Rehabs in South Africa or in Thailand?

Rehabs in South Africa and Thailand are now attracting clients from many parts of the world such as the UK, Hong Kong, Australia, and Singapore. By making the decision to travel abroad for addiction treatment, you are going to have access to more options either for yourself or for your loved one. The only question is – where to go?

Rehabs in South Africa

Let’s be honest, our rehab is located in Thailand, so we are going to be a little bit biased about where you should go. We want you to come and stay with us and forget all about rehabs in South Africa. Our opinion is not going to be completely impartial, but there are compelling reasons for why you would want to choose Thailand for addiction treatment.

We don’t want to waste too much time telling why you shouldn’t choose rehabs in South Africa. We would much rather focus on the reasons for why you should come to Thailand. This is an important decision you are now making. This could be your last opportunity to break free of addiction, so you do need to consider the facts.

Dr David Bayever (Central Drug Authority) claims that drug abuse is ‘twice the world norm’ in South Africa. It is believed that 11.7 million people are going to need addiction help at some point in their life (source: South African Medical Research Council), and this means that rehabs in South Africa are under a great deal of pressure, and the situation is only going to get worse.

If you don’t have access to the resources you need to begin building a new life in recovery, the odds are going to be stacked against you. All rehabs are going to have dedicated and competent therapists (as well as other addiction professionals), but these people can only work with the resources they have at their disposal.

When we ask our foreign clients about why they have travelled to Thailand for addiction help, the usual response is an inability to find appropriate recovery resources at home. These clients could have chosen to go to rehabs in South Africa, but they didn’t because it didn’t make sense to choose a country where too many addiction treatment centres are struggling to cope.

Why Choose Rehab in Thailand?

Going to rehab abroad costs money, and one of the reasons Thailand has become such a popular choice is affordability. We offer you a luxury rehab environment at a fraction of the amount you would pay at home. When it comes to value for money, the Thai facilities easily beat rehabs in South Africa.

The main reason we think you should choose to come to us here at Hope Rehab Center is that we offer a unique environment where you will have access to everything you need to build a better life. Our therapists are not struggling due to an impossible workload, and this means they have the time to get to know you and offer you what you need. There is no rationing of resources here, and this makes an enormous difference to your ability to transform your life.

Rehabs in South Africa are often in attractive locations, but there is nothing to compare with the beauty of Thailand – okay, we are being biased again, but we are certain you are going to fall in love with this country.

Hope Rehab Center is located in Sriracha which is a part of the country most tourists miss. We are right beside the sea with beautiful beaches, islands, and jungle areas within easy reach. The Thai people are known for their hospitality, and you are going to be made feel like a member of the local community – we are also going to make sure you feel at home during your stay.

We understand what it is like to struggle with addiction, and we want to help you make the right choice. If you are still unsure whether to visit one of the Rehabs in South Africa or a Rehab in Thailand, just send us an email or give us a call now and we can discuss the options with you.

“My names James, I am a previous client at Hope rehab centre. My experience there was that of a homely, family atmosphere coupled with experienced staff that I found approachable on both a personal & professional basis. After battling with addiction for 20 yrs, and multiple failed rehabs, the structure at ‘Hope’ was certainly different to any previous experience at rehab, and certainly a factor in my recovery process along with many other differences that make hope such a special place in my opinion. The combined 12 step program & cognitive therapy group work helped to not only focus me on my recovery from addiction, but question my own thinking behind my use of drugs and how i viewed life in general.

I’ve stayed friends with some really good people that shared my journey at hope, and are still in recovery with me. I really hope anyone considering recovery from either alcoholism/addiction will have the same life changing experience I had and reap the benefits of being ‘clean’ again. So grateful for the opportunity Hope gave me to begin a new path and actually take part in life opposed to taking from it. Kind regards, James”
