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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Blairstown, NJ
$58,500 for six months

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

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?

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.
