Two Luxurious Drug and Alcohol Rehab Locations in Thailand

Dara rehab offers two superb rehabilitation treatment centers. Each drug & alcohol rehab location provides the most effective therapeutic methodologies, using individualized client-specific care plans that are created by our certified clinical staff. By choosing the right treatment for each client’s unique needs, recovery is more effective and meaningful.

Thailand provides a setting that is unmatched in beauty and serenity, and the geographic separation from home helps our clients focuses fully on their recovery. As an important part of the recovery process, clients will take part in cultural excursions and activities, at no additional cost.

Each of our luxurious facilities utilizes DARA’s highly regarded Integrated Treatment Model (ITM). DARA’s ITM combines physical, social, psychological and spiritual aspects through a variety of individual and group orientated activities. ITM utilizes a wide range of modalities, each provided by clinicians with approach-specific certification and experience.  A client receives one or more interventional approaches, depending on their specific requirements.

Our Integrative Treatment Model is implemented through an individualized care plan that includes one or several evidence-based approaches, including, but not limited to:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Rational Emotive Therapy
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
  • Schema Therapy
  • Transactional Analysis (TA)
  • Trauma Therapy
  • Relapse Prevention Therapy and a specialized Relapse Prevention Track

DARA also provides concurrent treatment for dual diagnosis issues such as anxiety and depression, coordinated and implemented by specialists in a variety of dual diagnosis areas. During the pre-admission evaluation process a psychological assessment will be done, and recommendations will be offered to prospective clients. Clients with suicidality, delusional, or psychotic symptoms require treatment that is more specialized than that provided at DARA, but we are happy to recommend alternative options.
