Overlooking the Austrian lake, Althaussee, VIVAMAYR is our pick for a great mix of old world thinking meets modern science. Dedicated to teaching you how to restart, and not just offering a quick fix, this detox spot intertwines principles of mental strength to help you help yourself through the program, and further through life.

La Pensee Sauvage

We selected La Pensee Sauvage for this list for a detox that doesn't feel like you're depriving yourself -- with names like "Detox Gourmande" and "Detox Douceur", this appeals to those looking for a little more self-care and spa over targeted medical and scientific retreats. Located in southeastern France, this is a true city escape, surrounded by vast expanses of the French countryside.

Villa Paradiso

Villa Paradiso is a medical spa situated on Lake Garda, in Italy. Paradiso is a true medical spa, with plenty of options for your ideal detox. The most health centric seems to be the Diagnostic Prevention Detox, which includes daily medical check ups, as well as blood tests, ECGs, and numerous other doctor-oriented methods to best assess your health and your best path to health. For a more self-care and wellness approach, like the Vitality Wellness treatment, which centers around massages, work outs, and personalised diets.
