If you are struggling with alcohol addiction, it is normal to feel overwhelmed at the prospect of treatment. The decision to get help is a very important first step. But how can you be sure you are choosing the right rehab? Your needs and circumstances are unique to you – and your treatment programme should be, too. At our holistic alcohol rehab in Thailand, you can find much-needed reprieve from your daily life and take some time to focus on getting well. Here’s a look at how our alcohol treatment in Thailand works.

How Alcohol Addiction is Treated at The Dawn Rehab

When you enter our alcohol rehab in Thailand, we conduct a thorough assessment and create a personalised treatment plan that addresses your core concerns and builds on your strengths. Your therapist will oversee your entire treatment programme and adjust it as needed. Our programme consists of two main stages: first, alcohol detox, which is followed by alcohol addiction treatment and holistic wellness therapy.

If you are physically dependent on alcohol, your first step will be an alcohol detox — the necessity of a detox will be determined during your assessment prior to starting treatment.

This phase can be challenging, as your body withdraws from the ever-present levels of alcohol it’s become accustomed to and gets used to functioning without it. But our caring and certified medical team who are on call 24 hours, will be right by your side, helping you feel supported and stay positive all the way. We offer medical detox onsite, so you can complete all stages of treatment in one location and easily transition from detox to therapy.

After detox you’ll move on to your psycho-socio treatment. We do this using our own unique Twin Pillars approach. The first pillar consists of a combination of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and mindfulness-based cognitive behavioural therapy (MCBT), as well as a secular 12-Step programme that provides valuable peer discussion and social support.

It provides you with essential tools that put an end to negative patterns and encourage self-sufficiency. You’ll develop new behaviours that are positive and constructive, proving that these are far more fulfilling and deeply rewarding than the destructive cycle of alcohol addiction. And although addiction can feel isolating, you will find you are not alone in your struggle — through shared activities and healthy communication, you will build a recovery community that will support you well beyond your time with us.

The second pillar entails a wellness regimen that focuses on harmonising your body and mind, and equipping you with sustainable practices designed to help you live a balanced life in recovery. This involves elements such as mindfulness meditation, massage therapy and fitness therapy. Our onsite wellness amenities include exercise equipment, a yoga and meditation temple and massage studio.

Why The Dawn is the Best Rehab in Thailand for Alcohol Addiction

At The Dawn, we like to keep things low-key: we accept a maximum of 25 clients at a time, so turnover is low and our sense of community is strong. You’ll easily form friendships with others and receive plenty of one-on-one care from our team. Our services are tailored to your needs and your progress will be closely monitored by highly trained addiction professionals at every step. We look at your life as a whole, taking every aspect of your lived experience into account and treating the causes of your problems rather than just the symptoms. We’re different than most Thailand alcohol rehabs in that we specialise in treating co-occurring mental health conditions and unresolved trauma which underlie many addictions and mental illnesses. We employ a variety of Eastern and Western treatment methods to holistically treat you in the way that suits you best.

Residential Alcohol Rehab: The Most Effective Form of Treatment

Inpatient rehab, also known as residential rehab, offers the highest level of care available. It entails living onsite at a rehab facility while you work through an intensive programme, usually for a minimum of 28 days. During this time, you’ll receive daily support from clinical professionals and a 24-hour nursing team. You will also be immersed in a community of recovery peers who you can share your experiences with and rely on for valuable support. Your daily schedule will be full of recovery-focused activities including a variety of counselling sessions, health and wellness practises and weekly group outings. Inpatient rehab is the best option for those who are chemically dependent or have more severe addictions or co-occurring disorders.

Co-occurring Alcoholism and Mental Illness

We offer specialised treatment for co-occurring alcoholism and mental health concerns such as trauma, depression and anxiety. Addiction and mental illness often go hand in hand — not only do many people who struggle with mental health disorders self-medicate with substances, but substance abuse often creates or exacerbates these issues. Studies show that it is vital to address any accompanying mental health issues in order to prevent them from triggering relapse in the future.

Relapse Prevention and Aftercare

Our support doesn’t end when you go home. We understand that recovery is a lifelong commitment that requires daily practice – that is why we emphasise sobriety maintenance during the entire course of your treatment programme. While you are here, you will work with your therapist to create a personalised relapse prevention plan. Once you complete treatment and return home, you will have access to weekly group aftercare counselling via virtual face-to-face sessions. You can take comfort in knowing you don’t have to go it alone – we are always just a click away.
