Richard Smith

program director and clinical head

BA (Psychology) Grad Dip Social Science (Drug Dependence)

My journey with addiction began in 1968, when I became dependant at a young age. Later I became addicted to heroin for 12 years. I finally went into recovery in 1985. From then on, I have dedicated my life to working with addicts, alcoholics and their families. I began by gaining a Bachelor of Arts (Psychology), and a Graduate Diploma in Social Science (Drug Dependence). After that, I held various positions in primary health care institutions in Victoria, Australia. I formed the Hader Clinic in Melbourne in 1997. Our mission at Seasons Bali is to help you rediscover the natural happiness within when a clear body and mind is allowed to manifest and expand fully. I have been enjoying mine since 1985, and I look forward to helping you rediscover yours.

My interest in addictions and mental health began in 2012. Since then I have helped so many people to find some relief from their troubles. I work in several private hospitals in Bali as a Psychiatric consultant. It is incredible to see the difference in people after they get proper help. I heard about what Seasons Bali were doing across my time in various hospitals.

My mission at Seasons is to make sure that people receive the highest level of psychiatric care possible.
