Recognising that you need help is the first step in recovering from drug or alcohol addiction.

At Zen, we assess all our guests using the DSM-IV Assessment criteria for drug and alcohol dependence.

A ‘Yes’ answer to three or more questions in the DSM-IV criteria within the last 12 months identifies an individual as being dependent on a substance. Do any of the following apply to you?

  • Increased tolerance over time
  • Withdrawal when stopping use
  • An increase in the amount you use over time and use for longer periods
  • A desire or repeated attempts to quit or cut down
  • Large proportion of time/activity spent using, obtaining and/or recovering
  • Social/ occupational/ recreational activities given up or reduced because of use or recovery
  • Continued use despite knowledge of adverse consequences

If yes, please call us on 0800 936 4357 to discuss this further and to undertake a comprehensive assessment.

Just by reading this, you’re taking the first step on your journey to recovery. If you’re ready to take the next one and get your life back on track, contact Zen Detox today 0800 936 4357.


Come see for yourself how different your life can be. Zen Detox Retreat is in Kumeu, just half an hour away from the hustle and bustle of Auckland. Set on 3.5 acres of landscaped gardens and mature olive groves, Zen Detox is the ideal rehabilitation centre to holistically focus on your recovery and improvement.

Our holistic therapy and addiction treatments include individual and group therapy, 12-step programme, yoga, nutritional guides, naturopathic guidance, massage, nursing care and medically assisted detoxification.

At Zen, our treatment philosophy represents a fusion of contemporary addiction medicine and clinical sciences with an immersion in the 12-step recovery program to treat all aspects of the person (holistically).

Family Care

Our programmes are designed to include families. This supports the treatment philosophy which centres on the belief that evidence based treatment for clients must be matched with caring services and connections for their families. We like to set up one-on-one meetings with clients and their family to discuss what every-ones goals and hopes are for the future. 


At Zen, we understand how important aftercare is to an individual’s recovery. We want to make sure our clients are as prepared as possible to leave our facility. This is why in their last week of treatment, staff and clients will work together to design an appropriate continuing care and relapse prevention plan. The staff at Zen will also remain in regular contact with our clients for the following 12 months – we are here for you every step of the way.
