Choosing a Rehab in Australia
Are you or somebody you care about ready looking for a way out of addiction? Choosing a rehab program in Australia is one option, but you may also want to consider going abroad to get the help you need. Our rehab is located in Thailand, and we can provide you with a path of recovery that you will not find at home.
Number of Australians in Need of Rehab is Rising Fast
There are approximately 150,000 Australians looking for addiction help each year (Source: Australian Institute of Health and Welfare). This number is only likely to rise in the future. The use of methamphetamines, and other stimulant drugs, has gotten so out of control that Prime Minster Tony Abbott has conceded that the ‘war on drugs’ is lost (source: Herald Sun). Prescription drug abuse is also on the increase, and around twenty per cent of Australians drink alcohol at a level that puts them in a high risk category develop problems (source: Australian Institute of Health and Welfare).
If you are in need of addiction treatment, it may seem as if choosing a rehab in Australia is the only viable option. There are around 700 agencies (Source: Australian Institute of Health and Welfare) involved in providing treatment information across the commonwealth, but this advice is understandably going to be biased towards local inpatient options. The problem is that your best chance of recovery may be not choosing a rehab in Australia but going abroad instead.
Problems You May Face When Choosing a Rehab Program in Australia
Just being highly motivated to change your life might not be enough to ensure you to break free of addiction. Your determination can be like an unstoppable force, but it needs to be channelled in the right way. Making any major change in your life is always going to be challenging, but it is even more so when a physical or psychological addiction is involved. Your best bet is to match your determination with the right resources.
By choosing a rehab program in Australia, you are likely to follow a treatment path that is based on the psychiatric/pharmaceutical approach. This medicalized approach to recovery can work for work for some people, but it doesn’t work for everyone. Our clients who have been to rehab in Australia often share about how they felt disempowered and treated like a symptom rather than a human being.
The fact that there is an increasing demand for addiction treatment in Australia means you may struggle to find something appropriate. ABC News recently reported (June 11, 2014) that demand for beds in rehabs was at an ‘unprecedented high’, and many facilities are reporting an increase in applications of up to twenty per cent. This means that you may have to wait around just to get in anywhere.
