Outlining The Edge’s approach

The men who come to us all have a different story. We know that the same plan doesn’t work for everyone: that’s why we tailor our programming at The Edge to each participant’s specific treatment needs.

We also believe that a young man is more than the sum of his struggles. We are committed to healing the whole person, and our multi-faceted treatment approach strengthens the mind and body, reconciling the past and claiming ownership over the future.

The Edge offers participants a supportive environment and structured weekly schedule. Through activity, encouragement, and experience, we will help you develop valuable life skills, tools for personal growth, and sustained behavioural change.

Our course of therapy can last from one to three months and relies on four primary elements:


Working with a certified, professional counsellor helps you develop more positive and powerful patterns of thinking.

We use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), mindfulness practices, and, where necessary, introduce a modern version of the 12 Steps. This has been proven to achieve breakthroughs in confronting destructive behaviours.

At The Edge, participants experience two forms of counselling—individual sessions and group work—totaling 25 hours each week.

  • One–on–One Therapy

    Upon arrival at The Edge, you are paired with a counsellor who is committed to your progress until the end of your treatment.

  • Group Therapy

    These daily sessions—facilitated by a counsellor—allow you to connect with your peers.


A dedicated daily routine of high-intensity fitness can actually kickstart brain change by producing feel-good endorphins that encourage positive emotions.

It may be new but with the guidance of a professional trainer, explore your strengths and discover what suits you best. Our programme also includes mindfulness, restful yoga, relaxation, and meditation. You’ll leave The Edge with a proud physical condition, ready for the next stage of life, nurturing both body and mind.


At our state-of-the-art fitness facilities, you can pursue:

  • Strength training
  • Traditional Thai kickboxing
  • Swimming
  • Biking
  • Horseback riding
  • Rock climbing
  • …and more.


We make the most of our location in the mountains of northern Thailand, where you will have access to jungle trails, secluded waterfalls, and fast-moving rivers.

At The Edge, we reinforce positive communication and the value of teamwork experientially: by navigating rapids while whitewater rafting, or by ziplining between ancient treetops. Not only will you create lifelong memories, but we are also certain that you’ll become a more determined, focused, and confident version of yourself.


Our programming is about developing the whole person, and part of this is finding your place in both your community and society

Through volunteering and local outreach, the Edge emphasises the importance of respect for and accountability to others around you. This aspect of our treatment is about seeing how you can contribute to the world, empathise with others, and set new goals that will shape you, your work, your relationships, and your purpose.

It’s time to live a life!

Push yourself one step further to The Edge: get in touch with us about how-together-we can start the process of building a better life.


While we present participants with exciting physical and mental challenges, life at The Edge is not designed to be a hardship.

Your personal transformation will take place in a resort-like setting, surrounded by lush green mountains and tropical gardens, and with perks like fresh, gourmet dining and regular Thai massage therapy.



When you complete the residential programme, your treatment doesn’t have to end abruptly.

Some men choose to move into a safe and less structured environment run by The Cabin Group in order to get used to the outside world again while still
receiving staff support. Others join our athletic teaching team, reaching out to new young men in trouble.

We will also enrol you in our online video aftercare
programme for six months, managed by an outpatient therapist. Stay connected with your peer support group and maintain progress from anywhere in the world, even after returning home.
