Take The Next Step

There are many pathways for recovery from addiction, providing endless possibilities for a truly fulfilling life. Our mission is to help people identify their own personal path within a supportive, tranquil environment and engage with a course of action for their own successful, meaningful life in recovery.

Set in the heart of Northern Thailand, The Next Step, Chiang Mai is a unique therapeutic environment, dedicated to recovery from addiction. Whether joining us direct from a primary rehab or following long or short periods of abstinence, our affordable, sober living community has been cultivated to nurture successful, long-term recovery.  We specialise in recovery, because sobriety alone is not enough for a joyful, fulfilling life.

Sober Living Can Change Your Life

You, or someone you know, may struggle with alcohol, a substance abuse, or a behavioural pattern such as gambling, sex, food or love.  The Next Step’s Secondary Care, Sober Living and Arrested Relapse programs are designed to provide long-term solutions to addiction, transitioning text book tools learned in early recovery into every day, real life.

Our 40 years experience gained in the fields of addiction and mental healthcare provides the foundation for our contemporary approach today. This invaluable insight tells us that amazing things happen in recovery when we know we are not alone. At The Next Step you become part of the family, joining our international community, supported by our friendly Thai and Western staff.

We passionately believe that recovery, not sobriety, is the key to finding true purpose and meaning in your life, and at The Next Step this means engaging in a ‘money-can’t-buy’ experience, without it costing the earth.

We recognise that addiction is progressive, and recovery is a life-long commitment, one day at a time.  Successful recovery can bring life-changing results, but it requires a deep-down passion to get well, and the willingness to discover your true self through vital connections with others. Together we tailor a recovery pathway that is completely relevant to you, through Recovery in Action, Emotional Sobriety and Purpose & Meaning mentoring.

The Next Step can inspire change you never thought was possible. We remind you that every day in recovery is a precious gift, and one that, without recovery, you may not have had. You haven’t come this far to only come this far.
