The Hills is an exclusive 20 bed inpatient treatment centre for a wide range of addiction and co-occurring issues with the aim to create a healthy mind and body. We are located in the beautiful foothills of Northern Thailand in the vibrant city of Chiang Mai, about 30 minutes from the airport. The peaceful and serene environment has been specifically designed for healing with our client’s privacy in mind as the secluded mountainside location assures the comforts of 5-star resorts as well as anonymity and privacy, which we take very seriously.
Travelling overseas to ‘the land of smiles’ for treatment allows clients to be at far reach from their triggers. The Hills boasts an onsite hospital with 24-hour nursing (the only centre in Thailand to do so), private luxurious villas, delicious Thai and Western cuisine, individual and group therapy sessions, fitness, mindfulness and massage therapy, excursions and aftercare.
At The Hills, we want to ensure you are well taken care of from the time you make the first call to us until you are back home. We work hard to ensure all clients’ needs are met and recognise that each client is an individual with unique needs. Embarking on detox and inpatient treatment is a big step for you and your family and we want you to know you are in the hands of professionals who will support you every step of the way.
The Hills is the only treatment centre in Thailand with an onsite hospital. We are able to offer clients medically supervised detox in the comfort of your own room with nursing support 24 hours a day. Detox is not required by each client and for those who need detox, your needs will be assessed by Thailand’s foremost expert on addiction – Dr Suttipan. The medical team will ensure you are as comfortable as possible while being pampered by Thai hospitality.
