Alcohol Rehab in Thailand at The Cabin Bangkok
The most common substance people are addicted to across the world is alcohol. Because alcohol is legal and its use is promoted in most countries, it can be difficult to notice when alcohol consumption becomes addiction. “Alcoholics” are the type of addicts most likely to seek counselling at The Cabin Bangkok.
For many clients, identifying alcohol abuse can be difficult due to the fact that many of their peers drink socially and experience little negative consequences. It is difficult to go anywhere in Thailand where alcohol is not consumed, and even alcohol related criminal offenses are barely acknowledged in Thailand (as compared to other types of drugs).
When alcohol use stops being a choice and starts to create a negative impact in one’s life, the harm can be seen in many ways:
• Difficulty with work performance, attendance and satisfaction.
• Trouble with or avoidance of family and social relationships.
• Financial difficulties.
• Increase in medical problems, or decrease in general physical health.
• Depression, isolation, anger, lack of motivation and hopelessness.
As every person is different, the patterns of alcoholism can be unique. For some people, their addiction involves daily drinking, but generally does not result in “binges”. This is known as maintenance drinking and may be more about avoiding withdrawal, than seeking oblivion. For some people, they can go days or weeks without a drink, but once they start drinking, they have difficulty stopping and may experience 2-3 day binges or even blackouts. Some people are what is known as poly-substance dependent, meaning addiction to two or more chemicals, with one of them usually being alcohol. These people may switch back and forth between chemicals, but rarely can go any period of time without something in their system.
Why Bangkok residents find successful counselling for alcohol addiction at The Cabin Bangkok
Detox and recovery from alcohol addiction is serious and should be undertaken only with the help of experienced professionals. Alcohol withdrawal is highly dangerous and if done incorrectly, may result in seizures, heart attack and death. At The Cabin Bangkok, we work closely with a psychiatrist who can prescribe medications to help minimise withdrawal dangers and discomfort, and assist with temporary hospital admission if necessary.
Once a client’s physical withdrawal is completed, it is essential that he/she continue their theraphy programme with no delay. It is even possible, for hospitalised clients, to begin counselling prior to their discharge. Our combined cognitive-behavioural and abstinence goal models of counselling allow the client to identify how their alcoholism developed, reveal traps and triggers that can lead to relapse, recognise recovery goals, learn new, adaptive coping skills and build a programme of recovery that, if followed, can ensure recovery from alcoholism as well as prevent substitution addiction to new or different substances. Because alcohol consumption is so prevalent in most cultures, we place special emphasis on how to avoid uncomfortable situations and navigate the “normal” world as a newly recovering person.
