International Advisors

Our treatment model involves continuing the professional development of each therapist in their area of specialism, as well as periodic supervision to maintain high standards and perspective on the treatment of patients, the group of patients and interaction between team members.

Since its foundation Fundación Recal has been committed to maintaining this level of external supervision and continued professional development to ensure the excellence of its treatment.

To do so we count on the advice of prestigious experts in addiction treatment from the United Kingdom.

Majadahonda Council has a commitment to people and, in particular, the most vulnerable communities.

Families need the support of public institutions and in order to help those suffering from addictions, we have always fostered programmes from the CAID.

In addition, with our drive to improve and always offer excellent services we have supported Fundación RECAL by allowing the land where the centre is located in Majdahonda to be used for a therapeutic and residential space.
