Activities And Excursions
At The Beach Rehab Thailand, we promote balanced recovery and believe that fun in recovery is not only possible, but quite important. During active addiction many years are spent using and isolating. This means becoming disconnected from a normal and enjoyable way of living.
Our focus is simply to show our clients how to have fun whilst being sober. It is a great opportunity to relax a bit after a thorough weeks work, and really see for yourself that fun in recovery is possible.
Mid-week and weekend excursions and activities include but are not limited to:
Breathtaking and one of Asia’s natural wonders, includes visit to local temple.
Khao Kalok Beach
Located on our doorstep, this stunning beach is within a 5-minute walk of our facility. Whether it be beach walks, yoga, swimming, meditation, or even creative writing, this is ideal backdrop.
WFFT Wild Adventure
WFFT is a nationwide effort involved in rescuing domesticized/captive wild animals. They provide visitors with a chance to learn about the rescued creatures living at the Wildlife Rescue Center and Elephant Refuge. Clients get to experience them closely, but without any exploitation.
Siam Pearl Cruises
Enjoy a relaxing day aboard the lovely Siam Pearl Cruise boat. This excursion allows you to have the luxury of spending the day on the water while boat stops at some fantastic swimming locations.
You’ll also have the chance to also do some fishing, make a stop off at the famous Monkey Island, and if you’re lucky enough you may even see some beautiful pink dolphins whilst cruising through the gorgeous Dolphin Bay.
This is a fantastic day out for The Beach Rehab clients and one our clients really cherish.
Nutraceutical Therapy to Aid Recovery
Cutting-edge neuroscience research underpins The Beach’s innovative program to harness the power of Nutraceuticals, supplements that are used for both medicines and nutrition, to heal your brain at a cellular level.
We are the only rehab outside of the USA offering the Nutraceuticals to improve your chance of successful recovery. Drug and alcohol abuse cause a range of negative consequences for the brain. The resulting chemical imbalances can exacerbate drug carvings, impair cognitive function, and cause anxiety and depression.
By promoting biochemical recovery within the brain, Nutraceuticals, help restore balance and reduce or reverse the often debilitating side effects of chronic substance abuse. As your brain heals, you will be better able to deal with the challenges of early recovery and less likely to give into cravings and relapse.
The Beach has carefully chosen a small selection of the most effective Nutraceuticals for use in addiction treatment. The Dopamine Diet, working together with this selection of Nutraceuticals, offer you an opportunity for deep brain healing that enhances your chances of successful recovery.
“Neuroscientists and psychologists add that the ocean and wild waterways are a wellspring of happiness and relaxation.…and help manage trauma, anxiety, sleep, autism, addiction, fitness, attention/focus, stress, grief, PTSD, build personal resilience, and much more.”-Dr Wallace J Nichol, The Blue Mind
Studies show that humans react positively to being in nature, particularly being by water. An exercise program which incorporates the beach, sea and forests, like the program at The Beach, allows the brain to slow down and absorb the psychological benefits of being in nature while enjoying the physical benefits of being active.
During outdoor exercise, the brain releases endorphins which reduce pain and enhance a sense of wellbeing. Outdoor exercise therapy is proven to decrease anxiety and blood pressure and lift mood.
Exercise options at The Beach include:
- Beach walks
- Beachside yoga
- Shoreline cycling
- Swimming in the sea or pool
- Stand-up paddle boarding (SUP)
- Hiking in pristine national parks
- Jungle runs
- Open air muay Thai (Thai boxing)
- Personal training in the gym
During active addiction many people neglect their health and don’t exercise regularly. The Beach Outdoor Therapy program encourages clients to the most of our beautiful location by being active every day.
Even gentle exercise will start to build up fitness if you have been sedentary before coming to treatment. Our experts will provide you with personal fitness plan and work with you, at your own pace, to improve your fitness and reach the goals you have set.
Exercise during recovery helps build strength, improving overall fitness and imparts a sense of achievement as you see yourself getting fitter with each passing week. It also improves cognitive functions and memory in direct and indirect ways.
Directly, exercise helps reduce insulin resistance, reduce inflammation and stimulate the release of growth chemicals in the brain that affect the health of brain’s cells and blood vessels. It even boosts the abundance and survival of new brain cells.
In an indirect way, exercise lifts mood, improves sleep and reduces anxiety and stress. Often, problems in these areas cause cognitive impairment.
In combination with our nutritious Dopamine Diet and Nutraceutical supplements, The Beach’s Outdoor Therapy program will give you the opportunity to leave treatment confident about a future in recovery and feeling physically and psychologically fitter and healthier than you have in years.
