Bukit Damansara is an affluent suburb in western Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia the Klang Valley Although you’re still in the city, you’ll also experience nature and tranquillity.
People often ask what is the success rate of our drug rehab and treatment. We define success rate through our program completion rate which is above 95%.
Our addiction rehabilitation and treatment success comes from the fact that we limit ourselves to a capacity of 15 residents. Keeping our programs small and private prevents an institutionalized mindset from taking hold and offers a more welcoming and relaxed atmosphere.
Moreover, we also utilize the skills of some of our former clients that have completed our addiction treatment program and attained a qualification in the form of Recovery Support Coach. This gives us an added advantage as they are able to emotionally connect with clients and act as peers within the community that motivates for a positive transformation of the individual.
We make it our main priority to provide individual assistance and attention to clients in a welcoming and comfortable environment in which they are not overwhelmed by a large crowd of people. We do this because when clients admit to treatment, some suffer from having trust issues while others suffer from social anxiety and have had long periods of isolation from family and friends. This allows clients to engage in therapy more easily and get to know us and other clients better.
At Serene Retreat, we believe that a group session is much more of an interactive discussion than a preaching session as often clients tend to have a defense mechanism when they feel they are being preached instead of having the chance to interact. This enables them to better express themselves and have their concerns and opinions heard.
While our treatment program is primarily focused on scientific evidence, we are open and able to integrate into whichever alternative therapy appeals to each client.
Our goal is to assist each of our residents with the right combination of psychological, medical, pharmaceutical, nutritional, alternative and spiritual practices that will bring each of them closer to their recovery. We pride ourselves in our ability to work with each client closely and offer them the care, support, and treatment they need with compassion and dignity.
At Serene Retreat our Psychotherapeutic program is designed to treat addictive behaviour disorder. It’s also used to treat the primary psychological and emotional issues that could be contributing to the addiction.
More than 65% of individuals with substance abuse disorder are also self-medicating for depression, anxiety, traumatic stress, grief, or some other psychological or psychiatric ailment. Our inpatient addiction treatment program at Serene Retreat provides holistic treatment for both the addictive behaviour and concurrent disorders.
Evidence-based psychotherapy is a very crucial part of our addiction treatment program. However, it’s not the only activity that we offer at Serene Retreat.
We set up a wide range of different therapies and activities that assist in reinforcing the drug rehab treatments and help renew the body, the mind, and the soul. Although these activities can’t treat drug addiction, they can fuel you with a healthy strength that can help you cope with stress, anxiety and life’s difficulties.
Our Drug and Alcohol treatment process is designed to help you or your loved break free from addiction by going through the following:
The first step in addiction recovery is detox. This is when the elimination of toxins happens as well as stabilizing the client at a hospital before being admitted into our facilities. The hospital would inform us as to when the client is ready for their second phase. Daily check-ups on the client would be conducted for as long as he/she is in hospital.
Rehabilitation is key due to the person’s mindset changing during the transition from being sober-minded to the full-blown addict. This is done through psycho-education, individual counseling, psychiatric assistance, and psychologists sessions.
Family sessions also form a part of the client’s rehabilitation. This helps in the process of unlearning the addictive behavior and relearning sobriety-based qualities. Here we use a lot of CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy).
Relapse is not part of recovery. Relapse is a choice. There is no reason to go back to usage after being in a program and being taught coping skills, through relapse prevention. This is why coping skills are taught to prevent a relapse from happening. It also teaches the client how to cope/deal with difficult situations, such as conflict resolutions.
At this phase, the client gets to go on home leave. This serves a two-fold purpose. the first is that empowers reintegration, i.e. reconnecting with the family. The second purpose is to identify and sort out any problems/stumbling blocks, that is experienced before his/her release date. Upon returning from a home-leave, problems identified will be worked on to ensure that that it is resolved. This is crucial for when the client goes home after he/she has completed their program.
After care is the last phase and one of the most important phases of the treatment program. It helps in the maintenance of what has been achieved during the in-patient treatment. It is also an opportunity to speak and deal with any stumbling blocks that might occur while one might have started work, studies or any home problems.
Serene Retreat’s aftercare program offers a combination of therapy sessions over the phone from the comfort and convenience of your own home.
