Imagine feeling at your very best every morning and not feeling tired, anxious, or depressed all the time. Imagine feeling like you can manage your mental health issues, addiction, combat cravings, and find a healthy way to cope with life’s stresses. At 180 Sanctuary, we take a holistic approach to treatment and focus on healthy living. Don’t just imagine feeling your best — THE BEST VERSION OF YOU STARTS HERE.
We believe that recovery should encompass a person’s entire well-being, therefore we treat the person as a whole. In doing so we address mental, spiritual, and physical health. The holistic approach that we take will ensure that you get every resource and tool that you need to combat every aspect of your recovery.
Obtaining good nutrition is vital to every aspect of health’ and therefore greatly affects the recovery process. Those who have experienced chronic addiction and abuse can suffer from nutritional deficiencies. This leads to an increase in their risk of serious both mental and physical health problems. Many individuals enter rehab treatment both malnourished and unhealthy. Nutritional deficiencies can worsen withdrawal symptoms, bringing discouragement and making it difficult for a person to focus while in recovery. These deficiencies might also encourage cravings that could potentially sabotage a person’s recovery progress.
Because we approach recovery with the attitude of teaching life-skills and empowering people so that they can make good decisions concerning their own health, we include nutritional counselling in our comprehensive programme with our founder, Coach Anya, who is IIN Certified Health Coach. Clients receive nutritional counselling will have a much better rate of success with their sobriety once their treatment programme is complete. Once individuals have information, they tend to make positive and permanent changes in their diets.
Rehabilitation isn’t just about detox and therapy during treatment. It’s about a complete lifestyle overhaul. At 180 Sanctuary, you’ll learn new healthy routines that you’ll take with you once you leave our facility and implement into your new lifestyle. You’ll also be able to interact with like-minded people who, like you, are practicing healthy living and avoiding toxic behaviors, making it easier for you to reintegrate into society once you leave.
A healthy and active lifestyle can repair much of the damage done to the body after prolonged negligence. It can help bone and joint health and your cardiovascular and respiratory systems. Over time, proper health can even help recovering individuals regain motor skills and balance. Exercising regularly also releases endorphins and serotonin into your body. These chemicals decrease cravings, aid in sleep, combat depression and anxiety, and help improve your overall well-being.
TRE® is an innovative series of exercises that assist the body in releasing deep muscular patterns of stress, tension, and trauma. The exercises safely activate a natural reflex mechanism of shaking or vibrating that releases muscular tension, and also calming down the nervous system. When this muscular shaking/vibrating mechanism is activated in a safe and controlled environment, the body is encouraged to return back to a state of balance. Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises (or TRE®) is based on the fundamental idea; backed by research, that stress, tension, and trauma is both psychological and physical. TRE® is designed to be a self-help tool that, once learned, can be used independently as needed throughout one’s life, thereby continuously supporting and promoting personal health and wellness.
Sound therapy includes but is not limited to, music therapy, meditation, vibration work, and brainwave entrainment. This is a popular method of alternative medicine that has evidence-based efficacy in treating a multitude of illnesses. It can be used to lower blood pressure, reduce pain, treat neurological disorders, and improve sleep. It is also an effective method of therapy for anxiety, stress, depression, mood disorders, and developmental disabilities. Sound therapy is often used in rehabilitation settings for catastrophic injuries and mental disorders.
Just like music, meditation can be enjoyed on its own or with others where you can feel a real connection with others by tapping into the same silence and source of peace at the same time. In fact, we can literally meet people on the same wavelength. Come and experience our meditation techniques which are accessible to all levels of experience.
Breathwork refers to any type of breathing exercises or techniques. Clients often perform them to improve mental, physical, and spiritual well-being. During breathwork you intentionally change your breathing pattern. There are many forms of breathwork therapy that involve breathing in a conscious and systematic way.

Pai, just a few hours outside of Thailand’s second biggest city, Chiang Mai, is an oasis that many have been dreaming about ever. Many had loved it so much that made it one of their places they just had to return to. Pai is one of those places you plan on spending only a weekend in, but end up staying weeks… Or months… Or maybe even years, which is why 180 Sanctuary decided to set this as a treatment and retreat facility. We simply loved this place and the ideal setting for recovery.
Because Pai is in the mountains, there are a tons of waterfalls. Some are cooler than others, with natural rock slides and pools to swim in! Plus, it’s just such a serene place and the drive to get there is beautiful even though it takes awhile to get to our facility. What awaits you is a welcoming sight of our impressive facility.
180 Sanctuary is truly a “home away from home.” Located in a quaint town in the northern tip of Thailand, near the Burmese border. Tucked away in the mountains, it’s surrounded by winding rivers, deep valleys, rocky cliffs, and lush rice paddies.
