Effective and Affordable Hash Addiction Treatment for Saudis at The Cabin Chiang Mai
Hashish, or hash, is essentially a concentrated form of marijuana – and it comes in many forms.
It’s made from the resins of the cannabis plant which are collected and compressed to create a hard, dry and crumbly substance that is often dark brown in colour. Sold in sticks, balls or blocks, the hash is then broken down and smoked.
You can also find the drug sold as an oil – generally in small glass jars, with an amber to dark brown liquid inside. Most commonly, users put a few drops on a cigarette to ingest the drug. The drug can also be cooked into food.
Similar to marijuana, many people think that hashish is a harmless drug that is not addictive, but that is simply not true. Many people are addicted to hashish and are suffering the consequences.

Hash Addiction Treatment at The Cabin Chiang Mai
In many cases, hash addiction is a reaction to an underlying disorder – and it’s important that any co-occurring disorder is diagnosed before beginning treatment for addiction.
At the Cabin Chiang Mai, our specialised addiction counsellors will work in collaboration with psychologists using our Recovery Zones programme to help you to heal. Recovery Zones is a unique treatment model that varies for each client, pulling from a variety of proven techniques including a secular version of the 12 Steps, cognitive behavioural therapy and mindfulness.
These treatments help you to understand and identify your own relapse triggers, develop alternative means to cope with stress and anxiety and sustain a sober lifestyle. The programme also provides relapse prevention, sober time management and aftercare planning.
We combine this psychological treatment with a holistic health and wellness programme that includes yoga, meditation, fitness and massage therapy.
