Thinking of Coming to Thailand for Addiction Treatment? Read This First
There is no doubt about it – Thailand can be a great choice if you are looking to start a new life away from addiction. Not only will you find international standard addiction treatment at a much lower cost than found in western countries, but it can also be an advantage to get completely away your usual environment (which is going to be full of triggers and temptations) to somewhere a bit alien (this can make it easier to think differently so you can begin transforming your life).
Thailand has become the number one destination for people looking for addiction treatment, and this high demand has led to an increase in the number of facilities operating here. More rehabs will mean more choice for those looking for a facility, which is a good thing, but it can also make choosing the right a facility a bit harder.
It goes without saying that we are going to be biased towards Hope Rehab – we want you to come to us. It is our intention though, for these tips to be of value to anyone who is considering coming to Thailand regardless of which rehab they choose.
Tips for Choosing a Rehab in Thailand
Finding a Rehab in Thailand for a Loved One
Encouraging someone you care about to go to rehab in Thailand can be a smart move. This is especially true if this person has struggled to stay free of drugs at home surrounded by their usual triggers and temptations. Going abroad provides a completely new environment where it becomes much easier to achieve lasting change.
Financial concerns can also be a key factor when choosing a rehab for your loved one. Private inpatient treatment in western countries can be prohibitively expensive, and the waiting list for government-funded rehab can be long. Here in Thailand we can provide international-standard treatment far cheaper than many other parts of the world.
Why Choose Hope Rehab Thailand for Your Loved One
Here at Hope Rehab we are committed to providing individualized care with a focus on evidenced-based treatments. This means that on the first day your loved on arrives, he/she will be fully assessed and a treatment plan created based on this assessment. As well as plenty of group activities, there is also a named primary therapist who is responsible for each client. The treatments we offer at Hope include mindfulness therapy, wellness therapy, Cognitive-behavioral therapy, and 12-step therapy.
Warning – Be Cautious with Thai Rehab Comparison Websites
It is understandable why websites claiming to provide ‘unbiased’ reviews of a multiple Thai inpatient treatment programs are attractive to readers. This type of service will claim to provide all the key information you need to help you choose the right rehab programme – thus saving a great deal of time as it would be much slower to check out each facility separately.
These comparison websites would be incredibly helpful if the information they provided was actually accurate and unbiased. Unfortunately, such sites are often created on behalf of individual rehabs as a promotional tool, and as a way to turn readers off competitors.
Comparison websites are also often created by affiliates who make a profit from referrals – thus the glowing review they offer will often have more to do with the amount of commission created by a referral rather than the quality of the program being reviewed. As you can see, there is good reason to suspect that these websites are offering far from unbiased reviews.
