Mei's Experience as a Graduate and Volunteer

Mei came to us as a client and ended up staying with us for almost 2 years as a volunteer and support worker until her journey took her off to new adventures.
Volunteering is an opportunity for some clients who finish a 16 week programme at Siam Rehab to stay on longer at a reduced fee.
Siam Rehab volunteers are clients who have done exceptionally well and it is believed by the therapeutic team that they will be a benefit to the new arrivals. They also get a chance to learn new skills and build on their own recovery adding additional clean time in a safe and secure environment.
