Miracles Asia Sports Programme
30 Day Residential Sport’s Programme in Partnership with Thanyapura Sports Complex
Addiction Treatment for athletes and sports minded individuals
Miracles Asia offers the region’s most discreet treatment for addictions, mental health issues and with a speciality in dual diagnosis and co-occurring disorders. We focus on a tailor-made plan of recovery for our guests through delivering quality, one-on-one attention and care which can also encompass recovery with Sports.
For the last two years our residential treatment programme has been partnering with Thanyapura, an Olympic level fitness facility, and using its amazing facilities and expertise. The feedback we received from clients indicated a high desire to combine physical conditioning with emotional and spiritual healing. Because some of our clients wish to restore or maintain a high activity lifestyle, we have combined our proven, core addiction model, with an intensive physical conditioning component to offer a comprehensive treatment option for sports minded clients.
Our experienced staff at Miracles Asia understand that each guest is distinctive and responds differently to various types of therapy, which is why we offer multiple recovery programmes that are provided through a wide range of treatments. This unique approach to treatment ensures we can offer the level and type of treatment that each guest needs to get to his or her goals, not only in the first phase of treatment, but also after he or she has successfully fully completed treatment at Miracles Asia.
Most of the senior staff and owner’s councillors are in recovery themselves and are licensed professionals. Addiction requires an in-depth and detailed approach that treats the physical, mental, social and spiritual elements of each guest, rather than just the presenting problem. We are looking for the root causes of our guest’s addiction
Miracles Asia offers efficient, wide-ranging programming for people struggling with addiction and certain mental health concerns.

We understand how addictive behaviour can effect both those with active sporting lives or wishing to recover with a sports component. Miracles Asia has combined both sports and recovery to specifically address problematic behaviour relating to alcohol, gambling and substance misuse.
Sports Miracle clients benefit from a comprehensive medical and psychosocial assessment within 48-hours of arrival, and work with both an individual counsellor to develop their treatment goals, as well as their personal trainer to design personalised fitness plans.
The treatment day is divided into mornings that focus on individual and group counselling, and afternoons that emphasise physical training and conditioning at Thanyapura.

Therapeutic Treatment Models
At Miracles Asia we know that each guest has their own exceptional needs and goals. Because no one therapeutic model has been recognised to meet the needs of all substance abusers, we know that by offering a selection of suitable, recognized therapy styles the guest can get the most of the one that works best for them.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
A major component of CBT is that thoughts, feelings and behaviours are linked in a way that one effects and is influenced by the others. For example, feelings are impacted by your thoughts and behaviours, and your feelings impact your thoughts and behaviours. This idea gives some level of power to the guest to improve the unwanted side by addressing the other two. CBT is appealing to many clients.
Person Centred Therapy
Person-centred therapy moves away from the customary model of the therapist being the specialist. Rather, in person-centered therapy, the guest is regarded as the expert, and it is the therapist who listens to the client and is “there to encourage and support the guest and to guide the therapeutic process without interrupting or interfering with the guest’s process of self-discovery. This approach has been used who are dealing with substance use disorders and mental health disorders.
Twelve-step based therapy is a strategy designed to increase the likelihood of a substance abuser becoming part of and actively involved in 12-step self-help groups, thereby promoting abstinence.
Three key ideas predominate:
- acceptance, which includes the realization that substance abuse is a chronic, progressive disease over which one has no control, that life has become unmanageable because of drugs, that willpower alone is not enough to overcome the problem, and that abstinence is the only solution.
- surrender, which involves accessing a power greater than oneself, accepting the fellowship and support structure of other recovering substance abuser individuals, and following the recovery activities laid out by the 12-step program; and
- active involvement in 12-step meetings and related activities. The 12-step approach to addiction treatment is the longest recognized and debatably the most effective model across different levels of treatment.
Privacy & Confidentiality Assured
Discretion and confidentiality are very important to Miracles Asia and our guests. Confidentiality is our priority. We are purposely away from the public view to safeguard guests and keep the anonymity of our programme. No information is ever shared without our guests consent. Many of our guests simply “go on a trip to Thailand” and then return to their lives, but happy joyous and free.
