Online Counselling by Hope Counsellors
While waiting to get to Hope Rehab in Thailand, many clients have requested online support. So, if you require immediate help, we suggest online counselling by one of the therapeutic team. Some of us do offer independent online professional counselling and coaching. Don’t be afraid the technology is simple, and the counsellors will guide you all the way. If you have any questions about how online counselling works, don’t hesitate to get in touch. You will look forward and enjoy the sessions and build a relationship with your counsellor before you get to Hope. Go to our online Services page here…
The good news is Hope Rehab Thailand is preparing to accept international clients again soon. Thailand is prioritizing medical tourism visitors for licensed facilities like Hope. The first step is to get in touch, and we will start your medical visa application.
How much is Treatment going to cost?
To request treatment rates please fill in the Contact Form on this page. The cost of treatment is calculated according to length of stay. We understand cost is a significant factor for our clients and families, so we keep our rates as low as we can without compromising quality and clinical safety. Once we arrange your booking you pay a $2000 deposit to secure your place. After you arrive you will then have three days to decide if you are comfortable before paying the balance. Typically, Hope costs less than a third of the cost of rehabs in western countries. We have no hidden costs, only a little spending money for personal effects. For more details about our rates and treatment options read our what’s included page.
Does Hope offer Any discounts?
Yes we are currently offering all-inclusive 4-week, 6-week and 8-week discounted packages for 2020. This is to encourage the longest possible commitment for your success in recovery. In addition, we have recently built new rooms in our advanced facility so will offer special rates for longer term 3-month programs. Let us know if no detox or medication supervision is required as we may be able to reduce the cost further.
No Public funding for Treatment in Thailand
Unfortunately, we have no information regarding public funding, or charitable scholarships that will pay for addiction treatment in Thailand for foreigners. However, we would encourage you to seek funding for treatment in your home country.
Hope’s Refund policy?
Hope has a clear Refund policy that we suggest you read via the link below. The booking deposit/Fee is non-refundable to cover our costs (except cancelation due to current global health issues). Rehabs must have strong boundaries regarding easy-refunds as clients could create chaos by leaving treatment every time they have a strong craving. Read our fair but strict refund policy here
How long should I stay at Hope Rehab?
Hope offers 30-day intensive treatment programs as well as long-stay options; that is to say we pack a lot of activities into each month. We recommend that you stay as long as possible for the best chance of long-term recovery. Some drugs, such as opiates and benzo’s, require a minimum 2-month commitment due to a longer Detox period. This is why Hope has developed an Advanced Program. Addiction isn’t conquered overnight. For most, it took time to develop the habits and behaviours that feed addiction, so it stands to reason that it will take time to change. A simple detox or quick fix is a “flight to health” and rarely achieves lasting results.
Can I book one month and stay longer if I like it?
Yes, Hope Rehab has a minimum commitment requirement of 30 days so most clients start with a month but many decide to stay longer. The typical length of primary treatment programs are traditionally between 4 and 8 weeks depending on your motivation. Many of our clients stay at Hope for 3 months which is an optimal period to embed new behaviours in place of old behaviours. Read more about treatment timeframes here
What are the Options after completing the Hope program?
Once you have completed the two-month primary treatment at Hope Rehab, it is then possible to join our advanced rehab program. The advanced program has its own 15 bed cosy facility by the sea opposite the main centre. Here you build upon the foundation of basic treatment. Some ex-clients may get to volunteer at Hope Rehab depending on availability and suitability.
What about Longer-term Sober House options in Thailand
If you wish to remain in Thailand long-term, there is also the option of joining our 10 bed Third-stage Sober house in Bang Saray not far away from our main facility. This is where you can begin to experience a more normal life while still having the full support of a recovery community. Clients in third-stage sober-house treatment can choose options such as doing a TEFL course to teach English or volunteer work. email [email protected]
Getting to Hope Rehab – Flights
After you have decided to join the Hope program, and you have paid the deposit to secure your place, it is time to arrange your flight. Fly to Bangkok’s international airport ‘Suvarnabhumi’ airport code BKK, and we will meet you in the arrivals hall. Hope Rehab is situated one hour from Bangkok airport on the coast. Long haul international flights are reasonably priced today, especially to Bangkok. Research shows flights are cheaper on weekdays. We recommend taking a direct flight if possible. Once you have booked the flights, forward the confirmation email to our admissions team. Our staff will meet you at ‘Meeting point one’ in the arrivals hall and drive you straight to Hope.
What do I need to do before coming?
Our program is all inclusive and we do not have any hidden costs, however, you will need a little spending money (a few dollars per week for personal effects, cigarettes and maybe shopping on a local market). Pocket money can be transferred via Hope’s account as we do not recommend bringing significant amounts of cash with you.
Thailands Climate and Recommended Clothing
Thailand is a country that can be visited all year round, particularly in our area. We have the most number of sunny and dry days with the occasional refreshing tropical shower that keeps a healthy balance. So bring your swimwear and a personal beach towel for weekend Island trips.
Clients general Healthcare & Insurance
Thailand is a safe country to visit and has wonderful cheap local healthcare. Our location ‘Sriracha’ is unaffected by current global health scares and an ideal safe secluded alternative place to be until it calms down. Most clients take out tourist & travel health insurance which is inexpensive and wise should you get ill or have an accident while in Thailand (Hope Rehab does not cover these eventualities) Otherwise you will need to bring all medications that you are prescribed, fitness and gym clothing, swim wear and beach towel, and light clothing for a hot climate. Go to our What to Bring page this will help you plan your trip. All rooms and accommodation are designed for single occupancy with shower and internet access. Hope is restricted as regards the physically impaired, disabled and with Mobility issues. The facility is on a mountain side and we have an emphasis on offsite fitness activities.
Do I need a Visa for Thailand?
Most visitors to Thailand get a 30 day visa-on-arrival at the immigration desk in the airport. This can be automatically extended for another 30 days at our local immigration office. Thereafter clients take a drive to the land boarder to get a new 30 day visa-on-arrival that can also be extended.

Hope has been extremely fortunate that the author, Gabrielle Harris wrote this eye-opening book about her experience’s observing Hope Rehab’s program, including interviewing the staff & clients. A member of her family completed treatment at Hope, so she has very personal reasons for being passionate about the work we do. On our library page you will find Hope’s most pressures recourses, all developed by our team. We have decided to give these Workbooks away to anyone who needs them, although they are designed to be used with the help of professionals. follow this link

Why Choose Residential Rehab for Alcohol Issues?
Residential Rehab is proven to be the best way to manage alcohol or drug problems. Whether you want to stop drinking, or stop anything, whether you identify as an addict or not, or you are experiencing difficulty’s coping with issues such as stress, depression and anxiety. Residential Rehab gives you the breathing space and support needed to heal and to learn the skills necessary to remain sober. In-patient Detox is the safest way to stop using alcohol while avoiding being overwhelmed with triggers and cravings while at your most vulnerable. Alcohol affects the central nervous system and acts as a depressant like many sedative medications. It releases Endorphins in the brain with an opiate like effect, triggering a pain response and a euphoric buzz. So when detoxing surges of anxiety and emotional turbulence are common, this is why residential treatment is preferable to home detox.
What to Expect from Hope Rehab’s Alcohol Treatment Program
Welcome to Hope Rehab’s Alcohol Addiction program in Thailand. Many clients who attend Hope’s program come due to their alcohol or drinking issues. The clients come from all over the world and from all age groups. Hope offers a safe and comfortable environment to address this issue and overcome the challenges associated with alcoholism. Recognising and accepting you have an alcohol problem is the first step to the solution, so well done and we hope this website about alcohol rehab treatment in Thailand will help.
More about Hope Rehab Alcohol Treatment options?
Alcoholism, or alcohol addiction and alcohol-use-disorder, are all terms used by Doctors, whether binge-drinking or alcohol dependence. Alcohol problems can sneak up on you and can develop progressively in response to difficult life events. The most successful program known to treat all levels of alcohol addiction is the holistic approach incorporating many elements and therapies which you will find listed on our program page. One tip to ensure alcoholism and alcohol addiction treatment is successful is to put all worries about the future aside, especially about whether or not you can drink ever again, as it gets in the way of treatment. Major decisions like these can be dealt with later. Read more!
What to Expect from Hope Rehab’s Drug Addiction Treatment Program
Welcome to Hope Rehabs Drug addiction program. At Hope we have created the optimal program to address all the various elements of this destructive condition, giving you the best chance for recovery. You know you are addicted when you cannot stop doing something that is hurting you. For an addict using drugs is like “going back to the problem for the solution” again and again. Destructive and unhealthy behaviours of drug addiction are symptoms of the condition not the disease itself. The state of addiction is not the same as the state of intoxication or even physical dependency from self-medicating. Addiction is a disease of compulsion and reward and best treated as such. The healing process starts at the point of accepting this and that serious help is required.
More about Hope Rehab Addiction Treatment Options
When searching for a Rehab for drug addiction, it is important to understand that rehabs differ in what they are capable of offering you. It is also important when considering any program that you figure out if the right support is available. Coming to Thailand is surprisingly practical, it is relatively easy to arrange with air travel cost at an all time low, getting to Bangkok is very cheap. Also, you are likely to get a bed when you need it. Thailand is the obvious choice for an international rehab because of our high-quality rehab program available at an affordable price. Read more!
Does Hope Rehab Provide Medicated Detox?
Yes, we provide medication assisted alcohol detox and opiate replacement & reduction detox, as well as detox for many other substances. In addition Hope Rehab has both, female and male nursing staff. Senior team member Paul Garrigan is a registered nurse specializing in addiction working in partnership with our local private Hospital who provide all medical services which is only a few minutes away from Hope’s facility. We keep you comfortable and safe with 24/7 care and support while achieving recovery. The Hope facility is staffed 24 hours a day. More medical and detox information can be obtained during your telephone assessment before enrolling in the program.
Is Hope Rehab a Safe Environment for People Quitting an Addiction?
The safety and well-being of clients is our top priority. New arrivals who are at risk of serious withdrawal symptoms are closely monitored in our detox unit located in the main house. There is a high-quality hospital opposite just 5 minutes away by car in case of emergency. We work in partnership with the medical team at Samitivej Hospital to ensure that withdrawal symptoms are managed so that clients are not only kept safe but also as comfortable as possible.
Mobility issues: Hope is restricted as regards the physically impaired, disabled or acute physical health issues that make moving around difficult. The Hope facility is located on a mountain side and we focus a lot on fitness activities and weekend off-site excusions.
Does Hope Rehab Offer Detox Only?
At Hope we do not offer a Detox only service because Just a detox, also known as the acute phase of treatment, is unlikely to be a lasting answer for anyone, in fact it can often create more harm than good. It can lead to disappointment, denial and physical punishment. Medical Detox is helpful, but it needs to be combined with talk therapy and lifestyle change. Also, humans become tolerant to all drugs/medication so a sustainable long-term solution must be found. Read more!
Can Hope Rehab Thailand Help with Anxiety or Depression?
Most of the clients who attend Hope Rehab suffer from depression and/or anxiety. Both are common experiences for most human beings at some point in their lives. Anxiety and stress are common feelings shared by addicts and alcoholics. Stress can suck all the joy out of living. It creates a feeling of apprehension and it can lead to depression, hopelessness, and despair. Some of us turned to alcohol or drugs in an attempt to deal with this discomfort, but this only made things worse. At Hope, we use the combined powers of our skilled counsellors and the healing therapeutic community as well as the tools available through Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and our mindfulness program to help individuals manage this more effectively.
Hope Rehab Mental Health Treatment?
At Hope we practice a holistic approach. That means we look at the whole person and that often also includes Depression, Anxiety issues, Trauma, PTSD, ADHD, dyslexia, self-medication, childhood struggles alongside the addiction. Doctors often refer to this as ‘concurrent disorders’ or ‘dual diagnosis’.
Is There Psychiatric support?
We do not have a Psychiatrist onsite at Hope and we are not a substitute for a Psychiatric clinic. However psychiatric support is offered in partnership with Samitivej Hospital opposite the rehab (mainly used for medication prescriptions) which is just 5 minutes away by car. Hope Rehab Thailand would not be an appropriate choice for anyone who requires 24-hour on-site monitoring by a psychiatrist. To understand what we can treat and what we cannot treat and why, see our Dual diagnosis page
