Located in the countryside outside Chiang Rai, Serenity Rehab Thailand provides detox and inpatient substance abuse treatment to men and women 18 years and older. Chaing Rai is about three hours north of the large city of Chaing Mai in northern Thailand, in the mountainous province of the same name. As the name suggests, Serenity specializes in providing a safe, tranquil space for recovery and a blend of holistic and evidence-based treatment.
Accommodations and Food
Serenity Rehab Thailand houses a maximum of 20 clients in individual rooms that include king beds, sitting areas and bathrooms. The resort-like facility has indoor and outdoor dining rooms, a smoking area and group rooms. There are also secluded sitting areas for reading and reflection.
All meals are prepared by on-site chefs, Toi and Op, and are included in the price of stay. Plenty of dietary options, from traditional Thai food to more western-style cuisine, are available for each meal. All food is made with locally sourced produce and seafood and dietary requirements are accommodated. Unlimited coffee, tea and mineral water are also available.
Treatment and Staff
Serenity offers a standard 28-day primary care program, with an option to move into the secondary phase for an additional four to eight weeks at the same residential location. If detox is necessary, the process can take place on-site and is monitored 24 hours a day by medical staff. After completing detox, clients transition into residential treatment.
Residents have at least three individual sessions a week with their assigned counselor and take part in group therapy three times a day. The daily routine also features a therapeutic massage, guided meditation and free time in the afternoons to exercise. Clients have access to a gym and pool twice a week and on-site yoga classes. Therapy is CBT-based and incorporates elements of the therapeutic community and an introduction to the 12 steps. Support for co-occurring disorders is available in the form of specialized groups and medication management. At least three times a week, clients are transported to off-site AA/NA meetings in the evenings.
Serenity employs a number of English-speaking licensed counselors and psychiatrists. Other team members include chefs, yoga instructors and a meditation and hypnotherapy practitioner.
Sundays are reserved for adventurous excursions, like jungle trekking, river rafting, rock climbing and zip lining. Off-site meetings and tours often include lunches and dinners out.
Serenity Rehab’s tertiary program continues at a co-ed sober living community, which is open to those who have completed a minimum of eight weeks of primary and secondary treatment. This can last up to six months and includes outpatient care and structured living.
Serenity Rehab Thailand is a very affordable option for residential treatment in an exotic location. The 30-day cost includes all meals, therapeutic treatments and outings. This is a great choice for those who want to focus on recovery in a relaxing location.
