When clients stay with us, they will get the opportunity to explore many of Thailand’s wonders and engage in fun-filled
activities such as snorkelling off the pristine beaches of Koh Larn and visiting elephant sanctuaries in Ayutthaya, as well as visiting floating
markets around Bangkok (and much more). We truly offer something for everybody.
Going on excursions can be a powerful tool for those in recovery from addiction and alcoholism. Here are some of the benefits:
Distraction from triggers: One of the biggest challenges for people in recovery is avoiding triggers that may lead to relapse. Going on an excursion can provide a welcome distraction from these triggers and give the individual time to focus on something other than their addiction. It’s also a form of exposure therapy helping clients slowly acclimatise to life without drugs and alcohol in a supportive environment.
Opportunity to learn new skills: Many excursions offer the opportunity to learn new skills,
whether it's learning to snorkel, rock climb, or kayak. These new skills can provide a sense of accomplishment and boost self-esteem,
which can be crucial in the early stages of recovery. At Horizon Rehab Center we also offer Muay Thai classes, various art classes, and Thai cooking classes.
Bonding with others in recovery: Excursions often bring people together in a way that allows them to bond and form supportive
relationships. These relationships can be especially important for those in recovery, as they can provide a sense of community
Getting out of the daily routine: Breaking up the monotony of daily life can be beneficial for anyone,
but it can be especially important for those in recovery. Excursions provide a chance to get out of the usual routine and do
something different, which can help to prevent boredom and restlessness.
Improved physical and mental health: Going on an excursion can also have physical and mental health benefits.
Physical activities, such as hiking or kayaking, can improve overall fitness and help to reduce stress. And spending
time in nature has been shown to have a positive impact on mental health, including reducing symptoms of depression and anxiety.
Going on excursions can be a powerful tool for those in recovery from addiction, dual diagnosis, and trauma.
It provides an opportunity for clients to learn to love life again. We have often heard from clients that they
laughed and truly enjoyed themselves for the first time, in a long time…during an excursion.
