When you’re stuck in the cycle of opioid use, you believe that the next pill or dose is required to get you to baseline. You might be right during your substance abuse. Because in our use, we begin to identify so strongly with the drug and its necessity.
Opioid withdrawal symptoms have trained you and every other drug user to keep taking the drug. It's normal during drug addiction. Compared to heroin or meth, the decline of your cognitive function is typically slower but often just as devastating over time. It can be hard to recognize when you’re in the cycle, but if you’re reading this you have some idea of what your opioid use is doing to your life.
Your decision making has taken a downward trajectory, no matter how slow or subtle it may appear to the outside world. You know what it’s doing. Stopping on your own is not an option for those of us in this cycle. You need a team, ideally a team of professionals who have gotten hundreds of clients free from their drug use.
Even if you get sober for a few days or a few weeks on your own, will you be able to stay sober?
There are important questions to ask yourself when choosing a rehab
What are your short and long-term goals?
Do you want to trudge and struggle through sobriety?
Do you want the keys to a smoother, happier road in recovery
When you start a drug rehab
program at Miracles Asia, you will have the full attention from an entire team of people with a personalized, and structured plan to help you get free of opioids and live a life free from addiction.
They will help you manage withdrawal symptoms and any chronic pain associated with the opioid use. They will also engrain in you how to live in peace during your recovery, without severe pain.
In our active drug use, we often think that getting sober is a punishment. That we are sacrificing something we love. Or that we need it for pain relief. What happens is a replacement of the drug with better experiences and fulfillment.
Have you ever been jealous of the “normal” people who go about their daily lives in a seemingly peaceful existence?
You might watch these folks going for walks, attending events, exercising, or eating out at restaurants with ease. For us in active addiction, doing normal things seems like an uphill task. We have to struggle and fight to do things that should be natural and comfortable. Our drug abuse has taken us to a place where that lifestyle is impossible until we stop the substance abuse, and sure enough those normal daily activities come back.
After the withdrawal symptoms subside, the clinical staff
at Miracles Asia will guide you back into normal life and show you how to live with peace of mind. We will help you break free and stay free of substance use disorder.
The trickiest part is staying abstinent from drugs. If we can do that, our lives start to clear up and things become okay again. Despite popular cultural themes of toughness and strength, freedom from opioid addiction requires help. Drug addiction is a clever scam that convinces us we need it. You don’t. If drug addiction was as harmless as drinking too much water, or exercising too much, changing your habit would be easy.
The problem is, opioid addiction is destructive to you and the people around you. It’s also deadly. Time isn’t a luxury when it comes to stopping drugs.
You deserve to move your life in a good direction and the people around you deserve it as well. It is easy to beat yourself up when you are in the cycle of drug abuse and you have probably mentally lashed yourself for years or decades over it.
Opioid abuse also narrows our thinking and situations become black and white, when in reality they are colorful. You’re a good person with a lot to offer. Beating yourself up isn’t going to help. What you learn at Miracles Asia is self-love, patience, and healing through and addiction treatment program and behavioral therapy. This is the environment that will allow you to initially get sober.
Separating yourself from the place where you are using opioids is a good first step. It is easier to leave that environment, knowing you are going to sunny Phuket Thailand, with warm weather, beaches and mountains. Managing the symptoms of withdrawal, like chronic pain, is necessary to staying free of opioid use. We will help you ease through the opioid withdrawal symptoms and guide you into a treatment plan.
By making the decision to come get help, you’re acknowledging that maybe, just maybe, you also deserve a good life. Why should everyone else have a good life, and not you? Are you that terrible of a person? We doubt it.
Your recovery from opioids will start in a beautiful, tranquil environment where you will receive great hospitality and addiction treatment from the best team of professionals.
We have so many former opioid users who were trapped in the misery of drug addiction. They are now living wonderful lives filled with travel, business success, and peace of mind. They manage any severe pain or mental disorders with patience. And the negative consequences of their substance abuse have started to recede. They no longer have a piano hanging over their head.
At Miracles Asia, you will connect with other opioid users and drug users from across the globe. All of them are tired of the daily drug abuse. And all of them are looking forward to a life free of substances.
You will also meet former Miracles Asia
clients during group meetings who took the same path you are considering, who will help you and attest to their newfound joys in life free of addiction. They will also help you, if you're comfortable talking to them, move through the opioid withdrawal symptoms. Right now, those symptoms can seem dreadful. They pass more quickly and less painfully than you now realize.
The Miracles Asia staff will hold your hand through the detox and make sure that you are comfortable as the drugs leave your body. As you experience withdrawal symptoms, the staff will make sure you are treated medically if necessary. You will be guided to your new setting as you grow stronger, but you will not be rushed around with an iron fist.
We believe in love and patience as the ideal setting for addiction treatment. This is often a welcome change for clients who have created tornadoes in their daily lives. Peace and order is often a welcome relief. Over the first 30 days, you will learn to live life in a relaxed setting. Getting out for hikes in the rainforest, going for massages, easting wonderfully cooked food at every meal, beach visits, and exercise all become parts of your new life.
Most importantly, you will learn how to live free of drug abuse by being taught the tools to stop and stay stopped. This includes psycho education, meditation, mindfulness, therapy, and group meetings where you will be among peers who share their stories in a confidential setting.
Business owners, CEO’s, doctors, bankers, artists, and celebrities all join together at our treatment center for the same reason - to be free, finally, from the purgatory of substance abuse.
