At Hope, we understand that addiction is often linked to depression and unhappy events that have occurred in your life. That is why we concentrate on treating the whole person, using a treatment plan that has been developed by experts and is delivered by fully qualified, highly experienced staff. It combines the latest research into the treatment of addiction with proven therapy techniques and fitness activities, to begin the healing process of both mind and body, helping you to rediscover the beauty of life after addiction.
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. Supervised outings and weekend excursions help lift people’s depression and nurture an interest in health activities.
The approach here is also strongly focused on individualised care planning. This means each client is fully assessed on admission, and the treatment plan is based on this assessment. If the needs of the person change during their stay, the treatment plan is adjusted in response to this – assessment is an ongoing process.
Discipline and structure are seen as transferable from the rehab program to the client’s new life after addiction. Many clients have lost all self-control, so need re-habituating in positive and healthy behaviours.
Nothing compares with the camaraderie you feel, the support you get and learning that is gained from the group therapy process. Even the very risk taken by attending and participating in group is of unparalleled value.
Before departing Hope each client receives a one-on-one session with one of our dedicated Recovery Coaches. In Recovery Coaching clients will have the opportunity to discuss any potential issues regarding their reintegration into home life. This can include their living situation, work or career choices, transportation, social environment, support network, or anything else that could use some extra attention. With the help of their Recovery Coach clients are empowered to discover and develop their own solutions, set goals, and follow through with those goals to guarantee the smoothest possible transition back to everyday life.
After returning home each client remains in personal contact with their Recovery Coach for assistance and support in remaining motivated and focused during this key transition period. During this time clients are able to practice and grow techniques for keeping themselves safe and for getting involved in local support groups.
Hope also offers a weekly online aftercare video meeting. This meeting provides a digital venue where clients are able to check in on their recovery with peers they know personally from treatment and with whom they already have a strong bond. Joining the online aftercare supplies clients with a continuation of the same peer support they received in treatment while also offering the opportunity to give back to other clients after they too make the journey home.
