This week The Fix expanded its Rehab Review yet again, this time adding five new insider reviews of drug and alcohol treatment centers in places as varied as Texas, San Francisco, Arizona—and even Costa Rica.

The two Lone Star State rehabs include an updated review for Santé Center for Healing—which you may have seen on A&E’s Intervention—as well as a review of the Big Book–focused, new-to-The-Fix facility Benchmark Recovery Center. In Flagstaff, Arizona, Back2Basics Outdoor Adventures is like Outward Bound for addicts, treating young men with lots of AA meetings and time in the wilderness. Whole Recovery in Costa Rica takes a holistic tack, treating brain, body and spirit in an unmatched setting of jungle, waterfalls, volcanos, sea and sand. Last but not least, Alta Mira, situated on San Francisco Bay, is a luxury rehab with more of an open mind than some when it comes to treatment.

The Fix’s Rehab Reviews are unique in that they are made up of independent, fact-checked accounts and experiences from real people who have gotten sober—or not—at these places. If you want to get the dirt about what 90 days at a particular treatment center is going to be like—look no further. Interested in getting your rehab reviewed by The Fix?

"I think admitting to having a problem in general is the right first step, but to admit powerlessness is unhealthy. .. I think admitting powerlessness is more harmful because it doesn't help. Admitting that you want and need help is more useful after admittance."

The Rehab Review
Cliffside Malibu

The “beach-house-relaxed” Cliffside Malibu claims to provide an oasis for recovering addicts and alcoholics. And that’s just what you'll get—if you’ve got the cash.

Morningside Recovery

For a “rehab near the beach” experience that isn’t quite as costly as similar SoCal competitors, head to this Newport Beach treatment facility.

AToN Center

Whether you’re interested in the 12 Steps, SMART Recovery, or holistic treatments, this luxurious, appealing and commendable 4.5 star (our system doesn't yet show the 1/2 star) San Diego rehab has a program for you. 


This exclusive Northern California rehab is all about client choice—as well as golf outings, Buddhist field trips and keeping up with the office.

Capo By The Sea

Capo By The Sea offers an executive rehab program complete with medical detox and a focus on dual-diagnosis issues, as well as an outpatient option in an environment that exudes the kind of beach house optimism one would expect from an Orange County recovery outfit.

Journey Malibu

Want many of the luxury amenities A-listers have come to expect—including an enormous backyard with a pool and patio, an herb garden, a volleyball net and a spectacular vista of the Santa Monica mountains—with a recovery program to match?
