Introduction and Basic Services

Located in Patterson Lakes, Australia about 35 kilometers southeast of Melbourne, Bayside Private Retreat is a boutique luxury rehabilitation facility that specializes in treating clients with substance use disorders and those with co-occurring disorders. Bayside believes in getting to the root of the problem rather than merely addressing the symptoms. To this end, the facility offers a completely customized treatment program based on the specific needs of the client. The innovative approach addresses a client’s past and future triggers and provides a vast array of tailored programs including detox, several different residential programs and lifetime aftercare.

Facility and Meals

Counter to many facilities that take place in clinical settings, Bayside prides itself on providing comfort and privacy. To this end, the facility is situated on two acres of beautiful natural surroundings and provides an atmosphere of solitude and self-reflection. With only eight residents at a time and 14 staff, residents will never want for attention. In addition, clients have the option of a private room or to have a roommate. The luxury facility boasts a spacious floor plan, plush furnishings and a private swimming pool. Clients may use computers and phones on request and call family in the evenings. In addition, clients enjoy Chakra meditation, yoga and working out, all on site.

The culinary team at Bayside provides a nutritious menu with a focus on a healthy and well-balanced diet. Residents are provided with three meals a day, morning tea and snacks are always available.

Treatment Protocol and Team

Detox is provided on-site, if needed, and typically lasts between five and seven days. Clients in the detox program receive around-the-clock supervision from a physician and nurse. Before entering treatment, clients undergo an assessment that determines their needs and informs their individualized treatment. Residential treatments range in length from three days to three months, and each provides clients with an integrated program that utilizes classic therapies like CBT, Motivational Interviewing (MI), mind mapping and 12-step as well as holistic methods including Gestalt therapy, art therapy, physical wellness, anger management, yoga, massage and Pilates. While in treatment, residents are kept very busy with individual and group therapy, family therapy and workshops running from daybreak to nightfall.

Bayside believes that aftercare is paramount to a client’s sustained health. Once clients have gone through the 28 day program, they are offered free lifetime aftercare. Staff is in constant contact and former clients are welcome to drop in for classes on personal development, wellness, 12-step support meetings or even just a coffee.

The Bayside team is as compassionate as it is experienced. Many of the staff have had personal experience with addiction and are non-judgemental and understanding of the process. The team is comprised of skilled mental health therapists, counselors, a vast array of specialists like art therapists and yoga instructors as well as medical staff.

Bonus Amenities

Bayside provides a serene environment and wants clients to focus completely on their recovery. To this end, residents are not permitted to leave the facility while in treatment, unless scheduled in advance. Having said that, family is allowed to visit on Sundays, and group outings are planned where clients go fishing, hiking and to the movies.


Bayside Private Retreat is a top-notch treatment facility for clients stuggling with addiction and co-occurring disorders. The program is highly customized to the client, and with an 14-to-eight staff-to-client ratio, residents receive a great deal of personal attention. With the free lifetime aftercare and vast array of therapies, Bayside is a great option.
