It is a standing joke that despite the best intentions New Year’s resolutions are seldom kept – but the lure to make them can be overwhelming; especially for those struggling with alcoholism or drug addiction. With the unpleasant effects of holiday time excess all too vivid, we jump upon January as the time to change.

It is no secret that we all experience stress, and the pressures of modern society can make it seem as though if you’re not stressed out - then you’re not working hard enough.

In the Spotlight: The Cabin Hong Kong Team

he Cabin Hong Kong  joanne  andy  jimmy

Meet the team at The Cabin Hong Kong – Asia’s first dedicated outpatient addiction treatment centre to open in February 2015. Located in the bustling business hub of Central, Hong Kong, our treatment programme is available weekdays through to 9pm in the evening allowing functioning individuals with addiction problems to get help whilst still being able to meet work and family commitments.

The programme, designed by our Clinical Director Alastair Mordey, will be conducted by a team of highly skilled and credentialed experts with years of experience treating the disease. They will also be available for one-on-one sessions, family counselling and other types of consultations, such as psychiatric assessment and medication review. Many of our staff are in recovery themselves so they understand first-hand the nature of the disease and how it is best treated.

Alumni Update

Though over 1,000 clients have successfully completed treatment with us since we began operations in 2009, 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.

Al, London, Graduated September 2014
I thought it would be a lot easier. It takes a lot of work. Recovery has consumed my life, but, so did using. There was no pink cloud for me, far from it. I left The Cabin full of fear and excitement, brimming with positive and negative thoughts and emotions, pure confusion. read more

Lian, Hong Kong, Graduated August 2014
I arrived at The Cabin on 10th July 2014, broken, scared and desperate. After 32 years of drinking and leaving all kinds of debris in my wake I had finally hit my rock bottom and desperately needed help. 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 or email your counsellor.
