Since November 2017 under the expert direction and stewardship of Dr Robert Walsh The Sanctuary Byron Bay has cemented its approach to perfecting and delivering their pioneering program to optimize the personal wellbeing of clients.


Since taking the reins at the Sanctuary Byron Bay treatment program capacity and modality has expanded exponentially in both reach and capacity to treat a complete range of substance abuse, addictive behavior and co-occurring mental health disorders.

Dr Bob Walsh and team at The Sanctuary Byron Bay are widely considered to be among the most pre-eminent treatment experts in the World.


The team at The Sanctuary are World Class specialists in the delivery of holistic treatment of substance abuse and co-occurring mental health disorders.

The holistic approach combines the very best of allopathic and complementary medical traditions and its little surprise the approach is often imitated, yet rarely bettered, even on a Global scale.


During the admissions process all practitioners and therapists meet to decide the best and most effective recovery pathway solution, and liaise on its effectiveness regularly, adjusting the modality to the speed and effectiveness of a clients recovery.

Professional Review of Sanctuary Byron Bay

The Sanctuary capitalizes on Byron Bay’s extensive bohemian beach-side bushland to create a luxury oasis in one of Australia’s most popular coastal towns. Clients can meander the rehab’s extensive grounds to encounter local wildlife, such as wallabies and goannas, before taking a well-earned relaxing dip in a private spa pool.


Privacy is the order of the day at The Sanctuary, and guests will never encounter another client. Requests for total calm and periods of splendid isolation will be respected, though most clients are appreciative of the 24/7 support and company of highly trained professionals throughout their stay.


Sleek private residences with local ‘Byronesque’ design touches await to immerse clients into a comforting and luxurious enclave of serenity.


Clinical experts at The Sanctuary Rehab deliver intensive treatment in this magnificent setting though they also recognize that some personal or corporate business demands must be attended to. To this end The Sanctuary can provide the following assistance:


  • Highly trained personal assistants
  • Business administration facilities such as a dedicated phone and fax line, conference call facilities, and broadband internet access.
  • Super fast wifi
  • Private and realistic regular contact with the business or agents
