Further Experiences

After 2 decades of rock n roll lifestyle partying and crazy antics i found myself stuck in an endless vortex of isolation and addiction, for the past 5 years i tried to deal with these issues myself but always ended back in that cycle, it was wearing me down and basically eroding my personality and my true happy self, i was at rock bottom and something had to drastically change. This time around i headed to Ubud in Bali and came across Scott and entered into recovery with his guidance which was not only from the 12 step program but also with a load of knowledge and wisdom and also a heavy leaning into spiritually, self love and Yoga and meditation. After 8 weeks at Scott's guidance i was refreshed and confident that i could enter back into the "normal" world with more skills at my disposal to deal with every day life and the stresses it can throw at you, i know now i can be sober and happy and don't need to pick up a substance to deal with situations or to even help me with "happiness" which i now can admit that it was an illusion. True happiness comes from mindfulness. Sobriety, healthy thoughts and a healthy diet all help me with that now. Please if any of you are struggling with addiction then i cannot recommend Scott enough! My life has completely flipped for the better and i have never been happier, Thanks mate you're a legend :)

Being in my 50’s and having reached a turning point in my life ,I thought it important to take stock and re-evaluate my health and wellbeing. After a very busy , difficult and emotional year I decided to research the very best of health and wellbeing facilities and programs available across the world with the intention of dedicating at least 1 month to relax, refresh and rejuvenate . Having been in recovery in the past and having recently fallen off the wagon I thought it was also time to address my inner health and take stock of long term alcohol addiction issues that had begun to re-enter my life. I began an exhaustive journey to find the right place and persons to address my personal issues. I could have selected any treatment/retreat, anywhere in the world as money was no object however results were paramount. I run an extremely busy and successful multidisciplinary development and design practice . Aside from the type of treatments I was seeking, my anonymity and flexibility of approach to my issues were paramount in selecting an appropriate retreat and solution . After much research and deliberation I decided to travel to Ubud Bali and work with Scott Bauer and his team to address my needs. It turned out to be the best decision and investment I have ever made. I found I had an instant affinity with Scott and his approach to life and addiction counselling . Being of similar age to me it was comforting to know that Scott had not only “walked my walk” but had a wealth of knowledge and experience in addiction counselling and spiritual awakening. His knowledge across a broad range of treatments and his connection to Bali and the myriad of health and wellbeing opportunities which abound there are endless and invaluable. He greatly assisted in finding me the most appropriate accommodation for my stay and constantly evolved a program which thoroughly met my needs. Scott is a true gentleman in every sense of the word and his kind, sensitive and pragmatic approach ensured that my stay in Ubud , Bali under his guidance was not only mentally and spiritually enriching but was also full of adventure and surprise and provided me a delightful respite from the humdrum of my working life . He re acquainted and equipped me with various practices of Yoga, Pranayama breathing, meditation and spiritual awakenings which I have now incorporated into my daily life and which I know will fortify and enrich my life moving forward. Scott touched my life in a profound way and has restored my faith in humanity. I wish Scott the very best and the longest and healthiest of lives and would not hesitate to revisit or recommend him to anyone in need of the most appropriate addiction counselling and or an unforgettable life changing and healing experience in Ubud Bali. An enormous thankyou to Scott and his extended team of practitioners and healers . Anonymous- Australia.

Misery and isolation were my normal for 18 years. In the end I communicated only by facebook or text. I never looked in the mirror and hadn’t had my photograph taken for years. A 45 year old, single mother, living back with my parents. I woke up every day at 3 am full of resentment, anger or fear depending on what story my head is attached to. I loathed waking up in the morning. I hated going to work and I constantly lied about a social life I didn’t have to excuse the daily hang over I did have. It took a long while to get to living in hell but I got there. Physically I was having horrific heart palpitations, the weight had crept on, motivation was almost gone but worst of all I was constantly agonising over who would look after my child when my premature death arrived. – and still I wondered “am I an alcoholic”?! That was 6 months ago – since then I have moved to the other side of the world to my dream place, with my son. I have a job, I’m starting to make new friends. I am grateful, content, busy and out in the world. I have no fear of people or finances. I swim in the ocean, thank the universe daily for the beauty I’m surrounded by. I have an understanding of what is me and what is my disease. I look great, I feel great, I sleep well. I have my photograph taken, I can tell the truth and above all there are never enough hours in my day. Every single morning I wake up and feel overwhelming gratitude to be sober, optimistic and ready. I have a brand new future. The opportunities are infinite. How did that happen? Scott Bauer. That’s how that happened. I reached out and he was there. His patience, understanding, flexibility and huge heart was my “life raft” from hell back into the world. Scott doesn’t have a magic pil but he helped me to see the magic. The magic in the universe and the magic in my existence. I didn’t mean for this to be so long but if you have got to the end, thank you reading this and may you too experience time with Scott and find the peace in your heart that is waiting for you x Tina x

