”Today I can honestly admit, without any shame, that after having left the treatment early, that I relapsed. I was a drug user and I returned to what I knew. I would like to explain that the first time that I was in treatment I did not finish it, because I was not ready to be confronted with my attitudes. I did not want to admit this to anyone and I didn’t want anyone to be involved in my life. The lack of humility I displayed in facing my problem, led me to abandon the treatment after 2 weeks.
Everyone (Clinical Team) knew that I would relapse, however I didn’t believe them. As soon as I got home, my past cycle restarted. All the trust that my relatives had started to have in me was gone. I started to consume cocaine again and of course I started to steal again from my own family to maintain my addiction. My parents decided to be firm, and threatened to put me out of house.
Then I realised that I could not continue doing this and that I needed to make some choices.
I caught a plane and entered VillaRamadas GGZ. I was welcomed with open arms. Nobody told me “ I told you so”. This time they were even harder on me but it worked. I finished the treatment and I have never returned to my old way of life.
I now have a happy and fulfilling life. I know that it was only possible because of the Clinical Team at VillaRamadas GGZ.
Thank you for not giving up on me.“Read More
”As I am writing this, I am struggling for the words to express the gratitude I owe to this Villaramadas GGZ. After 28 days since my brother left VillaRamadas GGZ and i think of you every day.
Even living with the doubt if he will ever drink again, I can feel that in these five months there has been a miracle. You (VillaRamadas GGZ) have managed to do in eight months what we, the family and many doctors and clinics have failed to do in 25 years. Day by day, we are gaining faith and confidence in him. We believe that it was worth trying to help him over the last 25 years. We now know that if VillaRamadas GGZ had not helped us, my brother would still be drinking. Our family would be wearing black we, would be living in despair and wondering how we could have done more. I know that our Mother and Father, wherever they are, are so grateful, as am I and my family. VillaRamadas GGZ - You have done what we thought impossible.“
”Without a house, without the support of the family, without a home, without a job, without a personality, without anything… I cannot remember exactly when I started drinking, but I remember that it was always present at my parent’s house.
When I realized, I was with 44 years, but I seemed to have 90…I was lost. I was living on the street, surviving with the help of charities, when a childhood friend found me. He could not believe in my sad faith. He promised to help me and took me to VillaRamadas GGZ. I put up a lot of resistance, but the therapists never gave up on me.
Gradually, I am recovering the lost years and I will never have enough words to thank this friend who gave me a helping hand, but also to VillaRamadas GGZ that returned me to dignity.“
Time is our most precious gift.
VillaRamadas GGZ allows a guest to enter into a recovery programme without the constraints of time. We will work with the guest directly or the Health insurance provider to work within the time constraints.
The therapy will be paced at the guests pace and therapy will be interspaced with trips to the local area for sightseeing and leisure activities.
Private guests can do a VIP treatment of three weeks in a Luxury Suites.
On every level our treatment is private and individually.
From our online or presencial assessment, during your the stay in one of our residencies until the return home a guest's anonymity is important to our team.
We accept guests from independent referrals and via health insurance providers. All documentation is handled with sensitivity with our experienced Doctor and Admissions team.
Just as every guest has different disorders so is the solution has to be custom. The therapy team after their initial consultation will develop a specific programme for each guest. With only a phone call a guest can access VillaRamadas GGZ.
