Treatment at The Cabin Chiang Mai

The Cabin’s Addiction Treatment Method

Our inpatient addiction treatment method is comprised of a modern, intelligent, physical and holistic program for which we are highly commended amongst the medical community globally. The principal treatment used is Recovery Zones – it combines Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), 12 Steps and Mindfulness Meditation.

  • The CBT elements of the programme provide a highly personalised approach tailored to the individual's specific addiction treatment needs.
  • The 12 Steps are explained through a series of workshops using 'secular', or non-religious language to better suit our diverse clientele.
  • Mindfulness meditation is used as an evidence based way of treating mental and emotional health disorders like anxiety and depression which co-occur with addiction

The core substance abuse treatment program is augmented by tailored Exercise Therapy. The overall aim is to create both a sound mind and body.

However some of our clients are also experiencing trauma or PTSD symptoms. We provide an evidence based therapy called EMDR for treatment of these conditions.

Some clients may also need detoxification (see below) due to physical dependence on substances. Safe withdrawal can also be conducted onsite.

Addiction treatment usually consists of 2 main elements:

  1. Medical - supervised drug or alcohol detox, plus supervised and responsible prescribing for mental health or physical health issues

  2. Psychological and Behavioural – This includes counseling and mindfulness
