It may seem as if it’s impossible to recover from alcohol addiction, but rehab in Bali is the perfect place to undergo alcohol detox, and begin a journey to a healthier lifestyle.
It’s essential that a detox from alcohol is undertaken in a supervised environment, and with the best medical care available. Detoxing or withdrawing from alcohol without proper support may lead to disastrous consequences.
The cost of rehab in Bali comes at a fraction of the price of centres in the West and the vast majority of addicts come from countries such as Australia, New Zealand, and Asia. Bali rehab centres can organise everything you need to properly detox from alcohol, and start your journey to recovery.
Alcohol detox: the first step in treating alcohol addiction
Some believe that going ‘cold turkey’ is the best way to beat an addiction, though it can be dangerous if an individual isn’t monitored closely by medical professionals whilst they detox.
Once a heavy drinker decides to cut back or stops drinking alcohol and the alcohol starts to leave their system, they will begin to experience withdrawal symptoms which can be extremely uncomfortable. This may be accompanied by physiological symptoms, such as shaking, sickness, nausea, alterations in blood pressure, and a change in mood.
Because these symptoms can worsen, and even become life threatening if not dealt with appropriately, it’s important that medical professionals are on stand-by 24/7.
Within 48 hours, these uncomfortable symptoms usually start to decline as the body returns to its normal function, though individuals with more severe addictions may experience symptoms for several more days.
What to expect
You can expect round-the-clock monitoring and assistance from a skilled medical team, as well as a range of other services to help you undergo alcohol detox safely and effectively. These include resources to diagnose problems relating to the addiction, but also an insight into what, or if any, mental health issues may be causing the addiction in the first place.
Detox is the first step toward an addiction-free life. Once completed, clients will then move on to the primary alcohol addiction treatment, which will take up the bulk of their stay in rehab. Depending on the centre, clients will have access to therapies such as CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), mindfulness-based techniques, group counselling, and 12-step therapy.
The goal of a rehab programme is to identify the underlying cause behind the alcohol addiction and, eventually, to overcome the underlying behaviour that caused the addiction in the first place.
Bali: the best place to recover from alcohol addiction
There really is no better place to recover from alcohol addiction than in Bali. Undergoing detox will be much safer if it’s done in a calm, relaxing environment with medical supervision. High-quality rehab centres offer a personalised rehab experience and you’ll often have access to a private ensuite room with balcony, LCD television, complimentary WiFi, a swimming pool, a fitness centre, and a daily maid service.
Taking a local excursion can provide a positive distraction whilst clients go through addiction recovery, and also install healthy patterns of behaviour that will serve to support the long-term recovery process. Bali has some exceptional tourist destinations and popular attractions to visit. Majestic temples, monkey sanctuaries, beaches and waterparks, or waterfalls and volcanic mountains – help to ensure relaxation outside of the intense alcohol addiction therapy.
The first steps are always the hardest, but once you take them, you’ll be on the path to recovery from alcohol addiction. If you want to live a healthier life, contact Bali Rehab Guide today and get a free consultation.
