Rehab Review Adds Five New Centers

The newly reviewed rehabs range from Florida to South Dakota, and from affordable and Big-Book-focused to high-end and with more freedom of choice.

Today The Fix adds five new addiction-treatment facilities to its ever-growing Rehab Review, in a diverse range of locales including Marin County, Calif.; near Delray Beach, Fla., aka “the recovery capital of America”; Fredericksburg, Texas; Olalla, Wash.; and even South Dakota, marking our first reviewed rehab in the Mount Rushmore State. These five new rehabs represent a wide variety of philosophies and pricing—from $225 a day with shared bedrooms and cafeteria-style tacos and burgers at the more affordable end (Olalla Guest Lodge) to luxurious private bedrooms and meals crafted by an executive chef at the high end, for $32,500 a month at Reflections, in Novato, Calif.

More important, though, is the treatment itself. Tallgrass, in Sioux Falls, SD, relies on mentors from the local 12-step community to take its residents through the first seven steps while in treatment, while Wellness Resource Center, in Boca Raton, Fla., specializes in helping dual-diagnosis clients. As you might expect in Texas, rehab is by-the-Big-Book at Fredericksburg’s Serenity House, while Reflections gives its residents choices, including SMART Recovery and LifeRing, in addition to 12-step meetings. Last but not least, Olalla Guest Lodge incorporates Native American spiritual elements into its program.

If you’ve been to rehab—these five or any others—The Fix wants to hear about it. Click here to complete a quick, anonymous and confidential survey about your treatment experience. We will use this feedback to write new insider reviews of rehabs across the country (and the world!).

In darker periods, I would sleep with some guy in the hopes of making him love me. It would work for a couple of months here and there, but I could only keep ‘sloppy drunk girl’ at bay for so long.
