Our program can effectively treat alcohol and drug substance abuse, as well as process addictions such as gambling and sex addiction, co-occurring disorders and other addiction issues.
Serenity Rehab Accommodation and Facilities
The accommodation and facilities at Serenity Rehab are comfortable and in a serene and peaceful environment. We are not the luxury resort styled rehab like some of the other centers in Thailand. Our focus is on the treatment aspect and bringing our clients into recovery. Our clients come to rehab after years of drug and alcohol abuse, many of our clients are funded by their families who are often stretched to afford even our low fees. In order to make our fees reasonable we have aimed at offering world class treatment and an excellent program focusing on what is important for your recovery.
Our answer when asked about our facilities is that we have everything you need but maybe not everything you want. Instead of wasting precious time in rehab on holiday activities, you will be working more intensely on your recovery, to get a stronger foundation to stay clean and sober for the long-term. Our mission is to make World class, effective addiction treatment available to everyone and to offer this we have some of the best counsellors and therapists in the world. We do not cut corners where it counts.
It is however not all work and no play, we do go out on enjoyable excursions to experience this amazing part of the world. Chiang Rai is the true cultural Thailand, that has been spared from the inundation of tourism and holiday resorts. Our location was specially picked for recovery, the closest village to the center is about a 45 minute walk and it is a very quiet place with little to no English spoken. Any kind of Western nightlife can only be found in the city of Chiang Rai more than 30 km away and it is very quiet when compared to the other areas of Thailand. This location was chosen so you can focus on your recovery, without the temptations of the city, since there is really nowhere to go.
Two Programs For Different Stages of Recovery
Primary Stage Rehab
Serenity Rehab is our first stage drug and alcohol addiction treatment program, everyone who comes to rehab in Thailand will first need to attend a minimum of 28 days in the primary program, longer for some. In Serenity Rehab you will start your journey to recovery, usually beginning with getting clean and sober and starting to learn to stay that way. The program is intensive and the environment is controlled. You will get clean, participate in group and one to one counseling, physical fitness, meditation, relapse prevention, educational groups, NA and AA meetings in house and off site. Clients in Serenity Rehab do not leave the center unless escorted by a staff member. The program is intensive and comprehensive, utilizing the best therapy and evidence based treatments available today to treat not only the addiction but the person as a whole. Clients can come to treatment at Serenity Rehab for just this program or, where needed after completing primary rehab, continue on in our second stage program.
Secondary Stage Rehab
After a client has finished a minimum of 4 weeks in the primary rehab they may participate in the second stage program. The main difference between the primary program and secondary is that clients in our second stage rehab have more freedom to come and go from the center with peer members and are not always accompanied by staff. Serenity’s second stage program is still an intensive program where clients will work deeper into the steps and their recovery, learning to live a happy life in recovery. Clients in the second stage program are on contract and will have regular drug and alcohol tests. The Serenity House program prepares clients to return to their life, triggers and using environments which they will be exposed to upon returning home at some point. Second stage treatment is an extremely important aspect of recovery and when done in a supportive environment after primary treatment can greatly increase a persons chances for lasting recovery and success.
Smaller is better, at Serenity we only accept 10 clients at a time in each program. This ensures that you get the personalized treatment that you need. In a center with extremely experienced staff and such a small number of clients your treatment program will quickly adapt to your specific needs. We believe that an effective treatment program needs to be personalized and tailored to the individual, there is no one size fits all.<

Living by this philosophy we have managed to reduce our fees by controlling our overheads and expenses to a level that we believe most people can afford. When even our low fees are too much for a person we still want to help, which is why we offer our scholarship program which you can read more about here. Basically when we have a bed available we would rather see someone in it and helping them on their way to recovery, then leaving it empty.
