Professional Review of Resort 12 Rehab

Resort Twelve is located in the majestic mountains of Northern Thailand and is a treatment facility that offers detoxification and residential recovery programs for LGBTQ clients who are struggling with alcohol and substance use disorders. The therapeutic specialists at Resort 12 are all experienced in treating co-occurring process disorders and dual diagnosis integrated treatment. One of the few rehabs in Thailand with an on-site medical hospital the rehab is able to facilitate medically supervised detox when required, in a luxury private hospital within the sprawling and extensive grounds of the unit.


Whilst not quite achieving full five star luxury status, Resort 12 offers the best accommodations, cuisine, and a comprehensive recovery program that specializes in LGBTQ+ treatment. For this reason we are proud to include  Resort 12 on Worlds Best Rehabs as an excellent rehab provider.


Is Resort 12 Rehab Worth It?


Resort 12, or R12 as it’s often referred to has en exceptionally palatable fee schedule for a rehab with such a great team. At a monthly cost of $14,00 USD the team behind R12 have made the facility as accessible as possible for an International client set.


Being the first truly dedicated LBGTQI Rehab Facility outside the United States was always going to attract significant attention, both positive and critical, given the mixed reputation of its mothership, The Cabin Thailand.


Despite initial setbacks and spiraling costs this facility has weathered both internal and external storms to become one of the leading LGBT Rehab facilities. Put simply, R-12 has some of the most talented and caring therapists in the LGBT recovery sector.
