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?
