This edition of ‘The Review Show’ offers a world exclusive, George Williams talks to Ian Lyons, Project Leader at Breathing Space Thailand, an international drug and alcohol rehabilitation center located in a world-class resort setting in the ancient city of Chiang Mai, Thailand.

The interview discusses the real need for lifestyle change in the search for recovery, and challenges the differences between western and eastern philosophy.
We also learn just how Breathing Space Thailand has created a treatment program unlike anything else in the world and how they offer help using various techniques and its pioneering animal assisted therapy with elephants, in order to help overcome addiction and achieve emotional well being.

Ian discusses alternative treatments to how we approach recovery, challenging these alternative methods for recovery and how the environmental and spiritual factors in Asia can influence treatment. And ask the question, can ‘non-medical’ therapy work?
