THE WAVE ARABIA
Is a supportive treatment centre for teenagers and young adults. We are based in Malaysia and welcome families from the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) who are looking for a recovery program that is confidential and culturally aware.
The Care Your Loved One Needs
The Wave Clinic Arabia provides a specially designed treatment option for teenagers, young adults and their families, who are suffering from eating disorders, mental health concerns, addiction, or other issues affecting young people. No matter what treatment is required, they are safe with us and will receive the care and attention they need.
Our luxury residential facility is based near Kuala Lumpur, with direct flights from most major cities across the Middle East and North Africa. Accommodation is provided in individual, private suites for young adults.
Treatment programs are carried out in a private and comfortable home-from-home environment, facilitated by a team of international psychiatrists, psychotherapists and clinicians, and supported by a 24-hour nursing team. All the team at The Wave Arabia are specialists in working with teenagers and young adults.
The 10-week core program incorporates intensive group, individual and family therapy sessions, offered in Arabic and English, which are customised for young people who need professional support during difficult periods of their life. Their progress is continually reviewed throughout the program and reports are sent to family members, and if required to a family physician.
We can also offer extended stays when a medical and clinical assessment recommends further treatment and provide secondary/transitioning care for young adults who have successfully graduated from the primary treatment program at The Wave or at another centre where they have undertaken 12 week’s primary care.
In addition to our equipped onsite facilities, which include a full-sized indoor swimming pool, gym, sauna and jacuzzi area, young people are able to experience an exciting schedule of activities and cultural programs during their stay. Educational support is also available to young people who require individual tuition.
The Wave Arabia prides itself on cultural sensitivity both in treatment and leisure time. We have a team of chefs, dieticians and nutritionists, who are able to provide for all dietary requirements. We also provide facilities and time for prayer and accompanied visits to the local Mosque when clinically appropriate.
We encourage a dynamic, family-oriented, activities-based approach to recovery. Our programs are specifically designed for teenagers and young adults and customised to their needs.
