The Causeway: The World’s First Private Island Rehab

  • 25 july 2008

The Causeway is the world’s first private island rehab facility, offering treatments for alcohol and drug addiction, stress and overworking and general psychological problems. Located off the Blackwater Esturary in Essex, just 30 minutes from central London, the retreat is only accessible by helicopter and an ancient causeway road that is visible for just an hour a day at low tide. Offering complete privacy within a 350 acre island, the Causeway charges a £5,000-£10,000 weekly tariff dependent on what type of accommodation you choose (the fee also convers meals, 24 hour medical care, daily therapy, personal training and recreational activities like yoga and pottery). Visitors can either stay in The Village made up of 2 and 3 bedroom houses where living accommodations are shared, The Manor house with private 5 star rooms or, an extension of that, The Cottages, which offer more discrete lodgings for individuals or couples. There are sports facilities available if guests wish to play some tennis or go fishing for an afternoon and Causeway can even arrange one-to-one personal training sessions with the likes of Linford Christie. After their stay, which can range from 2 weeks to 2 years, the retreat and its staff provide free after care for a year to help guests maintain their new and improved lifestyles. Amy Winehouse, of course, has already been and gone.
