Rehabs in Thailand?

I’ve worked for a few of the Thailand Rehabs and had some relationships with some of the others.

The rehab I work at presently is  The River in Chiang Mai please take a look at their website:

The Beach Rehab Thailand is putting the client firmly back at the heart of addiction treatment. We equip clients with the ‘mental toolkit’ needed not simply to survive without drugs or alcohol, but to truly thrive and lead a productive and fulfilling life.

The Beach Rehab provides the following:



Founded by the pioneers of the Asian rehab industry, it’s our mission to provide outstanding treatment that is genuinely client-focused, pioneering, and among the world’s best addiction treatment centers.



Located on the tranquil shores of Thailand’s Gulf coast, The Beach Rehab is Asia’s only beachside addiction treatment center. Our idyllic location enables us to provide a unique range of sea and land-based Outdoor Therapy activities.

Our program combines evidenced-based treatment modalities, a diet that has been designed specifically to help the addicted brains healing process, meditation and mindfulness, and Asia’s first Addiction Nutraceutical Therapy program. We are staffed with addiction and behavioral health experts from around the globe to deliver a superior quality of care.

Addiction Nutraceutical Therapy


Asia’s first Addiction Nutraceutical Therapy program promotes biochemical recovery to restore the balance within the brain’s reward center and reduce cravings.



We are proud to be one of the only rehabs in the world to provide a diet specifically designed to elevate dopamine levels to help reduce cravings and the risk of relapse. Luckily, it tastes delicious too!

I was also the Head Counsellor at Hope Rehab in 2014 – 2015:

Hope is a very straight forward enthusiastic program aimed towards giving people a life long change in their attitude and behaviours regarding drugs.  Hope rehab has a long standing reputation having been established for five years.

I was a senior Therapist at Lanna Rehab and greatly contributed to the structure of their program and workbooks.   Lanna Rehab is a drug and alcohol rehab located in Chiang Mai.

I have also been an “Addictions Specialist” / Clinical Counselor for the Dawn Rehab in Chiang Mai. The Dawn covers a vast range of needs, from co-dependency, addiction and mental health issues.

I have also had some experience in dealing with  Hope House in Thailand, which is a 2nd stage soberhouse.   2nd Stage is where people get themselves well and apply what they know in Thailand.

I have also in the past made a referral to DARA rehab in Koh Chang which recently just merged with Lanna Rehab.  DARA stands for drug and alcohol rehab asia, it primarily deals with drug and alcohol issues on the tropical island of Koh Chang located in the south of Thailand.
