Luxury Traumatic Reenactment Treatment in Thailand

Quite the puzzle: No matter what you do or how hard you try, you always get drawn to toxic relationships.

“Why do I keep sabotaging myself?”

The answer is trauma reenactment. An unconscious behavior in trauma survivors, reenactment occurs as a difficulty to separate past emotional pain from what’s happening in the present.

Shedding the chains of trauma starts with a holistic approach to therapy. At The Diamond Rehab Thailand, each client receives unconditional support and treatment that allows them to regain full control over their life.

Time for a change?

We at The Diamond Rehab believe in treating the underlying issues, which are the root cause of each disorder. Each treatment program is individually created, based on the client’s needs by our world-class staff.

What is traumatic reenactment?

Traumatic reenactment is explained as reexperiencing unresolved feelings of neglect, abuse, betrayal, or abandonment. It happens in trauma survivors as a subconscious emotional response.

The traumatic affect i.e. feelings are so intense that a person is unable to process them properly, which leads to the reenactment of the original trauma. According to Sigmund Freud’s Beyond the Pleasure Principle, a repetition compulsion is an attempt to master and control the psychological responses to earlier trauma.

Childhood abuse and subsequent destructive behaviors

Childhood trauma sufferers have low self-esteem and poor coping strategies, making them easy targets for predators. Over two-thirds of children have reported having traumatic experiences by the age of 16, SAMHSA explains in their article Understanding Child Trauma.

To cope with that extreme stress, shame, and bad memories, children are likely to dissociate themselves. Besides dissociative defenses, children develop ego deficits and experience internal states such as confusion, anxiety, numbness, fear, and depression.

Young men and women who were sexually or emotionally abused as children report low arousal and hyposexuality, as well as a tendency toward problematic intimate relationships in their present lives. This type of romantic relationship includes physical abuse, sexual abuse, or codependency.

When reenactment happens, the person takes the role of either the perpetrator or the victim. According to an article published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health titled Childhood and Adult Trauma Experiences of Incarcerated Persons, 56% of criminals (male inmates) reported having childhood physical trauma.

What is a trauma triangle?

The trauma triangle represents relationship dynamics, roles, and patterns seen in survivors of trauma. It features three roles – victim, rescuer, and persecutor. All three roles avoid self-responsibility using different mechanisms.

The victim: Sees no options and feels helpless to change anything. They take no responsibility at all. It’s common in people who were neglected in childhood.

The rescuer: Diverts attention to what others think and tries to control the situation by controlling others. The rescuer takes responsibility for others but neglects how they feel themselves. 

The persecutor: Blames others and gets angry when their needs aren’t met. Takes no responsibility and has a tendency towards violence. Underneath the surface, they feel shame for having their own needs and desires.

What are the 3 types of trauma?

The three types of trauma include acute, chronic, and complex trauma. Acute trauma occurs as a consequence of a single traumatic event. Chronic trauma is a result of repeated long-term events such as domestic abuse or violence. Complex trauma develops from multiple various traumatic events, often experienced in relationships with people.

How we treat trauma

At The Diamond Rehab, you’ll get the tools and skills you need to overcome past trauma and start a new life. A carefully designed therapeutic process helps trauma victims understand reenactments and increase their self-awareness.

Treatment options for trauma reenactment include:

Drug therapy

Exposure therapy

Cognitive behavioral therapy

EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing)


Psychodynamic treatment

Group sessions

Trauma therapy is based on mental health treatment and procedures. As the 2019 Harvard report by Adam P. Stern, MD explains, psychotherapy can provide a lasting symptom reduction in victims of childhood sexual abuse, emotional abuse, and all who experienced traumatic stress.

Trauma recuperation requires dedication, determination, courage, and constant practice. With an expert by your side, you will learn to overcome obstacles in everyday life.

Trauma treatment at The Diamond Rehab

Healing from trauma calls for absolute safety and trust within the therapeutic relationship. Our inpatient trauma rehab focuses on you, the patient, to provide true trauma-informed care.

At The Diamond Rehab, our staff has multi-year experience in treating trauma caused by adverse childhood experiences, child sexual abuse, as well as psychiatric symptoms associated with it.

Additionally, as a substance rehab center, we provide dual diagnosis and treatment as well. As a consequence of past traumatic experiences, many victims develop substance abuse problems. Our doctors are trained for this therapeutic situation and provide full support to clients experiencing withdrawal symptoms.

Personalized plan and supervised care

Breaking the bond with past trauma requires battling a very specific reenactment pattern. Our staff develops and adjusts the treatment plan for each individual patient to give them the best tools.

Whether you’re a victim of early trauma, an abusive partner, or wish to overcome repetition compulsion, we’ll provide an environment where you can get better permanently.

Daily access to experts

The road to recovery is long but can be made easier with proper support. At our residential treatment center, clients can reach a doctor, therapist, or advisor 24/7. Approaching every patient in a non-judgmental and helpful way makes dealing with your own trauma more efficient.

Five-star accommodation

Peaceful, luxurious, and equipped to the highest standards, our retreat will become your safe haven. Each client gets a separate room with a swimming pool, room service, and access to activities they love. The number of clients is limited, so privacy is guaranteed.

  • Personalized nutrition

    A proper diet is a cornerstone of good health, which is why we hired world-class chefs to make your meals. You choose what you want to eat, and we prepare it from the finest ingredients. At our inpatient trauma rehab, we also offer vegan, kosher, and halal options.

