Guide to Thailand’s Addiction Treatment Centers
Popularly known for her breathtaking beaches, tasty cuisine and friendly people, Thailand is on the map once again for another kind of tourism – medical tourism.
The two main reasons driving the influx of Westerners into Thailand for medical treatments are price and the high standard of care. Whether it’s for dental work, cosmetic surgery or for addiction recovery, the cost of undergoing medical care in Thailand is far less when compared to the UK, US, Canada, or Australia – sometimes saving you as much as 80%.
It’s easy to see why Thailand has become a popular destination for addiction recovery. The growing list of treatment centers catering to international clients offer an alternative to more traditional forms of rehabilitation in a country that has a deep association with Buddhism and mindfulness; and striking natural beauty.
Thai rehabs are often in the same league as their Western counterparts for rehabilitation success rates but finding the rehab that is right for your specific needs and circumstances can sometimes prove daunting.
