What Makes Hope Rehab So Special

If you are looking for a rehab for yourself or a loved one, then Read through this list and get an idea of what Hope offers. We guarantee no other rehab can match what we offer for the cost. We are confident you won’t get the same level of treatment anywhere else in the world.

Hope Rehab Team

The Team

50 qualified staff members in our team ensure you are given the support you need and kept comfortable during your stay. A ratio of 2 staff to every client is unmatched anywhere in the world

The Facility

Our main site is a 22-bed, 5 acre grand facility surrounded by stone walls and located on a mountain side overlooking the Gulf of Siam with sea views and surrounded by jungle rain forest.

Advanced Program

We have a separate very cosy new 14-bed advanced treatment facility located nearby and right beside the sea for clients in second and third months, offering special privileges and activities.

Swimming Pool

We have an on-site swimming pool where clients can swim, have fun, relax, or just do a bit of sunbathing. (Update -we are also currently building a fabulous new swimming pool.)

Stay Connected

Our facility has good Wi-Fi access throughout, and clients are also allowed to bring phones, obviously carefully supervised so as not to disrupt treatment.

Intern Training

We have 10 places for psychology and therapy interns coming from universities in different parts of the world who come to learn and support our clients.

On weekends, we take clients (depending on weather) to one of the nearby islands (Koh Si Chang) where they can explore, enjoy some beach activities, or just relax in the sun. It is just a forty-minute boat ride away and a great way to unwind after a busy week of class work.

Client's Review - Hope Rehab Testimonial

The nearby town of Sri Racha offers a wonderful blend of modern and traditional Thai urban life. This is where we take clients so they can purchase necessities along with some well-deserved treats. At the centre of the town is a large department store.

Success Rate

Our success rate is higher than most rehabs. The general completion rate for Hope primary program is 97.5% and 80% of clients apply to stay longer than a month. We take this as a strong endorsement of our work.

Intensive Program

Addiction isn’t conquered overnight, but our 30-day intensive program offers what we believe to be the best chance of success. We make the most of of your time by packing a lot of activities into each day.

Thai Culture

Experience Living in Thailand and get to enjoy the local culture, natural beauty, the people, and wonderful quirkiness of Thailand. There is plenty of serious work to do, but you are also going to have time to explore Sri Racha.

Kick Boxing

Muay Thai is the national sport of Thailand, and clients get the opportunity to train in this renowned martial art with our skilled trainer Khru Yut (all skill levels welcome).

Volunteering

Ex-clients with the right skills and determination may be given the opportunity to come work with us as a volunteer – this can sometimes lead to something more permanent.

Motivated Clients

Our in-depth admissions process is designed to find the clients who will fit in well with our community and be able to gain the most from what we offer.

We realize that coming to rehab requires a significant financial sacrifice and we do not take that lightly, however once you consider how much we have to offer, we hope you can see it is a great opportunity and investment. We guarantee all financial resources are used wisely.

Community Spirit

Hope Rehab is not owned by a large corporation. We are a small community of like-minded individuals who are passionate about helping people recover from addiction.

Trustworthy

Our community is committed to honesty and openness. This means we avoid false promises or misleading advertisements. There are also no hidden costs in joining the program.

Visa Extensions

If you need to extend your Thai tourist visa during your stay with us, we will support and guide you through this process (including escorted immigration and border runs if necessary) .

Aftercare

Leaving rehab is when the work really begins. We are pleased to maintain close personal contact with each client and you will join out online aftercare group.

Teaching English

Opportunities for our Sober house clients to teach English are available in Thailand and can be arranged with a local college and summer camp schools in the nearby city.

TEFL Certificate

Sober house clients have the option to complete TEFL training that enables them to teach English locally. This has proven highly popular opportunity with clients.

A beautiful place for beautiful people! If you’re serious about restarting your life, Hope is where you want to be.

Long-haul flights have never been so cheap, and this makes Hope a realistic option for more people. we suggest taking a direct flight to Bangkok International Airport (Suvarnabhumi BKK).

Exercise Park

Every Friday afternoon, clients get to visit our local exercise park here in Sri Racha. Here you get to walk, run, or engage in other activities with the locals.

Thai Massage

Massage sessions twice per week. As well as being fantastic for relaxation, this is also an effective therapy that eases any lingering withdrawal symptoms.

Hope Food

We are lucky to live in a part of the world where fresh, nutritious ingredients are abundant. Our menu includes salad, veggie, meats, fish and much more. Food that is healthy and tasty.

Our Clients

Addiction does not discriminate between nationality, race, religion, culture, or social class. Our clients come from all around the world and from every walk of life, so it’s a great opportunity to come together and learn from each other and much more than addiction.

Your Loved Ones

Many clients are helped by their families to get to Hope. We are happy to support and help families understand addiction and the treatment process. We have a family feedback program and will coach you on how to support your loved one returning home.

Long Term

The psychological process of recovery and change can require longer-term treatment, and the cost of this is going to be an important factor for most people. We charge far less for long-term treatment than other facilities that are offering inferior programs at much more cost.

The real work begins once clients return home so aftercare is crucial. We provide weekly online meetings, and there is also phone support to ensure a smooth transition. There will also be plenty of time to plan for this move with your recovery coach.

Our 35-page aftercare book provides advice and tips so clients can hit the ground running once they return home. It includes suggestions on staying motivated and avoiding relapse triggers.

Personal Therapist

Hope provides an unusually high level of one-on-one attention to give you the highest chance of recovery and success.

Group on the Beach

Advanced Program

Clients enter our advanced program after 6 to 8 weeks. This is because returning home from a 30-day rehab program can involve a difficult transition for some. For clients able to commit, this is an ideal way to futhur develop their recovery.

Restaurant Visits

On Friday evenings and Sundays we visit local restaurants. An important part of our program is recovery coaching which involves exposure to everyday activities outside of treatment. At Hope Rehab we focus on providing a bridge to normal living.

I volunteered at Hope for 4 months this summer and have nothing but the highest praise for both the staff and the facilities and for what it offers people in recovery. It was a life changing experience for me. It is a very special place. I made some amazing friends during my time there as part of the team and it will always have a very very special place in my heart

Smoothie Break

Healthy banana and mango smoothies are waiting for the clients after gratitude. Our kitchen team makes them from scratch with fresh, local fruit every day – a treat that is both good for you and tasty!

The staff is great, the place is beautiful, the quality of the teaching and the sports available is unique. I ended up staying 60 days because I found out that I was doing much more than getting clean at Hope . I learned a lot about myself, I tried lots of new things, got out of my comfort zone and really felt part of a community of friends. Thank you Hope.