  • Favorite activities

    To ensure lasting recovery, activities are integrated into personal therapy plans. You choose the activities yourself – from nature hikes to scuba diving. Nothing is mandatory, but everything is available.

  • Fraction of the price

    World-class rehabilitation is accessible to everyone who needs it. Due to significantly lower living costs, Thai rehab centers have positioned themselves on the world stage as the go-to destinations for premium treatment at a reasonable price.

  • Schedule your arrival

    Begin your journey to recovery when it most suits you. We understand the busy schedules of modern living – that’s why we encourage planning ahead. Start when you’re ready and we’ll help you cross the finish line.

After three failed attempts at recovery, I had given up. My main problem is that I suffer from both depression and alcoholism. Rehabs I went to treated one or the other, not both. I heard about the Diamond from my niece who visited Phuket last year. My expectations were low, but I gave them a call. They explained their approach in detail, with no strings attached. This transparency was what helped me decide. I was there for 6 weeks in February and March. Might sound like a cliché, but they showed me perspective. Still a lot of work to do, but after a long time I’m looking forward to tomorrow again. I am forever grateful.

To be honest, last month was really long in terms of mental experience but I'll try to sum it up. The Diamond is a high-end, unique, special… that’s why they call it ‘The Diamond’. The specialists are experienced and caring. If you’re looking for a place to receive personal treatment, this is your place. As expected from a high-end treatment center your addiction will not shock them. They have helped others before. The Diamond is also unique because of how big it is yet they don’t get many clients all at once. When I was there, there weren't many clients, which was great because it wasn't too busy. We had time and energy to focus on ourselves. Their facility is luxurious with infinity pools and great suites. They focus on giving each person the care he needs. The way Diamond Rehab was set up made it possible for people to get to know each other well, and the ratio of staff to clients was also very good. For me, that was the most important thing. I am forever grateful. Thank you Theo and the team, you change lives!

Great place, with amazing atmosphere, away from the craziness of the party town! This is by far the best facility in Thailand, the staff is fantastic and Theo is the best human being on the planet! If you want to get help, feel empathy and support - I recommend, if you want someone just to take your money and not to care about you - this is not the place for you!

When I arrived at The Diamond, I was completely lost in life. I knew that being an alcoholic would ultimately lead to my death. I never thought that I'd find empathy from anyone but I was wrong. Theo and the team were extremely respectful and caring. They are Professionals! I picked deluxe suite and although that wasn't their top offer, everything was luxurious (as expected from a luxury rehab center). I met other addicts which additionally helped us to discover the right way. We had gourmet dinners, morning walks, daily gym sessions with a professional instructor that did unique programs tailored to each one of us. My room was always clean and tidy. The wifi is extremely fast which is a really good perk as I own a couple of businesses and needed to stay in touch. I stayed for 56 days and after the first month it felt that I was on a vacation. Felt much better and absolutely loved everything there. I left sober with an aftercare plan. It's been about 6 months since I left and I've received calls every month. Can't be more grateful for my choice to visit them!

My experience at The Diamond was a life changing experience of change. They helped me change my lifestyle. Since then I see the world through a different perspective. I have forgotten what being sober was, sadly. The Minnesota model worked, although I've been visiting regular rehab programs. I had a change in my diet, we did exercise, we had meditation classes and outings that helped me engage with my group and the outside world. Compared to normal rehabs, The Diamond is truly a luxury rehab center. My room was spacious, cleaned regularly, amazing food, fantastic therapists, everything was on point, also had an amazing view with pool. The whole experience was amazing. I can say thousands of words and will still have something to say. Thank you Diamond!

Phuket is an amazing place where lives change!.. I struggled a lot through out my life, drugs, alcohol and gambling. I felt that this needed to change, and luckily I managed to sustain a well paying job for the past two years. For some reason, all the pieces came together right when I felt that the change is about to come. A friend of mine forwarded me to the Diamond.From the moment I arrived, I felt welcomed and supported by the staff and fellow patients. The luxurious facility made me feel like I was on a vacation, rather than in a rehab center. The team at The Diamond Rehab Thailand are incredibly experienced and understanding. Through individual and group therapy sessions, I learned how to manage my emotions in a healthier way. I met a couple of other addict which made me feel even better since we all wanted to thrive. The rehab, the rooms, the therapy hall, the food, everything was luxurious exactly how they state it in their website. I never thought that a luxury rehabilitation center would make me feel different (from previous experience) but that was a game changer. From my meal plans, to my activities schedule... everything was made up for me. They do care for their patients and are there to help us. It's been a year since I left and whenever I think of the Diamond, a smile comes to my face. I hope this review helps other people take the first step and stop hesitate, you won't lose anything. Thank you Theo and Kassondra, thank you Diamond!

My hardest and yet the most valuable two months of my life. I am forever grateful for my experience at luxurious Diamond Rehab Thailand in Phuket. As someone who struggled with alcohol addiction due to my depression, I never thought I could find a place where I could heal and recover. The rehab is top-notch, and the staff was professional and caring. The program was strictly built to resolve my needs(I had a luxury suite and personalized nutritional plan...) The specialists are experienced and helped me overcome my addiction. I've never thought of going for a luxury rehab but I was amazed by the personal approach from Theo. The Diamond's team helped me regain my self-confidence and provided me with the support to maintain my sobriety after I left the center. The program was holistic, and I felt like I was in a safe and supportive environment every step of the way. They definitely deserve more than 5 stars! It is a luxury rehab center that truly cares about its patients, and I am grateful for the life changing experience I had there
