When looking for a drug and alcohol treatment centre in Chennai, there is not much available. There are a few government run facilities and outreach programs. For a successful businessperson, there is nothing we are able to find that will fit their needs. This is why many people, after researching Chennai alcohol rehabilitation options, turn to an affordable international destination like DARA Drug and Alcohol Rehab.
Chennai, formerly known as Madras or Madarasapatinam, is the capital city of Tamil Nadu, located on the Bay of Bengal. Chennai is the fifth largest city in India. As of 2009, Chennai had a population of about 4.3 million people. Hospitals in Chennai report 90% of people admitted to hospital for accidents due to alcohol. There’s a pattern to the victims who seek medical help at the casualty ward of government hospitals in the city. According to the doctors, about 90 percent of the accident/assaults classified as ‘medico-legal cases’ are due to alcohol abuse. At Stanley Hospital, every day five patients are admitted with complaints of “overdose of alcohol.”
“An improvement in their income causes people take to drinking,” said Mohan Rao, a physician attached to the Casualty ward there. “It is not just the youth, even middle-age men are admitted,” he said.
Chennai De-addiction Versus an International Medical Destination: Distance Helps Recovery
It is easy for Indian citizens living in Chennai to come to Thailand for addiction treatment. And in many cases, begin distant from the home environment helps you focus completely on your recovery program, and away from triggers and stressors that led to drinking and using drugs. Chennai de-addiction services don’t provide the intensive, level of care that is often necessary, and traveling to an international medical tourism destination like DARA provides discrete, private and highly effective care.
There is a Royal Thai Consulate stationed in India where your travel visa can be approved. We will also provide a letter to the consulate inviting you to come to DARA Drug and Alcohol.
With regular flights from Chennai via Colombo, it is only 8 hours in transit to Bangkok. DARA is located in Trat Province on the eastern part of Thailand, so you’ll need to have a connecting flight from Bangkok to Trat. The flight from Bangkok to Trat is less than an hour with two direct flights daily provided by Bangkok Airways.
Upon arrival at the Trat Airport, you will be escorted to Bangkok Hospital Trat by an English speaking member of their staff. All clients, before entering rehab at DARA, will be admitted to Bangkok Hospital Trat for 24 hours for a full medical assessment and observation which is included in the price of your DARA treatment package. If it is you need more than a 24-hour stay at the hospital for in-patient detoxing, you will, however, be responsible for the additional fees, paid directly to the hospital.
