Hope Rehab Centre is a drug and alcohol rehabilitation centre in Si Racha, Thailand.


The Hope Rehab Centre was founded by Simon Mott and Alon Kumsawad in 2013.[1] Mott had previously worked at The Cabin Chiang Mai rehab centre, serving as that facility's head counsellor[2] and manager.[3] In late 2014, musician Pete Doherty was treated at the facility. After his time there, he launched the Peter Doherty Hope Initiative to provide funding for other patients at the centre.[4] The centre is part of a trend of medical tourism,[5] attracting many of its patients from overseas.[6]

Facility and programs[edit]

The Hope Rehab Centre is located on a seven-acre estate in Si Racha[5] near the Gulf of Thailand.[6] It contains 35 beds and is licensed by the Thailand Ministry of Health, the United Kingdom's Federation of Drug and Alcohol Practitioners and the U.S.-based Association for Addiction Professionals.[1] The centre uses modern and holistic rehabilitation methods[4] and treats a variety of drug, alcohol, and process addictions.[6] Methods include a twelve-step program, cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, and engagement in health and fitness activities like yoga, swimming, pilates, tai chi and others.[5] Meditation, sessions of recovery coaching, intensive counselling and periodic tourist outings are other activities that patients may engage in. The length of the program varies from short-term stays (30 days)[6] to longer-term stays (60 to 90 days or more).[1][5]
