Theo de Vries, 45 years old, father of three children, married to Panwadee de Vries, has lived full time in Thailand since 2012. He is considered one of the pioneers in Thailand, opening one of the first rehab centres in 2014 and making it grow into an international accredited rehab centre where he and his team treated over 1.000 clients.
In 2020 Theo decided it was time to open a smaller centre that aims to be more made to measure. "Not every client is the same, and everyone needs a different approach." Theo's favourite quote comes from Gabor Maté. "The first question is not why the addiction; it's why the pain?"
If you decide to go to The Diamond rehab center in Thailand, you will be treated as such; respectful, personalized, and above all, as a human being. Theo is aware that the success of the client's recovery starts with the person's willingness and hard work to change; excellent therapy will do the rest.
Theo created a Multi-Disciplinary Team of experts from all over the world, combined with over 75 years of helping people recovering from a life full of darkness towards a life that's worth living.
