Warning: Fake Rehab Listings & Review Websites for Thailand
If you come across a review websites when searching on Google for Rehabs in Thailand be sure they are ethical and genuine. Compare websites are a con; both globally and in Thailand. They are usually owned and operated by either commercial rehabs or those who wish to extort and exploit those of us with alcohol or drug problems as well as independent rehab operators. Hope does not partake is such deceptive practices as they demand large sums of money to be listed at the top or correctly.
Who are Operating Bogus Websites? “Best Rehabs Thailand”
8 Best Rehabs in Thailand or 12 best Rehabs, I have even seen 16 best Rehabs – most do not exist! Some of the Comparison websites are owned and operated by the commercial rehab listed at the top and others are money making scams that demand high fees from Rehabs to be listed at the top. We have received many such invitations to send in our own review and listing text as the guides do not actually know anything about the rehabs they list. Often, the deal is you pay them and write your own review.
You Won’t Find Us on Top of Fake Review Websites
Compare Thai rehab websites are set-up by commercial rehabs to direct people to their rehabs dishonestly. They are bogus listing website run by greedy or irresponsible individuals. They list themselves or rehabs who pay the high fee’s demanded as number one or near the top. Hope Rehab will not pay as doing so increases the cost to our clients and is dishonest.
Also, this practice of putting up negative information about wonderful rehabs like Hope Rehab, just to direct custom to themselves, is despicable. They present the websites to look official, yet they are not. Hope Rehab Thailand is officially licensed by the Thai Ministry of Health which many of these others are not despite claiming they are. Take note, none of these comparison websites that we are aware of have actually visited the rehabs they review. It is just about the money.
People Trafficking and Ethics “Referral Website”
It is both ethically wrong and illegal for a rehab to be participating in such practices. These practices could now come under ‘People -Trafficking’ laws which are a felony in the USA and other countries.
Criminal Tactics and Legal Issues being abused
Using banned tactics on Google is a way of cheating to falsely make your Rehab or listings website appear to rank higher than others. This serves a dual purpose, one being to give a false impression that you are considered a priority by search engines. Many of these commercial rehabs and websites practice this even though they will be punished eventually. They then simply publish a new website and do the same. Unfortunately search engines have fallen behind in preventing this strategy.
Blood Money – It’s All About the Money
The latest way some of these scammers make money is via “affiliate links” this means if you press a link and are directed to a commercial rehab website the bogus compare website gets a kick-back. Some of these fake compare or comparison websites about rehabs in Thailand are operated by the most expensive rehabs and include subtle put-downs on other low cost independent Rehabs. Their fake ranking systems includes mis-information about Hope Rehab Thailand because in truth we rank number one and that is not good for their pockets.
Digital Ambulance Chasers – Best Rehabs Thailand
Also known as Shysters, these are lawyers who uses unscrupulous ways to get business “an ambulance-chasing shyster” who wait for someone to get hurt or a disaster to happen and then offers to take the case for the money. We understand that there will always be those who wish to exploit any opportunity to make a buck however preying on vulnerable people is the point.

Glossy Magazine Style Rehab Websites
Most of these Rehabs in Thailand, listing guides use glossy magazine style website templates. And most of the commercial Rehabs in Thailand also seek to draw in potential clients using models and glossy stock photos or photoshopped images.

Whilst the Hope Rehab facility, grounds and local environment is by far the most stimulating and appropriate for addiction treatment we only use real photos to give you a realistic feel of our wonderful location. The most common comment when people arrive is that Hope far exceeds their expectation.
Luxury resorts can look tempting with models and photoshopped images – But are they real or even the answer for your addiction, Depression, Anxiety treatment or indeed your all-round general health? Self-improvement rarely comes from the easy way or shortcuts, its usually through challenge that help us grow.
