Rehab Reviews - Page 4


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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.


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.

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."

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.

Malibu, Calif.
$80,000/mo. for Malibu; $50,000/mo. for Ventura

Perched high in the Malibu Hills, this pricey facility may well be the most deluxe rehab in the world. But some former clients say that it's not very effective.

Sioux Falls, SD
$6,000 for 30 days

Far from the luxury rehab locus of Malibu, the modest Tallgrass center doles out community-minded, by-the-Big-Book treatment in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Boca Raton and Boynton Beach, Fla.
$16,000 for 30 days

The Watershed houses clients at two different locations, one a condo-like complex and the other a somewhat more institutional residence. Those who feel they got the raw end of the living-situation deal are consoled by experienced staff and ice-cream machines.

Center City, Minn.
$28,300

This mammoth Minnesota drug rehab has become a dominant recovery brand and deals with 2,000 clients each year. So, how much does size matter?

Blairstown, NJ
$58,500 for six months

This New Jersey rehab demands long-term attendance and boasts a stellar success rate. But smoking, caffeine and phone calls are strictly banned.

11 states
Varies, but typically more affordable

This valuable network of rehabs serves disadvantaged and marginalized addicts around the country for (nearly) free. Beyonce's Cosmetology Center does its bit for national fashion—but the cuisine could use some work.
