At Miracles Asia, you can expect the entire admissions process to be streamlined and transparent every step of the way.

Many team members are in recovery themselves, which makes the conversations very relaxed and open, as they have been in the same spot you or your loved one is in and know exactly how it feels.

Read on to learn more about what you can expect with each phase of the admissions process, from your initial assessment to your arrival at our facility in Thailand.

Free Assessment calls

Your admission begins with free & confidential call assessment calls with our team.

During these calls, you will cover a broad range of topics, and in most cases they generally take 15 to 20 minutes to complete.

The Admissions Manager may ask the following questions during your initial phone calls:
Which substance or behaviors are affecting your life?
How much are you using daily?
How long has that been the typical pattern of usage?
Have you received any form of treatment previously?
Are you currently taking any prescribed medications?
Depending on your current situation and other factors, there may be additional calls before confirming your approval to ensure that you receive the treatment and care needed to enjoy a full and healthy recovery.
Our primary goal is to make Miracles Asia the last inpatient facility that you, or your loved one will ever need to visit.
Miracles Asia is about more than bottom lines on monthly reports, or keeping the facility at maximum capacity...

If you get approved for admission to our rehab in Thailand, it's because we believe that the program will be your best chance to fully overcome your addiction, as well as achieve the goals you have for the rest of your life.

Admissions Process at a Glance

During your assessment calls, you or your loved ones together with our admissions team will assess the benefit of attending our residential rehab facility. If approved,a start date will be scheduled, then all you need to do is book your flights to Thailand.

At The Airport
You will be personally picked up off the tarmac and brought through a special immigration lane. The fast track concierge will bring you directly to our waiting car & you'll have a short 10 minute drive to the Miracles Asia facility. 

On Arrival
When you arrive at Miracles Asia, our staff will review some paperwork with you, show you around the facility and help you settle in.

If you were to arrive very drunk, the Clinical Team may feel that you need medically supervised detox; you might spend your first night or two in one of our partner hospitals, where their medical teams will ensure you're stable and comfortable.

Our staff members will remain with you during this time. 

Preparing for Rehab

It would help to let friends and family know your decision before you start the admission process to an addiction treatment center. By doing this, you'll be able to share your news before people you care about hear it through the grapevine.

However, it's up to you to decide whether to tell them or keep your privacy and explain that you'll be away for a while. You can ask for help watching your home or assisting with your finances by letting others know.

Asking for help is a great way to involve people you care about in your significant change, as they won't necessarily be present throughout your rehabilitation. Finally, tie up any loose ends at home. Prepare everything for your absence, including ensuring that any utilities, rent, and loans are covered.

If necessary, alert your landlord or neighbors that you will be away for an extended time. Also, you should find trustworthy care or boarding for your pets and plants.

Accepting the situation

Look within yourself and honestly ask why you're going to rehab. Don't waste your time and money completing a rehab program without fully committing to recovery and ongoing sobriety.

Outline on paper or mentally rehearse your goals for yourself. What do you hope to gain from treatment? Is there anything that you are not willing to do for your recovery?

Don't get too worried if you feel very anxious and overwhelmed. These feelings are too expected & are more common than you think. Instead, try to acknowledge your anxiety, sit with it for a while, and then continue to move forward, knowing there's nothing wrong with that.

Invite change

Admission to rehab in Thailand might seem challenging, so be prepared to open up to a different side of yourself, spiritually and emotionally, that you may not be very familiar with.

Admission to an addiction treatment center requires you to put your heart into it and sincerely desire the change it will bring, even if it means letting go of your old ways of dealing with life in a new way.

Keep your expectations in check

While you've decided to overhaul your life and kick your addiction, the rehabilitation process can be gradual and often seem daunting.

Checking Into Rehab

When you start admission into a treatment center in Thailand, leave forbidden items at home.

Although all rehab centers vary regarding things you can and can't bring with you, many everyday items are not allowed. The following should be left behind unless you are explicitly told otherwise by a staff member at your chosen rehab center:
Alcohol and other drugs (including mouthwash that contains alcohol).
Pornographic material.
Weapons of any kind. 
Musical instruments. (Don't worry, we have some onsite)
Outside food, drink, herbal products, and vitamins.
Excessive makeup, jewelry, and offensive or revealing clothing.
Organic substances of any kind.

What To Bring With You

Prescription Medication
You must provide a detailed list of current medications to the Admissions team during your assessment calls before arrival. Any medication must include a prescription from your local doctor. The clinical team will keep it safely stored and provide it when necessary.

Depending on the type and volume of medication you are currently taking, the Psychiatrist at Miracles Asia may need to review your existing prescriptions to ensure the treatment you receive is optimal. This consultation does incur additional costs.
Personal Mementos
Objects such as photos, books, or journals are a great way to stay motivated and focused on your goals during your stay with us.

Casual Clothing
Phuket is a tropical island, so every location you visit outside of the rehab center is very laid-back. Most people wear shorts, T-Shirts, and Polo style shirts. We suggest you bring loose-fitting clothing to be as comfortable as possible.

It is customary in Thailand not to wear your shoes inside. Around the facility, you will be most comfortable wearing toe sandals or flip-flops.

Exercise Clothing
What you typically wear to the gym or regular exercise is okay for your three weekly visits to Thaiyapura.

The facility has an Olympic swimming pool, tennis courts, free weights, cardio machines, wet and dry sauna, and hot and cold plunge pools. In addition, there is a shop onsite to purchase extra clothing.

Personal Hygiene Items
There may be limitations on what you can bring on your flight to Thailand. However, there are plenty of local options to purchase these during your first week.

Personal Devices & Computers
You can bring your smartphone, iPad, and laptop so you can remain in touch with friends and family during your stay. As most of our guests are business owners or high-level executives, we understand that time to be still able to function online is important.

Spending Money
You will need cash for snacks, soft drinks, cigarettes, or vapes. Generally, most guests can get by very comfortably with $35-$50 per week as the cost of living in Thailand is much lower to Western countries.
This list may vary depending on the type of treatment you are receiving. Please discuss this with the Admissions Team before your arrival at Miracles Asia to avoid disappointment or confusion.
