It all starts with an Email or Telephone Contact

To enter treatment at our drug and alcohol rehab, please email or call us to speak to one of our admissions officers. All of our phone conversations will be completely confidential. We will ask you about your history of addiction, your demographic information, and your availability. You will be given information about our rehab treatment programmes and any addiction resources that may be of benefit to you. If you have any specific questions regarding addiction, we will put you in contact with a member of our clinical team. This phone call will help you to make the right decisions on what to do.

Personalised Assessment

Following our initial call you will receive a second phone call from one of our counsellors to help us understand your personal, medical and substance abuse history. We are happy to assess you entirely by phone but we also invite you to fill out our on-line Assessment Form (optional)

Travel Arrangements

Your admissions officer will be happy to help you with your travel arrangements


For most nationalities, a stay of 30 days is achievable by obtaining a visa on arrival at your port of entry in Thailand. If you would like the flexibility to stay longer you will need to apply for a 2 month tourist visa (which is extendable to 3 months once in Thailand) in your home country prior to travelling. Your admissions officer will advise you.


Unless you are flying to Chiang Mai direct from Singapore, Seoul, Kuala Lumpur or Bangkok you will need to transit through Bangkok. There are hourly flight connections every day between Bangkok and Chiang Mai. Your admissions officer will assist with flight bookings.


You will be picked up from Chiang Mai Airport by our staff and driven the short 15 minute journey to The Cabin.

Arrival times

Except in exceptional circumstances we require clients to arrive before 4pm so that we can welcome and settle you in to The Cabin efficiently.

Making Payment

Full payment is due before arrival at The Cabin Chiang Mai. Your admissions officer will liaise with you to arrange for payment by credit card or bank transfer before you arrive.

At the time of booking we will also require a 20% deposit.

Admission Requirements
  • You should be physically and mentally able to participate in daily activities. If you are concerned with any physical or mental disabilities, please let your admissions officer know.
  • You must be willing to abide by our treatment programme rules and regulations.
  • You must be willing to follow the treatment plan developed for you by our team of counsellors.
Medical Records And Health Check

We advise most of our patients to send current medical records if possible. If you have any medical conditions, we must be notified. During your first few days you will be given a health check by our on-site doctor.

Upon Your Arrival

Upon your arrival in Chiang Mai, Thailand you will be greeted by one of our support staff members. You will be transferred by private transportation to our secluded rehab location, which is approximately 20 minutes from the airport. Once you arrive at The Cabin, you will go through an Intake Process with one of our support staff. They will also record your history of drug or alcohol use, which will be passed on to The Cabin’s clinical and medical teams to develop your individualised treatment plan.
