Why Canadians find effective and affordable rehab treatment for alcohol abuse and addiction at The Cabin Chiang Mai
In a recent study by the Canadian Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), Canadians were found to drink 50% more alcohol than the global average. With 80% of the country’s population admitting to being regular drinkers, it is no surprise that alcoholism is a prevalent concern throughout all major cities such as Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal, Calgary and Edmonton – as well as, if not more so, smaller rural communities too.
As the most widely abused substance in Canada, alcohol contributes to more than 6,700 deaths each year via motor vehicle accidents, personal injuries resulting in death, and even murder and suicide while under the influence. Of the 2,541 people killed in roadway accidents across Canada in 2010, it is estimated that 1,082 of these deaths had driving under the influence of alcohol to blame.
Beyond that, CAMH also reports that alcohol is linked to more than 200 diseases and personal injuries. Diseases caused by alcohol include the well-known cirrhosis (liver disease) and heart arrhythmias, but there is also research to support the fact that abusive alcohol consumption can increase a woman’s chance of breast cancer – and these are just three examples of 200 various diseases and ailments caused by alcohol.
While these statistics may be frightening, it hasn’t exactly stopped Canadians from taking to the bottle. From 1996 to 2010, alcohol consumption in Canada went up by 13%, with 20% of drinkers shown to consume more than what the government deems healthy consumption.
In a country where alcohol consumption is so widely accepted, it is hard for Canadians to know when they have crossed the line into alcoholism – and when to get help. For those that do know they need help, finding an appropriate treatment centre in Canada can be difficult. As seen from the involvement of CAMH, alcohol and drug abusers can often only find treatment alongside people suffering from mental health disorders. While this treatment may be okay for some, treatment centres that can focus solely on addiction clients yield higher success rates.
Why The Cabin is the right choice for Canadians
For many Canadians, keeping a low-profile during recovery is important to maintain their professional and personal images, which is one of the reasons The Cabin is becoming an increasingly popular destination for alcohol addiction recovery for Canadians.
Located in Chiang Mai, Thailand – one of the world’s most travelled tourist destinations, The Cabin offers highly skilled, Western-trained counsellors in a world-class facility. Many of the counsellors have beaten addiction themselves, allowing them the ability to understand exactly what each of their clients are feeling.
At just a fraction of the cost of rehabilitation centres back west, clients will enjoy private villas amid lush tropical gardens, and can opt to sunbathe by the private pools in their free time or take advantage of the many excursions offered on a weekly basis including zip-lining, elephant trekking, cooking classes and more. For those concerned with keeping up appearances, these excursions are an excellent opportunity to take ‘holiday photos’ to show to friends, family and co-workers back home.
