Some clients may undergo difficulty when traveling alone to rehab. They may endure physical symptoms along their journey like cravings, withdrawals, slips and falls, or panic attacks. They may also struggle with emotional burdens such as anxiety or fear and require additional support to ensure that the addiction itself doesn’t lead them away from safety and sobriety, yet again.
While The Beach Rehab is easily accessible via a major international airport and there will always be a staff member waiting directly at the arrival gate for all incoming clients, the possible stresses of international travel and long flight times create challenges that are beyond our control.
In some cases, it might be appropriate and possible for a parent or loved one to accompany a client to treatment, but in many other cases the client would be best assisted and transported to and from rehab by an experienced professional.
At The Beach, we have hand-picked a team of seasoned professionals who can safely and compassionately facilitate a client’s journey to rehab. These individuals are all former Australian Federal Police Officers (20+ years experience) trained in all aspects of domestic and international travel and transportation. Most importantly, they have an understanding and empathy for the client and are able to provide continual reassurance during the journey to rehab as a result of their supplementary clinical training relative to addictions and mental health issues.
The Beach’s Travel Support Team are committed to and passionate about creating and maintaining relationships with clients during travel and their recovery.
