Comprehensive Substance Abuse Treatment with Alastair Mordey

Welcome to The Mental Breakdown and Psychreg Podcast! Today, Dr. Berney and Dr. Marshall interview Alastair Mordey, a certified and accredited addiction Counsellor with over 15 years of experience working in the addiction treatment field. Over the years Alastair has worked in the entire range of settings from street outreach and frontline services to the management of residential units. In 2010 Alastair moved to Thailand and co-founded The Cabin Chiang Mai, which became a multi-national treatment provider – The Cabin Addiction Services Group which now has nine facilities in five different countries.

Alastair is the author of the Cabin group’s clinical method ‘Recovery Zones’ – an ‘all addictions’ model used to treat both chemical and process addictions. Recovery Zones imparts 12 Step abstinence principles using secular terminology and is augmented by mindfulness meditation (or Vipassana) which is native to South East Asia. Alastair is also well known as a specialist in working with men. In 2016 Alastair pioneered The Edge, which was the first rehab in the world to treat addiction and trauma in young men (18-30) by using Muay Thai kick boxing and Triathlon training.
