Ararimu Lodge runs an intensive 3-week alcohol rehab treatment programme targeted at creating harmony between mental, physical, emotional and social health. This comprehensive lifestyle change residential programme, run for individuals or small groups, is perfectly suited for you to gain the tools you need to live a fulfilling life, reduce life’s stressors and cope with personal challenges.

Ararimu Lodge offers a chance for women to break away from the daily demands and influences of life at home, and enables women to have the freedom to focus on themselves with the space to explore a lifestyle change.

Ararimu Lodge caters for individuals and limited numbers. Specific emphasis is placed on self-reflection and daily self-care activities. An important aspect of the program is life planning and women are encouraged to explore personal aspirations.

Individual goals are discussed with recommendations for ongoing lifestyle choices to maintain the benefits gained from the program. Women are actively taught to utilize an individual daily journal as an integral part of their pathway to recovery. Each day is structured to establish a routine. Daily reflection through use of the journal promotes self-awareness and highlights progress during the treatment programme.
