Rehab Reviews - Page 3


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.

Costa Mesa, Calif.
$24,500 for 30 days

Offering relaxed recovery with a touch of Zen, this small, women-only rehab occupies a LEED-certified “urban lodge” just minutes from the beach in Orange County.

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?

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.

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.

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?

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.

Canaan, 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 clinicians can compensate for food that's bad enough to write home about.

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.

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.

Atlanta
$18,000

After decades of treating dipsomaniac doctors, the staff at this Atlanta rehab is pretty sharp—and you no longer have to be an MD to get into "The Dome."

Argyle, Texas
$23,000

Community ties are strong at this raucous Texas rehab, where residents bond quickly on the ropes course and over fried chicken and sweet tea.


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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Upstate New York
$12,900–$30,000 for six weeks

Think AA is a sham, but still need to get sober? Try Saint Jude Retreats, a non-12-step program which encourages residents—through classes, workbooks and volunteering—to get their lives back on track by making more productive choices.

Deerfield Beach, Fla.
$17,500 for 30 days

Just north of Fort Lauderdale, a place legendary for Spring Break debauchery and drunkenness, is a decidedly more sober destination: a "non-enabling" rehab known as The Florida House Experience.
