaud your care and attention and appreciate how difficult the process can be. We understand that while you are motivated to enhance the well-being of your loved ones, this motivation may not be shared and that can be incredibly frustrating and is a difficult situation to navigate.

It’s important to consider two key factors, does the person admit they have a problem and are they willing to consider treatment? The answers to these questions will have a significant impact on the approach you should take.

We encourage you to make a list of approximately 10 key features and benefits you’re looking for in a service provider. These may be things like ‘qualifications of the team’, ‘a private bedroom and bathroom’, ‘access to the outside world’ and ‘visitors’ etc. Once you have your list finalised, you can research service providers and narrow the list down to two or three who stand out based on your loved one’s requirements.

Now you have your service provider chosen and you have spoken to them about your individual situation, you can start planning the intervention with your loved one while keeping in mind the long-term and more immediate goals. This can be a complex process and one that we are willing to guide you through should you wish to speak to our friendly and experienced team.
