Luxury rehab centers offer a variety of programs, including holistic care, that goes beyond the traditional treatment options offered by basic rehab centers. The secluded, peaceful setting, spa-like amenities, and comprehensive integrated approach to recovery can help individuals take the first step towards long-term sobriety.
Benefits of Luxury Drug and Alcohol Rehab
While expensive, luxury drug and alcohol rehab centers are an important first step towards sobriety. These centers emphasize an integrated approach to care that is designed to help individuals not only address their physical addictions to drugs and alcohol, but also the emotional trauma that often underpins addiction.
The goal with this type of treatment is to create a shift in an individual’s mind that moves them away from an existence driven by trauma, past anxieties and fears. Rather than turning to drugs or alcohol, individuals learn healthy coping mechanisms like yoga, meditation and daily exercise, rather than drugs or alcohol.
Luxury rehab centers have top-notch professionals on-staff with extensive addiction treatment experience.
In general, effective luxury drug and alcohol rehab centers should offer the following:
- Medical detoxification services – Drug detox is a physically and emotionally difficult process. The symptoms of chemical withdrawal are not only dangerous, but in some cases, can prove to be life threatening. Supervised detox is essential to safely managing these symptoms.
- Dual diagnosis care – Nearly one out of every three individuals who need drug or alcohol treatment are “dual diagnosis” patients. This means they suffer from a primary addiction to drugs or alcohol, as well as co-occurring mental health disorders, such as depression. In order for treatment to be effective, treatment must address both the primary addiction as well as the underlying mental health concern.
- Customized therapy options – There is no “one-size-fits-all” approach to drug and alcohol rehabilitation. While many individuals benefit from 12-step programs, others may also benefit from holistic care options. Yoga, equine therapy, meditation, and art therapy are all examples of holistic program offerings that help build an individual’s self-confidence and enhance the mind-body connection.
- Transitional living and/or continuing care – Transitioning from a luxury drug and alcohol rehab center back to every day life can be a tremendous challenge, especially as individuals take the first steps towards repairing damaged relationships. When selecting a drug or alcohol treatment program, ask what options the program offers for post-rehab care in order to reduce the risk for relapse.

Seeking Help for Substance Abuse
An estimated 23.1 million Americans need treatment for a problem related to drugs or alcohol, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse. However, only 2.5 million will receive the help they need. Given the number of different treatment options available, selecting the right treatment program can seem at times like an overwhelming task.
If you or a loved one would benefit from drug treatment program, an addiction treatment specialist can help. Finding the right treatment program is not easy, but it is an important first step to long-term sobriety.