My experience was full on there . The Kundalini Hata Yoga what is one of the bricks of the treatment was bringing me in a nice and sweet spot every morning . Including the freedom wich was there from beginning of treatment and the fair treatment in all matters friendly, people and amazing land scene around me there was a comfortable connection with the trainer and the nature . The treatment is not to compare with the false locked up situations in other addiction treatments and gives a smooth transition. Real environment and real people , real love - and Yoga is the key 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

One of the most profound recovery experiences ever! Scott is a sage and speaks words of wisdom and encouragement with every breath he takes. The most inspiring man I have ever had the pleasure of working with. A shining light of recovery. The pleasure of doing recovery work in Ubud and it's beautiful surrounds and the added yoga and meditation sessions that he gives add to the serenity and spirituality of the whole process. It was a great leap of faith for me arriving from a completely different country but his teachings have become an integral part of my life and are implemented as tools of recovery taking me forward to a clean and serene future. Thank you Scott!!! 🙏🏻

My god daughter (26) has been struggling w/ buliemua & alcohol addiction for many years, successfully dealing w/ one or the others but never both. And most treatment centers will not take her if she’s needed help with both. I saw your center online and wonder if you would be open to working with her and what the cost is to be at your treatment center in Bali. Looks like a very spiritually healing place. -James

I came to Bali Addiction Treatment and Healing in October 2017, and it was a most timely decision. Having heard from a friend who had become clean and sober thanks to her time there with Scott Bauer, I had some idea of what to expect. However, I was apprehensive about giving myself totally to the program, about putting myself, and much of my freedom, into the hands of another person. But my fears turned out to be groundless - I found heart to heart conversation with Scott possible from day one, there was no ice to break. Scott's experience became apparent in how he shaped the program to suit my aspirations - he sensed, for example, my interest in tools such as yoga to assist in recovery, and added some appropriate reading and discussion on the practical applications of yoga in a broader perspective. He also worked skilfully with my areas of resistance, helping me to see what really worked for me in the program, and to not make an issue of areas I didn't resonate with so much. It was not all plain sailing of course, it is not in the nature of such an undertaking to be comfortable and entirely harmonious, but my overall positive experience led me to decide to stay on in Bali. I was able to continue, and deepen, my yoga practice and new living habits, benefiting from the facilities and contacts I had established during my weeks at BATH. When at last I came to leave Bali, I was sober and in vibrant health, with solid tools at my disposal to stay well. I was ready to return to the fray, and become once more a useful member of society. Thank you for your big heart and your insights Scott, and as you like to say, "Cinta Saja!"

12 months ago I arrived in Bali on the eve of Nyepi…a drunk. The streets were full of processions of amazing and mind blowing statues that had taken the Balinese many months to build. However, I was so consumed by my drinking that I could not see any beauty that surrounded me. All I could focus on was ensuring we could get to a bottle shop to ensure I had my supply of alcohol for the next 24 hours due to the Island shutting down during this time.
My life was no longer my life, I was being driven by alcohol in all I did and as a result I lost everything that was important to me. I realised that I could no longer continue this way but I was unsure what to do and was very very scared. In my drunken state I had been watching the emergence of an amazing organisation called USADA and something about this organisation touched me deeply. I sort to find out who was behind it. I had a gut instinct that this person was a safe person to talk to. I had never met this person nor would I have known him should he have walked past me in the street.
Once I had a name and a contact I reached out for the first time in my life and said “I NEED HELP”. I had no expectations of a reply as I was a total stranger. I received a reply, “I am here, I will help you.” I will never forget the shock and the tears of receiving that message! At the time I had no idea of BATH nor Scott’s connection.
One year later I am sober and in awe of the spiritualism and culture I am surrounded by. Since Scott and the BATH Team and USADA have entered my life he has shown me nothing but support and a path to recovery. He has guided me through making connections and more importantly has taught me I may not be responsible for my addiction, but I AM responsible for my recovery.
I will always be forever grateful to BATH and to Scott in all he has done for me and my life..
