Drug Withdrawal at Seasons Bali

Addicts with a physical dependency often dread the thought of withdrawal. At Seasons Bali we see it as the first important step towards recovery from addiction. Clients are thoroughly assessed prior to arrival and then again on admission. This comprehensive process helps our Medical Team decide if a detox regime is required and exactly what it should involve.

Our doctor closely monitors any dose of medication throughout the client’s withdrawal period. Our medical team aims to keep clients comfortable so they can participate in as much of the scheduled program as possible. Moreover, the clinical staff deliver essential emotional support to individuals during detox and our 24 hour team are always on hand should clients need them.

Seasons Bali – Internationally Accredited Drug Addiction Treatment

Seasons Bali’s experience shows that drug addiction responds well to effective treatment. This means addressing the physical, psychological, emotional, social and spiritual characteristics of the disease.

We do this through implementing a balanced daily schedule that addresses the wellness of the whole person. This includes everything from group sessions and one on one counselling to yoga, exercise sessions and meditation.

Ideally clients stay for 90 days but we also offer shorter programs for 28 and 60 days. Our staff monitor and evaluate clients throughout their stay so they can acknowledge successes and identify the things that need to be worked on. This really helps our clients grow in confidence, awareness and self-esteem.

The members of our Clinical Team are all in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction which means they have a depth of understanding that goes beyond the formal qualifications they hold. They are role models for our clients and understand the process because they have been through it.

Our clients say:

One of the best things about the program is the staff. It’s such a great team and they’re so inspirational.

Seasons Bali addresses the causes and costs of drug addiction through a varied, holistic program.

Why Bali?

The Effects of Drug Addiction

Addiction to drugs effects the brain, thinking and behaviour of the person suffering. Those who use drugs addictively can do so in a variety of different patterns from those who use every day to those who binge with periods of abstinence in-between.

The path into drug addiction is rarely the same for everyone and there are many layers to this disease. Addicts who have suffered abuse, trauma or have other underlying medical conditions often need far more support to overcome their problem.

The consequences of drug addiction can look similar for all addicts even if the drugs and circumstances are quite different.


  • Changes in the brain chemistry – short term
  • Changes in the structure and function of the brain – long term
  • Neglecting personal hygiene
  • Disturbed sleep

  • Obsession
  • Lying to yourself/denial


  • Depression

Detoxing from Drug Addiction

The uncomfortable symptoms of withdrawal are the natural result of the body and brain returning to their normal way of functioning. For some people with a physical dependency a medically supervised period of withdrawal must take place. This usually means that for a short period of time they are prescribed a substitution medication with a tapering dose.

The Two Stages of Withdrawal – Acute and Post-Acute

For many addicts there are two stages of the withdrawal process. The first stage has instant, acute symptoms which are often physical and psychological and the second stage refers to a variety of more subtle psychological symptoms.

These are referred to as post-acute withdrawal symptoms or PAWS. They can last for weeks or months after the addict has stops using drugs. This is one of the reasons why residential treatment is the best way to treat drug addiction.

Post-acute withdrawal symptoms can include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Agitation
  • Cravings
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Lack of motivation
  • Inability to feel pleasure
  • Anger or emotional outbursts
