Understanding The Main Elements of Addiction Treatment


Detoxification is the cleansing of your system of the substance that you were using. Most substances do not cause a physical dependence and clients usually only suffer mild withdrawal symptoms like headaches and the inability to sleep. We have a doctor and medical staff available 24/7 to monitor all clients and prescribe medication to ease these symptoms as well as address any other health conditions.

However, severe alcohol and some other substance addictions do cause physical dependency. We advocate for clients grappling with such challenges to initially undergo detoxification in a hospital setting, ensuring comprehensive medical support. However, as part of our seamless approach, should lingering withdrawal symptoms persist or unforeseen developments arise, our adept medical team remains poised to offer on-site assistance, seamlessly integrating this vital facet into the rehabilitation journey.

Perhaps you’re also pondering, “How long does rehab take?”. The drug rehab process is inherently unique to each individual, and its duration can vary. Factors such as the substance involved, the level of dependence, and personal progress all play roles in determining the timeline. Trust that our dedicated team will work hand in hand with you, customising the experience as needed and providing the support necessary for your successful transformation.


How our drug rehab process works is by encompassing various facets, with a significant focus on addressing the psychological aspects of addiction treatment, given that addiction fundamentally involves psycho-social and behavioural components. To effectively tackle this, our approach incorporates a range of therapeutic techniques. Daily group therapy sessions and one-on-one counselling play pivotal roles in this aspect. These sessions are augmented by the incorporation of Mindfulness therapy, which aids in fostering self-awareness and emotional regulation.

Central to our methodology is the holistic treatment programme known as Changing Pathways. This comprehensive approach amalgamates diverse modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), the 12 Steps programme, and Mindfulness Meditation.

CBT, a highly personalised strategy, is meticulously tailored to cater to the specific needs of each individual undergoing treatment. Additionally, our practice includes the application of the 12-step method, a well-established approach that our clinical experts have thoughtfully adapted to be culturally sensitive and pertinent to contemporary lifestyles.

A crucial component of this rehabilitation process involves therapeutic meditation techniques, including the incorporation of Mindfulness meditation and yoga. Scientifically validated, these techniques are instrumental in addressing addiction by aiding stress management and the reduction of cravings. Furthermore, the regimen is complemented by Exercise Therapy, which features personalised training sessions and group activities. Delivered by a team of proficient fitness instructors well-versed in the challenges addicts encounter, this physical therapy component effectively rounds out the core programme.

Length of Stay

Your duration of stay at The Cabin depends on several factors, such as your personal requirements and level of addiction. The minimum duration is a one-month programme.

A Day at The Cabin

The day begins with breakfast at 7:45 a.m. Most days at The Cabin involve therapy sessions (group and one-on-one), physical therapy, mindfulness coaching and a variety of therapeutic workshops. Dinner is from 7:15 – 8 pm, after which you will have free time until 9:30 pm.

The weekends are a bit different. Saturday mornings involve participation in drum or art therapy, whilst the afternoon is allocated to fitness activities, professional grooming services or personal phone time. Sundays are solely used for enjoyable day trips around Chiang Mai, such as visiting elephant camps, whitewater rafting, Thai cooking classes and more.

Phone Calls and Internet

The Cabin provides an optimal environment for a total immersion treatment programme. We do understand that some communication, e.g., vis-à-vis family or business, is necessary or helpful. That said, during your treatment stay at The Cabin, you will have limited phone and Internet access. Learn more about our Electronics Policy.

Aftercare Treatment

After you have successfully completed primary treatment, you will be ready to start utilising aftercare options. Aftercare is incredibly important when it comes to preventing relapse and we make sure that all of our clients receive the aftercare that is suitable for them.

Our complimentary 8-week aftercare programme involves systematic online video group therapy sessions that allow clients to interact with each other and the counsellor in realtime, regardless of where they are in the world. Since you are already familiar with the group, this continuing dynamic has proven to have a significant positive effect on the efficacy and success of our treatment programme.

Aside from these free, compulsory group counselling sessions, you can also purchase one-on-one counselling sessions whenever you please. Additionally, we have a number of outpatient clinics in major cities such as SingaporeHong Kong and Sydney that provide outpatient aftercare programmes to individuals in those locations.
