How to Choose a Luxury Detox
According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), in 2008 alonesome 1.8 million people in the United States were admitted for treatment for alcohol and drug abuse issues. If you or a loved one is struggling with addiction, you may be wonderinghow to choose a luxury detox that will provide a place to recover and recuperate in comfort.
The Benefits of Painless Detox
Withdrawal is one of the most painful aspects of embracing newfound sobriety. The longer you abuse illicit drugs or alcohol the more difficult it is for your body to copy when those intoxicants are flushed from your system. As you detox you may experience any or all of the following symptoms:

- headaches or migraines
In severe cases of prolonged abuse detoxing can cause severe medical problems, but in most cases it's just very uncomfortable. A luxury rehab that offers medically supervised detox can help patients better cope with withdrawal symptoms in a way that minimizes discomfort and therefore maximizes the possibility of a smooth transition to sobriety.
Taking Advantage of Luxury Amenities
Alcohol detox is often a difficult experience, but opting for admittance to a residental drug detox facility that has a number of amentities that go above and beyond typical counseling and medical supervision can help make a 30 day (or longer) stay a bit more pleasant. Spa treatments, sumptious bed linens, healthy chef-prepared meals, gym access, and yoga classes are good not only for physical well-being but also for emotional and mental health. Having an outlet for excess energy and getting pampered while you confront your addictive behaviors is a big part of what luxury rehab is all about.
The Cost of Luxury Rehab
There are many positive attributes to luxury rehab, but the cost of these facilities can sometimes be prohibitive. Not all insurance plans cover a stay in a luxury facility, and those that do may pick and choose what services they'll cover while patients are admitted. For instance, some insurance plans will cover basic medical care, but not medically supervised detox, or they'll deny coverage for "extras" like exercise classes, meal plans, or outings. Before choosing which rehab facility you'll begin you recovery in, evaluate all your options thoroughly and know the extent of your coverage.
