Why Are So Many People Now Going Abroad for Addiction Treatment?
International Rehab centers are no longer just an option for the rich and famous. Cynics might still try to dismiss this option as a bit of an indulgence, but there are many compelling reasons for why this is a good choice. If you are currently looking for addiction treatment, you would probably do well to consider this as a viable option for you, International Rehab Centers.
“My two months in Thailand in treatment working with Simon as my counselor and the team was incredible: a bright star-month of hope, healing, and happiness (an emotion/emotional state that I generally–being an addict– do not authentically feel) against the backdrop of a dark, stormy sky of a drug-addicted life in New York City. I have been to four outpatient centers and three in-patient rehabs here, and the Center in Thailand was so superior in many ways. Not only did it cost much less, the treatment and experience was overwhelmingly more effective and interesting and special. Hope rehab is the best choice for treatment, do not consider anywhere else; you would miss out on so much” Cat Marnell New York
International Rehab Centers
One driving force behind the hunger of International Rehab Centers is of course affordability. Private rehab for alcohol and drugs can be prohibitively expensive in most western countries. This means many of us feel compelled to follow the example of medical tourists who find it is much cheaper to go abroad to get the help we need. Some countries do provide state-funded rehab for those of us are most in need, but the criteria to get this help is getting tougher, so there is an increasing number of us who desperately need rehab but are not eligible for a state-funded slot.
Another important reason for why many of us consider International Rehab Centers is that it increases the likelihood that we will get the exact help we need. There are now many approaches to addiction recovery, and the trick is to find the path that best suits your temperament and abilities. The problem is that many rehabilitation centers in the west offer a ‘one size fits all’ approach that doesn’t take into account your needs as an individual.
There are plenty of other benefits that come from choosing International Rehab Centers. Being far away from your usual stresses and triggers can make the job of quitting alcohol and drugs easier. Staying in a treatment center that is in a completely different environment than what you are used to can also make it easier to see things in a new way.
International Rehab Centers in Thailand
Thailand has become the most popular of all International Rehab Centers for addiction treatment. The relatively low-cost of living in this country makes it easier to offer affordable rehab to clients and some of the top addiction therapists have been attracted at the international treatment centers here. There are also some unique aspects of the local culture (e.g. Thai mindfulness practices) that make it a good place for anyone looking to escape addiction.
“….And the Winner for Best Rehab in Asia goes to…. Hope Rehab Center Thailand
Okay- so we didn’t officially win any award for the best rehab in Asia, but this may be because such an award doesn’t exist. If it did, we are confident of being a main contender for this title. This all might sound a bit arrogant, but our confidence is based on our results, and the feedback we get from clients.
Here are just some of the reasons we believe Hope is the best rehab in Asia:
“My thirty days in Thailand in treatment working with Simon as my counsellor and the team was incredible: a bright star-month of hope, healing, and happiness against the backdrop of a dark, stormy sky of a drug-addicted life in New York City. Not only did it cost much less, the treatment and experience was overwhelmingly more effective and interesting and special. I received incredibly intelligent addiction therapy, both one-on-one with my counsellor, Simon, and in the group sessions, that were compelling, powerful, and educational” Cat Marnell New York
