After Detox – New Life Foundation

Sometimes it is possible to stay at Wat Thamkrabok after treatment to ordain as a monk or nun for a while.

However, if you have been clean and sober for at least 90-days, I would highly recommend travelling to Chiang Rai to the New Life Foundation (NLF) international recovery community, where you can stay for up to 3-months as a resident, or longer as a volunteer.

See the NLF  website at  for information about costs and sponsored scholarships.

You should contact them directly in advance to book a place.

Once you feel fit and well, you may then want to visit Thamkrabok again before you travel home. One more dose of medicine 😉
