DARA Rehab offers a truly unique alcohol and drug treatment program. Here’s a brief description of the components of our holistic rehabilitation program:
Upon arrival in Trat, Drug & Alcohol Rehab Asia clients are initially transported to our partnering hospital Bangkok Hospital-Trat—a JCI-accredited private hospital— for a medical check-up and overnight stay. You will be evaluated by specialists at the hospital to determine if detox is needed (and if you need a longer stay than 24 hours). Some persons detoxing may only need medication on an outpatient basis. When you are ready to leave the hospital, you will be taken by private car to our drug and alcohol rehab center’s beautiful island location.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): CBT has a strong level of empirical support for the treatment of substance abuse and alcoholism. CBT is a short-term, focused approach to help substance dependent individuals become abstinent from alcohol and other substances. CBT focuses on helping clients to
a) RECOGNIZE the situations in which they are most likely to use drugs or alcohol;
b) AVOID these situations when appropriate; and
c) COPE more effectively with a range of problems and problematic behaviors associated with substance abuse.
Group and individual sessions included.
