Powerful stimulants such as amphetamines, often prescribed by doctors in the form of Adderall and Ritalin, are highly addictive because of their chemical composition which isn’t much different from methamphetamines. When misused for recreational purposes, they cause a prolonged surge of energy. The resulting crash and accompanying cravings often lead users to take more, causing them to build a tolerance and eventually develop an addiction.

Once your body adjusts to accommodate the presence of amphetamines, you might find it hard to function without them. Quitting suddenly can cause withdrawal symptoms such as:

  • Fatigue
  • Hypersomnia or insomnia
  • Agitation
  • Mood swings
  • Clinical depression
  • Intense psychological and physical cravings

At The Dawn, we understand how hard it can be to stop amphetamine abuse. That is why our amphetamine rehab in Thailand offers comprehensive detox and addiction treatment that helps you safely rid your body of toxicity and prepare yourself to confidently manage your life without the use of prescription stimulants.

Effects and Risks of Amphetamine Abuse

Short-term effects of amphetamine use include:

  • High blood pressure
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Increased body temperature
  • Dilated pupils
  • Increased respiration rate
  • Nervousness

Why Choose Amphetamine Addiction Treatment in Thailand at The Dawn

Private Resort-Style Accommodation at The Dawn Amphetamine Rehab Thailand

Clients at The Dawn know they are in good hands with our licensed team of addiction professionals, who all have extensive experience in treating addiction to prescription drugs, including prescription amphetamines.

Unlike larger rehabs, we take a highly personalised approach to addiction treatment: we treat you as an individual, not a number. Our low staff-to-client ratio ensures you receive plenty of one-on-one attention. And, our community of counsellors and recovery peers will take the time to get to know you, so you feel safe to express yourself in our non-judgmental space.


Inpatient Amphetamine Rehab is the Most Reliable Treatment Option

Unlike outpatient rehab, where access to required support is much more limited, in residential treatment, you will have access to support from our attentive team 24 hours a day, meaning you’ll never be alone during challenging moments – you will always have help when you need it. You will be 100-percent immersed in your recovery experience. The stresses and distractions of your work, family and social life are completely removed, allowing you all the time you need to focus on your personal growth.

How Our Treatment for Amphetamine Addiction Works Works 

Our highly personalised and intensive treatment programme centres on several main components: detox, addiction counselling and holistic wellness therapy.

Because amphetamine withdrawals can be uncomfortable and even dangerous, it’s important to detox under medical supervision and care. Many withdrawal symptoms aren’t easily detected and are only noticeable via a professional evaluation.

Whether or not you need detox before beginning amphetamine addiction treatment will be determined by a thorough initial assessment. If you do require detox, you will undergo the process right onsite at our peaceful riverside centre. We are staffed with an experienced team of medical professionals who will closely monitor you 24/7 and be available for any assistance you need, until your cravings subside and your body regains its balance.

Our amphetamine addiction treatment options centre on evidence-based methods such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), mindfulness-based cognitive behavioural therapy (MCBT) and 12-Step principles. While in treatment, you’ll attend:

  • Individual and group counselling
  • Behavioural therapies
  • Support groups

You will also receive a customised relapse prevention plan and online aftercare to ensure your continued sobriety well after completing primary treatment.

You will participate in a number of proven alternative therapies to support your counselling work and help you cultivate a self-care practice that will sustain your sobriety for years to come. These include:

  • Mindfulness meditation
  • Yoga
  • Massage therapy
  • Fitness exercise
  • Art therapy
  • Muay Thai boxing

You’ll also have full access to our gym, swimming pool and meditation spaces to help you de-stress and feel well every day.

If you’re physically dependent on amphetamines, your first step will likely be amphetamines detox. Not everyone requires this phase of treatment — this will be determined during an initial assessment prior to starting your treatment plan. We have a comprehensive medical detox facility onsite, so you can complete all stages of treatment in one location and easily transition from detox to therapy. Our centre is fully equipped with modern medical technology, and our medical staff are available at all hours.
After detox you’ll move on to addiction treatment, where you’ll stay in comfortable, private accommodation while working through an intensive daily programme. In this stage, we’ll focus on the underlying causes of your addiction using our own Twin Pillars approach. This unique approach to treatment combines evidence-based and innovative therapy and a complementary wellness regimen to ensure our clients have the best possible chance to maintain long-term recovery, sobriety and generally healthy living.

Amphetamine Rehab in Thailand – Leave Stimulants Behind for Good

When making important life changes like getting clean, doing so in a new place can greatly improve your chances of success. This is because removing yourself from your old using environment and the people, places and activities that tend to trigger your use, and getting a fresh perspective helps you begin to form new habits. Here at our peaceful facility in the countryside of Chiang Mai, in Northern Thailand, you will enjoy listening to the sounds of the Ping River flowing by, watching the sun set over the banana trees, and waking up to bird song in the morning – all a boon to your peace of mind and progress.

Our all-inclusive programme costs less than half the price of similar premium addiction programmes in the West
