About Alastair


Alpha is owned and run by Alastair Mordey, one of the pioneers of drug and alcohol treatment in Thailand. Over 18 years of working in the substance abuse field Alastair has overseen the treatment of more than 2500 addicted people. He has worked across all four tiers of the UK drug treatment system, from drug detox to sober living. In 2010 Alastair moved to Thailand and co-founded The Cabin Chiang Mai – one of the largest drug and alcohol rehab groups outside of the US – which he ran from its inception in 2010 until 2017. As chief clinical architect of The Cabins global operations Alastair authored the treatment system Recovery Zones and developed the philosophy and methods behind The Edge – a young men’s treatment programme. Both of these treatment systems have strongly influenced the model used by many of South East Asia’s rehabs today.

Alastair is a regular contributor to print media and TV. He has featured in such publications and channels as CNN, Tatler, Channel News Asia and many more. He is also a regular speaker on the global addiction conference circuit.
