Eleusis is dedicated to alternative treatment of alcohol and drug addiction through the use of pioneering Ketamine psychedelic psychotherapy. Our Wellness Enhancement and Longevity Learning (WELL) program combines this powerful technique with other innovative therapies in our unique addiction treatment program. The residential center at Eleusis promotes the physical health, psychological well-being and spiritual growth of our clients, with the goal of facilitating their full and sustained recovery from alcohol and drug addiction.
Eleusis is committed to helping our clients achieve recovery from alcoholism and drug addiction and maintain lifelong sobriety. By using the combination of alternative addiction treatment methods available at Eleusis, our clients learn to take charge of their own recovery by learning to take charge of their own health.
The objectives of the WELL program include:
- Optimization of lifestyle
To a great extent, lifestyle habits strengthen our ability to maintain sobriety, while determining both our wellness and our longevity. Clients in the WELL program learn habits that reinforce their recovery from alcoholism and drug addiction and enhance their overall health and well-being.
Eleusis advocates true addiction recovery through prevention, which is also the key to wellness and longevity. In the WELL program, our clients learn lifestyle strategies for overcoming substance use disorders and preventing psychosomatic illnesses and degenerative diseases.
- Psychospiritual growth
The program's alternative alcohol and drug addiction treatment approach, Ketamine psychedelic psychotherapy,, is pivotal to the process of recovery. The powerful technique expands the mind, accelerates psychospiritual growth and can facilitate self-healing from alcohol and drug addiction.
Eleusis is dedicated to helping our clients take charge of their own recovery from alcohol and drug addiction and their continued health beyond — not just for a season, but for a lifetime.
Overview of the WELL Program
Eleusis offers the three-week-long residential WELL program, an intensive growth-oriented psychotherapeutic program that uses unique experiential techniques in a controlled, medically supervised and secure environment. We designed the program to facilitate personal lifelong-lasting transformation through an innovative combination of:
- Profound transpersonal peak experiences
- Intensive encounter groups
- Various alternative therapeutic techniques
- Interactive educational processes
Grounded in the principles of preventive medicine, the program guides participants in making a rapid transition to an optimal healthy lifestyle of longevity and wellness — by adding years to their life and life to their years.
The pivotal experience in the WELL program is the advanced innovative technique of Ketamine Psychedelic Psychotherapy (KPP). To complement this powerful entheogenic experience, the WELL program incorporates a variety of additional alternative therapeutic techniques, such as yogic stretching, energy cultivation, guided imagery, growth-oriented encounter groups, Holotropic Breathwork and more.
The WELL program is designed as a growth-oriented program and is based on the therapeutic principles of Existential and Transpersonal Psychologies.
