Why The Cabin Hong Kong is an Effective and Affordable Meth Rehab for Hong Kong Residents
Meth rehab centres are more important now than ever before in Hong Kong as methamphetamine (aka bingdu, ice, speed, crank) use is in the middle of a drastic resurgence, and authorities expect it to get even worse over the coming years.
The Resurgence of Meth in Hong Kong
Methamphetamine Hydrochloride is the most common form in which the drug is consumed in Hong Kong; in the West it is commonly known as crystal meth or ice, but in China it is known as bingdu, which literally translated means ‘ice drug’.
While heroin used to be the drug of choice for many Hong Kong residents, there have been recent reports released that suggest that crystal meth usage is now far overtaking that of heroin in the city. These reports show that meth use now makes up approximately 23% of all addictions, which is a concerning increase from just 9% in 2008. This increase is the result of a number of different factors including price, availability and the ease in which the ingredients for manufacture can be found.
Effects of Meth Use
Meth is a very addictive substance, and some users can develop an addiction to the drug after just one or two uses. Prolonged use of the drug can cause many physical and psychological effects, as follows:
Physical Effects of Meth
- Hair loss
- Dilated pupils
- Tooth decay
- Trembling/ shaking
- Nausea/ vomiting
- Extreme weight loss
- Extreme dry skin
- Open sores
Behavioural/psychological effects of meth:
- Risky behaviour such as unsafe sex, committing crimes
- Exhaustion from binge-crash pattern of use
- Disorganized thoughts
- Social isolation
- Aggression and violent behaviour
- Loss of appetite to the point of not eating
Do You or a Loved One Need Meth Rehab?
Meth is an extremely addictive substance and is very difficult to quit without the assistance of certified counsellors at a meth rehab. Anyone who is suffering from dependence on meth should seek help from a reputable meth rehab centre as soon as possible.
Types of Meth Rehab
There are two main types of meth rehab which include inpatient and outpatient addiction treatment facilities. Understanding which type of meth rehab is best depends on the individual and severity of the addiction.
An outpatient addiction treatment centre is best for those addicts who have not yet ‘lost everything’ and would like to keep up the relative normalcy of their everyday lives while simultaneously getting the addiction treatment they need.
Inpatient facilities, also known a residential rehab centres, are typically reserved for those with a more severe addiction, who would benefit from access to 24-hour care and from being removed from their regular routine.
What are the Benefits of Outpatient Meth Rehab?
Unlike a residential programme, an outpatient meth rehab centre allows the addict to keep up with work and family obligations while still getting the appropriate addiction treatment they need. But there are also several other benefits of outpatient rehab:
- Convenient Location
Outpatient rehab centres, including The Cabin Hong Kong, are located in easy-to-reach locations, ensuring that getting to appointments is as easy as possible.
- Flexible Schedules
All appointments are made after work hours, and can be specifically designed to fit around even the busiest of schedules.
- Group and One-on-one Counselling Sessions
It is important for successful addiction recovery to partake in both personal and group counselling sessions which are both available at The Cabin Hong Kong.
- Support From Family and Loved Ones
Because outpatient meth rehab does not require an addict to leave home, this allows them the opportunity to reap the benefits of support from family and loved ones at who can help them on their road to recovery.
- Less Disruption to Daily Life
Because treatment takes place in the evenings, daily life is barely affected. Work and family obligations can be kept up with just a few hours each week devoted to treatment.
Is Meth Rehab Confidential?
Absolutely! The Cabin Hong Kong keeps the highest standards of confidentiality a priority, allowing our clients the ability to relax and focus their full attention on becoming successful in recovery. It is left only to our clients to decide who they wish to share their recovery with.
How Much Does Meth Rehab Cost?
Outpatient meth rehab is an extremely cost-effective option for meth addiction treatment. Aside from cost, however, be sure to also take into account the reputation, comprehensiveness of the programme and qualifications of counsellors before choosing a rehab for treatment.
Is Meth Rehab Covered by Insurance?
In many cases, yes. However, not all insurance companies are the same. Please contact us for further information on whether or not your specific insurance policy is accepted.
What Happens in Meth Rehab?
The meth addiction treatment programme at The Cabin Hong Kong is 6 months in length. After an initial assessment, clients are typically advised to begin with one personal session and 2 to 3 group sessions per week. Mirroring each client’s personal growth in recovery, the amount of weekly sessions will be adjusted accordingly. By the end of the six month programme, most clients will be attending only 1 session per week.
Why Hong Kong Residents are Choosing The Cabin Hong Kong for Meth Addiction Treatment
At The Cabin Hong Kong we are aware that drug addiction is of a private nature, and we adhere to the most discreet client-treatment rules possible. As an outpatient clinic, our clients can arrange and plan their own schedule with us in order to fit treatment around their work and social lives, and thus disrupt everyday life as little as possible.
We offer professional and comprehensive services to all of our clients – they will be able to take advantage of personal support and therapy, group meetings, necessary medication and family therapy sessions, where families have been severely affected by the addict’s meth addiction.
The meth addiction treatment at The Cabin Hong Kong is of the highest quality. However, some patients may wish or require more supervised support. In these cases we can easily move clients to our residential rehab, The Cabin Chiang Mai.
What Type of Continuing Care do I Need After Meth Rehab?
It is highly suggested that all clients find a sponsor – someone who is already in addiction recovery and can be of assistance when recovery is feeling like a struggle. It is also important to continue attending group support meetings as least once a week. Early recovery can be a difficult transition period, and it is important to stay surrounded by people who understand what you are going through in order to keep sobriety a priority.
As well, we encourage our clients to call us anytime they feel they are losing their grip on recovery. We can also help our clients find their sponsor as well as local support meetings.

There is No Time Like Now!
