How it works
How it works
At Bali Beginnings, we support our clients every step of the way – through the initial detox process all the way to providing ongoing support when they return home. Whilst our clients’ journeys will be unique, the following steps will help you to understand our rehabilitation programme.
1. MEDICALLY ASSISTED DETOX
The first step for many of our clients is to safely remove the addictive substance(s) from their body. Our medical doctor and 24-hour onsite nursing team provide the medical support our clients may need to guide them through the initial detox phase. A personalised withdrawal regime is devised for each client. These regimes are based on gold-standard international guidelines for safety and clinical practice. Our medical team monitors the health of all clients throughout the entirety of their stay, which includes daily vital signs monitoring and regular reviews with our medical doctor.
2. THERAPEUTIC PROGRAMME.
As our clients start to enjoy the physical and psychological benefits that come with being free of addictive substances, the clinical team support them to engage with the therapeutic programme. This includes a range of group and individual work with our highly experienced team. All of our clients attend educational groups and workshops which cover a wide range of issues related to recovery from addiction, in addition to more general principles of well-being. The therapeutic programme involves regular individual psychotherapy sessions with our clinical psychologists as well as individual 12 Step sessions with our support workers.
Throughout the course of their stay, we seek to involve the loved ones of our clients as much as possible. This includes regular updates, invitations to take part in therapeutic activities and an opportunity to engage with a joint therapy appointment with our clients and their clinical psychologist.
In addition to the clinical aspects of our therapeutic programme, our clients enjoy a range of holistic activities including yoga, meditation, exercise and massage. Our programme also creates space for leisure activities such as surfing or visiting areas of outstanding cultural or natural beauty in Bali.
3. RELAPSE PREVENTION PLANNING AND BEYOND.
As our clients prepare to make the transition from our treatment centre to home life, they are supported to prepare a comprehensive relapse prevention plan. This involves reaching out to local contacts in the Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA) communities at home.
All clients are encouraged to take part in weekly, aftercare online groups which are provided free of charge by Bali Beginnings. We also support our clients to organise ongoing therapeutic support if required and we provide flexible options to return to Bali Beginnings should they want ´top-up´ support to facilitate their continued recovery.
