Welcome to Phoenix Individual Retreat

Treating one client at a time
Are you, or someone you know, at a point where you know things have to change? Perhaps you are searching for more peace, fulfilment and a sense of purpose?

Phoenix Individual Retreat offers a place of sanctuary and safety, a place for people to recover, to re-build and to restore physical and mental health and well-being. Our bespoke treatment programs are delivered entirely one-to-one, with an entire team of practitioners and support workers at your service. No groups, no shared facilities.

Each client enjoys their own exclusive and luxurious villa accommodation in the warmth of the Spanish sunshine, including a personal butler/chef and offering complete and assured anonymity. Put simply, we offer a complete retreat from the pressures and strains of everyday life..

Luxury Rehab & Treatment in Spain

Phoenix Individual Retreat was born from a single-minded vision: to provide clients with the most luxurious, confidential and effective treatment for addiction and other disorders. We offer a safe space, a sanctuary away from the pressures and stresses of everyday life in which clients can address their problems and create a pathway to a healthier and more fulfilled life. In other words, the chance to rebalance, re-focus and renew. We are a diverse team of professionals who together combine many years’ experience working within the fields of business, addiction recovery, medicine, trauma, psychiatry, healing and therapy.

The Phoenix Programme was created as a result of our shared commitment to the highest standards of care and our shared frustration at current treatment provision, which all too often is driven by a ‘one size fits all’ approach rather than a response to individual client needs. We treat clients whose high profile or personal circumstances demand complete confidentiality and discretion.

Living at the Phoenix Individual Retreat

There is no more a ‘typical’ day at the Phoenix Individual Retreat than there is a typical ‘client’. That is because each guest will be following their own Phoenix Pathway which will have been designed exclusively for them, based on a detailed analysis of their medical and psychological history.  However, what every day has in common is that it is another step on the journey to a happier and more fulfilled life.

Every client's Phoenix Pathway is unique and the pace of their journey is set by their individual needs and preferences.

However every journey at Phoenix will involve a range of therapies and treatments, all designed to complement each other and treat the mind, body and soul.

5 Star comfort during your time at Phoenix Individual Retreat

5 Star comfort

During your time at Phoenix Individual Retreat, we want your accommodation to feel like home: to offer you a safe haven, a place of sanctuary where you can relax, recover and re-energise. Situated near the foothills of Sierra Blanca in the beautiful Andalucian sunshine, your villa will be tastefully furnished to the very highest standards and offer everything you need in terms of luxury and comfort.

Outside, you will be able to enjoy the beautifully landscaped grounds, taking in the magnificent views and enjoying a relaxing dip in your private pool. Of course, if there is anything you need to make your villa feel even more like your home, we are happy to arrange for residences to be adapted to suit your personal requirements.
Discreetly located and benefits from round the clock security - Phoenix Individual Retreat

Discretion and security

Although your villa will offer you complete privacy, a member of your treatment and well-being team will be on hand whenever you might need them, twenty-four hours a day. Your residence is discreetly located and benefits from round the clock security. For many clients, their villa provides the perfect haven and they rarely leave the grounds during treatment.

For others, we can arrange for external activities to allow them to enjoy the beauty of Sierra Blanca accompanied, at all times, by a member of their personal team. In addition to therapists and medical experts, each client has their own personal butler/chef who will provide delicious, healthy meals according to their particular preferences and nutritional needs, all sourced from the freshest local produce.

The Phoenix Programme

For clients struggling with misuse or addiction disorders, the Phoenix Programme will lie at the heart of their treatment. The culmination of decades of experience, working with thousands of clients suffering the misery of addiction and psychological disorders, the programme allows clients to build new lives beyond their wildest imaginations. Its purpose is to allow people to leave their old habits and behaviours behind them and to emerge from treatment with a new outlook and all the tools they need to live a life freed from their former problems. The Phoenix Programme is a unique and proven methodology, based around 7 core stages.

