Covid19 has changed the lives of people altogether. Lockdown has seriously impacted the mental and physical health of people all around the world. Mental health issues leading to addiction problems have become quite numerous in the region. 

Solace Asia Sdn Bhd is one of the well-renowned Malaysian organizations that has been helping individuals in their battle against drug and alcohol addiction since 2014. We have been receiving many requests from all around the world by individuals seeking out help and support.  

Solace Sabah has the headquarters located in the prime location in Kota Kinabalu. We offer various rehabilitation services, keeping in view the needs and requirements of each individual. Due to the high demand, we have shifted our services to Kuala Lumpur under the new name of Solace Asia. We still accept clients every week.  

Keeping in view the current covid conditions, Solace Asia has remained operational during lockdown to cater to the increasing demand for addiction rehabilitation services. We have provided full support to people suffering from addiction and other co-occurring mental health disorders. 

CEO & Clinical Director of Solace Asia, Dr. Prem Kumar Shanmugam, has rendered many services in this regard. Solace Asia has successfully observed an increase of 70% in stimulant-based treatment linked to psychotic episodes. This is usually a result of amphetamine, methamphetamine (also considered ice abuse, syabu abuse, or crystal abuse. The company has also observed a spike of 50% in questions and inquiries related to alcohol and drug addiction.  

According to Dr. Prem Kumar Shanmugam, Solace Asia has seen an increase of 30-50% in inquiries. The questions are usually related to seeking addiction treatment, behavioral addictions, sex addictions, gambling addictions, gaming addictions, alcohol, nicotine, heroin addictions, or internet addictions.  

We cater to the demands of a significant number of clients all around the globe. We have numerous international clients from countries like Bangladesh, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, and United Arab Emirates. However, due to the lockdown scenario, we have been providing our services to only Malaysian nationals. However, as soon as the national borders are reopened, our clinical teams will welcome and deal the clients from allover the world.  

If you or anyone in your family or friend circle is experiencing addiction, it is highly preferable to seek assistance. You can contact the Syabu rehab of Solace Asia either via email at mail@solaceasia.org or by calling 0128854686 / 0197154686.
