Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need rehab?
Whether you or your loved one needs rehab or individual treatment at home depends on many situations. Please give us a call so we can arrange a clinical assessment to confirm this.
How can I help my loved one?
At The Diamond Rehab Thailand we are experts in getting your loved into treatment. To start you can show your loved one our website and they will probably soon take an interest in our treatment center. If need be, we also can arrange an intervention at your home done by a professional interventionist arranged by The Diamond Rehab Thailand.
How long will it take?
This depends on the situation. E.g. does the client need a detox? Is addiction the main problem or are the underlying issues more concerning? It is important that the client finish what he/she signed up for. Overall, we advise that 6 -8 weeks in treatment is average and gives the client a good foundation to start a new life at home with the proper aftercare.
What type of rehab should I choose?
This depends on what you are looking for. The Diamond Rehab Thailand is a rehab center with high trained (therapeutic) staff and specialized in co-occurring issues. We offer a lot of individual therapy. We are located in Phuket and our rooms and other facilities are world class.
What does The Diamond treat?
The Diamond Rehab Thailand treat addiction problems such as alcohol and drugs, we also treat process addictions such as gambling, sex addiction, eating disorders and gaming. Besides the addiction we focus mainly at the underlying issues such as depression, burn out, anxiety disorder etc.
Is The Diamond Rehab Thailand licensed?
Because we moved to this new location, we had to apply for the health certificate again. The license is location based and the application is in process, this can take up to 8 months. We filled in the application and are confident we tick off all the boxes to be fully licensed by the Thai Ministry of Health in 2021.
What is your success rate?
Success rate is difficult to measure. It depends on the motivation of the client. Staying clean and sober in rehab is not difficult, the hard work will start once the client is leaving treatment and has to face the outside world with all its triggers. One thing we can promise is that we will give our clients all the tools to be successful once going home and provide them with the right aftercare.
What if support groups and other rehabs did not work in the past?
Some people need more than one treatment. This doesn’t mean that it won’t work this time. You can learn from the past and implement that into this treatment together with your focal therapist and stay clean and sober successfully and content once leaving The Diamond Rehab Thailand. Maybe you were not really open minded before and you can give it a new go.

What is rehab?
Rehab is a clinical environment where in a short period the client gets detoxed and gets educated by a lot of group sessions and one to one sessions how to coop with life outside. It’s a safe place to share and you will be surrounded by people with the same problems, that helps because you can identify with each other.
