Learning to live without addictions

The Victoria Program is a Medical and Psychological Therapy to overcome Dependency on Alcohol and/or other substances, based on the Cognitive-Behavioural Methodology and directed to the Prevention of Relapses. It is developed throughout three phases:

 

1. Admission

  • A series of individual and family online sessions of Information, Motivation and Assessment.

 

2. Treatment

  • Ten days of Therapeutical Retreat, in a Luxury Hotel,  with our unique Methodology.
     

  • This process is carried out in groups of four to eight people, with a permanent medical and psychological Treatment Team, in a calm and comfortable Health and Wellness Resort located nearby Marbella, Spain.

 

The therapeutic components of the Program are:

  • The ABC of Addiction.- Group sessions on Behavioural Analysis of drinking alcohol, or using other drugs. This process will help the client to have a better understanding of the problem and begin to identify the solutions.
     

  • Education.- Group sessions, with the help of a varied sellection of audio and video materials, to enphasize the consequences of drinking, or other drug abuse.
     

  • Relaxation & Stress Management.- The emotional discomfort is often the trigger of a relapse. In these sessions the client will learn a simple and effective procedure of physical and mental relaxation, along with visualization techniques designed to successfully prepare them to overcome risk situations.
     

  • Cognitive Therapy.- A series of lectures on cognitive techniques that teach the clients how to manage, and overcome, their negative moods, i. e. stress, depression, low self-esteem, etc.
     

  • The New You.- Individual sessions of personal goal planning to help the clients initiate the changes necessary when returning to daily life.
     

  • Relapse Prevention.- Group sessions that are specifically aimed to teach clients how to identify the High Risk Situations and to develop and practice positive alternative behaviours.

 

3. Follow-on
 

  • Individual and family sessions to consolidate the changes, to supervise the evolution and to prevent relapses. 
     

  • The Client continues for at least a year with non-residential consultations, with the same therapist, if possible, who took care of their Admission Phase.
