Value for money plays a key role in Thailand’s appeal as an affordable rehab destination – but there are also non-financial reasons why Thai rehabs stand out even among countries notable for medical tourism. Thailand’s relatively low cost of living allows you to receive quality care at a reasonable price. In fact, since virtually all costs in a country like Thailand will be cheaper than those in your home country, it may be worth staying a while in order to get the most out of your visit.

Spending time in Thailand makes for a fun and interesting accompaniment to the serious business of recovery. Both rehab and travel within the country are easy to arrange, and realistic on a moderate budget; most rehabs also include their own organised excursions. Even after including the cost of airfare, Thailand makes excellent sense as an affordable rehab destination if you are looking to keep your overall rehab costs down.

Frequently asked questions

Why Western addicts come to Thailand for affordable rehab treatment?

One of the biggest drawbacks to attending an inpatient treatment programme is the price. A private rehab centre in Western countries like the UK, USA, or Australia, can cost well over US$30,000 per month. For a great number of people in need of addiction recovery assistance, such costs are simply too much to bear. Yet for those willing to look a little further, alternative options are available. Overseas treatment centres can provide considerably lower costs for similar services, making rehab in Thailand an affordable option worth considering for the financially minded.

What are the features of rehab in the mid-price point?

While luxury rehab centres offer hotel-quality services for added comfort, less expensive options are available in Thailand. Clients opting for a mid-range rehab experience in Thailand will receive many of the same services, but without such an emphasis on personal luxuries, thoughtful presentation, or stylistic flourishes. By selecting an affordable option, you can expect basic but comfortable accommodation, often with the traditional Thai bamboo or wooden structure similar to a cozy 3-star boutique bungalow resort. You will have access to a pool and basic gym equipment as well as basic hotel services including laundry, daily cleaning, and meals.
