Imelda Wellington

CEO and Founder


Luxury Beach Rehab was founded by Imelda on the grounds that recovering addicts need, in conjunction with strong therapy and the chance to get sober, an opportunity to find peace. The center was inspired by the serene atmosphere and amiable environs of North Hutchinson Island. The oasis of healing created by Imelda is an illustration to each client to find peace within.

Working with the Program Director, Imelda ensures that clients receive a strong clinical program as well as a program which addresses health, wellness and spirituality. A fully integrated approach is seen as having the most positive impact in the attempts to overcome addiction.

Imelda has experienced addiction problems within her own family and has also been through her own recovery program, meaning that she is well aware of what is necessary to get sober and stay sober. A strong family program is seen by Imelda as being essential to helping a client’s sobriety.
