Rehab Gold Coast

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text=”REHAB GOLD COAST” font_container=”tag:h1|text_align:left” use_theme_fonts=”yes”][vc_column_text]Addiction is one of the few areas of life that can be classed as truly non discriminatory, with drug and alcohol addiction being the most common. Rehab facilities and treatment centres are designed to help addicts overcome their addiction. The methods used by trained professionals generally offer the greatest chance at success. People living in the Gold Coast are privileged with an abundance of top quality care both locally but also abroad without having to go to far.


Some feel that they can use drugs (narcotics) or alcohol recreationally, especially if the substance is legal. But once they begin using, dependency and addiction can occur very quickly. Much depends on their background the type of drug they are using.

As the addiction takes over, they begin to lose control of their life and it can descend into a downward spiral. Sometimes this decent can be slowly over years. Sometimes the decent can be rapid, ripping a hole within the life they have created! Their sole purpose can become the searching out of the drug and use it. They may be able to hide their use from family and friends for a time, but eventually their addiction becomes evident. If this is the case, in many ways we hope becomes evident sooner, rather than later.


Rehab and Treatment facilities that specialize in addiction provide the best help. They use proven methods to treat addiction and reduce the chance of a future relapse.

They can treat a wide range of addictions. While most facilities offer the same basic care, each offers unique benefits. They can also contain a range of different styles of treatment, some of which may suit people more than others after all we are all individuals.

There are essentially two basic types of rehabs—inpatient and outpatient. Each offers benefits and choosing which one is right for you is the first step.


Inpatient describes a facility that requires patients to live in the facility during treatment. Removing tempting situations in the outside world can be extremely helpful for those who worry about withdrawal or relapse.

Each day they attend individual and group therapy sessions that help them understand their addiction better. They also attend educational classes that identify the negative consequences of addiction.


Outpatient offers many of the same services, but the addict remains at home in their daily routine. Several times a week they may be asked to check in for a breathalyzer or urinalysis.

They also attend individual and group therapy sessions similar to inpatient treatment. Educational classes are often included in these sessions. These are to inform the addict of the negative effects of addiction.


There are several benefits to either type of rehab or the many different styles of rehab they offer. If you live on the Gold Coast, you are easily placed to access a range of excellent treatments. Inpatient is more intensive and reduces the risk of relapse. Outpatient allows you to maintain schooling or a career while still receiving help. Choosing one that best fits your needs will produce the best results. Other factors to be considered are quality of treatment and cost. Some people prefer to remain in the Gold Coast and stick to what they know and trust. However, more and more facilities are starting up in far cheaper locations.

Countries and areas such as Thailand (Bangkok), Indonesia (Bali) or India (New Delhi) can offer quality rehab recovery, at a far cheaper rate. This rate is generally reduced due to the considerably cheaper costs associated with setting up a site in these locations.

While they can be equally as good as Australian or Western facilities, it is important to check the credentials. Know where you may be heading or sending someone before you part with your money! A good site will always be able to show why they value their treatment and what they have to offer in terms of recovery, staff and qualifications to head the project up!

Other people may choose a stay away for the other benefits these places have to offer. For instance Thailand is known for its perfect beaches, shopping and cooking. Indonesia, Bali especially, is known for its excellent surfing, diving and other outdoor pursuits. India is also know for its creative film industry, culture and also its food.

All three are also well renowned for their sites of beauty, spirituality, diverse cultures and religion as well as the friendliness of the people. Finally a lot also find it beneficial to be so far away from their existing lives and the temptation surrounding them. While these are all excellent additions to any trip, it is worth remembering that the quality of recovery should still be the most important factor.
