United Arab Emiratis find effective, compassionate, and affordable rehab for alcohol addiction at The Cabin Chiang Mai
The United Arab Emirates, also referred to as the Emirates or simply UAE, has a population of over 9 million individuals, with 1.4 million of them Emirati citizens and 7.8 million of them expatriates! The Islamic-ruled country maintains tight control over concerns like dress code, public decency, and drug and alcohol consumption. Sharia law is the overriding legal code, and the punishment for alcohol or drug use is incredibly severe. The sale and consumption of alcohol by Muslims is forbidden in the UAE, but there are discreet shops all over the nation where people can buy alcohol if they please. It is hard to police these sales, but buyers face substantial criminal penalties if caught.
As Dubai is a major international hub for business and travel, there are establishments that cater to non-Muslims who desire alcohol. Alcohol is generally sold in bar settings in most hotels in the area, and non-Muslims can apply for an alcohol permit that allows them to legally purchase alcohol at stores for home consumption. Though the permit process is in place to enable eligible individuals to drink alcohol at home, most Emiratis who want alcohol are relegated to the black market. If they are caught drinking and driving, the punishment is severe. If they appear intoxicated in public, the punishment is extreme.
Drinking is especially taboo in UAE, so Emiratis who find themselves addicted to alcohol often stay quiet about their affliction. Instead of seeking help or asking their families to support their rehabilitation, they suffer quietly and don’t do anything about it until it is too late. According to the National Rehabilitation Centre of the UAE, 5.3% of the total deaths in the Emirates each year are related to alcohol or illegal drug abuse. Unfortunately, there aren’t any good answers in the UAE for addicts who want help. The social stigma alone prevents most Emiratis from seeking help. But there is an answer – The Cabin Chiang Mai.
Why The Cabin is the right choice for Emiratis
Just a short flight from the UAE, The Cabin is located in Chiang Mai, Thailand and is a world renowned treatment centre for patients who desire an effective and affordable solution to their alcohol addiction. Patients who choose The Cabin Chiang Mai to combat their alcohol addiction will discover a world-class treatment and rehabilitation centre that is situated in a lush corner of Thailand right along the famous Ping River, where patients will find a soothing environment, Thai-style bungalow accommodations, and a peaceful and relaxing energy that helps their journey toward an addiction-free lifestyle. This resort-style treatment centre feels more like a high-end getaway than a rehabilitation facility, but that’s the idea – a comfortable and calming environment that is ideal for helping patients recover from their addiction.
At The Cabin, patients can choose from either an English or Arabic-speaking rehabilitation program. Therapy sessions are facilitated by either English or Arabic-speaking professionals, and Western-style treatment options are seamlessly combined with holistic elements to create a treatment process that results in a 96% success rate. The English-language program combines standard treatment steps, physical therapy, holistic treatments, and more, and draws upon the expertise of therapists, drug addiction counsellors, medical doctors, and concierge staff. While the Arabic-language rehab process employs the use of native Arabic-speakers who fully understand the cultural needs and sensitivities of our Emirati patients. The Arabic-language treatment program offers the same high standards of treatment as our English-language program and remains culturally sensitive at all times, including family inclusion practices and offering halal foods for Arabic guests.
Patients at The Cabin Chiang Mai will be busy working through the various stages of treatment during their alcohol addiction rehab treatment, but they’ll also have an exciting opportunity to explore Chiang Mai and participate in many planned outings. The city of Chiang Mai is rich with historical sites, ancient temples and ruins, and also offers a wide range of things to do – from elephant rides to zip lining through the jungle canopy. Patients will reside comfortably within private, Thai-style bungalows during their stay at The Cabin, and the quiet, serene setting and deep green tropical foliage provides the perfect environment for an effective rehabilitation program.
