Confidential and Effective Alcohol Addiction Treatment for Middle East Residents
Alcohol, despite being a frowned upon substance in the Arab world, is still relatively easy to find in many Middle Eastern and Gulf states. Alcohol addiction, however, can have extremely dire consequences for both the individual addict and their family. Ethyl alcohol, or ethanol, is an intoxicant found in beer, wine or liquor. It is a central nervous system depressant rapidly absorbed from the stomach into the bloodstream. Alcohol problems vary in severity anywhere from occasional binge drinking to life-threatening physical addiction. Alcohol addiction is a chronic disorder that causes people to drink uncontrollably despite the negative effect on their lives. It can be detrimental to people’s relationships, finances, work and both physical and mental health. Prolonged abuse can cause severe damage to the brain and liver.
Alcohol addiction treatment at The Cabin Chiang Mai consists of 2 main elements:
Discontinuing the use of alcohol or alcohol detoxification usually causes withdrawal symptoms, the severity of which will depend on the client’s level of alcohol addiction. They may range from anxiety and poor sleep to uncontrollable shaking and spasms.
We have a professional medical team, consisting of a doctor and nurses, who are capable of supervising mild to medium level withdrawal symptoms. For more severe cases of detoxification, which require hospitlisation, we have a working partnership with Chiang Mai’s top private hospital, Chiang Mai Ram, where will arrange for the client to be hospitalised until he recovers to a level where our medical team can take over the supervision of his detoxification.
Clients will also receive supervised and responsible prescribing for mental health or physical health issues, if needed.
Addressing the psychological and behavioural symptoms of alcohol addiction is the key to long-term recovery and this is accomplished through our culturally-sensitive Recovery Zones programme which uses the most effective psychotherapy treatment methods available today. Our experienced counsellors will get to the root causes of the client’s alcohol addiction, identify his triggers and teach him coping techniques for a life-long relapse prevention plan.
Each client will follow a personalised programme consisting of a series of individual and group counselling sessions, mindfulness exercises and physical exercise therapy to achieve holistic recovery of both the body and mind.
