CHIANG MAI REHAB

Rehab in Chiang Mai Which One is Right for You?

Cool weather, hilly landscapes, and plenty of local attractions bring scores of visitors to Chiang Mai every year. With a convenient and well-connected international airport, along with several quality facilities to choose from, rehab in Chiang Mai is an excellent destination. If you are seeking recovery from addiction in a scenic and peaceful area, where prices are affordable and service standards are high, drug rehab in Chiang Mai may just be what you’re looking for.

As Thailand’s second largest city, Chiang Mai is a fully modern and cosmopolitan city with plenty of shopping malls and other conveniences. Yet it also manages to retain a strong sense of its culture and history, despite receiving a steady stream of visitors throughout the year. The sizable old town at the city centre is surrounded by centuries-old walls and a moat, separating the most distinctive cultural areas from the main streets that surround them. Chiang Mai is filled with shrines, temples, and local markets, as well as plenty of forested areas, mountains, and other natural highlights to explore outside the city limits.

Description:

The Calm is a sober living facility located in Chiang Mai, Thailand. 

They are located in a 12 bed facility, all single occupancy, and has separate buildings for men and women. The facility is around 3km from the centre of town so provides easy access to Chiang Mai, its activities and its recovery community. 

Available for clients who have already completed a period of time in a primary treatment facility, The Calm provides a programme that aims to help you maintain sobriety in the real world after rehab through support, connection and community. 

Sober living at The Calm doesn’t aim to replicate the intensity and structure of a primary treatment centre but rather give you the opportunity to take responsibility for yourself and your recovery. They aim to empower clients to build their own recovery vision whilst still having a support network to correct any remaining issues. 

Within the programme, they provide individual counselling sessions, sessions with your recovery coach, process groups, check out groups, meditation and excursions. In addition, there is the expectation that you will attend support groups and build your own programme of additional activities.

Situated, as the name suggests, alongside the Ping River, this rehab facility in Chiang Mai offers a very Thai chic vibe and large green lawns.  

The River Rehab is a partnership between the original founder of The Cabin Chiang Mai and a local hospitality, food and restaurant entrepreneur. This partnership ensures a strong clinical programme alongside a comfortable and smooth stay for clients.

Alongside their evidence-based behavioral programme, The River Rehab has a number of innovative elements to their treatment approach that have never previously been offered outside of North America. These include their ‘Dopamine Diet’ and ‘Nutraceutical’ supplementation. These help the brain to restore its chemical balance, particularly reward chemicals as these become impaired during active addiction. 

The majority of their clients come from a global network of referring professionals so they don’t have a huge online presence but do provide quality, affordable care.

Description:

The Dawn Rehab is located alongside the Ping River around 40 minutes from central Chiang Mai. It is a well appointed facility which combines an old traditional structure with more modern buildings. 

The Dawn Rehab is unique in terms of offering programmes that treat not only addiction, but also general mental health symptoms and stressed work executives. Since a large part of their programme is focused upon mental health, most clients come here for their mental health issues rather than for addiction treatment.

As one of the two fully Thai owned rehabs in Thailand, they have a clinical team with more Asian professionals so they can work well with clients from Asia because of the increased understanding of the cultural and family dynamics in play. Compared to other rehabs in Chiang Mai, they are at the mid to high price point with a month of treatment costing $12,000.

The Edge Rehab is part of The Cabin Group and has its own village within the The Cabin’s rehab facility in Chiang Mai. After noticing that some young men struggled to engage in a more traditional addiction treatment programme and could sometimes be a disruptive element to the wider community, The Edge Rehab was launched as a programme that has been specifically designed for a particular type of young man. They only treat men between the ages of 18 and 25 years. 

The programme is less intensive from a psychological perspective and focuses more on physical activity, community and structure. Clients have a choice between following either a triathlon training programme or a Thai boxing training programme whilst they are in treatment. 

Whilst they do good work and the programme certainly works for some young men, there are certainly other young men who would be better suited in a more traditional rehab programme where they would be able to engage in a higher level of psychological care. 

Recently, they have seen a larger number of gaming and internet addicts seeking treatment at The Edge. The minimum stay is 60 days.

Description:

One of the oldest rehabs in Thailand, The Cabin Chiang Mai was arguably the market leader for many years in terms of size, treatment outcomes and international reputation. The Cabin worked with a large variety of clients including celebrities, senior business executives and professionals. Over the past few years, it has gone through a lot of changes as several of the founding management moved on. 

As it is by far the largest rehab centre in Asia, from a facility perspective, they have no match with a private hospital, several swimming pools, a well-equipped gym and numerous restaurants. From a treatment perspective, they offer a wide range of treatment options and modalities, although some clients may find that the size can be overwhelming and hard to find that personal touch.   

Within its Chiang Mai facility, The Cabin has four ‘villages’. They have separate men’s and women’s programmes, both of which have a strong slant towards trauma being a defining characteristic of causing addiction. In the other two villages, they have two other programmes, Resort 12 and The Edge.

Description:

As the first and only LGBT rehab in Thailand, Resort 12 was launched in 2016 as a specific facility for the LGBT community. It was launched with great fanfare with such names as Elton John and Boy George promoting the project. The roots of its launch came about because of feedback from gay clients, particularly those who were involved in the ‘Chemsex’ scene, that sharing some of their using and sexual history in group settings, with straight clients, could be difficult because of the lack of understanding.

