The PARC ~ Phuket Addiction Recovery Clinic is located in Southern Thailand, on the world renowned tropical paradise Island of Phuket.
We’re physically located in the side the lush rainforest mountain ridge that lies through the whole Island of Phuket, like it’s spine. We’ve got beautiful views down over Kathu Lakes and the surrounding villages. This means our modern Thai Villa Mansion is blessed with stunning surroundings in a tranquil and scenic setting. It truly is a beautiful, comfortable and safe space to recover. It is also in a completely private road at the end of street heading up into the mountain and therefore cut off from any passing traffic, essentially ensuring our complete confidentiality and privacy.
The PARC is an English speaking, International facing, person orientated, professionally managed, residential treatment experience where our residents get to leave their daily stresses and temptations behind, whilst they focus entirely on their recovery journey.
We understand that this may be your first and only chance at residential rehab treatment, and we are 100% committed to ensuring you get the best opportunity to achieve lasting recovery. Our program is designed to lead you through the process that will show you how to stop and stay stopped, even (especially) once you’ve returned home.
Our magnificent Thai villa is spacious and ensures our residents have plenty of space and opportunity to let go of their addictive illness, shifting into healthy living and then genuine recovery. We pride ourselves on having a permanent staffing presence in residence and being very hands on allowing us to offer a program that can be moulded to serve our residents in a unique and individual style.
At The PARC, we offer:
Our unique 12 step intensive treatment program – Our self-developed treatment program operates using a combination of Group work with a person-centered approach, meeting the residents needs where they’re at and incorporating the most reputable treatment standards alongside the opportunities that Thailand has to offer towards addiction treatment.
You will develop close therapeutic relationships with our dynamic and diverse team throughout treatment and we will work with you to develop a program that gives you the best possible chance of thriving while you enjoy the rest of your life in healthy recovery.
We offer a very strong 12 step (non-religious) approach, nicely complemented with a holistic Mind, Body & Spirit philosophy, which leads for a full treatment plan that’s equally enjoyable as it is fulfilling and effective.
New Freedom & a New Happiness – The two Founders of The PARC have 35 years of Recovery between them and significant global experience helping people from many countries, cultures, religions (or lack of), gender and sexuality. Add into this the credibility of all our clinical staff and we’re able to deliver an effective program that works particularly well with addictions and dependancy issues. It is their goal to continuously improve upon the clinical program and they’re both innovative and flexible to ensure that everyone receives the perfect treatment plan. It is with this in mind that we believe we’re leaning towards creating one of the most effective treatment programs in the world (certainly in this price range), with the energy and enthusiasm to make sure all of our residents succeed in realising lasting recovery.
We’re passionate about our work and we’re committed to making a huge difference the lives of our residents. We want them to succeed after just one treatment episode with us at The PARC and we are against the rotating door policy of repeatedly receiving clients’ back after they’ve relapsed. We would much rather our residents didn’t relapse and our success is then passed along one graduate to another, rather than to depend upon returning clients to generate extra revenue. We’re sure you’re going to be highly satisfied with the progress you or your loved one makes whilst under our care.
Exceptional global location on Phuket Island – Phuket is known as the Mecca of health and wellness around the world, and yet there genuinely is nowhere else in the world like Phuket. It really is unique and perfect for our needs as a treatment provider and to you as a treatment recipient.
The PARC offers the serenity of the rainforest Mountains with tree top views over the surrounding villages and lakes. Furthermore, we dedicate time each week to chill out either on one of Phuket’s world famous magnificent beaches, or around our own pool.
Because of Phuket’s status as an International Airport, getting here is easily achieved direct or with only one other airport transit. Phuket is the most developed part of Thailand and could be considered en par with Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Hong Kong or Bangkok for First World Facilities and networks.
