DARA Drug and Alcohol Rehab offers effective, innovative drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs in two resort-like settings in the beautiful country of Thailand. DARA is proud to be internationally recognized a premier provider of drug and alcohol rehab, and the leading international destination for drug and alcohol rehabilitation treatment in Asia. By design, we are able to offer the average individual and family an extremely high level of professional services and luxurious amenities at an affordable price. In addition, our treatment completion rate is 92%, whereas the average completion rate for other facilities is under 50%. Contact DARA, and we’re happy to explain how we consistently achieve this, and how we can make a difference to you or your loved one.
DARA uses a comprehensive and personalized approach to recovery. To best meet the needs of our clients, each of our luxurious, upscale facilities are governed by DARA’s Integrated Treatment Model (ITM), an approach that combines physical, psychological, social and spiritual foci using a variety of individual and group activities. In addition to ITM, DARA Koh Chang uses our specialized Integrated Behavioral Therapy™ (IBT) as a core philosophy, while DARA Chanthaburi utilizes our Steps to Recovery™ program.
International Recovery Center for Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation
DARA Drug and Alcohol Rehab helps individuals from all over the world lead a clean and sober life. Our clinicians and support staff are English-speaking, and our professional chefs are able to accommodate a wide variety dietary needs and preferences. DARA provides expert drug and alcohol rehabilitation to clients from all countries, including:
- United Kingdom & Ireland

When you contact either of DARAs drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities you will speak directly with a professional counselor, not an impersonal intake center. This is one of the many ways that DARA provides a fully hands-on experience for each person that we serve.
DARA’s Therapeutic Approach for Drug and Alcohol Rehab
DARA’s drug and alcohol rehabilitation process at both DARA Koh Chang and DARA Chanthaburi is governed by ITM (Integrated Treatment Model). Some of the modalities used in ITM at DARA include but are not limited to:
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
- Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
- Rational Emotive Therapy
- Transactional Analysis (TA)
- Relapse Prevention Therapy (including a Relapse Prevention Track for certain clients)
- Schema Therapy
- Motivational Interviewing
Clients also received concurrent treatment for co-occurring mental health issues, such as depression, anxiety or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). We have certified dual diagnosis clinicians on staff who are experienced in treating many types of mental and behavioral health issues that are present along with a drug, alcohol or processing addiction. Clients with active suicidality, paranoia or delusional behaviors, however, are not appropriate for the level of care provided at DARA.
Each member of DARAs professional clinical team live and work full-time in Thailand. This is an important distinction, since some drug and alcohol rehab centers hire short-term staff who agree to provide professional services while taking advantage of a working vacation in a resort setting. Our international staff is fully dedicated to DARAs mission, and able to invest in both DARAs clients and the local community because it is their own home, and not merely a short-term stay.
