Hope recieving an award for our treatment program pdf from the Thai government


At Hope we provide the following therapies

Therapy at hope includes Buddhism to help you find peace with yourself and conquer your addictions
Hope Rehabs unique therapy program allows you to see Thailand and learn how to be sober outside of the Rehab environment

Our therapy plan includes

Counselling: - sessions up to 3 times per week both formal and informal.

Sober Coaching: - Life on life's terms - we take you out and about, enjoying Thailand while learning to live sober again. 

"At Hope we have created a new treatment model, we call it “recovery-coaching” based on exposure therapy. I employ people in recovery to take clients out and about. They go to restaurants, shopping, college, sightseeing and other tasks. This prepares them better for a sober life after rehab. Instead of keeping them cocooned like traditional rehabs do. Sober-coaching, recovery-coaching, mentoring, call it what you want, it is one of the best way to learn anything but especially how to stay clean and sober. Life can be a minefield so getting some help finding a safe way through is wise choice – remember addiction is a life threatening disease. Simon Mott"

CBT Cognitive Behaviour Therapy:  - Short term therapy with long term results. This form of treatment unravels and changes your negative thought patterns. 

Group work: - Together we are stronger and the power is in the group process. Who shares wins. 

"The power of the group, there is no doubt together we are stronger, this takes some courage. We find comfort among those who agree with us, but we find growth among those who don’t. Either way it is in the group where we learn about ourselves and change"

Minnesota Model: - the 12-step model of treatment was developed originally by AA - Alcoholics Anonymous - and is an evidence-based treatment, highly successful. 

"We feel that our approach to the disease of addiction is completely realistic, for the therapeutic value of one addict helping another is without parallel. We feel that our way is practical, for one addict can best understand and help another addict. We believe that the sooner we face our problems within our society, in everyday living, just that much faster do we become acceptable, responsible, and productive members of that society.NA"

Holistic Treatment Programme

Alon teaching mindful meditation at Hope Rehab
Our teaching staff are highly trained and will aid in your therapy and ease your path to recovery

Relapse prevention: – Understanding your triggers helps you stay in recovery and away from trouble.

The Psycho-educational: - Learning about the science of addiction is helpful to understand why.

Fitness: - Is essential to rebuild your health and brain pathways, new behaviours or habits. 

"I always say, get up before your addiction does – at Hope we are up and exercising before breakfast. Not every action brings happiness - but there is definitely no happiness without some action, so little by little you will get stronger. Higher power is within, you never know what you are capable of, come to Hope and find out. Simon Mott"

Voluntary work: - Service to others takes you away from yourself for a moment, this is also a core principle behind the success of self-help recovery programmes. 

Aftercare: - Staying connected with Hope Rehab 

Mindfulness and Meditation: – Relaxation, being present and not worrying about the past or the future 

“Actions are what makes your hopes a reality. The therapeutic process can be more exciting than you could ever imagine – Mountain running in the morning, Buddhist chanting, food fits for the gods, sharing your life story with your peers and having a counseling session on the beach – Not bad for a day in Rehab” 

Friday's we go out for "clean & sober" weekend therapy, dinner and evening walks in town

Principles of Effective Treatment Guidelines by NIDA

NIDA Scientific research over the last 50 years shows that treatment can help patients addicted to drugs stop using, avoid relapse, and successfully recover their lives. Based on this research, key principles have emerged that should form the basis of any effective treatment programs:

  • Treatment needs to be readily available.
  • Effective treatment attends to multiple needs of the individual, not just his or her drug abuse (underlying issues).
  • Remaining in treatment for an adequate period of time is critical.
  • Counseling on individual basis is beneficial.
  • Group behavioral therapies are the most commonly used.
  • Medications can be helpful.
  • Many drug–addicted individuals also have other mental disorders.
  • Medically assisted detoxification is only the first stage of addiction. treatment and by itself does little to change long–term drug abuse.
  • Treatment does not need to be voluntary to be effective.
  • Drug use during treatment must be monitored continuously, as lapses during treatment do occur.

Clients words….

"Having had the opportunity to have met Simon and Alon during my 3 and a half months of treatment, the only word that comes to mind is “GRATEFUL”. These wonderful people made me feel so loved and cared for during my treatment. Thanks to them i am today 6 months clean and still going strong. They didn’t give me a second chance in life, but a chance at a second life" Much Love, Phil
