Effective and Affordable Tramadol Addiction Treatment for Saudis at The Cabin Chiang Mai
Tramadol is a synthetic opioid analgesic. In other words, it’s a painkiller – just like morphine. But while morphine is derived directly from the opium plant, Tramadol is a synthetic drug made to activate the opioid receptors the same way that morphine does. It’s most commonly prescribed to post-surgery patients or for chronic pain, such as severe arthritis.
Like most painkillers, tolerance to the drug can build up quickly, requiring the user to take more and more of the drug to get the same effects. In other cases, even if the patient is prescribed the drug for only a short time, the euphoric feeling that they get can make them want to keep taking the pill on a regular basis.
Using Tramadol in higher doses than prescribed, or for non-medical purposes all together are the most common ways to become addicted.
Signs of Tramadol Addiction:
- Increased tolerance
- Loss of interest in many activities including work, school and hobbies
- Loss of appetite
- Compulsive use
Long-term Effects of Tramadol Abuse:
- Cognitive impairment
- Slowed reaction times
- Respiratory failure
- Serotonin syndrome

Tramadol Addiction Treatment at The Cabin Chiang Mai
Although a synthetic opioid, the withdrawal symptoms present themselves in a similar manner to those of other opiates. Symptoms include muscle cramps, nausea, anxiety, depression, paranoia, confusion, agitation, body aches, diarrhoea and more.
These symptoms can cause severe discomfort and can be dangerous in some cases. Clients who receive tramadol addiction treatment will first be admitted to our international-standard hospital where a team of professionals, led by Thailand’s leading detox doctor, will care for them. In many cases of Tramadol addiction, clients are put on a schedule of Methadone treatment for the first few days of withdrawal, to help ease symptoms. Our medical team will perform regular physical exams and prescribe supplemental medication as needed to assuage any uneasiness.
Tramadol detox can result in severe bouts of depression and extreme levels of anxiety, which must be treated by professional psychiatrists and counsellors. Also, many cases of Tramadol addiction are preceded by underlying mental health disorders that must be diagnosed and treated simultaneously.
At The Cabin Chiang Mai, we use a combination of psychiatry, group and one-on-one counselling and holistic therapies to create a comprehensive programme that allows our clients to deal with both the physical and psychological aspects of addiction.
We use our own unique Recovery Zones treatment model to address the cycle of addiction at its root. This personalised treatment programme includes a culturally-sensitive version of 12-Step techniques, cognitive behavioural therapy, and mindfulness. We give clients the tools to avoid relapse by training them to identify their particular triggers and build a feasible and practical relapse prevention plan. These techniques help them to confront and overcome the challenges they may face outside of rehab.
We believe that no Tramadol addiction treatment programme is complete without a comprehensive health and wellness plan. We use massage and fitness therapy to restore physical and mental well-being. This gives clients a foundation of knowledge – through specific training on morphine addiction and Tramadol relapse prevention – that prepares them for long-term sobriety.
