About Camino Recovery Rehab

Located in an impressive Cortijo below the stunning Sierra de Tejeda mountain range, Camino Recovery Rehab is a tranquil retreat on Southern Spain’s Andalucian coast. 

Camino Recovery Rehab

The intimacy of this family run center means that a high degree of personal attention is a given amdist a compassionate and caring environment, in a way that is often lost in larger facilities. Clients’ own families also have a significant part to play in the process and are encouraged to take part in an extensive 5 day family programme that is unique to Camino Recovery.

Clinical Team at Camino Recovery

Each member of the clinical team is qualified to at least Masters level and bring over 80 years of knowledge and experience from both USA and Europe using such diverse treatments as Equine Assisted therapy and EMDR in conjunction with a range of traditional and well established therapeutic processes.

Camino Recovery Process

While Camino’s sunny and peaceful surroundings are ideal for recovery, what sets Camino apart is its unique therapeutic process in the fields of behavioural health, process addiction and trauma treatment which is unrivalled in Europe.

What is Treated at Camino Recovery Rehab

Camino Recovery Rehab offers effective evidence-based (individualized) care addressing addiction, depression, anxiety, trauma, family, relapse and relationship issues delivered by experienced Masters degreed staff.

Weather Forecast for Camino Rehab



Camino Recovery specializes in equine assisted psychotherapy (EAP). In fact, their program director, Don Lavender, is a pioneer in the development of the therapy. Through interactions between the horse and the client, a therapist can help the client work through issues, often more effectively than talk therapy.



Therapists at Camino Recovery dig deep to address underlying causes to drug and alcohol abuse and mental health disorders. Using tools like equine therapy and EMDR therapy, they’ll gently guide you through healing from past traumas.



Over a 4 to 5-day family programme, the family gets to learn how they’ve been affected by their loved one’s behaviour and healthy ways to cope with relationships. The programme involves educational lectures, group therapy sessions and more.
