Alcohol addiction is one of the major problems experienced by many people in the world. Many people hold the false conception that it is just a matter of having the desire to stop drinking. However, alcoholism is more complicated than we perceive it to be. If you suffer from alcoholism and wish to get rid of it, you need to get the help of any of the best alcohol treatment centers. With professional help and support from family members, you can stop drinking and rebuild your life on your own will. At Drug & Alcohol Rehab Asia, we improvise treatment programs regularly and are flexible to adapt to changes, according to the demands of your condition.
Alcohol Treatment Centers and Detoxification
Detoxification is an important component of any alcohol treatment program, when needed. Detox helps minimize the withdrawal symptoms and helps your body to adjust to not having alcohol. Alcohol treatment centers consider your medical history, health condition, frequency of alcohol use and many other factors to develop an alcohol detox protocol. People going through detox can experience a range of withdrawal symptoms, from mild to severe depending on the level of physical dependence. However, these symptoms can be attenuated through the use of appropriate medication. For clients at Drug & Alcohol Rehab Asia, if detox is needed, a detox program is provided by our partnering hospital, Bangkok Hospital – Pattaya. Bangkok Hospital is JCI accredited with well-trained, professional providers.
Alcohol Treatment Centers & Behavioral Therapy
It is important to understand that detoxification is only a step to treat alcoholism and is not a complete treatment. Also, remember, not all persons will need detox. You need to undergo the behavioral therapies offered by alcohol treatment centers. Some alcohol treatment centers also offer family therapy to help your family members understand your situation and support your recovery. At Drug & Alcohol Rehab Asia, we provide cognitive behavioral therapy which helps you a) recognize the situations in which you are most likely to use drugs or alcohol; b) avoid these situations when appropriate; and c) and cope more effectively with a range of problems and problematic behaviors associated with substance abuse.
Our therapists and counselors work with you to identify the thoughts and feelings that lead to relapse. We also provide life skills training to cope with your problems. The therapists help you to learn to develop healthy lifestyle habits.
Alcohol Treatment Centers & Dual Diagnosis Treatment
If you are under the care of a psychiatrist or psychologist before coming to Drug & Alcohol Rehab Asia, we will work closely with him/her to make sure your current treatment for any mental health issues is appropriately considered in your recovery program. For example, you may be taking medication prescribed by your psychiatrist. We will work with your doctor to assure that your medication protocol continues while you work your recovery program at Drug & Alcohol Rehab Asia.
After completing your residential rehab program, you will need to continue with treatment in an aftercare program. Aftercare programs continue to support you with treatment in those early, crucial days of recovery when you get back to your home environment. During your rehab program at Drug & Alcohol Rehab Asia, our therapists with help you with an aftercare plan and connect you with an aftercare therapist near your home. We have a large network of aftercare specialists around the world that we regularly work with. If you come from an area where we cannot locate a suitable therapist, we have several counselors who specialize working on the telephone and videoconference.