Modern and spacious Rooms – We want you to feel at home during your residency at The PARC and to experience the hospitality for which Thailand, AKA “The Land of Smiles” is renowned. All our guest bedrooms are tastefully decorated in a Western / Thai fusion and our complex also features 2 lounges (one indoor, one outdoor), 2 group rooms, 2 kitchens (one the main one run by our in house Chef, the second is used by the Residents for their own snacks, tea, coffee, etc), exterior and interior one to one and small group spaces, our swimming pool and gardens, and plenty of other spaces all around the villa. We’re situated in an end of road driveway, on the top of a hill, without any passing traffic, with grand views over the Kathu Valley.
All of our bedrooms have air-conditioning, en-suite bathrooms, WiFi, Smart TVs (loaded with Netflix, YouTube, etc), daily housekeeping, laundry, and are fully furnished.
We always receive positive comments about all of our bedrooms and indeed the whole villa. It really is a lovely place to recover.
Highly specialised diet and nutrition – A diet that is based largely on healthy, nutritious and delicious foods will rapidly kick start dopamine production back into the bodies of our residents, giving them a helping hand through the detoxification process and positively launching them into early recovery, rebuilding their bodies, often ravaged by alcohol and narcotics. We cannot stress the importance behind healthy eating and how it connects with the healthy mind. If someone is going to eat junk food all of their life, it may be not surprise that their self esteem and values are challenges too. By using the cliche “My body is my temple” as a slogan for healthy diets, we can rapidly improve the recovery rate. We have our own “in-House” Chef, who engages with our residents to best understand their specific diets and tastebuds, and we operate a balance between Western menus as well as Thai meals. Don’t worry, we don’t have anything too spicy, unless you specifically want it that way.
Fitness & Movement Therapy – Regular exercise helps lift mood and decreases pain sensitivity through the release of endorphins in the brain, as well as increasing energy and confidence by resulting in a fitter, stronger body and mind. Whether you want to lose weight or gain muscle, if you want to build cardio endurance or strength, our Fitness & Movement program will permit you to achieve precisely what you’re looking for and to push you even further beyond what you expected your capabilities to be prior to arriving. We have different disciplines scheduled for different days of the week, including activities based in our pool, on our rooftop workout space, using the local hills or swimming in the open sea. Our Movement Therapists will never push you beyond your capabilities or force you to do anything you don’t want to do. We don’t operate like that. You’re encouraged to stretch yourself further each day / week, but never beyond your capabilities or ambitions.
Daily holistic activities – From daily early morning mindfulness and yoga activities on our open aired rooftop space, through to intense workouts, sturdy hill climbs or gentle strolls, we will keep you busy on a physical level. We believe in the many benefits of keeping our residents active and engaged. Whilst we do balance the week out with down time on Sundays (as a day of rest), we will do our best to make sure you fall straight asleep each and every night, satisfied with all the progress you’ve made that day. We believe in the magic of mindfulness and wellness, (also known as meditation) towards assisting your spirit to recover and your mind to open up to great future that lies ahead of you. Whilst we do not endorse any specific religions here at The PARC, we do respect anyone with their own religious requirements and we will equally honour someone who wants to practice their religion as we do someone who does not cafe for religion at all. We work with atheists, agnostics, believers and worshippers alike.
Thai Buddhism & Temples – Thailand is known for its unique form of Buddhism, which is a mixture of Hinduism iconography alongside more traditional Buddhism beliefs, teachings and understandings, with heaps of “be kind to each other” added in for good measure. Furthermore, Thailand is known for their glorious Buddhist temples, and Phuket is no exception, with magnificent Golden Temples and enormous Statues of Buddha all around the island. We will have opportunities with one of our local Temples for our residents who so choose, to be invited to join in for meditation and mindfulness instruction from monks. This mindfulness, or rather meditation, helps us learn how to quiet our busy minds and concentrate on the present moment, which is a really useful tool when conquering addictions.
