In the throes of a drug addiction your life feels out of control, your relationships are falling apart, your health is failing and your emotional state is a mess. You know you need help, but you may not be sure who to turn to, or you may be afraid of what others may think if they find out how serious your problem is.

You may feel all alone, but what you are going through is actually a common consequence of addiction for all. At The Dawn, we understand how the trap of addiction works, and we are here to help you overcome it. Our affordable, all-inclusive drug rehab in Thailand is completely confidential, and we will personally help you handle all the logistics from beginning to end so you can enjoy a smooth treatment process.

Why Attend Drug Rehabilitation in Thailand at The Dawn

When you are at The Dawn, you become our family. Unlike other rehabs that might house upwards of 100 clients at a time, we keep our numbers low so you can easily form relationships with others who are in treatment with you. Your therapy groups will be small, allowing you to build trust and familiarity with each other, and our caring team will pay close attention to your treatment experience, monitoring your daily progress and making needed adjustments along the way. Though you will be a world away from the environment that contributed to your addiction, you’ll feel right at home in our healthy, happy space.


How Our Drug Treatment in Thailand Works

We offer a completely personalised programme that is tailored to your needs, based on a thorough initial assessment. Our drug rehab programme consists of several main components: drug detox, drug addiction treatment and holistic wellness therapy.

Prior to our addiction therapy, you will receive a medical assessment to determine whether you are physically dependent on drugs that require detox. If so, you’ll be put on a drug detox programme by our fully licensed medical team and monitored round-the-clock to ensure your safety and comfort during the process.

Our intensive Twin Pillars treatment model involves a combination of individual and group therapy sessions using treatment methods like cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), mindfulness-based cognitive behavioural therapy (MCBT) and the 12 Steps for a well-rounded approach. Your therapist will oversee your whole treatment process and meet with you regularly to address the issues that underlie your addiction, taking into account your family history, experiences and lifestyle. You’ll attend daily experiential and process groups to work through your issues with others in the same boat and receive indispensable social support.

To support and enhance your conventional therapy regimen, you’ll also receive an array of wellness therapies aimed at bringing your mind, body and spirit back into balance. These include mindfulness meditation training, massage therapy and fitness therapy. By developing these healthy practices, you’ll cultivate a personal self-care practice that will help you maintain your recovery well after you complete primary treatment for drug addiction.

If you’re physically dependent on drug, your first step will likely be drug detox. Not everyone requires this phase of treatment — this will be determined during an initial assessment prior to starting your treatment plan. We have a comprehensive medical detox facility onsite, so you can complete all stages of treatment in one location and easily transition from detox to therapy. Our centre is fully equipped with modern medical technology, and our medical staff are available at all hours.
After detox you’ll move on to addiction treatment, where you’ll stay in comfortable, private accommodation while working through an intensive daily programme. In this stage, we’ll focus on the underlying causes of your addiction using our own Twin Pillars approach. This unique approach to treatment combines evidence-based and innovative therapy and a complementary wellness regimen to ensure our clients have the best possible chance to maintain long-term recovery, sobriety and generally healthy living.

Drug Addictions We Treat

Our drug rehab in Thailand has treated clients with all types of drug addictions, including but not limited to:

Effective Inpatient Treatment

Addiction treatment professionals agree that the most effective form of drug rehab is inpatient (also known as residential) treatment. This entails living onsite at a drug rehab facility while you work through an intensive daily programme. While outpatient treatment normally leaves you exposed to the triggers that push you to use, inpatient treatment allows you to be completely removed from that environment. And while addiction is an isolating experience, in residential treatment you will be surrounded by supportive addiction experts, meaning you will always have direction and never have to feel lost or unsafe.
