Serenity Rehab is located approximately 20 minutes from the Chiang Rai airport and 30 minutes from the city of Chiang Rai. Our location is rural and very peaceful and tranquil. It is a perfect setting for focusing on our addiction treatment program, while excursions in the area and fitness activities keep us connected with the surrounding community.
Chiang Rai is the perfect setting for addiction rehab, as it is not a heavily touristed place where drugs and alcohol are predominant, such as Bangkok, Phuket, Samui, and Pattaya. It is simply a different environment, and that is what is needed especially for those in early recovery. When Serenity was located on the island of Samui, we found many of our clients struggled in being surrounded by such a party scene. We relocated to Chiang Rai for this very reason, as well as the ability to lower our fees due to lower costs in rural Chiang Rai.
Getting to Chiang Rai
Chiang Rai International Airport is an 80 minute flight from Bangkok (BKK) with dozens of flights to and from Bangkok every day. If desired, Serenity Rehab can provide one of our support staff to meet clients at the Bangkok airport and guide them to the connecting flight, as well as taxi service to our rehab facility in Chiang Rai. Many people make their own flight plans through to Chiang Rai, however there are times when it is more convenient to use our trusted guides to make the connecting flight, and sets the mind at ease.
