Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make healthy choices.

Anxiety and Depression

Addiction often goes hand-in-hand with mental health conditions, usually anxiety, depression or both.  Both anxiety and depression can be caused by addiction. However, sometimes anxiety comes first and alcohol or drugs (including prescription medication) help take the edge off the gnawing fear or control panic attacks.  

Sometimes depression comes first and it can seem impossible to get out of bed or to get through the day without the help of a drink, medication or some other substance.

This can lead to a cycle where more and more of the substance is needed, but the underlying feelings and their causes are only getting worse.  The effects of the substance become part of the problem. This creates a seemingly inescapable trap.

Treating the mental health condition while continuing to use the substance is often ineffective, because the substances impair cognitive functioning and interfere with restoring normal emotional responses.

Any attempt to reduce or stop using the substance leads to an intensification of the anxiety or depression.  This quickly becomes unbearable.

To break the cycle

It is necessary to treat the addiction and the mental health condition at the same time. At Jintara we provide comprehensive treatment for both your addiction and the other conditions that are associated with it. We provide a safe, yet stimulating environment, where your brain’s reward system can start to recover and return to pre-addiction levels. At the same time, with the support of your therapist you will explore the causes of the mental health issues, and learn new, more effective ways of dealing with these without needing substances.

At Jintara, the goal of treatment is not just abstinence – it is a life which is rewarding and fulfilling.

How MENTAL HEALTH is treated at Jintara Rehab

Treatment for mental health starts long before you arrive at Jintara Rehab. We conduct detailed phone/Zoom assessments with one of our International Therapy Team to understand your unique needs, so we can make sure that you get the proper treatment and care from the moment you arrive.

We assess your immediate condition and if you need medication for detox and to help with withdrawal management, safety and comfort. This assessment is done at our Partner hospitals and always under medical supervision and prescription. The actual detox process is done on site at Jintara and managed by our 24-hour Nursing team, who will check on you regularly.

Soon after your arrival, we will take you to one of our Partner Hospitals for a detailed medical checkup. This includes full blood-work, liver function test, kidney function test and EKG at a minimum. Jintara is the only Thai rehab to include these detailed tests as part of the standard fees, and gives both you and us peace of mind that you are in good physical shape, and if not, we can address it during your stay with us.

Counseling and therapy for groups and individuals help you better understand your problem with alcohol and support recovery from the psychological aspects of alcohol use. At Jintara you will receive approximately 70-hours of clinician face time per month. We are unique at Jintara in that we treat the causes of addiction and not just the symptoms. We call this dual diagnosis and you can read more about that here.

This process usually involves alcohol treatment specialists. It may include goal setting, behavior change techniques, use of self-help manuals, counseling and follow-up care.

Aftercare is optional (but highly recommended) and you can continue working with your Focal Counselor after you leave Jintara.
