Addiction Counselling Services

Demanding work and family life often means people find it hard to get the treatment they need to overcome their addictions. This is even especially true in a city such as Hong Kong. However, addiction does not go away by itself and only gets worse over time. Finding proper treatment is imperative to ensuring a positive future for those suffering from addiction.

Given this, The Cabin Hong Kong has developed a range of treatment options designed to effectively tackle addiction. Featuring our intensive tailored programme known as Recovery Zones, the gold standard in addiction treatment besides an inpatient programme, the clinic offers the following services:

  • 1 on 1 Addiction Counselling
  • Group Process and Workshops
  • Family Programme
  • Advanced Recovery and Continuing Care
  • Psychiatric Assessment & Medication Review
  • Fast-tracked access to Asia’s leading inpatient clinics, The Cabin Chiang Mai and The Edge

The Cabin Hong Kong is also involved in the wider community. The links below will direct you to more information about our work with schools, businesses and other behavioural health practices.

Our Intensive Outpatient Rehab Programme

The Cabin Hong Kong’s outpatient treatment programme is a 6-month treatment plan catering to clients’ individual needs based on our clinical assessment. Over the 6-month term, clients will have the opportunity, determined by clinical needs, to select groups from our à la carte offerings. Combined with group treatment, clients will also attend individual sessions 1-3 times weekly based on their specific needs. Group sessions are 60 minutes; individual sessions are 50 minutes. Long-term addiction recovery has been proven to be best attained by stepping down treatment over an extended period of time. Our flexible group offerings allow for clients to create a more moderate treatment plan after completing their initial 6 months.

Groups offered throughout the weekday evenings are:

What is Addiction? / Mind Mapping
Family Programme
Recovery Zones
ABCs of CBT: Anger, Fear & Shame
Advanced Recovery
Sex Addiction
Functional Relationships Programme
Boundaries & Co-dependency
Continuing Care
Recovery Vision & S.M.A.R.T. Goals

Recovery Zones – Groups 

What is Addiction? / Mind Mapping
Monday Evenings 7.00 – 8.00PM
Clients are taken through an overview of the disease of addiction. They will be introduced to the evidence proving that addiction is a primary disease, develop an understanding of cross-addiction and an overview of the 12-Step approach to recovery. Clients present their own evidence of their disease using Mind Maps. Interactive discussions centre on how the disease is still present in their lives, even though they are abstinent from the substance or behaviour.

Family Programme
Tuesday Evenings 6.30 – 7.30PM
Family members of those suffering from addiction are invited to attend this supportive and educational group, where they can learn about and participate in their loved one’s recovery and also begin their own healing and recovery from addiction. Family and friends of those suffering from addiction frequently experience depression, anxiety and stress. Our Family Programme is designed to help equip family members to cope with these stressors, and maintain their resilience in the face of such difficulties. Additionally, as their loved ones get into active recovery, many new questions arise, which this group can help address.

ABCs of CBT: Anger, Fear, Shame
Wednesday Evenings 7.00 – 8.00PM
“Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is perhaps one of the most frequently used psychotherapeutic orientations, with considerable research supporting its effectiveness and adaptability in clinical practice,” according to the US National Registry of Evidence Based Programs and Practices. Clients will gain an understanding of the ‘ABC’ model of dissecting their problematic thinking and behaviour, in order to lead a happier and healthier life. CBT is proven effective in treating depression, anxiety and addiction. Clients will actively engage in CBT practices in this group.

Continuing Care Group
Thursday Mornings 11.30 – 12.30PM
Continuing Care Group sessions offer a safe and supportive space for clients to process the experience of longer-term recovery. Having completed intensive treatment, clients continue the important work they have begun with support from their peers and a professional counsellor. Balancing the demands of recovery, work and family life can be challenging, and continuing to be part of an outpatient therapeutic group gives clients the space they need to share any concerns, relapse triggers and family stressors. Each of these professionally-led sessions offer a different recovery-based theme or topic for discussion, as well as space for a check-in, personal sharing and group support for any challenges experienced in early recovery.

Advanced Recovery Programme
Thursday Evenings 7.00 – 8.00PM
A significant portion of treatment is focused on the behaviours and thinking patterns of the past, in order to learn and correct those patterns. This group offers an opportunity for clients to focus their efforts on creating a successful future. Clients are guided through an exploration of their personal core values and apply them to the 4 major areas of their life: relationships, work/ education/ vocation, social life and recovery. They will create S.M.A.R.T. (specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and time-bound) goals in order to achieve their optimal life. Weekly sessions give clients the accountability, support and education needed to realise their full potential.

Functional Relationships Programme
Friday Mornings 11.30 – 12.45PM
Clients will be introduced to family of origin, and childhood developmental trauma, the shaping of the co-dependent personality and how this underpins unhealthy patterns in relationships. The roots of addiction that may arise from within family systems and during childhood development will be explored. A thorough discussion of boundaries, boundary failures and boundary violations will be offered. Clients will understand the underlying issues that drive enmeshed and avoidant relationships and how healthy boundaries can heal those relationships. Goals include working on conflict resolution and ultimately achieving intimacy.

Recovery Zones
Friday Evenings 7.00 – 8.00PM
This holistic approach to addiction recovery assists clients in identifying the early warning signs of a relapse. It is often seen that relapse is not an event, but a process that begins long before the actual behaviour. Clients are guided through the 3 major zones of recovery. They will build on their understanding of their triggers, slippery behaviours, toxic emotions and negative thinking patterns that might lead to relapse. Client presentations and open discussions about relapse prevention will clarify the ‘Recovery Zone’ needed for successful treatment.

Specialist Monthly Groups by Demand
1. Boundaries & Co-dependency
Specialist Groups

Clients will be introduced to the concept of Codependence and unhealthy patterns in relationships. A thorough discussion of Boundaries, Boundary failures and Boundary violations will be offered. They will understand the underlying issues that drive enmeshed and avoidant relationships and how healthy boundaries can heal those relationships. The concept of Love Addiction will also be explored. CBT tools will be utilized to better achieve healthy and intimate relationships.

2. Recovery Vision & S.M.A.R.T. Goals
Specialist Groups

An abundant amount of time and effort in treatment is focused on the behaviors and thinking patterns of the past in order to learn and correct those patterns. This group will offer an opportunity for clients to spend time and effort to best create an abundant future. Clients will be guided through an exploration of their core values and apply them to the 4 major areas of their life: Relationships, Work/Education/Vocation, Social Life & Recovery. S.M.A.R.T. (Specific, Measureable, Attainable, Realistic & Time bound) goals and weekly sessions will give clients the accountability, support and education in order to realize their fullest potential.

3. Sex Addiction (Men’s Group)
Specialist Groups

This gender specific group will provide an environment for clients to openly discuss their addictive behavior with sexual arousal. Facilitated by a trained professional who is experienced in treating sexual addiction, clients will gain a deep understanding of the origins of the behavior, subtleties of recovery and tools to manage that recovery. Clients will be guided through a timeline of the sexual arousal patterns, an understanding of the loss of control of behavior and a full accounting of the costs and consequences. Supportive discussion from other recovering sex addicts will heal the shame that has kept the addict from seeking help.
