Simple Steps to Sobriety

The admission process for coming into treatment at The Marbella Sober Home is streamlined and straightforward. As well as advising you on treatment, we provide information on flights, visas, and anything else you may need to make your preparations as stress-free as possible.

1. Initial inquiry

When you call or email The Marbella Sober Home, you will first be in contact with our friendly admissions team. They will speak to you on the phone, answer all your questions, and guide you through your treatment options. You are welcome to call or email at any time for further guidance after this initial conversation.

2. Telephone assessment 

A senior staff member will call you at a pre-arranged time to get more details about your substance abuse, medical, and personal history. This call is confidential. The staff member will be able to answer any detailed clinical questions you may have. The information you provide prepares us for your arrival so we can be primed and ready to help you from the moment you walk through the doors of The Marbella Sober Home.


3. Payment and Travel Arrangements

We will send you an invoice with our bank details, and once you’ve paid the full amount by bank transfer, we will work with you to arrange flights. We offer an online Forex Exchange for ease of purchase. 


4. Arrival in Spain

You will be greeted shortly after disembarking the aircraft once you have walked through passport control and collected your luggage. You will be identified with a name board and the recent photo you have provided. Rest assured they will maintain the utmost respect for your confidentiality whilst in all public spaces. You will then be able to relax as the car service transports you to The Marbella Sober Home.


5. Arrival at The Marbella Sober Home

You will have a thorough check-up with our doctor and will then go through the intake procedure which includes receiving your personal treatment schedule and touring the home and surrounding area.


6. Treatment 

As soon as it deemed appropriate by our medical team, you will begin your treatment, including EMDR therapy and one-to-one sessions with your personal therapist, as well as all other elements of the program.


7. Aftercare

Towards the end of treatment you will work with your counselor to write an aftercare plan, where you can begin to recoup the cost of your treatment at The Marbella Sober Home simply by staying sober.
