10 Reasons to Choose Drug Rehab in Thailand

When a person is struggling with drug or alcohol addiction and finally comes to the decision to consider an addiction treatment facility they can often be overwhelmed with the number of options that appear available. Quickly once they start calling different centers they find long waiting lists and high fees. The exercise becomes more of a process of elimination until they find what they believe is the best center for their needs that can accept them on their schedule. When considering an alcohol or drug rehab in Thailand there are options. Here are some of the top reasons that clients choose Serenity over the other centers available.

1: The Most Affordable Alcohol and Drug Rehab in Thailand

Serenity is the most affordable drug and alcohol rehabilitation center in Thailand or possibly the world. You can check our present fees. Just because we are more affordable then other centers in the world does not mean that we are less effective or lower quality, it just means that we are not in this purely for money. The program at Serenity is as good or better then many of the centers that we see on TV. Our goal at Serenity is to be a luxury rehab, with first class treatment and accommodations with the lowest fees that we can possibly manage, while still providing all the amenities and treatments that you find in the higher priced centers.

2. Smaller is Better in Addiction Treatment in Asia

At Serenity we believe when it comes to addiction treatment, smaller is better. In a large center it is easy to get lost in the crowd and there is nothing less personal then sitting in a group where there are 40+ people and the counsellor has so many patients that they constantly need to refer to their notes to remember who is who.  At Serenity we only accept 20 clients at a time and the center is more of a family environment. The relationships and bonds that are developed here last a lifetime. The clients and staff work together, eat together and the whole program is ment to be more like a family then a clinic.

3. Holistic, Evidence-Based Rehab

At Serenity we believe that a person is more then just their addiction. Just stopping drinking or using drugs is unlikely to be very effective, a holistic approach to treatment is needed where by you treat the mind, body and spirit. To do this we not only use a steps program, we also combine this with (CBT) cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfullness meditation, yoga and physical fitness programs. This not only treats the addiction but gives people tools they can use going into the future to stay clean and sober while also living a quality, happy life without the need for mood altering substances.

4. Drug and Alcohol Addiction Counsellors Who Have Been There

The counsellors at Serenity - Chiang Rai Rehab Center all have a past history of addiction. Why is this important? When talking to a counsellor about your problems they understand what you have been through, more importantly however they know how to stay drug and alcohol free after treatment, they do it everyday of their lives. Serenity Center is truly a center where it is addicts helping addicts. We take it one step farther though, our counsellor also have the education and experience in counselling to go along with their daily life in recovery.

5. Amazingly Beautiful Setting

Not only is Serenity - Chiang Rai Rehab Center incredible value for money it is also in an unbelievable location. Set on a large plot of land in a remote part of the jungle, the Serenity Center is an amazing place to recover from addiction. With sports field, pool table, media room, expansive manicured gardens, koi ponds and many secluded and private sitting areas where you can go to reflect or read a book, Serenity give you an amazing environment to heal.

6. World Class Medical Facilities

Where Serenity is not a medical facility, just a short drive from the center we have a world class private hospital to serve our clients needs. The Hospital is a fully equipped medical hospital operated by the largest chain of private hospitals in South East Asia. A huge percentage of the patients that use the Hospital Group for their medical needs travel to Thailand just for treatment with this group. At Serenity we take out clients health concerns seriously and only work with properly trained and qualified medical doctors.

7. Easy Travel Connections

Chiang Rai is in the north of Thailand, the center is in a remote and quiet area, the island itself is also a world class travel destination. The Chiang Rai International Airport has many direct flights from around Asia and approximately 10 flights a day from Bangkok. You can easily be at the airport during a comfortable day of travel and someone from Serenity will pick you up in a private car to take you to the center.

8. Semi-Private Rooms

Serenity - Chiang Rai Rehab Center believes in the power of a peer group as an extremely important component of residential rehabilitation, we also understand that some clients need their own space. If the lead therapist agrees for an additional fee we will sometimes allow a client to take a private room. Most clients stay in semi-private (2 Clients Sharing) rooms all with private baths.

9. Amazing Weekend Excursions

Alcohol or Drug Rehab in Thailand is hard work, people are not coming to us for a luxury vacation, they are coming to make major changes in their lives. Years of drug or alcohol abuse is not "cured" in a day and there is no quick fix, it is hard work. However no one can do therapy 8 hours a day, 7 days a week. On Sundays we take a break from treatment and will go on an excursion to see some of the sites of this lovely part of the world. These excursions can be a golf at some of the incredible Santiburi course, elephant trekking, bicycling through the local natural forest reserve, visiting world heritage site, etc. There are unlimited things to do in Chiang Rai and while in addiction treatment there is no reason not to take advantage of these opportunities.

10. An addiction rehab program, not a holiday

Unlike some programs in Thailand, Serenity focuses on addiction, we are not a holiday resort. The center is comfortable and we are respectful to our clients. At Serenity we only accept people that to want to get better and are willing to focus on their treatment. To facilitate this process clients need to turn in their phones and laptops and will have no access to communications for the first 2 weeks except in emergency situations. After two weeks clients get their phones and computers for 1 hour a day. This is done as a very important part of the therapeutic process so that you can focus on your addiction and not all of the other issues that you will be better prepared to deal with once you are clean and sober.
