Step One Recovery Centre is based in Javea on the glorious Costa Blanca in Spain for many reasons, one of which is the amazing health benefits! Year after year, this area wins awards for being one of the healthiest places to live in the world and with 131 miles of beautiful Mediterranean coastline, it’s easy to see why.

According to the World Health Organisation due to the temperate climate all year round, relatively low humidity and low rainfall; it’s one of the healthiest places to live in the world! ‘It’s as near to a perfect environment as possible to currently obtained’ they said recently. These lovely temperatures means it’s great against climatically controlled health problems like arthritis and psoriasis.

But why is the Costa Blanca so nice?

Recent studies have shown that people who live in warm, sunny climates are generally happy all year round rather than those who live in the cold or the wet. This area of Spain sees the lowest recorded amounts of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) during the colder months as with clear blue skies, and less chance of snow, people are still outside and socialising.

Due to the better weather, more people are keen to be outside walking, socialising and exercising which is not only good for the body, but for the mind too. Turning off the television and taking a trip to the beach or pool is an option for people here in Spain and at Step One Recovery Centre, we encourage people to spend time in the lovely peaceful grounds which offers a stunning view of the Montgo Massif Mountain between Javea and Denia.

The area is easily accessible with regular low cost flights and two popular airports that can help you start your journey with Step One Recovery Centre. We’re also proud to offer a multilingual team speaking English, Spanish, German, Dutch and more so that you’ll always get the most out of your treatment. Did you know that 1 in 4 Britons choose to come to Spain at least once every year, and as you stand with the sun on your face, the free ‘feel good factor’ offers a much-improved quality of life and less formal attitude unrivalled with other Recovery Centers found elsewhere.
