Painless Medical Assisted Detox: Athens & Mykonos Facility
Giving up an addiction is not an easy task. Many try to stop on their own but fail due to physical withdrawal symptoms. This pain associated with your addiction is caused by the physical & mental disorders your body has physically become dependent on. The Poseidon Method uses the latest and advanced medical treatment to ensure your detox will be comfortable during each detox phase.
The first phase of our protocol is what we call the “Stabilization Period.” When you first arrive we, in most cases, are able to meet or slightly exceed your initial “habit” with our medication, which you receive every four hours in reducing doses. During these first days with us patients feel the same level of comfort as if you were totally satisfied by your drug of choice, yet with us you are in a safe environment. Your habit will be slowly minimized in gentle reductions. You will have a very pleasant feeling due to the fact that you will have an improved appetite and will be in a soothing ambience with caring people.
After several days you will enter what we call the “Reduction Phase.” During this phase you feel increased comfort. Your ability to sleep will improve, your appetite for food will grow, and you will be more social and animated, participating in discussions about starting a new and improved life. At the Poseidon Method, there will be no annoying rules to put a damper on the positivity that is inherent in the prospect of becoming clean. You will still be comfortably medicated but as the days go by, your dose will be going down. In this phase, many of our patients enjoy the option of calling for a massage to help with tension and stress relief. They also reward themselves with our in-house hydrotherapy pool to help with their relaxation.
Toward the end of your medical detox at The Poseidon Method you will enter what we call the “Twilight Phase.” During this phase, we introduce a uniquely compounded “Booster” medication which will quickly smooth out the end stage withdrawal pains which addicts find sluggish and bothersome. The “Booster” is an energy producing medicine, which will make you feel remarkably better.
Your Detox at The Poseidon Method will have been a pleasant relief and as a staff we will be working with you to determine what actions must be taken to create your best chances of remaining clean. On a physical level, you will be taking hydrotherapy for any muscle soreness, and we will educate you on our amino acid post-acute withdrawal formula which we have found helps addicts jump start their endorphin production. You will receive the Booster all during the “Twilight Phase” and will feel a sense of energy from this skillfully prescribed medication. After our medical staff clears your detox phase you will be able to participate in our full Freedom Model program to ensure long term sobriety. Please keep in mind that our detox program is designed under close observation from our medical staff and takes place in our Athens villa prior to your transfer to Mykonos island.

The Poseidon Method: Suboxone Treatment
The Poseidon Method is Europe’s first luxury rehab providing a “Safe Taper” Suboxone detox program. The medicine contains two active substances, buprenorphine and naloxone. Suboxone is used to treat dependence on opioid (narcotic) drugs such as heroin or morphine in drug addicts who have agreed to be treated for their addiction. Replacing dangerous alternatives such as methadone and Subutex, Suboxone is a much safer alternative If used properly.
With years of experience in the field of Addiction Medicine, our program director and psychiatrist Dr. Martha strictly monitors your Suboxone protocol to provide the safest and pain free detoxification possible. A recent review and analysis of several studies by the Canadian Agency for Drugs and Technologies in Health regarding the clinical effectiveness of Suboxone V. Methadone found that: Suboxone was more effective for reducing the use of opioid drugs, but methadone was more effective for keeping users in their treatment program. The main goal is to make your withdrawal symptoms at a minimum to non-existent level during this phase yet finding alternatives to Suboxone may vary depending on the patient’s health prior to admission.
Note*** This program is limited to in-patient detox only and will not be prescribed for a period longer than 10 calendar days to avoid dependency.
The Revolution In Addiction Treatment: The Poseidon Method
Cryotherapy Addiction Management Restoration
The Poseidon Method addiction treatment center is the only rehabilitation center worldwide that incorporates ancient Greek medicine with modern day medical technology to provide the most effective rehabilitation services possible. Cryotherapy treatment is provided after your detoxification or once the medical team approves you. Whole Body Cryotherapy is a process where you subject your body to extreme cold for a short period of time. During the process, your blood is enriched with oxygen, enzymes and nutrients while endorphins are released throughout your body. In the process, Whole Body Cryotherapy will help detoxify your body and boost your immune system. During your Cryotherapy sessions the usage of Ancient Greek aroma steam (Mastiha Oil) is released to intensify the cryotherapy benefits and basically “Freeze” your addiction in the past. Mastiha oil can only be found on the Greek Island of Chios and is mentioned throughout ancient Greek mythology due to its natural healing elements. In addition to Cryotherapy improving blood circulation, providing pain relief and assisting with weight loss its advancement in alternative addiction treatment methods is becoming the equivalent to acupuncture results.
Note** It is important to emphasize that cryotherapy should only be utilized after your medical detox phase and once our provider medically clears you. Cryotherapy is equivalent to mild to moderate exercise: the heart rate and blood pressure will increase slightly.

Equestrian Addiction Practice - Mykonos Island
The Poseidon Method incorporates equine-assisted psychotherapy techniques during your treatment program as an alternate to traditional treatment facility techniques. Our Mykonos Island horse stables are located close to Fokos Beach giving each client the ability to incorporate therapy sessions during horse beach trails.
Equine-assisted psychotherapy offers a unique approach to working with addiction and those with co-occurring conditions. A co-occurring condition, what is referred to as a dual diagnosis, describes someone who struggles with addiction in addition to having another mental health condition. This is quite common for those with substance abuse and addiction challenges, as the additional concerns can include a variety of things, such as anxiety, depression, OCD, or PTSD. The Freedom Model approach allows each patient to determine the frequency of these sessions and are not held to any attendance demands.
