Who can I refer to Triora?

Triora’s addiction treatment is suitable for adults (men and women) who:

  • Are suffering from an addiction to drugs such as cocaine and cannabis and/or alcohol, and/or behavioural addictions such as gaming or gambling;
  • Can afford our private addiction treatment;
  • Are motivated to discontinue their substance use or behavioral addiction, and are also willing for example to stop smoking;
  • Are prepared to participate in self-help groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous, Cocaine Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous;
  • Do not have too many difficulties in other areas of life (housing, money, work, or relationships); and
  • Can return after treatment to a reasonably structured life.

Our treatment is less suited to people whose primary addiction is:

  • Sex addiction - there are mixed groups at the clinic; or
  • Food addiction - we do not control cooking and eating.

Our addiction treatment is not suitable for people who are:

  • Homeless. Returning home is part of our treatment. We do not provide housing.
  • Suicidal.
  • Unable to control their aggression: the treatment environment at our clinic must be absolutely safe.
  • Physically unable to take care of themselves: a fairly high degree of independence is expected.
  • Have poor social, emotional or intellectual development: our treatment programme sets quite high demands.

Mental health problems

People with mental health problems can only be treated by Triora when these would not prevent subsequent outpatient treatment.

Joaquín Descals Gilabert, Triora Alicante’s consultant psychiatrist and head of department and Carlos Sánchez Menéndez, Triora MonteAlminara's psychiatrist, conducts the admission assessment preferably in person at our clinics Spain. Assessments can also be completed via our online system, Karify, and by phone.

The assessment includes evaluating whether there are any co-occurring disorders such as ADHD or mental health issues such as depression, anxiety or bipolar disorder that need to also be addressed. These will then be treated simultaneously with the addiction to ensure the best possible outcome for our patients.

What does Triora’s addiction treatment include?

For full information about the types of therapy Triora provides and what is covered by our programme, visit the following pages:

Family and relationship counselling

Triora recognises the importance of involving key relatives or loved ones in our addiction care. It is our preference that family and friends are involved wherever possible. Family visits are permitted and encouraged at agreed times.


Triora can provide short residential detox at our clinic for less serious cases only. Patients must be clean and sober before treatment can start.
