We believe that fun during treatment is not only possible, but is really quite important to promote a balanced recovery.

As active addiction can last for many years, leading to lost time and isolation, becoming disconnected from a normal and enjoyable way of living is to be expected. At our treatment center in Chiang Mai, we want you to RECONNECT and learn how to have fun again whilst being sober. Try it for yourself and see that fun in recovery really is possible!
