Holina Program

A slightly
different approach

Holina’s holistic approach brings to life a broad and healthy view that really meets the 6 primary human needs – certainty, significance, variety, love/connection, growth and contribution.

At Holina, we use this framework to provide a solution to the full range of addictive symptoms, while investing in the most beautiful location for recovery you’re likely to find in Asia and beyond. with the highest quality and prestigious facilities available.

This, combined with some of the world’s leading addiction specialists are some of the key components that lead to our client’s long term success.

The Holina therapeutic program is a combination of physical, cognitive, mental, behavioural, emotional and spiritual functionally alongside practical socially supportive activities and learnings.

CBT behavioural cognitive therapy

CBT therapy is a structured and time-limited psychological intervention that was proven to be effective in a wide range of psychological and behavioural challenges. With regard to addictions, CBT enables the adoption of new behaviours and the avoidance of old and harmful habits.

Through the CBT, the patient acquires and implements behavioural strategies that help them recognise the true value of addictive rewards, while developing strategies for productive and beneficial coping with poor moods, external and internal pressures, stress, environmental manipulations, internal urges and more (Ágoston, 2013).

CBT & DBT are most useful because they imprint new ways for the individual to synthesise their emotions appropriately and therefore come to the conclusion that a new behaviour is more appropriate for them. It requires repetition and therefore it contributes towards the higher success rates in clients that stay a longer period with us – 2 or 3 months+

Mindfulness meditation

Mindfulness meditation has been proven to be one of the most effective methods for long-term treatment and coping with addictive behaviours such as alcoholism, substance abuse, eating disorders, gambling addiction, sex and love addiction and other addictive behaviours and processes.

Addictive behaviours tend to chronically reoccur. Therapeutic interventions through mindfulness meditation show remarkable success in stopping addictive behaviour and developing much healthier behaviours.


Neuro Linguistic Programming is based on concepts and models developed by the world’s largest minds in psychotherapy. NLP is a method that allows people to examine the relationship between the mind (perception) and language (active thinking) and allows a person to change the reactions between them. Through linguistic thinking, the NLP method helps to rebuild forms of thinking and provides an opportunity to re-examine stored memories and how we process those memories.

NLP is a proven method of effectively dealing with triggers for use in dealing with traumatic thoughts and dangerous triggers.


The 12 step Program

The 12 Step Program was originally conceived and successfully used to treat alcoholism in the 1930s, and 90 years later it still hod the power to serve many millions of individuals around the world to remain is happy and healthy recovery. 

The 12-step approach is fully worldwide and uses the “addiction as a disease” model of thinking. Working with addicts requires a great deal of sensitivity to both mental and functional factors and the effects of addiction on family members.

Thanks to the ongoing success of implementing the 12 steps in the lives of addicts, the experienced Holina  team integrates the therapeutic approach in every aspect of the diverse treatment aspects.

The Holina Model

The combination of CBT, NLP, mindfulness, and the 12-step approach gives Holina the ability to develop with the patient high self-social and social awareness, developed life skills, patience and assertiveness. Through constant nourishment, the patient learns to be attentive to himself and develop a good and nurturing self-leadership that shows results in the field.


The benefits of combining the four approaches, deep listening and rich professional experience – all of which make Holina a safe space for recovery, to which addicts of different ages and stages of recovery – come to develop a better life and start a life that has deep value and meaning.


Phase 1 Detox
Phase 2 Understanding the Illness
Phase 3 Accepting the Solution
Phase 4 Taking action

Detoxification Is an initial detox phase that allows the body to clear the devastating effects of using drugs, alcohol and other destructive substances that fatally damage the body’s systems. The detox phase can take several days to a month and is tailored to the needs of the individual, accompanied by a doctor who specializes in addictions.

The recommendation of Holina professionals is to go through a process of at least three months to six months. The longer treatment gives a person the opportunity to recreate himself.

Phase 4 Taking action
Phase 5 Adopting new behaviours and patterns
Phase 6 Restoring the past and setting up the future.

The second therapeutic course begins from the end of the first month or from the actual physical cleansing. The initial period in Holina is the beginning of a new way of life, so the emphasis during this period is on listening and acquaintance.

First month: The first month is for recording. This recording allows instructors to absorb and absorb a person’s personal rhythm, their special qualities, which strengthen them worthy of cultivation, their special skills and skills.

real home

Home is where the heart is and when you leave Holina after successful graduating our full program, we know you’ll be leaving your heart behind. Holina is where you’ll feel recovered, belonging and complete.

So we have special arrangements with all who graduate from Holina to welcome them back every year for Aftercare at no additional treatment costs. 

Holina is home for all who choose to remain part of the family and to continue their ongoing process of recovery, personal development, transformation and empowerment.
Many of our residents arrive with a specific aim and expectation: they want to cease suffering from their addictions.
But what many do not know is that once they come into recovery and the suffering ends, that the true work begins and life takes on new meaning. This is an experience you will not want to miss. We know you will not want to miss it. Frequent contact with Holina and your fellow graduates could be the bright spot of your lives to come. 

The Holina Recovery Center offers a unique holistic combination of Western and Eastern approaches: The Western perspective provides a therapeutic angle looking back at your history, complimented by a coaching focus looking towards your future desires and goals. Meanwhile, the Eastern holistic activities apply a broader worldview that addresses many more all aspects of health, vitality and happiness.

Evidence from recovery centers around the world shows that the longer the treatment episode, the better the chances of long term success. So we encourage you all to consider staying for a minimum of 1 month and hopefully the full Primary Care program of 12 weeks.  

Holina has a strong and robust Secondary  Care program for people who’ve graduated the full initial Primary Care phase.
This is your opportunity to apply the mental, emotional & spiritual assets you have built with your own hands, step by step, in the previous stage of treatment.

The advantages of our Secondary Program are the opportunity to further develop the tools you’ve already begun discovering and to apply them in more areas of your life.  Therefore, a continuing therapeutic secondary phase is often a useful and important transition stage in recovering, healing and creating a new life.
