Treatment Center

Each DARA residential treatment center provides an impressive quality and range of professional services, highly individualized to each client, in a compassionate and structured environment. Recovery from drug and alcohol addiction is possible at DARA. Our goal is to provide each client with what they need to succeed in recovery and regain a healthy approach to living. DARA is Asia’s first and most established substance abuse treatment center, and has been in operation longer than any other center in Thailand. Our internationally certified staff work full-time at DARA, and provide a wealth of expertise in the fields drug, alcohol and behavioural addictions. The staff are also highly experienced in dealing with issues which arise from what is known as dual diagnosis. Dual diagnosis refers to the treatment of people who are dealing with both a mental illness and an addiction at the same time.

A residential addiction rehabilitation program allows someone who is struggling in their normal environment to focus completely on successful treatment. Often being away from the normal stresses of life and ‘triggers’ (such as people places or things) previously associated with addiction is what makes all the difference between a successful recovery and relapse. DARA provides a luxurious treatment environment that is dedicated to meeting the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs of each client receiving care at our residential treatment centers.

At DARA, clients are able to stop concentrating on that next drink, that next drug hit, that next bet. Recovery is not just overcoming the cravings, but also finding joy and purpose in living. Fresh air, rest, nutritious meals, and increased physical and emotional well-being are all part of the DARA treatment process. All in a beautiful, healing setting. We believe that the opposite of addiction isn’t just sobriety. It is learning how to create a life worth living. Our tropical residences are where many new lives have begun.


DARA’s Residential Drug Abuse Program

DARA’s residential program is one part of the continuum of care necessary for gaining sobriety and health. Some patients require detox services prior to beginning therapy at our residential treatment center, to ensure that they are safely ready for this level of care. DARA is pleased to help arrange local detox services in Thailand, so that there is no delay in beginning residential care after detox is complete. We work only with the best people both before and after our residential program. Contact us to see how we can arrange this for you.

Family support, communication skills and relationship repair and re-connection are part of DARA’s Integrated Treatment Model. A human being is more than an addiction. Each person treated at DARA is seen as the unique person that they are, with a personal history and deeply individual needs. Respectful, compassionate care is a core philosophy at DARA. We accept nothing less.

Each of DARA’s residential treatment center locations allow us to offer both treatment and accommodations on one lush, relaxing campus. There are many quiet places for reflection on the work being done each day. Extra steps and care are taken in our residential program to improve the health of the whole person.

The length of the residential program is client-dependent. For more information and a confidential initial assessment please contact us and speak directly with a certified therapist today.
