Does anyone know the reason that they would deny anyone? I Have a friend traveling in Thailand and they have agreed to go to the monastery for detox. It wasn’t planned however due to the circumstances while he was in Thailand it is now essential. He is having a difficult time communicating over there via phone. He will be traveling there by bus and I know there’s no Internet. I would appreciate anyone’s guidance. Thank you!

If he can get himself there, I'm sure they will not turn him away. I hope it all goes well for him.

Just go there. Internet and phone are allowed after the first 5 days of detox. 1 time per week.
They will welcome him for sure.

My fiance has alcohol problem and when we contacted the monastery we were told that he should be sober for at least 7 days before coming to the monastery. Because if he has a seizure due to alcohol withdrawal they might not be able to help him. So if your friend has alcohol problem they will probably tell him the same.

Cheers,
Seda

Thank you!  He’s now has been sober so we are timing it so he arrives after at least 7 days of being sober.  The challenging part is that he is in Thailand, so we remain concerned  that he is at risk.

Thank you for your encouraging words!  We are arranging for a tour, for a few days, with delivery at the monastery.  So we will get him there.

Thank you for your encouragement.  The nun I’ve communicated seems very nice, so I’m hopeful.  Plus, I’m praying and chanting for everyone that is there now, trying to cover all basis.

It’s truly for a friend, who had an alcohol episode while traveling.   I think we’ve “resolved” as much as we can resolve. 

 

As you are more experienced, I thought before he actually goes in, to set  a video conference with friends, so we can all see him in person, and encourage.  Maybe like an intervention.  Good idea or bad?

 

As for the money, we are sending money the day before he goes in, as we’re trying to  minimize the cash he has on hands.  So, is it fair to give the amount for food, and the cab back, plus a bit more, but not much?  I’m anticipating 14 days, as I was told 14 days would be ok, longer would require another level of acceptance.  My friend has already agreed to 14 days, and his visa is good to then.

 

Namaste

Dear Maria

I recommend your friend purchase travel medical insurance to cover him for any unforeseen medical situations. It s not expensive. Sometimes Thailand immigration is cracking down on visitors without insurance.

They may ask for it.  It's akot cheaper to buy it before he travels.

Good luck 

Kevin

Kevin thank you!  Unfortunately he had not.

  We found one company that does offer it once you’re abroad.  Caremed.  

Not only is it cheaper but also Many options if you do before you travel.
