Suffering from addiction?

We can help

mindfulness program

New Life Foundation is a non-profit therapeutic practice center in northern Thailand. We offer a supportive learning space for individuals looking for help with anxiety. In addition to core daily practices of mindfulness, meditation, community and yoga, our program offers one-on-one therapy and group workshops based on various modalities.

Our philosophy is to offer quality treatment at substantially lower prices than in your home countries. You are only charged for the actual cost of your stay.  We are a world class non-profit organisation that has been set up to help people like you to overcome your suffering and start living again.

therapy (1)


Our therapists are, above all, kind and caring individuals. We offer a range of evidence-based modalities that help those suffering from addiction including Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Mindfulness Based Relapse Prevention, EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing), and more. You will work with two therapists every week to find what works for you.

Workshop 2


Our qualified therapists will guide you through a program built on principles from positive psychology and the Eightfold Path. In 5 weekly workshops, tackle self-love, relationships, identity/values, boundaries, communication and more. You’ll experiment with art therapy, nonviolent communication and compassionate sharing.



We believe that understanding our mind is the key to overcoming anxiety. You will learn to recognize your thoughts and emotions without attaching to them. Silent meditations are available daily as well as body scans, guided meditations on forgiveness, lovingkindness and more. You will learn to bring mindfulness off the cushion and into your daily life.

yoga (1)


At New Life you can choose to start your day with yoga, practice in the afternoon, or both. Our experienced instructors plan lessons suitable for all levels, so whether you’re an experienced yogi or just starting out, you’ll fit right in. Classes range in a variety of styles so you can choose the pace that fits you.

My mentality when I came to New Life was 'if this doesn't work I'll finally just kill myself'. I felt I had tried everything. I was at death's door after 20 years of substance abuse, psychiatric units, homelessness and rehabs. My family realised after years of trying that they couldn't help me. I realised at New Life that my actions were a result of a lot of untreated trauma.

I chose New Life because of affordability. New Life was recommended to me as a place to go to after I got clean. I found meditation to be a huge turning point for me as I had so much fear of my mind. Workshops and therapy helped me respect and love myself. I learned work ethic by being given responsibility with managing the cow team which I loved so much.

Now my life is far beyond anything I could ever have imagined, love with my beautiful fiancee who I met at New Life, our baby who has made everything even better, a healthy happy life, REAL happiness, responsibility, my family back in my life. I can hold my head high with no shame. I'm sober and clean 4 years now. Life is tough and full of challenges but thanks to New Life I have self love, resilience, values, strength and courage. I have so much gratitude for New Life, I can't put it into words.
