    Rehab Thailand

    Serious Question.

    Have you been to a Rehab facility in Thailand,or know of anyone who has.?

    Its just I have done research on such places,and have found the cost is beyond many

    I've had this idea for sometime now, and not wanting to make big bucks from it more of a retirement plan.


    Please if you have nothing positive to add,please don't post.

    You will find most Rehabs treat all what you have mentioned.

    Interesting. I have found that to be different. Most have a focused client base due to group therapy activities unless it is clinical psychology but then its not really rehab.

    I think if one wanted to start a ReHab support business, its admirable.

    No I have not been to any here nor have I ever been in one for myself. I do know some friends that have entered Alcohol and Substance abuse rehab in the states. In fact one was a very dear, and still is, long time friend dating back to college. I went to a few support group meetings with him. He is clean now and all behind him. But the Rehab was a focused business for alcohol and substance abuse. Did not address Depression, Sex addicts, Anger management etc. Why I asked.

    No I do not. I would figure they would be similar in format and content. You had stated it would cover all the above and I just didn't see how that would work unless the business was clinical psychology where an individual made an appointment to discus their ailment. But that does not seem like Rehab, seemed more like Therapy

    Chico. Do you have experience to deliver rehab and to run one? Or is that going to be part of the plan? Is this aimed at foreigners or Thais? - i have no knowledge or experience just questions which anyone would have about starting a business venture.

    Have been speaking to people who are experienced in the field.

    Though I won't be getting involved in the treatment side.

    I have the land and will supply the resort,provide the transport meals.

    It will be funded by private enterprise/sponsors

    The people I'm speaking with our saying there is a need for such a place as treatment in UK,USA,Australia EU etc is very badly funded.

    The resort will be basic,nothing like the linked places, and semi rural,rather than a holiday resort.

    My original idea was based on the hospitality Industry,though thought it would be better to do for anyone, there would be workshops on cookery,and also the concept is based on a sustainable living.

    Are you catering towards the Yaba addicts or the international jet set crowd who hoover coke up their noses?

    Is this gonna be some sort of cold turkey farm for clucking crack heads or rehab for physical injuries centre or maybe PTSD sufferers??

    Be open to anyone,Its for people who don't have lots of money,and need help.

    Most Rehabs cater to people with money,and there Resorts are lavish,this isn't lavish but comfortable and focused on rehab not a holiday.

    It's catering towards addiction and anxiety disorders,and PTSD.

    Its a tranquil place that people can concentrate on themselves and there problems.

    Though will have to keep the Ex away from them.

    Got a organisation interested and a former addict from the states that is doing really good stuff in the USA,and spends a lot of time in Asia.

    Where will the tranquil place be?

    A mountain retreat with a chilled out vibe with waterfalls and coi carp swimming in a pond.

    You'd have to arrange transfer direct from the airport so the vulnerable patients don't get side tracked en route.

    Very easy to get waylaid in Los without proper guidance and support.

    I reckon twice daily yoga classes would be good to put on the itinerary. .
