Environmental Benefits and Weather in Thailand

According to new research, environmental conditions play a major role in recovery and rewiring the brain. Researchers have shown that positive and stimulating environmental conditions make it easier to treat addiction. This is why all clients go to the island and beach on weekends to stimulate the reward center with healthy activity. Seasonal Affective Disorder SAD is a debilitating condition and many addicts and alcoholics suffer from isolation causing SAD.

"Coming to Thailand increases motivation and helps inspire people through their struggle, a sunny uplifting environment makes a difference. Also being away from familiar surroundings makes for a safe place, especially if you experience triggers cravings"

Thailand is a country that can be visited all year round due to its warm climate and weather. ​Our location has the most number of sunny dry days, with occasional and welcome refreshing tropical showers in rainy season.

The neuroscience of Addiction/Alcoholism Explained

American society of alcoholism (1950) was changed to The American Society of Addiction Medicine in 1989. In 2011 they released the latest definition of addiction "This fundamental impairment in the experience of pleasure literally compels the addict to chase rewards produced by substances and excessive behaviors”

The Hijacked brain theory: The human reward system is designed for survival but is now hijacked by the payoffs provided by the addiction. The reward circuitry normally bookmarks important things like: food, nurturing children, education, work and friendships, however it is now corrupted by the immediate and overwhelming rewards of the addiction.

Self-medicating theory; is the idea that people develop addiction to compensate for untreated underlying problems such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, abuse etc

  • Alcohol is an instant sedative and relaxes stress and anxiety
  • Opiates help stabilize moods and sooth aggression
  • Amphetamine is an energy boosts and can enhance performance
  • Cocaine temporarily relieves depression and low self-esteem

Hope Changes Everything – and - Everyone Can Change

Hope reflects the attitude we have on behalf of all our clients until they have it for themselves. HOPE is important to instill from the beginning. HOPE is the seed of a positive belief system that will start to grow. Psychologists put a great emphasis on developing a positive belief system in order to make changes in life. Interestingly the American Society of Addiction Medicine say.....

“Addiction professionals and persons in recovery know the ‘HOPE’ that is found in recovery. Recovery is available even to persons who may not at first be able to perceive this HOPE”
