The Dawn Rehab Thailand Costs Only 2/3rd of the Price of Western Facilities

People struggling with mental illnesses or addictions often require professional help and support. The cost of rehab in Australiaม USA or the UK can be prohibitively expensive, with a full course of treatment costing upwards of $60,000. Thailand rehabs cost less to operate than services in Western countries due to the lower cost of living in South East Asia. This allows The Dawn to employ top-calibre Western clinicians, who are happy to live in Thailand at the same standard they did back home, ensuring our clients the same high quality care as premium facilities in the West. Coming to Thailand for treatment also gives the added benefit of an authentic cultural experience in a beautiful tropical setting, letting clients recover nicely at a fraction of the price.

At The Dawn drug and alcohol rehab Thailand, we offer a truly holistic treatment experience. Our calming sanctuary on the banks of the Ping River in rural Chiang Mai offers the most effective Western therapeutic techniques, accompanied by the healing benefits of traditional Asian practices. And literally being a world away from the things and situations that contribute to your condition, you can completely focus on yourself – leading to a deep and lasting transformation in your health and wellbeing.

Our rehab Thailand costs are competitive with any of the top rehab centres in Thailand, and are far lower than the standard rates in comparable international rehabs abroad in many other countries. We pride ourselves on being absolutely transparent about what our costs cover.

What is Included in The Dawn Rehab Prices?

As with any type of service or facility, The Dawn Rehab has to cover a range of different day-to-day costs and expenses. Naturally, this also reflects in the prices we charge our clients. Fortunately, since the cost of living is low in Southeast Asia, we can offer these services at affordable rates and make rehabilitation an option for a wider range of people.

The Dawn Rehab prices are all-inclusive and encompass personal treatment, living quarters, cuisine, resort-style facilities and extra-curricular offsite activities. Every one of these services plays an important role in contributing to making your stay a truly transformative yet pleasant experience. See some rehab Thailand reviews here. 

Below, we’ll detail some of the ways that you benefit from your admission fee. We’ll also share some ways that these items and services can help your recovery.


The majority of our alcohol rehabs in Thailand cost go to staff salaries. Our English-speaking staff consist of a highly-experienced, Western-trained Clinical team. They are supported by a friendly and caring Community Support Team and a certified Nursing team who are onsite around-the-clock. On the wellness side – you will work with our fitness trainers, meditation and yoga coach as well as our masseurs.

As you can imagine, each of these professional and highly trained staff members requires a salary. We pride ourselves on hiring only the best-trained individuals in each field and paying them a salary worthy of their abilities.


Your treatment is the most important part of your stay and includes many different treatment options that can be tailored to meet your specific needs. Two individual therapy sessions per week with a trained specialist will help you discover and treat any unresolved trauma, which is a hidden cause of many addictions and mental illnesses. Group therapy is also an invaluable component of recovery, as it allows you to connect meaningfully with other clients in a safe and supportive setting.

All of your different treatment options are customized specifically to meet your individual needs. Naturally, there are some expenses involved in this kind of approach, which is part of where your fee will go.


Our holistic approach to treatment enhances the well-being of each client’s mental, spiritual, and physical state by integrating refined wellness therapies into the programme. 

Mindfulness and meditation play a large role in psychological recovery at The Dawn, while art therapy helps clients channel and express their feelings productively. To promote physical well-being, we provide individual and group fitness training, yoga classes and two complimentary massages per week.

Even services like these, which seek to help the mind and body heal, have fees related to them. From paying the experts who offer the classes to acquiring yoga mats and other pieces of equipment, you can rest assured that a portion of your treatment costs will go towards holistic therapy.


Even after primary therapy has been completed, our services and support continue. We offer weekly online aftercare group counselling, accessible at convenient times for those residing in the US, UK, Australia and Asia. These sessions are especially vital during early recovery – not only do they help you navigate the challenges of settling back into your daily life, but they also ensure that the gains you made during treatment are deep and lasting. 

While many rehab centres consider their burden of care discharged once the patient leaves the facility, The Dawn Rehab takes a different approach. We believe that the road to recovery is a long one, and we should provide whatever assistance we can to ensure that our clients don’t get lost along the way. This continued care is part of what you pay for when you book in. This approach is also a reason why we’re one of the best addiction rehabs overseas.


Each of The Dawn’s single occupancy rooms include everything you need to have a comfortable and relaxing stay. Every room has:

  • A king-size bed
  • Air conditioning unit
  • A flat screen LCD TV
  • English-language satellite channels
  • Wi-Fi
  • Attached bathroom with toiletries (soap, shampoo, hair conditioner)
  • A wardrobe
  • Daily laundry service and room cleaning
  • Notebooks, pens, a work desk and a chair
  • An outdoor balcony, where you can relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery of the riverside

As with going on holiday or taking other trips, accommodation involves payment. However, considering the number of services and items involved in this fee, it is well worth the money spent.

