Why Singaporeans Choose The Wave Rehab

Each year more Singaporeans are seeking treatment overseas for drug and alcohol dependence. Relocating to a new environment is often the most effective choice for a successful recovery and travelling abroad for treatment introduces a number of treatment centres in South East Asia for you to choose from. It is imperative you find the most appropriate programme to fit your needs. For many, The Wave Clinic is the right choice – a leading destination rehab for individuals and families looking for help. With respected and credentialed staff, a unique set of treatment tools that deliver clear and lasting results and a beautiful and convenient location within easy reach, The Wave Clinic is Singapore’s choice for effective drug and alcohol treatment.

The Benefits of Anonymity in Rehab

Anonymity is one of the prime reasons more Singaporeans are choosing to find help with their addictions outside of Singapore. While Singapore does have some limited treatment options, Singapore law requires their clinics and rehabs to inform the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) who is being treated for substance abuse and for what drug. With fears of being charged, acquiring a criminal record and the severe penalties that could incur, the appeal of seeking effective drug addiction treatment anonymously abroad becomes a key factor. The lack of anonymity is not just a hurdle to seeking treatment but a hindrance to effectively dealing with the core causes of drug and alcohol addiction. The anonymity that The Wave Clinic offers is one of many reasons more professionals in the field recommend The Wave

The Social Stigma Surrounding Addiction in Singapore

SINGAPORE, SINGAPORE - CIRCA SEPTEMBER, 2017:  Streets of Little India in Singapore, Singapore.

Shame is a powerful stigma that fuels addiction and can effectively keep you from seeking help. The amount of social stigma surrounding addiction is significant in Singapore. If you have been struggling with drug abuse or know someone close to you caught in grips of drug addiction, you already know all too well the embarrassment and shame surrounding the topic. The good news is, there is nothing to be ashamed about. Addiction is not a moral failure and effective treatment is available to prevent the cycle of relapse and remission. As with the diagnosis for other diseases such as diabetes, there is no need to feel ashamed or be embarrassed about your struggle with addiction. The Wave embodies a non-judgmental environment where everyone is accepted as they are and recovery, free from shame, begins.

Why Families Should Consider The Wave

From its inception, The Wave Clinic was founded by staff who have worked successfully in leading treatment centres globally. Addiction and mental health are complex issues, but this does not mean a family has to feel helpless. As teenagers and young adults work towards integrating into the real world, they’re met with real struggles of fear, anger, isolation and anxiety. It’s all too common that along the way they may have lost interest in hobbies, their grades may have dropped, they may have dropped out of school completely or even had trouble with the law. Parents too may have given up hope for a positive outcome, or of overcoming their addictions. This does not have to be the case.
