Effective and Affordable Alcohol Addiction Treatment for Saudis at The Cabin Chiang Mai
If you’re struggling to find effective alcohol addiction treatment in Saudi Arabia, you’re not alone.
Although the production, importation and consumption of alcohol is illegal (and harshly punished) throughout the Kingdom, drinking is surprisingly common – and very risky.
Because alcohol isn’t regulated here, consuming it is dangerous. Some homemade liquors – the most common kind in Saudi Arabia – are over 90% alcohol. With alcohol content that high, you’re much more likely to develop an addiction or even get hurt, even if you don’t drink much.
And the risks don’t end there. Even if you’re drinking professionally produced, illegally imported alcohol, you’re more likely to develop an addiction due to secrecy alone. In Saudi Arabia, when you’re worried about your drinking habits, you have almost nowhere to turn for support – and the legal consequences of drinking alcohol are severe.
The bottom line? If you, or someone you love, is drinking in Saudi Arabia, it’s not only dangerous – it’s also much more likely to result in addiction.
It’s important to understand the dangers of alcohol addiction, and to get help before you sink too deep.
The Dangers of Alcohol Addiction:
Alcohol problems range in severity from occasional binge drinking to life-threatening physical addiction. Regardless of the form it takes, alcohol addiction is a chronic disorder that causes sufferers to drink uncontrollably despite widespread negative effects on their lives.
Excessive drinking can be – and often is – detrimental to relationships, finances, careers and both physical and mental health.
But what does alcohol addiction look like – and how can you spot it in yourself or others?

Our luxury treatment centre in Chiang Mai, Thailand can help you recover from alcohol abuse confidentially, in a peaceful, culturally sensitive environment where you feel safe and supported at all times.
Let’s explore what treatment at The Cabin involves.
Alcohol Addiction Treatment at The Cabin Consists of Two Main Elements:
When you stop drinking, your body may go through an alcohol detoxification process, which usually causes withdrawal symptoms. The severity of these symptoms will depend on your level of alcohol addiction. They may range from anxiety and poor sleep to uncontrollable shaking and spasms.
We have an international-standard hospital at The Cabin, staffed by a professional medical team capable of treating withdrawal symptoms – so that you’re in good hands at all times, no matter how hard detox hits you.
At this stage, you’ll also receive supervised and comprehensive treatment for mental health or physical health issues, if needed.
Addressing the psychological and behavioural symptoms of alcohol addiction is the key to long-term recovery.
This is accomplished through our culturally-sensitive Recovery Zones methodology, which uses the most effective psychotherapy treatment methods available today. Our experienced counsellors will get to the root causes of your alcohol addiction, identify your triggers and teach you coping techniques as part of a life-long relapse prevention plan.
You’ll follow a personalised programme consisting of a series of individual and group counselling sessions, mindfulness exercises and fitness therapy to achieve holistic recovery of both your body and your mind.
