Whether you’re living in Thailand or another country, DARA Drug and Alcohol Rehab is a great choice for drug and alcohol treatment and rehabilitation if you want to stop drinking alcohol or using drugs and have found that you can’t stop on your own. Your inability to stop drinking/using is not a terminal condition. You can stop. Our two premier alcohol and drug rehab facilities in Thailand have helped many people lead a life of sobriety.
DARA’s Koh Chang location
Our flagship location is situated on the Thai tropical paradise of Koh Chang (Elephant Island) is a beautiful and secluded island noted for its safety and security. DARA Koh Chang combines an intensive drug rehab center with a luxury hotel. DARA Koh Chang employs over 50 staff, including 15 full-time, internationally certified therapists. This location offers personalized four, eight and twelve week rehabilitation programs, each using DARA’s Integrated Behavioral Therapy™ (IBT).
Located in the stunning Koh Chang National Park, clients reside in 40 villas surrounded by beautifully landscaped tropical gardens.
DARA’s Chanthaburi Location
Chanthaburi (also known as the City of the Moon) is a sleepy Thai rural town famous for its tropical fruits, fantastic seafood and colored gemstones.
DARA Chanthaburi employs over 20 staff, including five full-time, internationally certified therapists. This location offers personalized four, eight and twelve week programs, utilizing DARA’s Steps to Recovery™ treatment approach.
We encourage you to call us directly to discuss which program is right for you. You will speak directly with one of our counselors.
DARA Drug and Alcohol Rehab
DARA’s drug and alcohol rehab 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 alcohol and drug 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 DARA’s 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.
Getting to DARA for Alcohol & Drug Rehab is Easy and Convenient
If you choose to come to DARA Drug and Alcohol Rehab’s recovery center, getting to Bangkok isn’t difficult. Many domestic and international flights arrive daily at Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport. DARA is located in the eastern part of Thailand, so you’ll need to have a connecting flight from Bangkok to Trat. The flight from Bangkok to Trat is less than an hour with three direct flights daily provided by Bangkok Airways. Upon arrival at the Trat Airport, you will be escorted to Bangkok Hospital Trat by an English speaking member of their staff. All clients, before entering rehab at DARA, will be admitted to Bangkok Hospital Trat for 24 hours for a full medical assessment and observation which is included in the price of your DARA treatment package. If you need more than a 24-hour stay at the hospital for in-patient detoxing, you will, however, be responsible for the additional fees, paid directly to the hospital.
If you or a loved one has an alcohol and addiction problem, contact DARA. We are happy to discuss your needs and concerns, and provide the help and information you need to regain your sobriety.