Sea and land-based excursions – We believe in mixing fun and laughter alongside the intensity of our treatment program and therefore we’ve set aside Saturdays as a day out to explore our magnificant surroundings and have some enjoyment. The destination is configured depending upon the dynamics of the group on a week by week basis. Our weekly excursions make the most of our location on the beautiful Island of Phuket, with its numerous activities designed for the families that come to the beautiful Island all year round. We have access to both land and sea excursions, as well as opportunities to hang out with Elephants in their sanctuary, go swimming under Waterfalls, Go-Karting, Quad Biking / ATV, trekking and hiking through the jungle, Zip Line, Bungee Jumping, playing in the Waterpark, diving, snorkelling, kayaking and canoeing, and many other adventures that the Island has to offer. That said, more often than not the residents choose to relax on one of Phuket’s beautiful beaches and catch up on some vitamin D.
Affordable fees – The PARC offers a unique, intensive, and innovative program unlike anything else available anywhere in the World. Simply put, you will struggle to find anything “like for like” comparable to this level of detail and the dedication of our staff towards our resident’s success anywhere near this cost, anywhere else in the world. If you do, then please let us know and we’ll see how we can price match it.
We will always do our best to help you have the greatest rehab experience possible, and so sometimes we’ve been know to stretch out the treatment we can offer to a little longer, to help our resident’s recovery chances improve even further.
Onsite medical care and detox as required – On arrival, all clients are given the opportunity to have a medical check-up by our doctor. If required, the doctor will draw up a detox plan and discuss it with you. The Doctor can provide medication if required, under the agreement with the Therapy Team that can minimise any discomfort or anxiety. Medical Nursing staff are available to be on-call 24 hours per day if required. Please note that all Medical and Detox costs are included in our price, aside from the small minority of very severe cases (usually long term alcoholics experiencing the delirium tremors – DTs) who require 24/7 nursing care, which has an additional charge.
Aftercare – The PARC, it’s Founders and all of its Therapeutic Team are absolutely committed to our residents going on to achieve long-lasting recovery. After all, that’s what you’re paying us for. So we will remain in touch with all our residents once they leave us and can connect them up to localised support groups, local counsellors or other approved Practitioners wherever possible. We want to see you achieve. We want our residents to achieve lasting recovery and we’ll always do what we can to help with this goal in mind. We understand that our best source of marketing is always a referral from a previous resident and so therefore we really do want to see you succeed.
Relapse Guarantee Policy – We believe in our treatment programs but in particular we believe that our robust 12 week program is so strong that we have the faith to promise you that should a resident relapse within 6 months of successfully graduating the full 3 months stay, that they can return back to us at no extra cost for 28 days to top themselves up. We don’t make this promise lightly. We’ve thought long and hard about how this can impact us financially as a business, running on small margins already. But the conclusion we’ve come to is that a) we seriously believe in our unique combination of components that make our treatment program so strong and b) we genuinely want you to succeed and not have to come back to us (or anywhere else). Basically, we care a great deal about you and your ongoing successful recovery journey – lasting recovery.
Please note, to qualify for the Relapse Guarantee Policy the full 12 week program must be purchased in full prior to admission. That said, most Residents stay for 2 months, and the minimum time we’ll admit someone is 28 days so as to maintain the integrity of the group within the house.
Extra weeks may be purchased in discussion with the Admissions team or the Treatment Director.
Airport pick-up – As standard, one of our staff will meet you at Phuket International Airport (HKT) upon your arrival and transport you in a private vehicle to The PARC, so you can relax and know you will be in safe hands from the moment you arrive. Special arrangements can also be made to meet our clients anywhere in the world and escort them to us safely, without arrest, hospitalisation or unnecessary intoxication.
We will provide you with all the details you’ll need prior to your flights departure so as to make sure your arrival is straight forwards and stress free, including all the relevant information about immigration, visas, vaccines (not needed), and the best routes to fly. We have a long standing relationship with an Account Manager at Dial-A-Flight who has many years of experience assisting clients with our particular needs, if you need help booking your flights.
The whole admission process is designed to be swift and straightforward. Call or email now for a no-obligation chat with one of our friendly admissions team about treatment options for you or your loved one. We will help you take care of all the details.
We’re here to help. We’re happy to help.
