Where to go for Affordable Drug Treatment

If someone you love is suffering from drug addiction, you will know the pain of loss and the struggle it is for both of you to remain in a relationship. The addict is consumed by his or her need for the drugs that are ruining their life and cannot think of anything else. They cannot be trusted with responsibility, or to do what they say they are going to do, unless that is to get more drugs.

Unfortunately, they cannot help this terrible effect the drugs are having on them because taking drugs changes the way the brain works. To get off the drugs they need specialised drug rehab treatment.  And since they spend any money they get on drugs, it is usually their loved ones that have to pay for that treatment.  In Australia, the cost of drug rehabilitation at a facility such as Sivana Rehab can be prohibitive, given that it takes at least a month of full time care and can take longer, depending on the level of addiction.

People tend to seek treatment overseas, both for privacy and for the more affordable cost.  Bali and Thailand have traditionally been the two places people go, but in fact, Bali is the best option because it is far easier to get to and far more affordable than the Australian treatment.

In Bali, the treatment centre is located in a quiet, serene and beautiful setting that in itself will help to restore balance to the addict’s life. It is close to a major hospital should that be required and the staff are highly trained in treating drug addiction.  In fact, because of their very nature the health care team don’t judge or condemn those they treat. Instead, they are treated with kindness, compassion and respect.

12 Reasons to go Overseas for Drug Rehabilitation

Drug addiction is a terrible thing that often takes the life of the addict. But if they can get the right kind of help in time, it is possible to recover at least some of their life and go on to become a useful member of society. Some recovered addicts even spend their time helping other addicts to recover, or talking to people about the dangers of trying drugs in the first place.

Many of these people actually went overseas for their drug rehab rather than seeking treatment in Australia.  Why? Here are 12 reasons why people go overseas to places like Bali to seek treatment.

  • Overseas treatment is far more affordable than treatment in Australia.
  • Bali is a beautiful place to be and gets them away from the temptation to go back to their old life. And they can’t just walk out of the facility and return easily; they have to book a plane and pay the air fare, so they tend to stay for the duration.
  • Bali drug rehabilitation has a great recovery rate.
  • Bali is the easiest overseas drug rehab place to access, being easier to get to than Thailand.
  • When they or their loved ones look into it, the programmes for drug rehab are drawn up to suit the individual and they are encouraged to own it by deciding exactly what they want.
  • There is an aftercare program that helps them to cope with life after the rehabilitation is complete.
