Millions of people suffer from severe dependence on alcohol and drugs, finding themselves in difficult situations that could ultimately undermine their reputations, relationships and personal lives. If you or a loved one are affected by any kind of substance addiction, you may be in need of professional care. A detox clinic in Thailand can be the setting for your first step on the path to recovery.
Set amid the lush hills of Chiang Mai, Hesten Hill Rehab puts you in a calm and pristine setting to help kickstart your journey to recovery. Recovery from alcohol and drug addiction requires a measure of inner peace, and our luxury detox centre in Thailand provides a comfortable environment for you to focus on personal healing and long-term sobriety.
DRUG & ALCOHOL DETOX
Detox: the first stage of rehab treatment
The withdrawal symptoms for drugs and alcohol can be serious enough to put a person’s life under threat. For this reason alone, you should always be under expert care throughout the whole process. Detoxification under medical supervision can help ease your withdrawal symptoms, since medical professionals are able to take care and provide appropriate medications for each case.
Detox is only the first stage of complete treatment for addiction. Once you have undergone detox, which merely treats the physical symptoms of addiction, it is recommended that you enter a comprehensive addiction treatment programme that addresses both your physical health and the underlying psychological causes that led to your addiction.
Why inpatient detox centre is recommended
Generally, detox is often much safer and more effective when it is done in an inpatient setting – whether it is in a hospital or an inpatient rehab – as it allows for medical supervision and 24-hour care. Inpatient facilities provide a safe place to recover and reduces the risk of relapse, as the complete absence of drugs and alcohol in inpatient facilities helps eliminate temptations. By contrast, an outpatient arrangement may have alcohol and drugs well within reach.
Hesten Hill Rehab Thailand’s inpatient setting allows us to counteract your withdrawal symptoms, while providing immediate medical attention when required. In addition to clearing away the possibility of old habits and temptations, the trained staff at our inpatient facility can provide psychological and emotional support around the clock.
Detox and treatment in Thailand at Hesten Hill Rehab
Our experienced team at Hesten Hill Rehab will design the best detox plan for your addiction to alcohol or any other drug. If you are suffering from an addiction, be it mild or severe, our detox treatment in Thailand is an ideal place for your recovery. No matter what substance addiction you have, proper detoxification and stabilisation are vital.
When you have stabilised and completed your detox treatment, our counsellor will work closely with you to determine the best treatment plan to address your specific circumstances. Hesten Hill Rehab will cater to all your unique needs, offering a full detox treatment along with a comprehensive rehab programme.
During detox, alcohol is completely flushed from your system. Withdrawal symptoms may soon appear and can range from mild, moderate, to serious, but our medical experts are always there to monitor and alleviate your condition. You will also receive medication to help relieve the discomfort. Depending on how much and how long you have been drinking, it may take up to 7 days for your body to detox from alcohol completely.
Since there are many different types of addictive drugs, and each works differently on the body, drug detox can produce a wide range of withdrawal symptoms. Though typically not as severe as some cases of alcohol withdrawal, symptoms from drug withdrawal can nevertheless be very uncomfortable. Our doctor can prescribe medications to prevent complications and alleviate any discomfort you may be experiencing.
Withdrawal symptoms during detox
Withdrawal symptoms are the unpleasant side effects that come from quitting a substance that your mind and body have become dependent on. These symptoms may vary from flu-like fevers that last around five days, to seizures that could affect you for either a few days or a few weeks. Due to the discomfort and danger that may arise from the initial period of withdrawal, medical supervision by qualified professionals is necessary.
Factors that affect the severity of the symptoms include the duration and severity of the substance abuse, the type and method of substance consumption, underlying genetic traits, and physical and mental health conditions.
Mental withdrawal symptoms may include:
loss of appetite
and lack of concentration
Potential physical symptoms consist of:
headaches and dizziness
a racing heart or skipped heartbeats
muscular aches and sweating
In extreme cases of drug or alcohol withdrawal, detox will be arranged at Chiang Mai Ram Hospital – our partner and one of Thailand’s leading medical institutions. For other cases, detox can be completed inside Hesten Hill Rehab’s private detox clinic in Thailand.
