Kanchaniburi, Thailand, August 25, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Channah Thailand, Asia’s leading drug and alcohol rehabilitation centre has expanded it’s services to include assisted interventions, as well as they are now willing to take individuals that need residential treatment for depression, anxiety, anger management and eating disorders.
Simon Gunn, “We decided to add interventions to our list of services since there seems to be a serious need and there is nobody doing this service in Asia that we have been able to find.”
An intervention is needed when a loved one has a problem with drugs or alcohol and isn’t willing to seek treatment. The family then brings in a professional therapist experienced with drug and alcohol misuse and tries to get the individual to admit that they might have a problem. Usually this is set up and planned ahead of time with the family and is generally much more affective than the family doing it on their own.
Channah also recently accepted a few clients for treatment of depression, anxiety, and eating disorders.
Simon Guun “At first the concern was that it would affect the drug and alcohol programme, the clients however were in serious need of our help and we just couldn’t turn them away.”
Cognitive behavioral therapy is very affect with depression and other mental disorders, the clients integrated seamlessly with the other patients at the centre. As a result Channah has decided to expand it's services on a case by case basis to include eating disorders, depression, anxiety, and anger management. Still primarily a drug and alcohol centre they will be limiting the number of non-drug and alcohol clients they will accept.
The head therapists a Channah Thailand each have over 15 years of experience dealing with drug and alcohol clients as well as other physiological ailments in the UK and other countries. The centre is set on six acres of beautiful and lush gardens on the banks of the River Kwai in Thailand. A visit to Channah Thailand is more akin to a working holiday in a beautiful resort setting. The programme however is very intensive and clients are expected to work hard to make the changes in their lives that are needed.
