The Risks and Challenges of Treatment Abroad
While exact numbers are difficult to quantify, an estimated 14 million people travel to another country each year for some form of medical treatment, and the industry is growing fast. Treatment for addiction abroad is one particular area that has proved particularly popular due to the enhanced privacy and discretion, as well as newer, experimental treatment options in luxury resorts at more affordable rates. However, it is also not something that will appeal to everyone.
Planning for addiction treatment.
The United States makes up 5 percent of the world’s population and consumes approximately 80 percent of the world’s prescription opioid drugs! So it’s no wonder that the demand for recovery facilities is experiencing an all-time high. But, not all treatment centers are created equal. Although it’s possible to find a rehab facility that specializes in just one form of addiction, many are set up to handle a range of dependency issues in a strict single-sex environment.
The most important thing you need to realize is that comprehensive therapeutic rehab is no holiday and requires a lot of serious work. We also believe that it should be effective, long-lasting, and tailored to your individual needs, therefore the perfect facility for one individual may not be a good option for someone else. And that’s where our expertise, connections, and credentials matter!
Choosing the right resort facility.
Resort facilities are uniquely positioned to meet the needs of individuals who are beginning on their recovery journey. They offer a welcoming, stress-free atmosphere so that the focus remains on your health and healing rather restriction and punishment. Not only that, but by leaving the comforts and habits of home, you’ll also be escaping the temptations that triggered your addiction in the first place, including less visitors, fewer disruptions, increased staff, more time, and better outcomes. That’s why traveling to rehab and recovery makes so much sense. Plus, it’s a wonderful way to mark the start of your journey into sobriety and help establish new behavior patterns in a positive, healing environment.
But in order to have the greatest chance of recovery, you must begin your journey in the right rehab center customized to your needs and challenges. And our consultants know exactly which questions to ask, what options are available, and what your ideal recovery environment should look like. For some this could include an addiction expert providing you exclusive one-on-one treatment in the comfort of your own home or on a private yacht in the Caribbean, for others it could be a niche group facility in the mountains or in the Australian outback, either way, our concierge team are ready to provide you with a superior experience.
