Drug and Alcohol Rehab Abu Dhabi
Addiction Treatment Options in Abu Dhabi
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has become an increasingly popular country to visit, with its capital Abu Dhabi becoming ever-popular as a tourist destination and location for British expats to live and work. It has also inherited a drug problem, with many drug trafficking operations happening from other countries in the Middle East to Europe, using Abu Dhabi as a go-between because of UAE’s status as an open state. There are very few addiction rehab centres in the UAE.
If an individual is caught being in possession of an illegal substance or is found drinking alcohol in places where this is not accepted and Sharia Law hasn’t been waived (in places outside of tourist hotels and bars), this can lead to punishments such as fines, a prison sentence, deportation and in some extreme cases, the death penalty.
The UAE has a zero-tolerance approach to drug and alcohol abuse, making it extremely difficult for addicts to get addiction help at a rehab centre in the country if they have a problem. For many people living in Abu Dhabi, the best place to get rehab treatment for drug and alcohol abuse is by seeking therapy in a centre abroad.
At Step One Recovery we welcome inpatients from all over the world, including Abu Dhabi. We have an international clientele and can speak many languages so that you feel comfortable at all times. We are here to help you turn your life around and get back a healthy drug-free lifestyle before returning to Abu Dhabi.
If you are seeking rehab for drug or alcohol addiction in Abu Dhabi, we can help at one of our rehab centres. Our relaxing treatment facilities are truly special, so you will feel calm, cared for and safe which aids your recovery. We pride ourselves on healing the whole of you, from the inside out.
We use holistic methods such as yoga and meditation to repair your mind and body and to give you a renewed sense of being. Our slice of paradise is far away from the many distractions you might face in your home environment and is a place where you can rest, relax and recharge. We have a strong network of guidance counsellors, medical professionals, psychologists, fitness trainers and yoga experts who can help you bounce back from your addiction and start living life to the full once again.
What Should I Expect from Rehab?
Rest assured that our rehab centre is not clinical or like a hospital at all. We are a luxury home-from-home world-class retreat that focuses on well-being, health and relaxation to enable our patients to recover fully from their addictions.
You’ll have your own private bedroom with an en-suite for downtime, complete with the finishing touches such as quality linens and furnishings, bath robes and slippers and designer mini cosmetics. Escape from the hectic pace that fuels your drug and alcohol addiction to a place of tranquillity and calm, where you can get back to being yourself.
We’ll make sure you eat healthily, with food cooked to order by a private chef, and we also offer a private chauffeur service that can pick you up from the airport after your flight from Abu Dhabi. It can be a long trip, so it’s good to make sure that you arrive at our retreat feeling relaxed and comfortable.
Working together, we will change the way you think about alcohol and drugs so you do not feel dependent on them and take a different perspective. We also encourage you to take time for yourself and use our amazing facilities.
Relax in our detox wing or outdoor areas, go on relaxing walks, talk to other residents in our gardens or break a sweat in the gym â€“ how you choose to unwind is up to you. We can help you leave behind your drug and drink abuse behind you for good, so you can look forward to a positive future.
Do I Require Rehab?
Those who get in touch and need drug or alcohol rehab in Abu Dhabi are most concerned about the effects of withdrawal symptoms that they may experience during their stay with us. They also raise concerns about how they may cope with these symptoms when they return to Abu Dhabi.
These fears are completely natural and we will work together to put your mind at ease. We have helped many patients recover from drug and alcohol addiction, and we will determine when you are ready to leave our facility so that you will not relapse.
We can offer you medications and advice on how to detox safely and properly so that you can combat cravings effectively. You should not attempt home detox by yourself if your drug or alcohol addiction is severe.
What Types of Therapy Will I Have?
Your care is our number one priority. During your stay with us at our drug and alcohol rehab, we will talk through any underlying mental health issues, anxiety or stress you may be experiencing and will assess your needs. Everyone is different and has different requirements in terms of their care.
Your therapy with us will involve a number of talking therapy sessions, possible cognitive behavioural therapy, family therapy in which you speak to loved ones, and also mind training/meditation. We also offer yoga to help you feel empowered and strong as you fight your addiction.
What Happens When I Leave Rehab?
You are never alone when you have left our rehab centre â€“ our aftercare goes above and beyond to ensure that you always feel supported as you continue your journey. If you feel you are struggling with cravings, we can discuss readmission and more time at our centre or can recommend talking therapy over the phone to help you from relapsing.
