Global Drug Treatment Programs

Global Drug Treatment Programs

If you’ve noticed, finding treatment off shore is now a common practice and for many reasons. Many people now travel to get hip replacements, or knee replacements, or for cosmetic surgery or any number of other medical procedures or treatments. Why limit your options? Especially when the best place for you may be somewhere completely outside of where you are?

With drug addiction treatment programs, it really makes sense. First, it’s best to get the addict away from his, or her, current circumstances and life. While he is still there he is only likely to continue repeating what he’s doing. Even if he quits, he is surrounded by temptation and potential “triggers” and is more than likely going to relapse. He needs a breather. He needs to get to somewhere else where he can detox, get proper treatment and reevaluate his life without the pressure of his “normal” surroundings. Obviously, he wasn’t successful there to begin with, but why? What led to the drug addiction to begin with? He needs a place where he can find the answer to this question. He needs a place where he can detox under good medical supervision. He needs a place where he can restore his health, both mentally and physically, and then begin to address himself internally – his goals, his purpose, what he wants his life to be about. He needs to find himself in order to begin a renewed life of meaning.

Thailand, and especially Lanna, was custom made for this purpose. This is not merely a tropical paradise, it is also an amazingly spiritual place. Life moves slower here. Small things take on a deeper meaning here and introspection has rewards. Respect for life has a new and powerful significance. Gratitude has value. People discover their lives have consequence here. You feel your connection to the universe unlike anywhere else and when you leave here you take that with you.

This is a life altering place. As a drug addiction treatment program should be. Before you decide where to find treatment, find out more about Lanna. Call us today.
