Rehab Thailand

Why Holina Rehab Thailand?

Whenever anyone is deciding upon which Residential Rehab to attend, the first point is that it’s always preferable for you to leave the familiar environments and situations of your active addiction. This usually means removing yourself from your home, your village/town/city, and having a complete change of scenery. If you live in a city then it’s good to attend somewhere away from the bustle of city life. If you live somewhere quiet and secluded then it’s good to go somewhere with more activity around it. Go somewhere new and unfamiliar, but safe. There’s more to this topic than simply changing location. For many years now the idea of going somewhere appealing has come up and Rehab tourism has emerged.

In the USA originally it was heading to Florida, California, The Caribbean, etc, and for Europe, Spain and Portugal became popular. Then we saw the emergence of the South African Rehab industry, which were offering low-cost (due to the exchange rate) rehab in sunny climates with Safari expeditions as one of the features to attract interested Europeans. But South Africa still has its political instability and the continued segregation between the black and white populations, as well as the huge gaps between the wealthy and the poverty-stricken, which can be hugely unpleasant for all visitors to see and witness. Then, over the past 5+ years or so, Thailand has become a great option for residential Rehab for a great many reasons, some of which are explained on this page.

Rehab Thailand

Although Thailand can be considered distant for many of our English-speaking enquires who maybe aren’t so familiar with long-haul flights (USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, UK, Ireland, Holland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Iceland, Israel, Middle East, etc), Bangkok is truly one of the world’s greatest and most efficient international airport hubs and it’s just a short hop over to Koh Samui, where we’ll meet you and bring you over in a speed boat to gorgeous Koh Phangan.

Treatment away from home also allows you to maintain your privacy and confidentiality, which we know is a high priority for many of our residents. Being in such a quiet space makes your experience even more rewarding, and of course, living in such beautiful surroundings goes a very long way towards making Recovery really attractive. Furthermore, when attending treatment in Koh Phangan, it’s very easy to explain to your friends and colleagues back home that you’re away on holiday.

The World Renowned Hospitality

Thailand is world-renowned for the hospitality of local people and at Holina you will be extremely well taken care of by our resort staff including the House Keeping team, as well as all our other Thai and even some Burmese staff. Every single one of our staff will make you feel welcome, and you’ll organically begin adopting some of the Thai customs, aimed at making one another feel extra special (very good for self worth and self esteem).

Please don’t worry about speaking the Thai language. All of our key staff members are English-speaking and that includes our Thai staff. Furthermore, the locals in Koh Phangan speak very good English so you’ll never struggle. If you are interested in learning some of the local language however, you might have the opportunity to pick up a few Thai words to take back home with you!

The Healing Nature of Thailand

Ask anyone who has traveled here, Thailand is unlike any other place in the world. Whilst at Holina you will have access to much of what Thailand really has to offer: magnificent beaches, snorkelling / scuba diving / free-diving, lush jungles, and some stunning mountain landscaping.

The tranquillity that is accessed via the scenery is further complemented by the enveloping of Thai Buddhist culture, which can be felt from the moment you step into Thailand and breathe in the sweet air of the ‘Land of Smiles.

We offer our residents the opportunity to experience mindfulness and meditation and encourage a visit with one of our Founders at Holina Monk Prah Olarn (Smiling Monk in Thai), the Senior Monk of Koh Phangan, at the local temple, as well as visiting other cultural sites on the Island, including the elephants.

Going for Rehab in Thailand, especially Koh Phangan, permits you to access great help and care in a sunny and exotic location. This is known to create many positive psychological benefits.
