Effective and Affordable Captagon Addiction Treatment at The Cabin Chiang Mai
Captagon is the brand name of a synthetic stimulant called fenethylline, which was first produced in 1961 to treat hyperactivity and depression. The drug was banned in 1986 due to its addictive qualities, but the drug is often cheaply replicated in home labs and sold on the streets as a stimulant drug.
A form of amphetamine drug, Captagon use brings increased energy and concentration levels, improved mood and decreased appetite. Many people take the drug to stay awake and alert for long periods of time, or even as a weight-loss supplement. However, the drug is highly addictive, and as tolerance builds, the user needs more and more to produce the same effects.
When someone tries to quit taking Captagon, it usually doesn’t last – the strong withdrawal symptoms, fatigue and drug cravings usually cause them to seek out the drug to combat these feelings.

- Increased energy levels despite not getting much sleep
- Severe headaches and/or blurred vision

- Decreased appetite and/or drastic weight loss
- Rapid breathing
- Dilated pupils
- Anxiety/ nervousness
Long-Term Effects of Captagon Abuse:

Captagon withdrawal symptoms include psychomotor agitation or retardation, fatigue, unpleasant dreams, increased appetite and both insomnia and hypersomnia.
These symptoms are not life-threatening, but they do cause discomfort. That’s why we offer 24-hour care and support from our experienced medical and counselling teams who can help walk you through this uncomfortable process. These symptoms only last for a few days, and then the full treatment programme can begin.
At The Cabin Chiang Mai, we use a highly effective treatment model called Recovery Zones to help you get to the root of your addiction. You’ll be treated by a team of experienced addiction counsellors and psychologists using a combination of proven counselling and therapy techniques that address your specific needs and circumstances.
