Athena saved my life. I cannot recommend or speak highly enough about them- from the care I received to the incredibly talented, professional, and thoughtful staff.I have been to other treatment centers in the EU, and they pale in comparison to Athena Passages. The list is endless for why this is: from administration and intake until the time you walk out the door you are thoroughly supported, the day staff and health care professionals go above and beyond, it is a beautiful and clean facility, programming is great and structured, you are never made to feel like just a patient, care is individually tailored. I had life changing one on one support with a clinical support specialist without whom my sobriety would not be as strong as it is today. And even crazier and better, you get continued support afterwards. The alumni community that I interact with is a pillar in my life.Would recommend Athena Passages to anyone who needs medical treatment for a substance abuse problem wholeheartedly. Coming from the darkest moments of my life, I look at Athena with nothing but gratitude and so happy I found them when I did.

I’ve been fighting addiction for over half my life. The detox made the withdrawal from methadone bearable and the IV flush helped me feel healthy and strong. The rehab program was unique and useful. Staff members such as Dimitra were always welcoming and encouraging. Thank you to all who participated in this process. I am still sober today.

We can’t say enough about the professionalism and expert care our daughter received at Athena Passages. For any family dealing with the terrifying circumstances of addiction and mental illness of a loved one, there is hope at Athena. Not only was our daughter treated with individualized expert care, but our family was supported through the most difficult time with their skillfully delivered services.

I was addicted to Lyrica and alcohol for years! I wanted to quit but I was very afraid of withdrawals and even more afraid of leaving home to go into a facility. I finally decided to go to Greece instead of the government hospital. The doctors and the nurses went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable both mentally and physically while I detoxed. You can tell they all really care about the wellbeing of their patients. Today I am totally substance free, and I would never have been able to do it without Athena. If you are struggling with addictions like I was and want to get clean, I highly suggest that you choose Athena.

Found this place on Luxury Rehabs. Was looking to go out of Europe initially but then I found Athena Passages in Greece and decided to give it a shot! Amazing first step for entering recovery for the first time. Athena is a really special place. Not only are you surrounded by staff in recovery, but also truly special clients around you. The medical staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Administration goes above and beyond to admit you and provide instructions for an aftercare plan. The amenities are outstanding, and the building is ridiculously clean. The Outdoor Discover Greece program makes you forget you are rehab and having fun like a kid again! It’s been a pleasure staying at this facility, and I truly am grateful for all of the support.
