Rehab Reviews - Page 4


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.

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."

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
