The Duty of Care the Directors and team at SafeHouse all sign comprises the following two-part pledge. It forms a portion of their contracts of employment. Any breach of this pledge constitutes a ‘gross breach of conduct’. This signifies and formalises our total respect for the seriousness of addiction and alcoholism. It is the backbone of our philosophy and relationship with our clients and their families.
The overall creation, personal structuring and delivery of an eclectic and affordable template for life, enabling our clients to escape the substances on which they depend. To provide a bridge to normal living: to successfully achieve our goal within a nurturing and comfortable residential treatment facility.
The above directly shapes the voluntary Duty of Care at SafeHouse Rehab Center Thailand. These principles are adopted from the point of first contact through to completion of treatment and beyond.
Duty of Care
- To proffer advice in only the client’s very best interests.
- To maintain full confidentiality and anonymity on their behalf.
- To treat them with respect, understanding and tolerance.
- To use our maximum reasonable endeavours to ensure they are kept safe of body and mind.
- That all treatments we utilise are delivered by experienced and trustworthy staff and consultants.
- To strictly adhere to the SafeHouse Primary Purpose.
Asia Addictions Treatment Providers Association (AATPA)
We have now registered a South-East Asia wide voluntary and self-regulatory body called the Asia Addictions Treatment Providers Association (AATPA). We are currently devising Articles of Association and the Guiding Principles. Its primary function will be to create and oversee a Code of Conduct and Standards governing treatment programs offered by all providers. We will soon be inviting all alcohol and drug rehabilitation Centres in Thailand to become members, and will then expand to neighbouring Nations and beyond. We look forward to the AATPA gradually expanding to become a highly respected body, encouraging standard to which all Asia rehabs will aspire.
In creating and adopting our own such ethical standards of treatment and care, and inviting others to follow suit, we are seeking to demonstrate that what is best for the client will prove best for the rehab sector as a whole.
