Why Canadians find effective and affordable rehab treatment for drug addiction at The Cabin Chiang Mai
Unfortunately, drug and substance abuse in Canada is not only prevalent in big cities such as Toronto, Montreal, Calgary, Edmonton or Vancouver. The effects of drug abuse can be seen in rural and urban centres alike, and drug abuse doesn’t affect only the user – it affects entire communities and the country as a whole.
Each year, more than 47,000 people across Canada die from drug-related deaths and that doesn’t include the thousands of injuries and disabilities that are also caused by drug-related incidents. In fact, 33% of the 12,978 drivers killed in road accidents from 2000 to 2007 on Canadian roadways were under the influence of drugs.
The most common drugs found in fatally injured drivers were marijuana, stimulants such as cocaine and methamphetamines, and narcotic analgesics such as pills containing codeine or even morphine or heroine.
A growing addiction problem surrounding prescription drugs, especially Oxycodone (also known as Percocet or OxyContin), is another worry for Canadians. According to The Globe and Mail newspaper, Oxycodone abuse is responsible for more than 1,000 deaths each year.
And while these statistics are alarming, they unfortunately haven’t helped decrease the amount of drug use in Canada. In a national survey done by the Canadian Centre for Substance Abuse the percentage of Canadians who admitted to trying an illicit substance at one time in their life was at 28% in 1994. In 2008, the same survey indicated a jump to 45% – or almost half of the surveyed population.
Between addiction treatment, medical care and other costs, the Health Officer’s Council of British Columbia estimates that drug use costs the Canadian government more than $40 billion each year.
Unfortunately, for all the apparent drug use in Canada, there aren’t enough treatment centres that can offer high success rates for recovery for those who become addicted.
The majority of treatment centres available are outpatient facilities, and many of the inpatient facilities being offered base recovery around strong religious values or treat clients suffering from mental illnesses, such as schizophrenia, in the same facility. This being said, there is a growing number of Canadians choosing The Cabin for their addiction recovery needs.
Why The Cabin is the right choice for Canadians
Unlike many of the treatment options available in Canada, The Cabin offers complete inpatient recovery while being respectful of the varied beliefs each addict may possess. Their Western-trained staff are highly qualified, and many of the counsellors are recovering addicts themselves – meaning they are better able to understand exactly what their clients are going through.
Located along the Ping River in beautiful Chiang Mai, many Canadians choose The Cabin because it’s the perfect place to get away from their everyday lives that trigger drug use – while getting world-class treatment in a stunning facility. Clients can relax in their private bungalows, a hammock by the river, or a lounge chair poolside while experiencing the famous Thai hospitality and day-trips to tourist attractions such as jungle trekking and elephant rides. Another factor Canadians appreciate is that The Cabin can offer this outstanding treatment at one-third the cost of similar facilities in the West due to low operational costs in Thailand.
