About The Cabin Rehab

The Cabin Group

The Cabin Group offers effective inpatient and outpatient treatment for substance addictions and process addictions (such as gambling and sex). We have facilities in many countries, but our flagship addiction treatment and rehabilitation centre is The Cabin Chiang Mai, which is located in the foothills of Northern Thailand.

For more than a decade The Cabin has helped patients heal, by addressing not just their behaviours and symptoms, but also providing them with the essential tools required to tackle the root causes of their disorders and to achieve lasting recovery. Successfully treated more than 5,000 people suffering from addiction from all parts of the world – a testament to the reputation we have earned of being  ‘the Betty Ford of Asia’.

As Asia’s most respected addiction rehabilitation centre, we offer affordable, high-quality addiction treatment in an environment designed for healing and growing. Our client’s privacy and anonymity are assured at our secluded mountainside facility which features an atmosphere perfectly conducive to recovery. Our treatment approach is comprised of a modern, intelligent, physical and holistic treatment programme for which we are commended amongst the medical community globally. We focus on treating the underlying issues that cause addiction to substances such as alcohol, and drugs and processes such as sex or gambling. The overall aim is to create both a sound mind and body.

On top of our world-class treatment programme, clients are far from their usual triggers and enjoy the chance to go on a range of exciting excursions in one of the world’s greatest adventure destinations. We have a proven track record of treatment completion and recovery rates that give us the confidence to offer a unique refund policy. Our addiction treatment programmes are all-inclusive of private accommodation, all meals, individual and group addiction counselling sessions, fitness therapy, massage treatment, weekly excursions and aftercare coaching.
