The Cabin Chiang Mai 2016 Alumni Reunion

The Cabin Chiang Mai 2016 Alumni Reunion

This past February 10th, we hosted our third Alumni Reunion for former clients of The Cabin Chiang Mai – a half-day celebration to mark their successful journeys in recovery thus far, and to encourage them to keep up the good work.

Attended by past clients from countries near and far, the event featured two inspirational personal recovery stories; as well as a “Clean Time Countdown” where both clients and counsellors counted the years, months or weeks they have been sober to rounds of encouraging applause. The highlight, however, was a Recovery Encouragement Gift Ceremony – where the alumni generously presented gifts to each of The Cabin’s current clients as a token of encouragement to stick with their treatment. The Cabin also presented the alumni with reunion souvenirs in the form of custom-made luggage tags – an allusion to their recovery journeys and how they must keep travelling on.

Blog: How Long Will Drug or Alcohol Cravings Take to Go Away?

Here at The Cabin, we get many questions regarding drugs and alcohol — one of the most popular is "How long will it take for drug or alcohol cravings to go away?" We feel that this is an important question, but unfortunately there is no simple or direct answer to it.  read more

Alumni Update

Though over 1,700 clients have successfully completed treatment with us since we began operations in 2010, we try to stay in touch with all of them and follow their progress. When a client leaves The Cabin Chiang Mai they are just embarking on their journey of recovery, certain to be filled with challenges and temptations as they begin their new life back home. Here we’d like to share some updates from our alumni.



Jeremy, Malaysia, Graduated April 2015
Although I am a GA, I attend NA meetings because there are no GA meetings in my country. Things that I learned in The Cabin have kept me going – doing step work with my sponsor via Skype, going for meetings… Slowly things have begun to change, not every day is a bed full of roses but the trust of my family is slowly coming back.  read more
Alumni Update Andy, Thailand, Graduated March 2016
For the first time in my life I feel so free, for the first time in my life I feel like I am not carrying the heavy baggage on me.  read more


Peer support is an extremely important part of the recovery process – if you’d like to share your progress with us and your Cabin peers write to us at [email protected] or email your counsellor.
