Benefits of residential rehab treatment
By The Hope Team
Topic at one glance:
Are you asking yourself if rehab treatment is really necessary to overcome your addiction? After all, there are other options (e.g. the 12-Step programs) out there that might be successful as well. But hear us out for a moment, please: Ok, we admit, we might be a little biased. However, there are some really good reasons why choosing residential rehab treatment is the best option for a complete recovery. The truth is: The odds are likely going to be stacked against you if you try to quit your addiction at home without any help. Part of the problem is that you are going to be surrounded by the usual temptations and stresses. It is also really hard to make such a major life change without the right type of support – even people who have never been addicted to drugs struggle when it comes to making big changes. The list below is meant to give you a brief idea of what benefits to expect when you admit yourself for treatment:
Residential rehab will provide you with the tools for long-term recovery
By entering a suitable residential rehab center, you greatly increase the likelihood that you will achieve lasting recovery. This is because you will be in the right environment for change, and there will be treatments available in this facility to ease your transition to a new life (e.g. treatments to make withdrawal symptoms easier to deal with). Most importantly of all, you will have a chance to pick up the tools you need to build a better life.
Residential rehab is an investment in your future
You have probably already guessed by now that the real challenge when it comes to recovery from drugs and alcohol is not stopping but staying stopped. You will have been using these substances to help you cope with life, and if you don’t develop new coping strategies, you may struggle to deal with things – this means the temptation to relapse will be high.
If you are serious about quitting addiction, don’t you want to choose the option that gives you the best chance of achieving your goal? You could look at residential rehab as an investment in your future, and it can be one of the best investments you ever make.
Why Choose Our Residential Rehab in Thailand?
Maybe you already accept that you would benefit from some professional help with quitting your addiction, but why would you want to travel all the way to Thailand for a residential rehab? Well, for one thing, our program contains a mix of the evidence-based practices that will give you a solid foundation for your recovery. There are also aspects of our treatment approach that you will not find anywhere else in the world (e.g. Thai mindfulness practices or Thai massage therapy).
Many of our clients are originally drawn to considering a residential rehab in Thailand due to their limited options at home. A private treatment center in somewhere like the UK, US, or Australia tends to be exorbitantly expensive, and state-funded rehab is becoming harder to qualify for, and often involves a long waiting list if you do qualify. There is also the problem that many treatment facilities in the West are resistant to change, and they continue to push a ‘one-size fits all’ approach’ or rely too heavily on the psychiatric and pharmaceutical approach.
The majority of foreigners that travel to Thailand for Rehab, just can’t find the help they need at home. Originally all Paul allowed himself to Hope for, was another detox and to take a break from his depressing circumstances. However, he soon realised that Hope’s program offered more than just the quick fix, like the drugs he was prescribed in Melbourne. “These guys gave me HOPE when I had none. I was told I had a disease and was taught how to re-program my addict-brain. I initially signed up for two months but stayed for three because after a taste of really being alive for the first time in my life.” Paul no longer relies on a bag of drugs just to function; his life is no longer out of control. Treatment Director at Hope Rehab, Simon Mott, says “Paul has experienced a remarkable transformation in the three months he has been with us. He has been determined from the very beginning. He is willing to do whatever it takes to make sobriety work.
