Specifically designed for men aged approximately 18-28, The Cabin Edge offers a revolutionary programme addressing addiction and behavioural issues.
Welcome to The Edge, a revolutionary addiction treatment programme that does not merely achieve recovery from a prescription drug or alcohol addiction, but instils in them a new perspective on life and enthusiasm for the future. We approach addiction by engaging young men in intense physical activity, social responsibility and a search for meaning, while incorporating The Cabin’s highly successful treatment method in a way that resonates with the young. Located in the eco-activity hub of Thailand, The Edge uses the challenges of sport and outdoor adventure (Muay Thai Boxing, Triathalon Training, Wilderness Excursions) as cornerstones of this approach. This is combined with our very own Recovery Zones addiction treatment model, an approach that combines proven psychotherapeutic methods and has been shown to achieve results in a shorter timeframe than traditional methods. The Edge is designed specifically for men aged approximately 18-28, many of whom have issues such as: - Prescription drug or alcohol abuse - Lack of direction, failure to launch - Poor academic performance - ADD/ ADHD - Depression - Trouble with law enforcement - Unsuccessful at other rehabs
Friendship and community, crucial components of recovery.
