Every abused substance from Alcohol to Heroin and everything between has a unique way it impacts the human brain. Because of that there is no one size fits all approach to ridding the habit. The therapy for each person is tailored to the person and uses the methods that work best for each substance.
Bangkok Counseling does not use the 12 step program that is centered on abstention. Our approach is focused on ridding the sense of deprivation and replacing it with something that is equally gratifying that effectively silences the urge to return to the undesired abusive behavior.
This approach works well to augment the 12 step program or as a standalone. The level of therapy is one tier below staying at a rehabilitation facility and we are often used as a follow-up for people leaving a rehabilitation facility. That makes it much more cost effective as you can continue with your normal life as you attend weekly therapy sessions.
This therapy primarily uses clinical hypnotherapy to bring about change on a subconscious level making it much easier as the change in behavior becomes more natural and self-selective and not an undesired task.
This therapy can be done remotely using Skype or Zoom so you do not need to travel and it can be done in the comfort of your own home.
If you are not sure if this is the right approach for you, please contact us for a free non-committal phone consultation. We will let you know if we feel this is right for you or not.
