Rehab Reviews


Lemont, IL
$1,000/day

This women-only drug, alcohol and eating disorder rehab outside of Chicago gets high marks for DBT, good cafeteria-style food, and its “get better together” camaraderie.

Woodland Hills, Calif.
$10,000/mo.

Adolescents and young adults flunking out at staying clean are given the chance to ace their addictions and graduate (for real) at this unique university-integrated rehab.

Malibu, Calif.
$10,000/mo.

This relaxed sober-living manse is a great next step for rehab grads who’ve become enamored with the Southern-California recovery lifestyle—so long as you don’t mind just a touch of obligatory “bunch of strangers living together” drama.

Anaheim, California
$12,000 a month

Anaheim Lighthouse is a drug and alcohol rehab with a more residential feel to it than many of its competitors. The suburban surroundings are replete with palm trees and green lawns, and the houses also have outdoor lounge areas with benches and small decorated fountains.

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.

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.

Thailand
$12,900 for 28 days

This luxury Thai rehab brings on the namaste with lush surroundings and daily pampering, but also has highly trained medical staff who know why residents are here.

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.

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.

Carbondale, Colo.
$14,250/mo.

An all-male clientele and a passion for mountain sports differentiate Colorado's Jaywalker Lodge, a rugged but reliable drug and alcohol rehab that attempts to treat men who have failed elsewhere.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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."

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?

$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.

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.

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.

Scottsdale, Ariz.
$20,000 for 28 days

If you can tolerate a two-caste system between its houses, this resort-style Arizona desert rehab has tons of amenities, making for a comfortable setting in which to get sober.

Laguna Beach, Calif.
$20,000/mo.

Compassionate staff, fun activities and a solid aftercare program make this beachy California facility the “total package.” Just don’t stuff yourself with Top Ramen.

Lake Worth, Fla.
$21,000 for 30 days

Given its Christian leanings and patients from a wide range of socioeconomic backgrounds, this Florida rehab's motto may as well be, “Let the addicts and alcoholics come unto me.”

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.
