2015 Alumni Reunion and 5th Anniversary Celebration
February 26th and 27th 2015 were big days for us here at The Cabin Chiang Mai, the clinical team had been especially looking forward to them because it meant they would get to see many of their former clients who were flying in from different parts of the globe to join in the 2015 Alumni Reunion and to celebrate The Cabin Chiang Mai’s 5th Anniversary.
The two-day event, kicked off on the evening of Feb 26th with a welcome speech from our Programme Director Alastair Mordey, followed by dinner on the riverside lawns with a Northern Thai Lanna cultural show. The highlight of the evening, however, was the campfire-style Gratitude Meeting attended by both alumni and current clients, where Marc from Germany generously shared his experience from addiction to recovery. It served as great encouragement for clients currently in treatment to persevere with the programme.
The next morning, two more of our alumni – Entoni and Fabienne from Australia – took to the podium to give an update of their progress in recovery and reveal how their experience at The Cabin helped transformed their lives. Their shares were proceeded by an Alumni Recognition Ceremony where all former clients were presented with inscribed vintage-silver medals. It was then time for a sumptuous lunch before concluding celebrations with a serenity prayer.
