Addiction is a disease, not a moral failure.

At Sanctuary Mauritius we do not define people by their addiction; everyone is so much more than an addict. We’re Mothers, Fathers, Sons and Daughters; we are doctors, engineers and carpenters.

Most of us are excellent at many things in our life, so why should we be identified by one part of it that is not going well? A person with diabetes is a diabetic but that doesn’t define their life and future, it means they have a disease that needs treatment and lifelong care, addiction is no different.

Since addiction is a complex disease it requires complex addiction treatment. At Sanctuary Mauritius we are here to help.

We take a holistic approach to treating addiction, please don’t confuse holistic to mean non-medical, in the case of Sanctuary Mauritius we take a medical approach to treating the disease of addiction with complimentary Eastern treatments in order to treat the whole person; mind body and spirit. If you are struggling with addiction, call us now, we are here to help.

The Founder

Dr Siddick qualified as a medical doctor at Dublin University and worked for several years in the UK National Health Service.

Feeling a need to expand his knowledge into different systems of healing, he travelled eastward, studying in France with the father of modern auriculotherapy (ear acupuncture), Dr Paul Nogier, a man who could cure many diseases just by inserting needles into the patient’s ear.

Later he travelled to the Far East, the birthplace of healthcare, to study Ayurveda in Sri Lanka, and Acupuncture in China, Hong Kong and Singapore. For the past 35 years he has been using his vast knowledge and clinical skills to treat patients suffering from a wide spectrum health issues including, stress-linked conditions, chronic pain, chronic disease, addiction, physical and mental burnout as well as traditional medical needs.

During Dr. Siddick’s career, he has studied and treated patients suffering from addiction, substance abuse and misuse as a regular part of his practice. With a strong belief in blending modern medical practice and traditional Eastern medicine he brings a professional holistic approach to treatment that is unique in the world. At Mauritius Rehab Dr. Siddick is on site daily and personally treats clients with regular counseling sessions as well as looking after their medical needs.

Why Us?

At Sanctuary Mauritius, we have a team of doctors, psychologists and counselors who are highly trained in treating addictions. We work together with a team of holistic therapists to help the patient regain his balance within a short time. Based on lab results, identified deficits can be restored and the brain biochemistry can be balanced, thus relieving the cravings and dependency of the addiction. We offer daily classes of yoga, tai chi, meditation and acupuncture to help rebalance the mind-body-spirit, as each patient has an individually designed program to give him optimum benefits within a short time span.
Patients fly to us from all over the world seeking treatment. They come in with broken souls, exhausted physically and mentally from the stress of lying, hiding and denying. Our greatest satisfaction is to drive them back to the airport after a few weeks, renewed, positively recharged, at peace and at ease with themselves and looking at a fresh future.
