Overseas Rehab Centres: It’s Cheap But Is It Better?

Articles, Australia

DARA offers clinically expert and internationally credentialed team at an affordable all-inclusive price.

When comparing overseas rehab centres with those in your home country, start by doing side-by-side comparisons. Some Australian critics interpret “affordable” as “low quality” when discussing what an overseas rehab centre has to offer. We want you to understand why this broad paintbrush does not describe DARA.  In fact “affordable” at DARA means that you receive:


  • A gold standard facility that diligently maintains multiple international credentials, including a long-standing relationship with the prestigious National Association of Addiction Treatment Provides (NAATD).
  • Internationally educated and experienced treatment specialists (licensed and credentialed in their areas of expertise).
  • DARAs clinical team live and work full-time in Thailand. Make sure that any overseas rehab centre you consider follows this custom. Some facilities trade short term contracts to addiction clinicians in return for a short “working holiday.” This is not in your best interest!
  • At DARA, “all inclusive” means exactly that, with no hidden fees. We are fully transparent. All treatment, supportive therapy, chef-created meals, off-site sober excursions and events, private accommodations are included! You also receive VIP escorted pick up to and from the airport in Thailand, and an overnight medical evaluation stay at one of Thailand’s premier hospitals.
  • When your treatment at DARA in Thailand is nearly complete, you will already have worked with your treatment team to have the resources and support in place at home to help keep your recovery on track.

How DARA Keeps the Cost of Expert Individualized Care Affordable

Thailand offers an economical cost of doing business that allows DARA to create our extraordinary level of comprehensive care. We have two upscale, resort like settings that the average family can afford. Our definition of affordability is not just financial. It is making sure that our clients also receive the quality of care that is unmatched anywhere. This is just one reason DARA is among the most highly regarded drug and alcohol treatment centres in Asia.

Surrounded by the natural beauty of Thailand, DARA’s lush grounds and relaxing spaces provide an extra level of therapeutic value. Our clients have time to process the challenging tasks of rehab without the distractions and stressors of home or problematic settings and situations that support the addiction.

DARA encourages you to contact us directly to discuss what our overseas rehab centre can offer you or your loved one. We understand that you may have concerns, based on news reports you may have read in Australia. It is true that not all Thailand-based rehab centres provide the level of care and evidence-based treatment that DARA does, or as affordable as they claim to be. DARA is extraordinary and different, and we’d like to share with you why.

Call us! You will be connected directly with one of our counselors, and not an impersonal call centre. DARA’s goal is to provide you with the and skills you need to live a rewarding, meaningful life free from addiction
