The whole experience has been amazing and exceeded my expectations. I have found an inner peace that was truly missing from my life 28 days ago.
DARA isn’t just a rehab, it’s a 360 degree experience! Fantastic counselors, meditation and P.T.
I was extremely impressed with everything.
– Very stylish decor.
– I have never seen any hotel/resort do laundry in such an easy and fast manner.
– Little things like clothe hand towels in all the public restrooms (Rehabs don’t do that)
– Amenities in the room were extremely well thought out.
Staff – Professional
– I felt my tools and education I acquired will be highly more effective in my recovery than what I have experience elsewhere
– CBT works much better than 12-Steps for many!
Staff – House
– The Thai people are extremely friendly, hard working and terribly considerate
This was an excellent experience overall and I think it has brought changes to my life. Hopefully they will be lasting. I appreciated the good balance between group and individual therapy, and the exercise etc. For me personally I found the restrictions on movement outside the resort to be irksome, but understand that the rules need to apply to all equally. However I think that movement outside should be negotiable for clients in their last week or two – its an important element of preparation for re-entry to normal life. I like the philosophy of DARA and think you have an excellent model.
I’ve had a look at your review form and can say that I don’t have much to add except for the usual plaudits of a client who was fully satisfied with the services provided by the entire staff during my stay. I can’t think of anything critical to highlight or anything more to suggest on top of what you guys are already planning for the program. I CAN say that [a treatment staff member] was an excellent ‘fit’ for me. He ‘lead’ me perfectly and challenged me to face what I needed to address to come to grips with my addiction. That said, I must add that his’s contribution was matched in equal measures by i) insights gained from the other counsellors (the RP sessions were of particular value); and ii) insights gained from sharing experiences with other clients during my stay.
I can also say that I am still quite keen on coming for the ‘refresher’ in maybe 6 months’ time and I would be keen to hear from you as to how that works. I am sure that my recovery will have progressed to a new phase by then and that I could benefit from some additional ‘wisdom’ which might be appropriate to my circumstances at that time. I would also love to see how the program has evolved by then!
This place is truly amazing. You have helped me in so many ways and I am very grateful for that. Having clients and staff from around the world makes this place unique, along with being located in a beautiful setting assuring peace of mind during the recovery process.

Unbelievable location, unbeatable value
Due to the philanthropic subsidy and gratitude of key alumni members, DARA is able to offer one of the worlds’ most affordable and cost-effective luxury rehabilitation solutions. The treatment center has been re-appropriated from a former luxury tropical resort, and so a comparable level of care elsewhere in the world can cost anywhere from three to six times more. DARA provides a range of luxury accommodation options including sea view, garden view and private pool villas. Our villas are surrounded by beautifully landscaped tropical gardens and command elevated sunset views over the Western Pacific.
