Partnering with Addiction Professionals to Ensure Client Success
For Healthcare Professionals
At The Cabin, we ensure your patient receives the highest quality of care. We are licensed by the Thai Ministry of Health as a registered hospital, and our clinicians are all accredited by their national or state regulatory bodies:
- British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP)
- UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)
- Federation of Drug &Alcohol Professionals (FDAP)
- Royal College of Psychiatrists (FRCPsych UK)
- RPC (Canadian Profession Counsellors Association)

Our medical team is led by Thailand’s most prominent addiction specialist psychiatrist, Dr Suttipan Takkapaijit.
Dr Suttipan oversees a 24-hour medical team of 10 nurses who are fully committed to the patients’ treatment and recovery process. Our resident clinical psychologists assist the referral and assessment process.
Our holistic treatment approach at The Cabin is led by our programme director Alastair Mordey, a renowned speaker and innovator in the addiction field, specifically in regards to youth addiction treatment and the use of cardio training and adventure sports in addiction treatment.
Alastair began his career as a youth worker, and pioneered the use of powerlifting and long distance cycling for addicted people accessing treatment services in North London. His projects received funding from a variety of government initiatives, and in 2009 Alastair was main speaker at the UK National Treatment Agency annual conference, where he presented the findings of his pilot study into the effects of cardio training on people in recovery. His work was influential in the current direction of treatment policy in the UK.
Our team of senior clinicians are trained in multiple disciplines of counselling and psychotherapy, from EMDR, to Gestalt and psychodynamic. Our counsellors are also specialist trained in dealing with substance abuse, sex addiction, gambling addiction, food disorders and steroid abuse.
Located on the lush banks of the Ping River in Thailand’s northern capital, Chiang Mai, our inpatient centre is a world away from the trigger-filled environment in which addiction thrives. Our luxury facilities and attentive staff ensure our clients have a restorative space in which they can focus completely on recovery.
The Edge offers a variety of therapies including:
- Small group sessions
- Family week
- Nutrition consultation
- One to one counselling
- Muay Thai boxing
- Triathlon training (includes swimming and cycling tuition)

- Vipassana (mindfulness) meditation
Quality of Care and Admission
Every patient at The Cabin is assigned a primary therapist, who also works with their family and their referring professional. Our dedicated Relationship Manager assists with accurate and timely reporting to all referring health professionals.
In some cases your patient might have unique needs that require special attention. Call ahead and speak with an admissions coordinator to determine if The Cabin can accommodate your patient’s specific situation.
Once your patient is admitted, you will be able to work with The Cabin closely to ensure your patient’s progress.
All patients admitted to The Cabin must undergo a routine assessment process designed to help us understand the patients presenting factors that can help us provide a high level of care. This includes issues such as co-occurring disorders and pre-existing medical conditions.
We will take every precaution to ensure your patient receives the highest level of care to begin the path to recovery.