Unlike some other facilities, we won’t expect you to be content with a tiny or shared room. We ensure that you have access to plenty of different areas and activities.


Thailand is world-renowned for its delicious and savoury cuisine. Each of our clients is provided with three meals per day. These include Thai and Western options, with vegetarian selections available, and a salad bar. Our coffee and tea facilities are accessible at all times.

Considering how much people spend on their daily food budget, it’s understandable that a portion of your service fee will go towards food. We provide only the best that our region has to offer, with an array of options, so you can eat well without sacrificing your preferences.


We pick you up and drop you off at the airport. Clients in the addiction programme are driven to Alcoholics Anonymous / Narcotics Anonymous meetings held in town weekly. Every Sunday, we take our clients on a day trip to enjoy the many tourist attractions that Chiang Mai has to offer. If a client is referred outside by our in-house medical team or needs to get an extension on their visa, they will be escorted by our staff in our vehicle.

Transportation is often a costly affair, even if you have your own vehicle. From fuel to maintenance and repairs, the list of required expenses is extensive. When you stay at The Dawn Rehab in Thailand, you can rest easy knowing that all your vital transportation needs are taken care of, and the costs are included in your treatment fees.


Our excursions and activities include elephant sanctuaries, jungle treks, zip lines, temple tours and kayaking. Entrance fees, lunch, and transport costs are all included in your treatment fees.

If you were to visit this type of activity or location as a tourist, you might pay a small fortune. However, as a guest at The Dawn Rehab, all your fees are included in the treatment fees. This is because we believe in the importance of holistic treatment and have special arrangements with many regional centres.


Our facilities have been carefully designed to offer a fine balance between recovery and wellness. Our clients enjoy a beautiful swimming pool with sunbathing beds, a traditional Thai-style massage studio, a yoga and meditation room, a gym, a ping pong and pool table zone– and, finally, an alfresco dining area, where you can look out over the Ping River.

This plethora of top-of-the-range facilities is one of the things you pay for with your treatment fee. We like to ensure that our patients are mentally and physically occupied. Not only does this give them something to focus on, but it helps improve the efficiency of the healing process.


Why Do Thai Rehab Centres Cost So Much Less?

Thai rehab centres can afford to charge considerably less than those based in the West. There are several reasons for this, but primarily this is because the cost of living is so much less in this part of Asia. 

Since food and rent prices are so much lower, the average salary is lower as well. This means that Thai rehab centres can afford to offer you accommodation, meals, and top-quality staff at a small percentage of what Western rehab centres would charge.

Do Lower Prices Indicate Lower-Quality Care?

Naturally not! The Dawn Rehab offers only the best in rehabilitation services. We take great care in selecting the best trainers, medical personnel, and other staff. This means that you get only the best quality care. As an award-winning rehab centre with Western-trained professionals, The Dawn can help you rest assured that you’re in the best hands, but at an affordable price. 

This is all thanks to the low cost of living in Thailand, allowing us to provide the same service for less. It isn’t a reflection of the quality of care.

How Much Does Rehab Cost In Thailand?

On average, rehabilitation costs in Thailand range from $10,000-15,000. This is one of the many advantages of going to rehab overseas. Considering that many rehab centres in the UK and Australia have a starting price of around $60,000 for a 28-day stay, that makes Thai rehabs worthwhile for most people. Even considering that you need to pay for plane tickets both to and from Thailand, your treatment, accommodation, activities, and stay will be considerably less expensive than equivalent care would be in most other countries.

We also recommend that you plan for some extra expenses, which may include travel medical insurance, shopping, souvenirs, and international phone calls. As mentioned above, we offer two complimentary massages per week as part of your treatment plan – but you may want to indulge and get another for the reasonable price of 400 THB for a Thai massage, or 500 THB for an oil massage.

What isn’t Included in The Dawn Rehab Pricing?

Naturally, you will have to cover your flights to Thailand and back to your home country, visa extension fees, and any transport not related to your stay at The Dawn. We also do not cover medication, TMS therapy, and offsite medical purchases and services.

We also recommend that you plan for some extra expenses, which may include travel medical insurance, shopping, souvenirs, and international phone calls. As mentioned above, we offer one complimentary massage per week as part of your treatment plan – but if you would like to book an extra 90 minute session, you can for the reasonable price of THB800 for a Thai massage, or THB1000 for an oil massage.
