Western Comfort With Eastern Touch

An Innovative and Trusted Addiction Rehabilitation Service

Deciding to seek help for addiction is a vital first step toward a healthier future. People find that there are numerous treatment options available to them, each with their own benefits. The advantages of each option depend on the person’s circumstances and the severity of their addiction.

Types of Treatment for Addiction

Some people choose to engage in ‘outpatient’ treatment in their home country. Outpatient treatment for addiction offers benefits such as flexibility, cost-effectiveness, access to support systems, tailored treatment, and a gradual transition back to everyday life. This remains a viable first-line treatment option for those whose addiction has not progressed to a level where it has become unmanageable - meaning the sufferer is still able to fulfill some of their daily obligations such as work while in active addiction.

Another option for those looking for addiction treatment is residential, or inpatient rehabilitation. Inpatient treatment for addiction is typically considered the most effective solution for individuals who:


Have a severe addiction to a substance or behaviour and would require a higher level of medical and/or clinical supervision.

Have co-occurring disorders, such as mental health issues or chronic medical conditions, that would best be addressed in a carefully controlled environment.

Have perhaps tried to manage their addiction in an outpatient clinical setting and have failed to maintain sobriety.

Have a high risk of relapse in their current environment due to work, family, peers etc.

Require a medical detox.

Would benefit the most from a long-term treatment program.

Have a history of trauma or abuse that needs to be addressed in a safe and secure setting.


Drug Rehab in Western Countries

Rehabilitation centers in Western countries generally offer high quality treatment and evidence-based methods, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, 12-step facilitation, group therapy as well as EMDR and other trauma-informed approaches.

However, there can be several issues with inpatient treatment as an option in a person's home country. Some of these may include

Limited Treatment Options: Inpatient treatment facilities in some countries may not offer the same range of treatment options as those in other countries, which can limit the effectiveness of treatment.

Waiting Lists: Inpatient treatment facilities in some countries may have long waiting lists, which can delay the start of treatment and prolong the addiction.

Stigma: There may be a societal stigma surrounding addiction and seeking treatment in a person's home country, which can make it difficult for individuals to access the help they need. This can be particularly true in Middle Eastern Countries

Triggers and Distractions: Being in a familiar environment can make it difficult for individuals to focus on their recovery, as they may be surrounded by triggers and distractions that contributed to their addiction.

Cost: Inpatient treatment can be expensive, and some countries may not have the same level of government funding or insurance coverage for addiction treatment as others.

Privacy Concerns: Some individuals may prefer to receive treatment away from their home country to protect their privacy and maintain confidentiality.

Cultural Barriers: In some cases, cultural barriers can make it difficult for some individuals to relate to the treatment or connect with the staff.

International inpatient treatment may offer a solution for some of these issues as it allows individuals to access specialised treatment options in a different cultural setting, with a higher level of privacy, and with less societal stigma or cultural barriers.

Why a Thailand Rehab?

For many years now, people have been choosing Thailand as their residential treatment option…and for good reason. Thailand offers a range of benefits for people looking for a solution to their crippling addiction.


Limited Treatment Options: Inpatient treatment facilities in some countries may not offer the same range of treatment options as those in other countries, which can limit the effectiveness of treatment.

Better Value for Money: International rehab in places like Thailand can offer a similar standard of treatment at a fraction of the cost of Western countries. This means you can afford to extend your treatment period, which studies show leads to a stronger recovery. The Horizon Rehab Center offers a phased program that facilitates longer-term treatment options while still remaining affordable and effective.

Privacy Protection: Rehab abroad also allows you to protect your privacy and talk about your recovery on your terms, without fear of damaging your career or social status. The Dawn Rehab Centre prioritises client confidentiality.

Perspective: Committing to rehab abroad also gives you the opportunity to step back, recharge, and make a new plan for your life. Being in a new place that fully supports your growth and recovery can be incredibly beneficial for your journey. Additionally, immersing yourself in a different culture can open your eyes to new perspectives and ways of life.
