The Benefits of a Rehab Mindfulness Program

Rehab Mindfulness Program

Up until this point, you will have been using drugs and alcohol to help you cope with life. Our mindfulness program at Hope Rehab Thailand will increase your ability to deal with negative thoughts, stress, negative emotions, and relapse triggers. This is important because once you feel more in control of your life, the pull towards addiction will become much weaker.

One of the particularly unpleasant aspects of being caught up in addiction is the feeling of complete powerlessness – it is like we become a prisoner of our own brain. There may have been many times when you felt determined to change, yet you still ended up back where you started.  One of the great benefits of our rehab mindfulness program (along with other approaches such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) is it teaches you to manage your own brain. Instead of your life been driven by habitual behaviours, you win back your freedom.

Our residential rehab mindfulness program can be a path towards the inner-peace you have always longed for. Most of us who fall into addiction describe how we always felt uncomfortable in our own skin or like we had a hole in our soul. Alcohol and drugs can seem to make this feeling go away in the beginning, but it actually makes us feel much worse. Mindfulness can help us become at ease with ourselves and the world – it can provide the piece of the jigsaw that we always felt was missing.

Our Unique and Comprehensive Residential Rehab Mindfulness Program

The rehab mindfulness program we offer at Hope Rehab Thailand is unlike anything you will find elsewhere in the world. Some powerful mindfulness practices (เจริญสติ) have been developed locally, and one of these is Mahasati (มหาสติ) meditation which can be translated as ‘great mindfulness’. This technique is particular good for people in early recovery because it doesn’t require high levels of focus – it is the same technique that is taught to young kids here in Thailand. We also teach other mindfulness practices such as mindful waking, loving-kindness meditation, yoga, and tai-chi. You will be asked to keep a mindfulness journal to encourage you to engage in informal practices too (e.g. be completely present in the moment to enjoy the sunset from our balcony).

The mindfulness program offered at our treatment center covers a comprehensive range of topics including: dealing with cravings, escaping autopilot mode, objectivity around thinking, mindful eating, developing self-compassion, and dealing with relapse triggers. These subjects are covered in our fun twice-weekly rehab mindfulness classes.

One of the unique aspects of our rehab mindfulness program is we provide one-to-one coaching. This gives you the opportunity to discuss your development with an experienced mindfulness coach, and you will be given advice on how to apply this approach to your daily life.
