Inpatient and outpatient drug and alcohol rehab
The Chiang Mai Addiction Foundation is pleased to be able to offer world class inpatient rehabilitation services at our addictions recovery centre in Thailand.
Patients choose to invest a period of their lives in rehabilitation because their lives have become unmanageable under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. Acknowledging the existence of a problem and choosing to seek treatment in the first major step towards successful rehabilitation.
The Chiang Mai Addiction Foundation offers both inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation in our facility in the city of Chiang Mai, Thailand.
What is the difference between inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation
Inpatient rehab involves the patient staying at our centre, 24 hours a day while outpatient rehab will see you visiting our centre a few times a week to take part in our addiction recovery program.
Many patients will enjoy both a period of inpatient and a outpatient care during their process of recovery.
Inpatient rehabilitation services
What will happen when you arrive at the Chiang Mai Addiction Foundation?
The first step in your treatment program will be the undertaking of a thorough clinical and medical assessment. If required, this will be followed by an initial period of supervised off-site detox in a local world-class hospital before beginning your inpatient rehabilitation with us.
Primary patients live in our on-site accommodation with all there requirements met and provided for. During treatment, each patient is assigned a treatment team including a designated counsellor. The team is responsible for establishing an individualised care plan designed to best support your ongoing recovery.
Every day consists of a full schedule of treatment activities including individual and group therapy, educational lectures and participation in the 12 step recovery program.
Every client has the privacy of their own room with en-suite bathroom and television. Support groups are available when needed, and all personal needs will be addressed and taken care of.
How long does rehabilitation take?
The time required for inpatient care varies from person to person. It has been observed in clinical research that those who choose a longer period of inpatient rehabilitation have a higher chance of achieving success. A period of between 1-3 months of primary care is advised.
There is an old adage “once an addict, always an addict”. Upon completion of your inpatient stay, it is recommended to continue with participation in outpatient rehab. Returning back to the normal world will include returning to the situations and temptations that caused the addiction problem in the first place. Ongoing care can help the individual in this important period of relearning how to relate to the world around them, and grow in the confidence to choose a life of sobriety.
Outpatient addiction rehab in Chiang Mai Thailand
Our outpatient recovery program is designed for individuals of adult age who are seeking treatment for alcoholism, addiction and codependency. This program provides assessment, drug screening and primary treatment services. Patients live at home and travel to the main centre, where they participate in treatment at the time of their choice.
Pending medical and clinical assessment, intensive outpatient drug and alcohol recovery may be recommended for individuals who do not require medically supervised detoxification, live within a reasonable driving distance from the addictions recovery center and/or individuals who may have completed a residential treatment program and are looking for additional support in their ongoing recovery.
Treatment in the outpatient program is an experience focused on helping you to master the challenges of life, and grow in the confidence needed to remain sober. Special emphasis is placed on the issues occurring in the home and work environments that can lead to relapse.
Patients are asked to attend 12–Step recovery meetings in the community and begin establishing a sober support system. Additionally, family and/or loved ones are encouraged to participate in the centre’s programme and may be invited to attend family counselling or groups when appropriate.
The outpatient rehabilitation program gives patients the opportunity to continue living at home and working in the community with the knowledge that support is close at hand.
What can be gained from a period of rehabilitation?
Upon completion of treatment, patients possess greater awareness and self confidence. Armed with a better understanding of not only themselves but also the disease of addiction, they possess the tools needed to ensure a successful and addiction-free life.
