Longer-Term treatment for Long-Term success
For some clients 28 days has to be enough for many reasons, financial, family and work, so our intensive program is idea. However for many a month is not enough so we have affordable longer-term program options. Typically the psychological healing process of recovery and change requires a longer-term treatment plan so to encourage commitment we offer lower rates than other facilities of our standard. Most clients stay between one and two months, some stay three months and move on to our Sober-house project.
The program has been designed so clients get to experience Thailand while receiving treatment. Our intensive program is combination of CBT counselling and workshops, Mindfulness, and Fitness training with many exciting and interesting activities during the therapeutic week.Supervised outings and weekend excursions help lift clients depression and anxiety, also nurture’s an interest in health activities.
If you want to have the best chance of success in rehab, you need to follow a program that has been specifically designed to treat your exact type of addiction. If the treatment is too general in nature (aka the ‘one size fits all’ approach), it is unlikely to provide everything you need – it could also waste your time with a lot of interventions you don’t need. During your time here at Hope Rehab, you will be following a specialised programme – one that has a proven record of success with your exact type of addiction.
"You know you are addicted when you cannot stop doing something that is hurting you. Robin Williams famously said “Cocaine is God's way of saying you're making too much money” Well I crossed many lines against my own value-system while in active addiction, I did many bad things, I hurt people, I stole, I was selfish however as Vincent Van Gogh said ‘Conscience is a man’s compass’ so I new it was wrong. I believe we all know what is wrong and right, it’s the one we choose today that makes the difference.
If all you needed to do to recover from addiction was quit alcohol or drugs, there probably wouldn’t be any need for rehab. In reality, this behaviour is usually a symptom of something much deeper. There will have been a reason for why you sought comfort in using alcohol or drugs – this could include things like low self-esteem, uncontrolled anxiety, or just a feeling of disconnection with the world. It is vital that these underlying issues are dealt with or else there is going to be a high risk of relapse or turning to new addictive behaviours.
A major part of your treatment at Hope Rehab is going to be about tackling these driving forces behind the behaviour. You will begin this work in one-to-one therapy sessions, and you can also expect to gain insights during group therapy. We also teach you mindfulness, which will help you become far more objective about what is driving your behaviour. By the time you leave us, you will have a much better understanding of the root of your addiction, and will have begun healing that part of your psyche.
Dealing with the Consequences of an Addictive Past
Another aspect of our rehab program is helping you to deal with the consequences of the addictive behaviour. You acted as you did due to an illness, and not because you were bad, but unfortunately, you still have to face the mess that has been created. During your stay with us, we will offer support guidance for dealing with issues such as:
- Harm to your reputation and career
- Loss of respect from friends and family
- Domestic problems
- Loss of motivation
- Guilt about the past
- Financial worries
- Loss of purpose in life
- Legal problems
Our programmes use the most effective evidence-based treatments, and we deliver these as part of a package based around your unique needs. This specialised approach is suitable for all patterns of substance abuse or obsessive behavior. If you feel ready to change your life, we provide everything you need to make this change possible.
'For everyone that comes to Hope and changes, I know alot more peoples lives improved - The tree steps to change are 1, summoning the courage needed to look at yourself and make the change, 2, to unload the burdens you are carrying, and 3, getting in touch with the innocence child within and resolving your inner conflicts.
