The easy answer is affordability. We recognize that addiction rehabilitation is a considerable expense. Our aim is to open up addiction treatment to as many people as possible. There are luxury exclusive spa rehabs for the rich and famous, but not so many for the average working family who have been affected by drug and alcohol problems. We looked at what was necessary for recovery and what luxuries were not required. We had many years’ experience, there really is no substitute for that. We absolutely refused to water down the tried and tested program that had helped us, and many thousand more.
Location of our rehab in Thailand
ARC lies nestled amid the secluded, lush mountain greenery on the outskirts of Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand. The serene surroundings are conducive with peaceful therapy, and a healthy lifestyle. Tropical banana leaves line the path from the recovery center past 14 individual bungalows to a cool pool and relaxation area.
Locating ARC in Thailand enables us to keep the prices affordable while providing a western management and modern transport infrastructure. Crime is very low and so the security of the clients is much easier to maintain. Sporty adventures are very close by. ATV and Quad bike tours, flying among the treetops in the Eagle Ziplines, Chiang Mai’s own beach at the Grand Canyon or White water rafting
The Thai food
Many clients say that the fresh locally produced food was one of the highlights of their treatment. A healthy diet full of fresh fruit and vegetables is part of our holistic approach. ‘We are what we eat’, it is said and ‘If you haven’t tasted Khao Soi you haven’t been to Chiang Mai’. Restful sleep, a healthy breakfast and morning exercise set us up for a great day in recovery.
Close to nearby Thai temples
ARC is a 30 minute drive from the city of Chiang Mai. The city was founded in 1296, as the capital of the independent Lanna Kingdom and remained as such until 1558. The Old City area still retains parts of the walls and moats from its history as a cultural and religious centre. Chiang Mai is home to hundreds of amazing Buddhist temples, including 15th-century Wat Chedi Luang, adorned with carved serpents and the 14th-century Wat Phra Singh
Shining like a star from the heights of Doi Suthep, the royal mountain overlooking the city from the northwest, is the golden temple of Wat Phra That Doi Suthep. It is one of the most historically and spiritually significant sites in Thailand and is an impressive fulfilment of the Lanna culture, with its origins dating back almost 700 years. As such, large numbers of Thais and foreigner tourists come to experience the special magic of this holy site. The journey up the winding mountain road through ancient forests and passing by tumbling waterfalls is part of an unforgettable experience.
