Rehab Reviews


Malibu, Calif.
$57,000

Glamour and luxury pervade Promises' magnificent Malibu facility. A month here may cost you three times more than a month at the Paris Ritz, but for well-heeled clients like Diana Ross and Britney Spears, price isn't really an issue.

Las Vegas
$750/day

In one of the world’s least sober cities, Las Vegas Recovery Center is an island of serenity in a sea of vice. Although the busy schedule at this Nevada rehab and pain-management center makes some feel cramped, alumni have nothing but high marks for its compassionate staff.

Thailand
$12,900 for 28 days

This luxury Thai rehab brings on the namaste with lush surroundings and daily pampering, but also has highly trained medical staff who know why residents are here.

Sundance, Utah
$30,000

Cirque Lodge offers clients long nature hikes, mountain-top helicopter rides, free hairdos and fine cuisine on a breathtaking compound. While some alums found this Utah drug rehab a bit conservative, others ranked it among the country's top treatment centers. 

Laguna Beach, Calif.
$20,000/mo.

Compassionate staff, fun activities and a solid aftercare program make this beachy California facility the “total package.” Just don’t stuff yourself with Top Ramen.

This intimate California rehab is a good choice for anyone doesn’t want to feel like just another cog in the system. And, says one resident, “Everyone is so nice!”

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

Sausalito, Calif.
$50,000/35 days

This luxe San Francisco rehab remains free-thinking in some ways—see for instance its Native American sweat lodge—while it grows more traditional in others.

Friday Harbor, WA
25,000 (28 days), 30,000 (including alt. therapies, 28 days)

The Clearing isn't just another non-12-step or alternative rehab, it's something different entirely. Their unique program takes place on a 64-acre working farm and historic bed and breakfast.

Hanover, Va.
$25,000 (28 days)

Gamblers, addicts and alcoholics are all welcome at this stunning Virginia home. And despite an intensive daily regimen of one-on-one therapy, the friendly vibe and first-rate staff leave most patients feeling Southern-charmed.

Anaheim, California
$12,000 a month

Anaheim Lighthouse is a drug and alcohol rehab with a more residential feel to it than many of its competitors. The suburban surroundings are replete with palm trees and green lawns, and the houses also have outdoor lounge areas with benches and small decorated fountains.

Carbondale, Colo.
$14,250/mo.

An all-male clientele and a passion for mountain sports differentiate Colorado's Jaywalker Lodge, a rugged but reliable drug and alcohol rehab that attempts to treat men who have failed elsewhere.

Lake Worth, Fla.
$21,000 for 30 days

Given its Christian leanings and patients from a wide range of socioeconomic backgrounds, this Florida rehab's motto may as well be, “Let the addicts and alcoholics come unto me.”

Woodland Hills, Calif.
$10,000/mo.

Adolescents and young adults flunking out at staying clean are given the chance to ace their addictions and graduate (for real) at this unique university-integrated rehab.

Los Angeles
$7,000/mo.

Cri-Help's no-frills approach to recovery boasts strong results and has led to the facility having a great reputation. You won't be getting a high end luxury experience, but if you're ready to work and do what it takes to get sober, this respected Los Angeles facility may be your best bet.

Delray Beach, Fla.
$23,500 for 30 days

In addition to the 12-step / holistic therapy approach, what Palm Partners alumni consider the most meaningful part of their stay is the positive relationships built with fellow alumni and a deep love and appreciation of many of the therapists, counselors and techs who work there.

Malibu, Calif.
$10,000/mo.

This relaxed sober-living manse is a great next step for rehab grads who’ve become enamored with the Southern-California recovery lifestyle—so long as you don’t mind just a touch of obligatory “bunch of strangers living together” drama.

New Canaan, Conn.
$30,000

Set on 42 bucolic acres in New Canaan, Connecticut, is the picturesque and patrician 16-building campus of Silver Hill Hospital, which specializes in dual-diagnosis treatment and has a new chronic pain and addiction center.

Pasadena, Calif.
Unit 1: $8,200; Unit 2: $11,000

The home of Dr. Drew's Celebrity Rehab doesn't let the cameras in everywhere. While the counselors deliver, the chefs don't—and black-market meds abound.

Lemont, IL
$1,000/day

This women-only drug, alcohol and eating disorder rehab outside of Chicago gets high marks for DBT, good cafeteria-style food, and its “get better together” camaraderie.

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.
