Drug addiction is no fun. 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’re going through is actually a common experience of addiction. At The Dawn, we understand how the trap of addiction works, and we’re here to help you get out of it. Our affordable, all-inclusive drug rehab in Thailand is completely confidential, and we’ll personally help you handle all the logistics from beginning to end so you can enjoy a smooth-sailing treatment process.

Why Attend Drug Rehabilitation in Thailand at The Dawn

When you’re at The Dawn, you’re family. Unlike other rehabs that might house upwards of 100 clients at a time, we keep our number of guests 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 attentive team will pay close attention to your treatment experience, monitoring your daily progress and making any adjustments needed along the way. Though you’ll 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’s custom-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 receiving drug addiction treatment, you’ll receive a medical assessment to determine whether you’re physically dependent on drugs that require detox. If so, you’ll be cared for by our fully licensed, detox-specialised medical team round-the-clock during your safe and effective drug detox process. While receiving treatment, you’ll stay in peaceful private accommodation, making your experience as comfortable as possible.

Our intensive Twin Pillars treatment model involves a combination of individual and group therapy 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 encourage 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, fitness therapy and dietary guidance. By developing these healthy practices, you’ll cultivate a personal self-care practice that will help you maintain your sobriety well after you complete your initial phase of drug addiction treatment.

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 offers treatment programmes for all types of drug addictions, including (but aren’t limited to):

Thailand Drug Rehab

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 may leave you exposed to the same influences and triggers that normally push you towards your addictions, inpatient treatment allows you to be completely removed from that environment. And while addiction is an isolating experience, in residential treatment you’ll be surrounded by supportive addiction experts, meaning you’ll always have direction and never have to feel lost or alone.
