At Jintara Wellness and Rehab, our mission is to provide high quality, cost effective treatment to those suffering from, or recovering from substance abuse and/or underlying mental health disorders.
In order to accomplish this mission, we provide a variety of psychological, behavioral, general health, holistic and alternative therapy interventions that enable our clients the best opportunity to fully recover.
Jintara is for those people seeking a more discreet, intensive and comprehensive program than can not be found elsewhere else. Jintara boasts a tropical location and comfortable facilities, at a fraction of the price of comparable rehabs worldwide. We proudly state our fees on our website, so you can consider if Jintara is right for you.
Our program is evidence-based, and our team is experienced, skilled and flexible enough to tailor the program to best fit each individual client. All clients who come to Jintara should be willing to participate in both group and individual therapeutic activities. Clients will also be encouraged to look at the cause and root of their dependence, along with addressing problematic behaviors and behavioral patterns they may be experiencing. This is how we help build enduring recoveries, again and again.
Our core client demographic is 30 - 45 years of age, but we accept clients of any age that meet our assessment guidelines, as well as our terms and conditions. Our average length of stay at Jintara is 6-8 weeks.
At Jintara we offer four, six, eight, and twelve week structured programs, using a range of treatment approaches to complement the CBT core approach.
What is Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT)?
CBT has a strong level of empirical support for the treatment of substance abuse. It is a short-term, focused approach to help substance dependent individuals become abstinent.
It is a way of talking about:
CBT can help you to change how you think (“Cognitive”) and what you do (“Behavior”). These changes can help you to feel better. Unlike some of the other talking treatments, it focuses more on the “here and now” problems and difficulties. Instead of focusing on the causes of your distress or symptoms in the past, it looks for ways to improve your state of mind now.

How does it work?
CBT focuses on helping clients to
a) RECOGNIZE the situations in which they are most likely to use drugs or alcohol;
b) AVOID these situations when appropriate; and
c) COPE more effectively with a range of problems and problematic behaviors associated with substance abuse.
CBT can help you to make sense of overwhelming problems by breaking them down into smaller parts. This makes it easier to see how they are connected and how they affect you. These parts are:
Each of these areas can affect the others. How you think about a problem can affect how you feel physically and emotionally. It can also alter what you do about it.

The core group
The CBT program at Jintara will be done with a group of people.
Regarding the group therapy:
At each meeting you discuss how you’ve got on since the last session. Your group can help with suggestions if any of the tasks seem too hard or don’t seem to be working for you.
The strength of CBT is that you can continue to practice and develop your skills even after the sessions have finished. This makes it less likely that your symptoms or problems will return.
How effective is CBT?
As well as Group Therapy on a daily basis, you will also have 2 x 1 hour Individual Counseling sessions per week with your private Counselor. You will retain the same Counselor for your entire time at Jintara, so you don't have to repeat yourself and you can build up a rapport and confidence with your Counselor. If you feel you need extra individual sessions, just request them from your Counselor.
These individual sessions are core to understanding you and your unique issues and addressing them on a one-on-one basis. These sessions are private and confidential between you and your Therapist.
Your Therapist will bring you through the above experience, guiding you to decisions you make for yourself and ensuring you are supported.
