After a very successful 3 year career there helping to build a 5 star reputation within the treatment industry, they decided to branch out and create a new facility on coast, and so it was that Hope Rehab was conceived.
Hope also provides training services to the domestic Govenment Thai Rehab system.

Hope is an approved international treatment centre by all the relevant governing bodies, and all our therapists are fully trained and licensed.

Hope Rehab Training Days
The majority of our clients at Hope Rehab come from international destinations, but our team also works closely with the Thai Ministry of Public Health (กระทรวงสาธารณสุข) to improve the quality of addiction treatment locally. This is something we feel passionate about, and it is our way of giving something back to the wonderful country we now call home.
How Hope Rehab Works with the Local Community
It is our vision that all citizens of Thailand will be able to access quality addiction treatment and aftercare. We know there are some local rehabs doing great work, but there is a serious lack when it comes to aftercare. This is why we are now working with our colleagues in the Thai Ministry of Public Health to improve the situation. One way we do this is by sharing our knowledge and experience with local doctors, nurses, and therapists.
The easiest way for our team to get the message out is through our training days. This is where we provides seminars and workshops for local health professionals and other interested parties. We travel to various cities and towns in Thailand to give these presentations, and they have been very well received. At Hope Rehab we are committed to evidence-based approaches to recovery, and out Thai colleagues are hungry for any tools that will help their clients.

Another way we are getting involved in the local community is by encouraging the growth of recovery meetings. This is something we feel needs to be a key component of an effective aftercare program. There are AA/NA meetings in the main tourist areas in Thailand, but this type of fellowship is absent from most of the country. Our team offers advice on setting up these groups, and we provide training to health professional on how to encourage the spread of these meetings.
