Sex Addiction Rehab in Thailand
Learn to Have Healthy Sex and Relationships

Does it feel like your life lately has been changing for the worse? Are your sexual habits the common thread between everything that’s going wrong? Do you desperately try to keep anyone from finding out? For many sex addicts, who cheat on partners they care about, compromise relationships that are important to them or watch porn so excessively that it cuts into time they should spend working or meeting their obligations, behaviour like this isn’t a choice. It’s a disorder.

The negative consequences of sex addiction hurt you and those around you. And since abstinence is not realistic for most people, it is very difficult to self-treat. Triggers can’t be entirely avoided, because we are surrounded by images and messages about sex on a regular basis. However, at The Dawn, which our client’s consider to be one of the best rehabs abroad, we offer effective sexual addiction treatment options that can be used to combat this addiction and take back your life.

  • Prostitution
  • Pornography

At The Dawn a drug and alcohol rehab in Thailand, our highly certified clinical team is specialised in treating this complex disorder. We believe in taking the time to get to know you and providing you with a high level of personal attention.

Why Inpatient Sex Addiction Therapy is the Most Effective Option

There are many advantages of inpatient rehab for sexual addiction. A key component of effective addiction is being removed from your triggers and negative influences – being away from the people, places and situations that trigger this behaviour makes it easier for you to keep the focus on your recovery. Inpatient rehab also provides 24/7 support and supervision, so you can always ask for help when you need it. And, in residential rehab, you’ll have access to a wide variety of therapy options, such as experiential therapy groups, exercise, meditation, massage therapy and recreational outings.

How Our Sex Addiction Treatment Works

The Dawn offers a comprehensive sex addiction counselling programme that’s tailored to your requirements to give you the best chance of recovery. We use a holistic and non-religious approach that people of any cultural background can use and relate to. Our Twin Pillars treatment model is designed to create the ideal balance between rehab and wellness; work and relaxation.

Comprehensive Sex Addiction Counselling

Our counselling for sex addicts focuses on rehabilitation and gives you the tools you need to overcome your undesired behaviour. We utilise evidence-based methods such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) and the 12 Steps to help you correct negative thinking patterns, deal with your emotions from a place of calm and build relationships that will support your recovery. You will receive intensive individual and group therapy, as well as a customised relapse prevention plan and structured online aftercare support to help you prevent relapse and maintain the practices you learn in our sex rehab Thailand.

Holistic Wellness Services

Through our robust wellness programme, you will develop the mental strength and key tools you need to build a better future. Therapies we use to support your development and encourage your well-being include:

  • Fitness exercise
  • Yoga
  • Mindfulness meditation
  • Massage therapy

These work together to reduce your stress, improve your health and help you process emotions that come up in your counselling sessions in a non-damaging way.

Our Sex Addiction Rehab Centre in Thailand is a Safe, Confidential Space for Healing

Shame and secrecy are hallmarks of sex addiction – but that shouldn’t stop you from getting the help you need. Here in Thailand, you’ll be at a safe distance from your home community, and you can approach your therapy work without the extra mental burden of worrying about your confidentiality. We are strictly non-judgmental: you will finally feel free to talk about your concerns in both one-on-one and group therapy.

You’ll enjoy the peace and quiet that our idyllic riverside sanctuary offers, and each day will be completely dedicated to restoring your wellness. And, you will have the opportunity to make the most of your trip to Thailand by exploring Chiang Mai on our weekend excursions.
