Our team understands that this journey requires expert navigation, particularly when it comes to prescription medications and their specific dosages. As part of the program, all clients have access to a dedicated and highly qualified addiction psychiatrist who is well versed in managing addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders.
The Heart of Your Treatment: Your Consultation
This session, nestled at the heart of your treatment program, ensures that your medical needs are heard, understood, and adequately addressed to ensure you have the best possible experience during your program, and can take as much information home with you ensuring a higher level of success.
Please Note: As addiction is a complex labyrinth that sometimes requires adjustment and correction for a successful result, additional sessions may be required to fully navigate its twists and turns. If required, these extra sessions, beyond the initial consultation, will incur an additional charge of $300 USD.
It's crucial that you or your loved one understand these costs upfront, to be best prepared for the journey ahead.
Our Admissions team is committed to transparency and is always available to discuss any potential extra charges, prior to your arrival & in most cases we are able to offer suitable alternatives where needed, so please make sure you raise any questions you may have prior to arrival. This will ensure a seamless journey towards recovery, without the burden of any unexpected financial stress.
Taking the Helm: Your Medication Journey
Anyone can stop drinking or using drugs while in rehab - At Miracles Asia, we strive to ensure that all clients are not only able to do this, but remain in a life-long recovery after completing the program.
The Initial Hurdle: Detox and Withdrawal
A few example symptoms of withdrawal include:
Different substances also require different detox medications, which is where our Psychiatrist will help you, and depending on your unique situation may be prescribed some of the below medications:
Benzodiazepines are highly addictive when used as sedatives and therefore, are closely monitored and seldom prescribed to patients in early recovery after detoxification. At Miracles Asia, we recommend that individuals struggling with alcohol addiction or benzodiazepine abuse should opt for a medically supervised detoxification program to avoid life-threatening complications during their early withdrawal stages.
While Suboxone is not readily available in Thailand, an option for utilizing Suboxone for detox whilst at Miracles Asia can potentially be arranged with one of our doctors, if prescribed. A combination of a Tramadol + Clonidine can also be utilized for opioid detox; both of these medications are readily available in Thailand.
Addressing Co-Occurring Disorders: The Dual Approach
The success of the program at Miracles Asia is rooted in our ability to not only treat the addiction of each client, but to identify and address co-occurring mental health conditions before, during and after their stay with us in Thailand.
Substance use disorders often co-occur with other mental health conditions like anxiety or depression. In our experience, treating one without the other is a half-measure and doesn’t help the client in the long term. Prescription medications like antidepressants, anti-anxiety drugs, and mood stabilizers are commonly used for these co-occurring conditions, which forms an integral part of your recovery journey for long after leaving rehab.
