Located on 400 beautiful acres in the Australian bush, Heal For Life Foundation offers healing retreats and specializes in childhood trauma treatment.
About Heal for Life Foundation
Opened in 1999, Heal for Life Foundation believes the vast majority of people who suffer from addictions, depression, anxiety, and other mental illnesses share a common background of childhood trauma or abuse. Heal for Life Foundation is a private retreat that focuses on treating traumas and co-occurring disorders for men, women and children through holistic measures. Heal for Life Foundation has a recovery model called T.R.E.E. (trust, release, empower, educate). The core of the model is the belief that emotions suppressed at the time of trauma must be released for long-term neurobiological changes to occur. Their model also recognises the important contribution of Psychoanalytic, Rogerian, Systemic Family, Transactional Analysis, Gestalt, and Emotionally-Focused Therapy. Heal for Life Foundation does not do group therapy because they do not want clients sharing their stories and risk vicarious trauma or re-traumatization. Heal for Life Foundation provides educational sessions, webinars, and peer support.
Heal for Life Foundation is set on 340 acres of beautiful Australian bush land. The land has its own fresh water dam. This property offers clients 3 private venues for recovery. The natural setting creates a peaceful environment that helps promote recovery. There is an adult healing center that was the original service center. This facility has a large open plan, all beds are single beds, and clients are asked to bring their own linens and towels as well as any bathroom supplies needed. The kids’ camp is a teen women’s healing center. This center has a large open floor plan dining and living room and 4 double bedrooms with 3 bathrooms. Heal for Life Foundation also has a teen men’s healing center that has a large open floor plan and 5 large bedrooms that are shared. There is a game room, pool table, and tennis table. All facilities are spread out over the acreage, and clients can enjoy water recreations, the natural serene environment, kayak, and wander the trails.
