As part of The Cabin Addiction Services Group, The Cabin Sydney has privileged access to two of the world’s top residential rehab facilities. Considered the ‘gold standard’ in addiction treatment, residential rehab, otherwise known as inpatient treatment, is the best option to achieve lasting recovery from substance and process addictions.

Below we provide information on our fully licensed, luxury residential rehab facilities in Thailand, and offer a comparison between inpatient and outpatient treatment options.

Outpatient vs Inpatient – Which is right for me?

If you are planning to enter addiction treatment, it is important to understand the difference between inpatient and outpatient treatment centres.

An inpatient centre, also known as a residential rehab facility, requires the client to attend a live-in programme, typically for a minimum of 28 days. Considered the ‘gold standard’ in addiction treatment, inpatient facilities provide 24 hour access to care and a recovery setting free from the stresses, triggers, and toxic habits of the client’s regular environment.

An outpatient facility like The Cabin Syndey, on the other hand, allows clients to attend meetings and counselling sessions on a daily or weekly basis, receiving support and treatment while still living at home and continuing their normal daily activities. Outpatient programmes, also known as ‘dayhabs’, are geared toward clients who are considered ‘high functioning’ and do not require concentrated medical supervision. These clinics allow clients to receive much of the psychological therapy offered in residential rehabs, while still meeting work and family responsibilities.

In some cases, a client may benefit from treatment at both inpatient and outpatient facilities. In these situations, clients will first attend one of our inpatient centres, The Cabin Chiang Mai or The Edge, before continuing stepped-down treatment at an outpatient clinic.

Each person suffering from addiction has a unique situation, which is why it is so important to be assessed by a licensed substance abuse counsellor before choosing between inpatient and outpatient treatment. The Cabin Sydney can provide a full assessment and will recommend the style of treatment that best suits your needs.

Payment Options – Insurance and Superannuation

We have experience helping clients with direct billing or reimbursement through multiple insurance providers and have successfully helped other clients who have used these means to fund treatment.

We are also able to assist clients with the process to access superannuation funds to pay for treatment based on the set of guidelines and requirements that need to be met. We are able to assist clients and help guide them through this process successfully.
