Canadian Owned & Operated Addiction Rehab  Centre

Siam Rehab is Asia’s Premier Addiction Treatment Program

Siam Rehab was known as Serenity Rehab Thailand from 2014 to mid-2018. Due to increasing confusion with the many rehabs in various countries which have the name Serenity, we now operate under the name Siam Rehab.

Siam Rehab’s Milestones

  • May 2014 – Founded on Koh Samui

    Siam Rehab is originally founded on Koh Samui island, Thailand on May 5th, 2014. While Samui is undeniably beautiful and offers a range of excursion options, we noticed that many of our clients struggled in being surrounded by such a party scene, especially so early in recovery. We also found that our costs were too high for many who could not afford, but needed and wanted to participate in our addiction treatment programs.

  • January 2016 – Move to Chiang Rai

    Learning from our experience in Samui, we decided to move to a new location. We remained in Thailand due to cost advantages and deep connection to the country. We discovered an ideal location in Chiang Rai, Northern Thailand. Unlike the bustling tourist hub of Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai aligns better with our mission. It offers a secure, serene environment conducive to our clients’ recovery journey, away from party scenes but still conveniently accessible from international airports and in close proximity to excellent medical care. From here, we can also make our treatment financially accessible to those who needs it.

  • January 2016 – Appointed Medical Director

    Shortly after the move to Chiang Rai we began working with Dr. (Mark) Nattapatt Sukkhosawat, MD, who is also our Medical Director. Dr. Mark has been practicing medicine for 19 years. He graduated from the University of Chiang Mai Medical School, trained at Suan Prung Psychiatric Hospital, specialising in psychiatry and addiction medicine. Regularly on site at Serenity Rehab, Dr. Mark oversees all medical needs of our clients, as well as outpatient detox from his clinic in town, or at nearby Kasemrad Sriburin Hospital. Kasemrad Sriburin is an excellent private, full-service hospital which offers emergency, psychiatric, detoxification, and other speciality services.

  • August 2018 – Name Changed to Siam Rehab

    In mid-2018, it became evident that the name “Serenity” was causing confusion, as there were numerous unrelated Serenity Rehabs across different countries. Despite Serenity’s significance, a unique name was required for clarity. In the early 2010s, Tim Armstrong, a seasoned Australian therapist, founded Siam Rehab in Nakhon Sawan, a respected addiction treatment center. Over time, the facility closed, and the name Siam Rehab fell into disuse. After company-wide brainstorming and name searching, we chose to revive the name Siam Rehab for our treatment facility. Our program and team remained unchanged.

  • November 2018 – Moved to new Facilities in Chiang Rai

    In November 2018, Siam Rehab moved into new and improved facilities in Chiang Rai, surrounded by beautiful jungle gardens and equipped with a fully-fledged gym. The move reaffirmed our dedication to helping individuals on their path to recovery, while maintaining cost-effectiveness and accessibility for everyone in need of our program.

Chiang Rai is undeniably the most suitable location for an addiction treatment centre in Thailand. This city manages to strike the perfect balance between offering modern amenities and maintaining a serene environment conducive to healing. The city’s size allows it to house top-tier medical facilities and an international airport, providing the necessary infrastructure for a world-class treatment centre.

What sets Chiang Rai apart, however, is its seclusion from the typical party-centric atmosphere associated with certain tourist hotspots in Thailand. In Chiang Rai, clients can fully immerse themselves in recovery, free from triggers and distractions. It is a place where tranquility and recovery go hand in hand, making it the perfect location for Siam Rehab.

Chiang Rai offers a unique advantage as a location for addiction rehab, primarily because it lacks the heavy tourism and prevalent substance use found in areas such as Bangkok, Phuket, Samui, and Pattaya. It offers a change of scene, crucial for those in early recovery.

Our previous location on the island of Samui posed challenges, as many clients struggled with the pervasive party atmosphere. Moving to Chiang Rai allowed us to escape that environment, and the lower cost of living here enabled us to reduce our fees, making our high-quality treatment program more accessible to those in need.

Getting to Chiang Rai

Chiang Rai International Airport is conveniently just an 80-minute flight from Bangkok (BKK), with multiple daily flights providing easy connections.
If you prefer, Siam Rehab can arrange for one of our support staff to meet you at the Bangkok airport, assist with your connecting flight, and provide a taxi service from Chiang Rai airport to our facility.(fees apply)

This service can be particularly beneficial for those who value added convenience or wish to alleviate any travel-related stress. Many of our clients choose to make their own flight arrangements to Chiang Rai, but rest assured, we’re here to help whenever needed to ensure a smooth and worry-free journey to Siam Rehab.
