Excursions in rehab serve as an important part of addiction treatment, they teach us to enjoy ourselves without the need for drugs or alcohol, in situations where we would usually drink or use, as well as they serve as team building and camaraderie.
At Serenity Rehab we are in an amazing tropical location which has many opportunities to go out and explore and enjoy what the North of Thailand has to offer. On Sundays after a hard week's work in treatment we take most of the day off and among the group of clients we decide what is on the agenda for the day. We usually have lunch at a beautiful outdoor restaurant and have different activities depending on the client's choices, the weather, and what opportunities present themselves.
Some of the options include:
- Jungle trekking
- Rock climbing / Ziplines / Spelunking
- River rafting and river boat cruises
- Ten-pin Bowling
- Hot springs
- Mountain biking
- Tea plantations
- Buddhist temples and shrines
- Seeing elephants, monkeys, and other wildlife
- Dining at various restaurants in the area
The choice of excursion each weekend is up to the group. Excursions are included in the fees for each programme.