Statistically, it has also been shown that there are higher rates of addiction within the LGBT community. 

Resort 12 is a 20 bed rehab facility in Chiang Mai which has its own village within The Cabin Chiang Mai‘s facilities. All of the clinical team and the majority of the staff there are themselves identifying as LGBT. This does mean that treatment is very LGBT focused, covering such topics as internalised homophobia alongside addiction and trauma. 

The team there are passionate about recovery and the LGBT community.

Lanna rehab is 4 years old and is a 20 bed rehab facility in Chiang Mai. The owners are a nurse from the UK and a previous Microsoft sales executive from Australia who previously worked at Dara Rehab. 

They have some unique philosophies around addiction and treatment that may work for some but not for others. One of their interesting perspectives is that they don’t hire counsellors who are in recovery themselves. In addition, they individualise care by letting each counsellor concentrate on treating clients with their own particular skill set. 

Lanna Rehab also allows clients to have 24/7 access to phones and internet. This does allow clients to be able to keep in touch with work, family, friends and social media whilst they are away in Thailand. They also treat mental health disorders alongside addiction and offer a 5 week rather than a more common 4 week treatment programme.

Banyantree 21 Rehab is located in Mae Taeng, around 50km from Chiang Mai in a very picturesque part of northern Thailand. It is owned and run by a married couple, the husband being British and the wife Thai. This Chiang Mai rehab facility is in a remote location which does have the advantage of really getting you away from your environment and from any temptations. However, it is also a long way from any medical facilities and out of centre activities. 

The reason behind the 21 in the name is because their signature treatment programme is 21 days rather than a more traditional 30-60 days. They have a rather different approach to traditional treatment – the central facets of their programme being a Thai herbal healing potion, mindfulness practice and person centered therapy. The herbal detox consists of three phases: cleansing, purging and balancing. 

Banyantree 21 rehab facilities are not equipped for an actual medical detox onsite so if you require a detox, it is recommended that you undertake this prior to arrival.

Chiang Mai Thailand’s top rehab destination

While Thailand as a whole has thrived as a destination for medical tourism, rehabs in Chiang Mai have been particularly popular and successful – perhaps as a result of the celebrities who have sought treatment there over the years. Whatever the reason, Chiang Mai is indeed home to more than its share of highly rated rehab centres. These drug and alcohol rehab centres have lately welcomed clients from around the world, including the US, Canada, UK, Australia, and the Middle East.

Is Chiang Mai the best place for rehab and treatment?

Chiang Mai’s appeal as a rehab destination has much to do with its success in attracting tourists in general. Although the city itself is large, and there are over 10 facilities offering drug and alcohol rehab in Chiang Mai, the atmosphere is nevertheless one of peace and tranquillity. Far quieter than hotspots like Bangkok and Phuket, Chiang Mai manages to balance its thriving cultural and commercial areas with a relaxing and slow-paced day-to-day environment. All the while, Chiang Mai’s surrounding hills and scenic mountains remain accessible via a short drive.

What do Chiang Mai rehab centres offer?

A wide range of rehab services is available, including medical detoxification, primary inpatient treatment, secondary treatment (e.g., sober living houses), and outpatient counselling. Treatment is offered for alcohol addiction, drug addiction, PTSD and other trauma-related conditions, mental health problems, and dual diagnosis. 

A positive culture of recovery is a notable feature of Chiang Mai’s rehab centres. Of the many people who attend rehab as clients, a significant number of them later start working there, while also attending or facilitating active AA/NA meetings. Support groups for loved ones of addicts are also available (e.g. Women’s Alcoholics Anonymous). 

Treatment programmes are often supplemented with holistic therapy, as well as a variety of unique cultural excursions to see and appreciate the wider area. For young adults and LGBT clients, specialist programmes are also available at some rehabs in the area.

What should you expect from Chiang Mai rehab?

Primary treatment at alcohol and drug rehab in Chiang Mai generally revolves around evidence-based psychological therapy and behavior modification. These methods are administered by fully trained and licensed staff, usually with a great deal of personal attention given to each client. Mindfulness activities and physical therapy, as well as excursions around the nearby points of interest, are often included at primary treatment facilities. Excursions are likely to include boat rides, jungle walks, visits to traditional villages, and temple tours.

How much does Chiang Mai rehab cost?

With so many Thailand rehab centres to choose from, it should be no surprise that the cost for treatment varies from facility to facility. Yet each of them offers excellent value, particularly when compared to their counterparts in Western countries such as the US, UK, and Australia. Thailand’s low cost of living allows for high-quality treatment at mid-range prices. Costs of Chiang Mai rehab per 4-week period tend to fit within the following description:

  • Primary treatment in a luxury rehab: $10,000-$16,000 per month
  • Primary treatment in an affordable rehab: $7,000-$10,000 per month
  • Secondary treatment (sober living): from $3,000-$6,000 per month

Getting here

Chiang Mai International Airport is one of the busiest in the country, receiving direct flights from all around Asia, as well as other destinations such as Qatar. In most cases, Western visitors will need to arrive via another airport (usually Suvarnabhumi, in Bangkok), before catching a short connecting flight that takes you up to Chiang Mai. Any rehab in Chiang Mai will offer to pick you up from the airport when you arrive.
