While it doesn’t gain as much media attention as ice or opioid addiction, ketamine abuse is a widespread and dangerous problem. Ketamine remains popular in party and club scenes, and its tranquilising and dissociative effects can put users at risk of serious harm. Though ketamine is commonly thought to be non-addictive and harmless, the fact is that this powerful anaesthetic has the potential to cause severe psychological dependence. Those who use it heavily or for an extended period of time should seek professional help for getting sober and preventing relapse.
The Dawn offers informed, high-quality ketamine addiction treatment. We have extensive experience in helping people successfully recover from ketamine abuse and the physical and psychological damage it’s caused – and we can help you, too.
We aim to make our admissions process as simple and clear as possible. Our dedicated team is always here to help 24/7.
We co-ordinate treatment for people suffering with mental health conditions as well as substance abuse disorders.
Ketamine can have significant side effects, which are more acute when the drug is taken in high doses or over a long period of time. These include:
The Dawn is known for its friendly community and small, personal atmosphere. Here, you’ll never be judged – you can feel safe to be yourself, share your story with others and lean on your counsellors and peers for support. Our high staff-to-client ratio means you’ll receive all the personal attention you need. Unlike at larger rehabs which sometimes house over 100 people at a time, you won’t feel like a number. We see the whole you – and we’ll make sure your treatment plan is personalised accordingly so you get the most out of your time with us.
While outpatient addiction treatment is helpful in some situations, inpatient treatment offers the highest level of support, and is the most effective option for those seeking real, lasting change. In residential treatment, every day is filled with activities dedicated to advancing your recovery progress, from one-on-one counselling to experiential groups to therapeutic recreational outings. And, your usual stresses and distractions will be minimised, giving you all the time and space you need to focus on your healing process.
Our intensive treatment programme is personalised to suit your specific needs, and consists of several key components: detox, counselling and wellness therapy.
At our beautiful riverside facility in the countryside of Chiang Mai, in Northern Thailand, you’ll feel comfortable and relaxed. This puts you in an optimal mind-set for treatment, and provides just the setting you need to gain some perspective on your addiction and its role in your life. There are plenty of activities nearby, so you’ll have the chance to experience some of Thailand’s amazing food, culture and eco-adventures on weekends.
We believe in healing the whole person. You will receive intensive psychotherapy, but meditation, relaxation, and recreational activities will all play an important therapeutic role in your treatment. Here’s an example of what a typical day looks like at The Dawn:
