The key to escaping addiction is to combine your determination for change with the right resources. Even if you are still a bit uncertain of your ability to give up alcohol or drugs completely, the right environment can boost your motivation so this then becomes possible. By choosing an appropriate addiction treatment program, you greatly increase your chances of success. Here are just some of the reasons for why Hope Rehab Thailand might be exactly what is needed:

Hope Rehab Is Where the East Meets the West

Group Meditation Hope Rehab Thailand

Our program emphasizes approaches such as Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy12-step work, and mindfulness therapy because these are backed by evidence. We believe it is important to offer you a good selection of therapies because this increases the likelihood you will end up with the tools you need to succeed in the future. There are some local practices here in Thailand that are of value to people in recovery, and we have also incorporated these into our program – e.g. Thai massage, mahasati meditation, and brahma vihara meditation.

You Will Find Support and Understanding in Our Community

Almost all of our therapists and support workers have the experience of dealing with addiction in their own lives. It is also common for clients who pass through the Hope program to stay involved afterwards – some of them even decide to come back as volunteers. This means you will be entering a community of people who have a good understanding of what you have been going through. We have confidence in the Hope program because it allowed us to become free of addiction and it continues to help us on a daily basis – our advice may be of more value to you because it is of ‘do as we do’ variety rather than ‘do as we say’.

6. The power of Hope’s groups:

We are not alone in this world, so we learn from each other at Hope. Sharing is paradoxical; when you share part of yourself to stay well, you help others at the same time. Relationships In our community help you learn how to maintain healthy boundaries with others and the world at large.

7. Getting Structure in your Life:

The most difficult part of change is that we tend to revert back to what we’ve always done. The familiar is seductive so changing habits is the toughest part of long-term change. So Hope Rehab is structured to be every bit as habit-forming as addiction and introduces important self-discipline.

Think about the cost of your using and lost opportunities against the cost of entering the Hope rehab program, also the bigger picture of your improved life.

from society to evaluate yourself and your life. Research suggests that people sometimes achieve change and acceptance through “positive withdrawal” from old environments. Relocating to a new and different environment like Hope Rehab in Thailand can change your perspective by meeting new and interesting people from around the world with different ideals and cultures, the inspiration of new landscapes, which is often found by travelling to somewhere you have never been before.

10. Personal transformation:

The Cocoon metaphor represents a process of change and growth achieved by working an intensive and challenging program. A father and his son walk through the forest in late spring. They spot a butterfly struggling to break free from its cocoon. The boy asked his father to free the butterfly from its natural prison, so he takes out his knife and carefully opens the cocoon. Sadly the butterfly falls to the ground and lies there helplessly trying to flap its wings unable to fly.
