Let our experienced team support your drug & alcohol recovery journey

Detoxing from alcohol and drugs is an important first step in your drug and alcohol addiction recovery journey. Our experienced medical staff determined the safest and most comfortable detox process for your medical history, drug & alcohol use and needs. We try and ensure the process is as gentle and quick as it can be, and nursing staff are onsite 24/7 during this process.

Clients receive daily massage to support your physical, mental and emotional relaxation during your detox.

Our friendly drug & alcohol workers, addiction counsellors and holistic therapists will work together to facilitate your rehabilitation. We help you face and resolve the challenges and habits that perpetuate addiction, and help you move in the direction of a life free from addiction.

Easily accessible from Bendigo

SDR welcomes clients from across Bendigo. Embark on your recovery journey with SDR, where luxury meets care. No matter where you’re joining us from, we cover your return trip to our team and welcome you with our exclusive limousine service, ensuring a seamless, stress-free transition to recovery.

A highly personalised addiction treatment centre

SDR provides services for up to 4 clients at a time to ensure your privacy and provide plenty of highly individualised 1:1 care. Our staff are trained to maximise the comfort and safety of your stay. We don’t believe that a one-size-fits-all approach works for everyone, which is why each client who comes to us benefits from a unique and tailor-made recovery program.

Clients come to us from all walks of life and the team at SDR really respect where you’ve come from and where you want to go. We don’t push an agenda on our clients, but support clients in making healthier choices that can benefit their relationships, work and dreams for the future.

Addiction tends to rob the addicts’ capacity to make real choices, in addiction individuals lives increasingly revolve around alcohol & drug use. Recovery is about reclaiming your capacity to make choices that actually work for you. Together, we will create a treatment plan that suits your needs & lifestyle and maximises your recovery beyond your stay with us.

Priority Admission

Waitlists to get into drug and alcohol detox and rehab can be lengthy, with some public centres having waiting lists of 6 months. We feel it is important to get the right help when you need and want it, which is why SDR offers priority admission to clients. Our clients typically enter our program within one week of their first contact with us.

We also understand that choosing recovery from addiction is a process, and we will support you through the contemplation stage of your recovery to help you make sure that SDR is the most appropriate next step for you.

What You Can Expect From Our 5-Star Service

The SDR team works together to offer a holistic approach to medically supervised detox and rehab.

Our medical team will assess your health and needs in order to create a personalised treatment plan for your detox and recovery journey.

To ease your detoxification process we offer conducive physical therapies such as massage, acupuncture and personal training to complement your medical interventions.

An in-house chef creates delicious and nutritious meals to your tastes and health needs.

We want clients to connect with the joy of living and reconnect to their reason for living.

Daily counselling, psycho-educational sessions and executive coaching will help you understand what created and maintains your addiction, but more importantly, what you need to do to move forward in your life and make the most of the possibilities available in this world. To help you connect with all that life has to offer, we have a range of enjoyable activities for you to discover, including golf, beach walks, kayaking, African drumming sessions, equine assisted learning and sound meditation.

SDR offers an invaluable first step in helping you create a life beyond the grasp of addiction.


Recovery is an ongoing process that benefits from ongoing support. One month of outpatient aftercare is included in all of our packages to help you ease back into life post detox and rehab. Aftercare is available regardless of where you live- meetings with our counsellors will be conducted online via a video conferencing program such as Zoom. For those interested in long-term support, our team will link you up with the most appropriate professionals and services in your local area.
