The Palladium Private Team are excited to announce the completion of Stage 1 Upgrades to our accommodation cabins! Stage 1 also saw us add additional components to our holistic program, including:
Medically-supported detox | Trauma-informed remedial massage sessions, twice weekly | 24/7 onsite support from trained counsellors | Additional therapies including psychiatry, kinesiology, acupuncture and couples/family counselling | Enhanced Aftercare Program | Partnering with Release My Super to assist with accessing superannuation early for mental health and addiction treatment
We would like to thank those guests who were with us during the accommodation upgrade works – your patience, understanding and grace was wonderful to experience in real-time as various disturbances took place around us. THANK YOU!

The Palladium Private progam is individually designed for people who are
suffering from stress, depression, anxiety, alcohol or drug dependancy, PTSD or C-PTSD.
We have spent more than 20 years developing and refining our holistic, fully immersive, integrated program that commences with a residential stay of between two and twelve weeks. We are committed to making long term permanent changes for good in people’s lives which requires an equal level of commitment from each guest that attends our program. For long term change to begin, we customise daily schedules for you and limit the distractions and triggers from the outside world whilst teaching you how to really understand the core thinking and beliefs behind triggers and emotional symptoms that lead to unwanted behaviours and coping strategies.
What makes us different from other programs is what we include in our holistic model and the way in which we deliver it. After 20 years and over 5,500 clients, we have a 97.3% program completion rate*. We survey each client on departure, and in the months following the residential part of their program to rate their progress, the program delivery, retreat environment, therapists and therapies, and service delivery. The majority of past clients have successfully achieved long-term change and are now living a life they never thought possible. 99.3%* of past guests were completely satisfied with the delivery and outcomes achieved during their program.
Our team are committed to providing the highest quality of care which will help you regain your mental health. During your program we guide you through a unique learning process of observation, collection, evalution and interpretation of information, experiences and beliefs gathered throughout your lifetime, along with the current triggers inflaming your condition. In a sense, you become a student of yourself, an inquisitive learner reflecting on and researching yourself, objectively, accurately and compassionately. Ultimately, you take back the reigns over your condition and take back control of your life.

Prior to leaving Palladium Private, our team will sit down with you and formulate a personalised Aftercare Plan that ensures you will be connected with the services and resources you may need on your return home. The Aftercare Plan will address all the areas that have been identified as being crucial to your ongoing wellbeing and success.
Psychotherapist sessions continue via phone or video calls for up to six months after leaving the residential part of your program. During these sessions, your therapist will go over what was learnt and make sure it’s being applied for maximum effect after returning home. This solidifies and supports your new thinking patterns and core beliefs, whilst they’re reinforcing a a new and permanent neural network in the brain – so you become more and more competent dealing with stressors, triggers, challenging real-life situations and emotions.
Our team will spend dedicated time with you towards the end of your program to formulate your Aftercare Plan, which includes ongoing psychotherapy sessions, a pack of customised resources and check-ins with Duty Managers over the following six months.
The key focus of the Aftercare Plan is to engage with local supports so upon returning home, all appointments are made and relationships established.
The Aftercare Plan will be unique to each guest’s specific needs and circumstances. It may include, but is not limited to:
