Hope Rehab Thailand Admissions Process?

Hope Rehab Thailand Admissions: To get started please use the Contact Form on this page and we will send you all the information you need including the cost and talk you through the admissions process. The next step is to arrange a telephone call and clinical assessment to ensure Hope is the right place for you or your family member. We will be in touch as soon as possible (please allow for different time zones). Hope is often very busy and demand for our service is high, so you may have a short wait, but it is worth it for the best treatment available. Download our pdf brochure here or go to our typical day page for more detailed information about what we offer.

How to Contact our International Admissions Team?

You are welcome to email or call our International Admission Manager [email protected] or Parice our Admissions Counsellor located in the UK. Natalie or Parice will help guide and support you through the process of getting to Hope, and also offer general advice for finding help for yourself or a loved one. We appreciate your patience and will be in touch as soon as possible, in the meantime take a good look at our website which will enhance your understanding of our treatment approach. Our admissions staff will advise you on visa requirements and flight bookings. Please note, you will be met and collected by our support staff at Bangkok airport BKK for the one hour drive to The Hope Centre.

How to Help a Loved-one with Addiction Issues?

Feel free to ask us for advice on how to support a loved one who suffers from addiction issues. Addiction comes in all shapes and sizes so whether it’s alcohol, drugs, gaming, or other maladaptive behaviours, Hope has the experience and expertise to help you or your family. We do understand the pain that addiction causes everyone involved, and we are ready to help.The first step to recovery is asking for help, this is the most important and often the most difficult. For more information on supporting a loved one read our Family Guide page and our Family Therapy page.

How Much is Treatment Going to Cost?

Hope Rehab Fees: 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 their families, so we keep our rates as low as we can without compromising quality and clinical safety. Once we arrange your booking, you then pay a $2000 deposit on PayPal to secure your place. After you arrive, you will then have several days to decide if you are comfortable before paying the remainder of the balance. Typically, Hope is less than a third of the cost of  rehabs in western countries, and the longer you stay, the bigger the savings. We have no hidden costs, and only a little spending money for personal effects is required during your stay. For more details about our rates and treatment options read our what’s included in the price page.

Does Hope Offer Any Discounts?

We want to make our program available to as many people as possible, and we know that paying for treatment can be a financial struggle. We try to help where possible by offering discounts (e.g. if a client wants to stay on after the first month we offer special discounts for long-term treatment options). Now that we have launched our new advanced treatment program, we offer a special price for those who sign up to the three-month program.

Public Funding for Treatment in Thailand

Unfortunately, we have no information regarding public funding, or charitable scholarships, based outside of Thailand that will pay for addiction treatment in Thailand for foreigners. However, we would encourage you to seek funding for treatment in your home country.

How about Hope’s Refund Policy?

Hope is the only Rehab in Thailand that will offer a refund if a client leaves prematurely. Read our fair but strict refund policy should your plans not work out — please read more here. You are welcome to email or call Natalie, our International Admission Manager for clarity [email protected] Rehabs must have strong boundaries regarding easy-refunds as clients could create chaos by leaving treatment every time they have a strong craving or are challenged in therapy. An example of a situation where we would offer a refund would be a client who pays for two months but leaves after one month. In this case, we would return the second month payment.

How Long Should I Stay at Hope Rehab?

Hope Rehab Thailand Program Options: Hope offers 30-day intensive treatment programs; that is to say we pack in a lot of activities, including therapy, fitness, meditation classes, and recovery education into each month. However, we usually recommend that you stay with us for longer to get 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. Contact us to learn more about our individual treatment plans and time frames.

Can I book One Month and Stay Longer if I Like it?

Yes, Hope Rehab has a minimum commitment requirement of 30 days so clients often start with a month but most decide to extend beyond this (which is something Hope is very proud of). The typical length of primary treatment programs are traditionally between 4 and 8 weeks depending on your motivation and ability to change. Many of our clients stay at Hope for 3 months which is an optimal period to embed new behaviours in place of old behaviours.

What are the Options After Completing Hope Rehab?

Once you have completed the two-month primary treatment at Hope Rehab, it is then possible to join our advanced rehab program, about half  our clients (15) go on to do this. The advanced program has its own 15 bed cosy facility by the sea. Here you build upon the foundation of basic treatment with options such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), advanced mindfulness/insight training, sober coaching, Recovery meetings, and SMART Recovery. Clients in advanced treatment also enjoy a bit more freedom, and get to act as senior-peers in the community. Some ex-clients may get to volunteer at Hope Rehab depending on availability and suitability. We have had volunteers who eventually joined the community as a member of staff.

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 or volunteer work. For futher details about the Hope Sober House cost etc 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 by the coast. In this day and age, long haul international flights are relatively inexpensive – especially to Bangkok. Research show that flights are generally cheaper on weekdays (Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesday and Thursdays). We recommend taking a direct flight if possible. Thai Air can be a good option and Middle East airlines and Asian airlines offer great deals also. Once you have booked the flights, forward the confirmation email to our admissions team, and they will organise your collection at Bangkok airport. Our staff will meet you at ‘Meeting point one’ in the arrivals hall and drive you straight to Hope.

What I Need to Do Before Coming?

Spending money: 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

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.

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.

Mobility issues: Hope is restricted as regards the physically impaired or disabled. The Hope facility is on a mountain side and we have an emphasis on offsite fitness activities.

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.


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 ADHD, dyslexia, self-medication, childhood struggles alongside the addiction. Doctors often refer to this as ‘concurrent disorders’ or ‘dual diagnosis’.

NOTE: Hope Rehab is not a substitute for a psychiatric clinic – Unfortunately, we cannot treat eating disorders/self-harm. See our Dual diagnosis page to understand what we can treat and what we cannot treat.

Is There an On-Site Psychiatrist?

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. This is an international standard medical center with a team of psychiatrists and other mental health professionals. Hope Rehab Thailand would not be an appropriate choice for anyone who requires 24-hour on-site monitoring by a psychiatrist.
