The Work

Our addiction rehabilitation programs encapsulate a range of multifaceted therapeutic approaches to addiction issues. Our programs are open to anyone struggling with gambling, alcohol and other substance issues.

Oceans program is 28 days in length, fully inclusive. Shorter programs are available on a case by case basis. The length of an individual treatment program will be determined in the initial assessment, then reviewed and monitored by everybody involved in the recovery plan. Transitional sober living accomadation is also available post treatment.

To create a treatment plan that best fits unique needs and experiences Oceans Thailand has a holistic approach to addiction treatment.

The program will empower individuals and give them the self-efficacy required to contribute positively to society, the people they love and most importantly to their own lives. The program will support residents in breaking the cycle of addiction and provide them with the necessary tools and understanding to help manage daily living without relying on substances.

Oceans Thailand places a strong emphasis on the actual process involved in treatment therapies. We recognise and understand the broader implications when an individual resident enters our treatment program. Rebuilding family relationships and changing lives for the better are essential objectives.

Intensive Treatment Program

Residents will participate in daily group therapies, lectures, physical therapies, meditation, activities, excursions, personal time, coursework and brief one to one check-in with a counsellor. Programs are delivered with modest flexibility, allowing for reasonable adjustment depending on the mood of the group, essential issues raised during sessions, weather and time management. During the several weeks of treatment, residents will participate in an extended one to one therapy session’s that will form the blueprint for their drug or alcohol rehabilitation plan. They will also receive 24-hour support from our staff.

The objective of this addiction rehabilitation program is to support residents through the challenge of transitioning from addiction to sober living and will include dealing with Post Acute Withdrawal Syndrome, transforming destructive patterns of behaviour and developing strong mechanisms that support a healthy and sustainable recovery.

What To Expect On The Journey

Entering an addiction rehabilitation program can be a daunting experience. The staff at Oceans Thailand understands this, and we are here to help in any way we can. We merely ask that you keep an open mind, be willing to participate in all treatments, activities and provide us with a reasonable level of honesty so that we can support you in your recovery journey in the best possible way.

When you arrive, you will meet with one of our counsellors to determine what kind of therapy and addiction treatment services will be best for your long-term recovery. We encourage close family participation throughout the entire process to provide additional support and comfort.

Residents will also be informed of nutritional education and guidance to help them develop greater awareness of the types of influences that different types of food groups may have on the recovery process as well as the importance that food and nutrition play in maintaining stable mental health.

Although the most leading-edge treatment modalities are essential, all the research on the effectiveness of addiction treatment illustrates that it is the actual clinician delivering the therapy that can make the real difference in successful outcomes. For this reason, Oceans Thailand places a strong emphasis on developing and building a healthy therapeutic relationship in a safe and beautiful confidential environment.

To defeat the pattern of self-destructive and maladaptive behaviours, we subscribe to these critical basic concepts for nurturing ongoing recovery:

  • Maintaining a healthy personal commitment, connection, and motivation to recovery

  • Ongoing mindfulness relapse prevention strategies

  • Emotional Regulation

  • Nurturing of healthy relationships

  • Life balance

Your beliefs become your thoughts. Your thoughts become your words. Your words become your actions. Your actions become your habits. Your habits become your values. Your values become your destiny.
