Addiction Treatment Centre
banyantree21 is an addiction rehab treatment centre, we provide 21 days residential immersion in traditional Eastern local and cultural expressions of kindness and healing, combined with a fresh look at classic Western psychological addiction strategies, without excessive indulgence in its perceived origins or manifestations.
It is a unique addiction rehab treatment centre facility located in the ancient Kingdom of Lanna, Chiang Mai, northern Thailand, in a naturally beautiful mountain valley.
An alternative to historic treatment centre or rehabilitation systems, we move away from over-analysing and excessive thinking, accepting that you are the expert on your suffering.
We have re-kindled some ancient and traditional herbal remedies in our rehabilitation programme and practices specific to the Lanna Kingdom, and combined them with some of the more useful contemporary Western approaches to achieve the best of both worlds.
Alcohol and drug addiction, along with many behavioural habits are treated here with a simple yet thoughtful programme of action that is precise and gentle, practical and achievable. You will have an experience that will stay with you, and pick up a toolbox that you can return to, wherever you are in the world.
At our addiction rehab treatment centre, you can start to benefit from this experience straight away: after a brief assessment you could be here in just a couple of days!

Mindfulness Addiction Treatment
“Wellness is not so much a treatment, more a practice”
We often tell ourselves that we don’t know what mindfulness is. Get you! You are looking for help due to your addiction problem. Why are you seeking help? Simply because you have felt the negative impact of it’s manifestations in your life AND have tried, without success, to control it. In fact, when you try your hardest, it seems to get worse, a bit like ‘trying’ to get to sleep.
So to get here, you HAVE ALREADY practiced mindfulness with your addiction issue, (be that drugs, alcohol, relationships, shopping or something else) and discovered at least three things.
1. The addiction that you have used to regulate the way you feel no longer works.
2. There MAY BE a way out of this mess.
3. You want to try another way.
Banyantree21 is another way and that way is rooted in mindfulness practices.
