Rehab Reviews


Newport Beach, Calif.
$31,000 for 30 days

This Newport Beach rehab network's three main treatment centers address everything from drinking and drug addiction to eating disorders, all in gender-segregated settings.

Waverly, Pa.
$28,000

Marworth is a rehab respected for values as rock-solid as the walls of its stone mansion building. The cops, doctors and others who come here expect progress, not pampering.

Fredericksburg, Texas
$12,600 for 30–35 days

It’s “nothing fancy, just recovery” at this Texas Hill Country rehab, where zero tolerance for rule-breakers is balanced by individual attention to every resident.

Eden Prairie, Minn.
$19,600

America's leading gay and lesbian rehab is a safe, clean haven for a wide range of LGBT clients who want to give up drugs and alcohol. But cramming 40 gay addicts into a tiny space can result in occasional fireworks.

Olalla, Wash.
$225/day

This secluded Pacific Northwest rehab blends the 12 Steps and Native American ceremonies to help its residents get sober. Just be sure to bring a rain jacket.

Prescott, Ariz.
$7,850

The "recovery capital of the Southwest" is home to a rehab where the only drug is testosterone. Those who conquer the high ropes can forge brotherly bonds that will last a lifetime.

Del Mar, Calif.
$30,000 (double room)

Casa Palmera offers sun-drenched luxury a stone's throw from the sea (and a few stars). But the one-size-fits-all AA approach doesn't always go down as well as the homemade peanut butter.

Costa Rica
$14,900/mo.

This holistic rehab in Costa Rica is great for people who want to set their mind, body and diet right while they treat their addiction. Those looking for a traditional 12-Step approach, however, might look elsewhere.

Campuses in Florida
$12,000–$20,000 (econ.)

This choose-your-own-adventure rehab provides a multi-site experience with an equally diverse range of treatments. Whether you find what you're looking for depends largely on the depth of your pockets.

Deerfield Beach, Fla.
$18,100 for the first month

Amid beautiful facilities and nearby beaches, this condo-campus Deerfield Beach treatment center makes sure patients are staying on track and developing good habits.

Havre de Grace, Md.
$22,000

A non-denominational Maryland facility founded by a Catholic priest, this respected rehab serves up more than spirituality and the Big Book. Clients say the food here is like manna from heaven.

Manor, Texas
$36,000 for 180 days

In old-school AA, the men stick with the men, and the women with the women—and that’s just what this rigorous, gender-segregated and Big Book–focused Texas rehab does.

Caanan, Conn.
$30,000 for 28 days (does not include detox)

Mountainside's setting lives up to its name. And the usually youthful clients find that a sense of community and some enlightened counselors can compensate for food that's bad enough to write home about.

Boca Raton, Fla.
$14,250 for 30 days

If you’re a depressed alcoholic and don’t mind cooking your own meals (or walking a mile to treatment sessions), this dual-diagnosis Florida rehab could be the one for you.

Plymouth, Minn.
$28,000

Cold weather and half-caf coffee help curb the crisis-stricken clients at Hazelden's youth branch. Sympathetic staff and family involvement often ensure that the kids are alright.

Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.
$18,000 for 30 days

Focusing on substance abuse and gambling, this guys-only Florida rehab offers regular gym trips, hearty meals and a horseshoe pit. Male bonding, anyone?

Nunnelly, Tenn.
$19,500–$26,000/mo.

Their testament to tough love puts punters through Native American philosophy, wacky personal contracts and something known as "Gump Day." Don't expect too much luxury, though—it really is a ranch.

Fall City, Wash.
$20,000 for 45 days

If an addiction to video games, technology or the Internet has your life flashing "Game Over," reSTART treatment center might be able to help you unplug.

Wayzata, Minn.
$4,700 for 30 days

Full days of AA stepwork combined with the “strangely spiritual” forested surroundings make this affordable, relatively strict Minnesota rehab a solid place to get sober.

Austin, Texas
$8,850/mo.

The spartan set-up of this massive Texas facility reflects a certain cowboy ethos, but its clients are more focused on twelve steps than two-steps. Exercise is oddly not part of the curriculum here, but residents receive a solid grounding in recovery and a valuable education in the basics of life.

Cottonwood Heights, Utah
$15,000 for 28 days

Although some feel it’s not adequately staffed, this Utah rehab keeps clients active and fosters strong bonds (during kitchen-clean-up time) among its 16 max residents.

Los Angeles
$40,000

Compared to most rehabs—if not its glamorous Malibu sister—"Ghetto Promises" is comfortable and classy. But does its laid-back, "beachy" vibe make it less serious than it should be?

Kaufman and Elgin, Texas
$33,000 for three months

This no-nonsense Texas rehab gives relapsing hard cases another shot at sobriety with clear rules, tough love and long-term, 12-step-focused treatment.

Los Angeles
$40,000–$50,000

You’d be forgiven for thinking this Hollywood Hills-based luxury facility is related to the TV show: With celebrity clientele and uber-wealthy screw-ups, it’s a wonder there isn’t more drama.

Bridgeton, NJ
$26,200

An isolated New Jersey outpost enveloped by acres of farmland, Seabrook House is run more with an iron fist than a firm hand. But alumni say that its lush landscaped gardens, fine food and top-tier treatment help soften the blow.
