Quality Sober Living Thailand

Welcome to Hope House Thailand

Hope House Thailand is a modern drug and alcohol recovery house, located in central Thailand. Whilst other facilities boast large 5 star surroundings and large teams of staff catering for large numbers of clients, Hope House is a second stage treatment and recovery house facility that has a family feel to it. We aim to make you feel at ease from the moment you arrive.

We are a recovery house, for drug addicts and alcoholics,  in the small fishing village of Bang Sare, Thailand. If you are reading this page then you are either someone needing help or you are someone with a family member/friend who needs help with their drug/alcohol problem. The question that’s probably playing on your mind may just be; What is Rehab or more importantly what is a recovery house? What can Hope House offer that no-one else can?

The house provides a recovery focused setting for those who complete primary treatment, are at least 2 months clean/sober and are looking to put the skills learned there into every day life, while still maintaining support from other clients and staff. We are one of very few second stage treatment centres in Thailand. We offer a full program backed by the option to continue with our supported living programs. If you require detox we can assist you with finding this here in Thailand, as there are many primary care drug and alcohol rehabs to choose from. Thailand is quickly becoming the most popular destination for addicts and alcoholics wishing to find long term recovery at a far more reasonable cost.

We are situated in Ban Sare, Sattahip, Chonburi on the eastern seaboard of Thailand and this means we are a pretty central location in Thailand. The location means we are close enough to the city where self help group meetings are held but secluded enough to maintain a healthy environment for early recovery. The village itself boasts a lovely beach, an early morning market, 2 temples, an exercise park, a yoga studio, many Thai or western restaurants and a lovely Thai community feel. Recovery from drug addiction or alcoholism is a process and we have created an environment to take the next step in that process. Don’t just take our word for it listen to the words of our past clients testimonials.

What to expect from us

At Hope House we have a program centred around a combination of The Minnesota Model, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Meditation techniques and Healthy Living. It is here you will be provided the freedom to explore various ways to manage your daily life and begin your journey of recovery from addiction/alcoholism. This is greatly recognised as a key component in treatment, easing the transition between primary treatment and every day life. It is a well known fact that those choosing to go into secondary treatment have a higher success rate of recovery, putting in more work always gets better results.

The program at Hope House includes continuing recovery through regular groups and sober coaching sessions. Other daily regimes include attending local self-help meetings, mindfulness, exercise, meditation, and healthy living. Along with daily recovery programs like this, they are also assisted in volunteering at the local orphanage for children with special needs.

Everyone working or volunteering at Hope House are themselves recovering addicts, whom have successfully gained recovery from their addiction/alcoholism. We have a team dedicated to taking care of you and there is always someone here 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

Opportunities also include being able to take courses at the local college with a view to finding english teaching positions. Clients are able to take a TEFL (Teach English as a Foreign Language) course, which has been very popular with past clients providing structure to addicts and alcoholics in early recovery. We sometimes are found teaching the local monks in Ban Sarray temple English as part of our way of giving to the local community.

Strengthening Foundations

Drug rehabilitation programs are usually split into several stages. The Primary treatment phase for drug addiction/alcoholism can take around 4 to 16 weeks depending on your history, current situation and therapeutic needs. After successfully completing this phase of your rehab program, you will begin looking at options of moving into a secondary treatment program or sober living facility.

The primary goal of the program at Hope House is to assist you in your reintegration back into the real world. You will still have a heavily structured programme but the level of support will not be so great as we encourage you to take responsibility for your own recovery. Utilizing the skills learnt during your primary treatment.

We require you to have completed a primary treatment program before coming to Hope House and be clean/sober for 2 months prior to coming. Although we also have clients who come back to secondary treatment after months of being clean because they are finding it too difficult back home.

Helping you Re-integrate

During your time at Hope House you will be working closely with a dedicated recovery coach on the problems identified in your primary treatment. Combining this with self-help group sessions, mindfulness, Fitness, yoga, meditation and assistance in making ongoing plans. You will find it to be a fulfilling and rewarding time spent here.

Due to financial limitations and needs back home, we realize that this stage of the treatment process is not available to everyone. But all the evidence clearly points toward the fact that the longer you stay, the higher chances there is of gaining long term recovery from addiction/alcoholism. Most of our successful clients confirm that our program played a large part in the success of their long term recovery

Our program is available to successful graduates of any primary drug rehab program from around the world. Just contact us with details of the treatment facility you are currently at and an outline of your particular needs. The treatment facility will need to give proof you are at least 2 months/clean/sober. This secondary phase could be the next step in your recovery journey.

The Program

We have a full weekly program, utilising all the best components of CBT, The Minnesota model and Mindfulness meditation techniques. Our program is following what is widely accepted by the medical and addiction community worldwide as the most effective way forward. Ours is a modern holistic approach to recovery and comprises of the following elements of treatment models. You will have learned a lot about your addiction in primary treatment but here you will put into practice all you have learned whilst still having the support of self help groups and sober coaching sessions.

  • The Minnesota Model, also known also as the abstinence model. Using modern bite-sized workshops to breakdown the 12 step program with easier language to enable better understanding form our varied client base.
  • CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) widely used in addiction treatment, challenging negative self talk, managing triggers, managing negative feelings and challenging behaviours not conducive to recovery.
  • Mindfulness Meditation has it’s home in SE Asia but is now used around the world in dealing with cases of depression, anxiety and PTSD. It has now become respected as an effective evidence based tool in the field of addiction treatment for managing cravings, gaining healthy sleep patterns and the ability of calming thought processes that could possibly be negative to recovery.

Upon arrival clients are expected to be drug and alcohol free and take part in all aspects of the program which will give a daily routine and structure to their newly found freedom. The program is not as intense as that of primary treatment but is the next step in finding and making your own program for when you get home. Clients are also encouraged to build a program of their own whilst here and any help they may need in doing so will be made available by our dedicated staff.
