Bali, an alternative to Thailand Rehab


Thailand located in Asian, is a popular holiday location and home to tourist hot spots such as the temple of Wat Arun, Wat Pho and the Emerald Buddha Temple (Wat Phra Kaew). Locations such as Phuket, Pattaya and Phi Phi island are also famous for their attractions.

Medical tourism has resulted in great deals being available for addiction recovery and people choose overseas rehab also for the privacy and confidentiality aspects as well as the affordable cost.

Many people worry about how the addiction rehab process will affect their life. Before entering a rehab, there are important principles which need to be considered in addiction treatment, such as:

  • There is no one-size-fits-all for addiction treatment, different programs might be needed for different individuals.
  • Addiction needs to be dealt with as early as possible, and it requires enough time to assure a better result.
  • Mental health evaluation is typically necessary as it is often connected with addiction. Addiction affects both your behavior and your mental state.
  • Group therapy and activities involving other individuals or even family members are commonly applied in treatment.
  • Detoxification or cleansing of the body from substances is normally required at the start of the rehab process. In some cases, further medication to ease withdrawal symptoms may be given (such as prescribed drugs) under medical supervision.

Once the substance is removed, you may experience withdrawal symptoms. Depending on the type of drugs you have been using and how often you use them, the withdrawal symptoms may vary.

Some typical withdrawal symptoms may include trembling or shaking, muscle tension, nausea, sweating, headaches, trouble breathing, extreme depression and anxiety, inability to sleep, or even pain, cramping, seizures, stroke, etc.

Many Thai locals choose to take up Drug and Alcohol treatment at local addiction centres in Bangkok and locations such as Chiang Mai and Thailand has some great local options including the famous Dara Rehab, and The Cabin in Chiang Mai, however many want to get away from their local area and seek treatment in other locations.   Rehab in Bali is the perfect choice for these people.

Similar to Bali, Thailand is surrounded by beautiful nature, exotic beaches, jungles, and mountains. People who seek an escape from addiction problems will find peace and avoid stress, which typically helps them avoid relapse triggers.

Although Thailand has sunny warm weather throughout the year, it can get very hot during summer. Air conditioners solve the challenge for indoor areas, but outdoor activities might need to be reconsidered.

Often people from Australia and New Zealand choose Bali instead of Thailand as it’s closer and so they can get immediate treatment for their addiction.

While direct and single stop flights from Sydney to Bangkok take 9 to 12 hours, it takes only 6 to 9 hours from Sydney to Bali direct.

Overseas rehab locations like Bali and Thailand provide many options for outdoor activities as well as alternative therapies to support the recovery program.  In Bali Beginnings, you may choose from a huge range of activities including surfing, diving, boating, arts and craft, gardening, trekking through jungles, mountain biking, experiencing the spiritual essence and culture of beautiful Bali, and more.

Included in our treatment program, you will also get involved in visiting local community centres and schools to volunteer your time to help those in need. The reason? Because the best way to build self-esteem is to do estimable things. We want you to reconnect with your higher self, the generous you, the one who cares, the person you might have thought was gone forever.

Inspite of its affordable cost in some Thailand rehabs, there are only a few options for those seeking something other than luxury rehab, while also looking for experienced expat clinical staff who can support them in their recovery from prescription or non-prescription medications or alcohol.

At Rehab Bali we treat a large number of clients coming from Thailand and in particular those who have consider Thai Rehabs in Chiang Mai and other Thai rehab locations.
