Rehab Reviews


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.

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 boot-camp-cum-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.

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.
