The Spirituality of Balinese Culture Can Seem Like a Lifeline
Bali is a sanctuary far away from the stress and pressures often felt back home, with addiction clinics offering a range of leisure pursuits that encompass local arts, culture, sports and adventure experiences.
The natural beauty of the island is also viewed as a key component of successful drug and alcohol treatment by helping to rebuild physical health and providing the tools to rediscover yourself and build a connection to the natural world.
Draconian Rules Related to Drug Crime in Indonesia
Indonesia has a serious drug problem so it might seem strange that Bali is a leading medical tourism destination with a focus on the treatment of substance abuse disorders. Police and the drug squad (BNNP- National Narcotics Agency) frequently make arrests as dealers, couriers, smugglers and users get rounded up and punished severely by international standards.
A zero tolerance approach to drug use means extended prison sentences are common and the death penalty is served up to drug smugglers with no exceptions made for non-residents.
Despite the consequences of getting involved with drugs in Bali, there seems to be a steady stream of tourists who don’t fully grasp the severity of their actions and continue to use and abuse substances.
The main point to consider here is that anyone considering Bali as a destination for addiction recovery should be aware that their addictive behaviors or potential to relapse could get them on the wrong side of the law.