The 7 Stages of the Phoenix Programme - Luxury Rehab & Treatment in Spain

The very first stage of the process is to clearly identify the exact nature of the problem. In many cases, there may be multiple underlying issues behind the primary addiction or disorder and this stage is all about clearly revealing the scope and scale of the problem before proceeding on to treatment.

Stage 2 is all about exploring the client’s value systems and understanding the things that really matter to them on a spiritual or emotional level. By aligning their recovery against these core values, the chances of a successful recovery are increased significantly, resolving and removing any internal conflicts between actions and beliefs.

In Stage 3, clients make a clear and unambiguous commitment to themselves and their recovery from addiction or psychological disorder. For many clients, this is the key moment on their recovery journey.

Stage 4 involves a very thorough and searching exploration of the past, to help clients understand exactly what has brought them to this point in their lives.

In Stage 5, clients work through their past behaviours and actions revealed in the Analysis phase, modifying where appropriate and making clear plans for the future.

Stage 6 completes the process of change. By this stage, clients are ready to completely throw off the past, rejecting any feelings of guilt or shame and clearing the way to a new future.

Finally, Stage 7 is the point at which clients are ready to re-engage with life, continuing to work on their recovery, The amount of time clients spend on each stage will depend completely on their individual situation and circumstances. All treatment is delivered 1:1 – never in groups – and is completely tailored to the individual.

Client Stories

Discreet, luxurious and effective treatment
Alcohol addiction: a professional's perspective I have worked with many alcoholics and addicts during my career although there is one client who I will always remember; she had everything life could offer – fame, good looks, fantastic wealth – although she seemed hell-bent on destroying herself completely through alcohol. I lost count of the number of times I saw her, pale, sweating, shivering…and absolutely adamant that this was it, that she was going to stop for good this time.  Read more
Drug addiction: coming to my senses Coke had been a part of my life for so long that, looking back, what happened to me seems almost inevitable. Everyone I knew did it. It was a part of every social occasion, every dinner party, every night out. And life was good. Or it felt so at the time. But then the fun went out of it, my health began to suffer, work began to dry up, I stopped going out, stopped seeing people. Basically I stopped living. I didn’t realise at the time but I was so close to losing everything.  Read more
Gambling addiction: the grim reality I grew up in a very strict household, where gambling was totally frowned upon, which is perhaps why it seemed so exciting when I first started betting and visiting casinos. For me, gambling started out as something glamorous – dressing up for a day at the races or an evening at the casino – and being able to shrug off losses whilst lavishly celebrating successes was all a part of the game. It wasn’t even about the money, because it didn’t seem to matter if I won or lost   Read more

Working together

Because of the importance we place on confidentiality and anonymity, we don’t advertise our services and many clients come to us through word of mouth or on the recommendation of an existing medical, psychiatric or psychological professional.

Our teams will work closely with a client’s existing healthcare teams, both at the point of referral but also providing regular updates on the client’s progress.

When clients are ready to leave Phoenix International Retreat we will provide a comprehensive report on their treatment programme, as well as liaising closely with their healthcare teams on aftercare solutions.


When clients leave the Phoenix Individual Retreat they do so with a completely new outlook and perspective, as well as a suite of strategies and coping mechanisms to help them thrive in their new life. However, re-engaging with the outside world can be a very dangerous time which is why we offer one of the most comprehensive aftercare packages in the world to ensure that clients continue their recovery journey long after leaving the Retreat.

By playing an active role in the creation of the after-care plan, clients stay actively involved in their ongoing recovery from addiction or behavioural disorders and are able to focus on their long-term goals, whether personal or professional.

The Phoenix Pathway

Each client follows their own, unique Phoenix Pathway, under the direction of Programme Director and Founder Chris Spencer, who has many years’ experience in helping high profile clients change their lives forever. We chose Southern Spain as the location for our retreat both for its natural beauty, but also for the complete security and anonymity it offers clients.

That is why all of our treatment is delivered one to one, never in groups, and is tailored uniquely to each client. It is also why every client enjoys a secret and secluded private residence, providing all the luxury and comfort to soothe and restore the physical body whilst they work on addressing their mental health and well-being.
