What is it like inside luxury rehab facilities?

Inpatient rehab programs are one of the most effective methods of treatment for people who suffer from an addiction to drugs or alcohol. However, most patients dread leaving their homes and spending weeks or even months in a rehab facility. Fortunately, if you are able to afford a program at a luxury rehab facility, your entire experience will be much more comfortable.

About Luxury Rehab Facilities

A luxury rehab facility is a rehab center that has been designed to provide patients with a private, comfortable experience. Both detox and addiction treatment programs at these facilities are often more expensive than programs found at standard rehabs. However, patients at luxury centers can expect only the best when it comes to rooms, food, therapy, recreation and other amenities. 

What's it Like Inside?

A number of luxury rehab centers are available all around the country. Thus, the inside of a luxury rehab facility can vary considerably. However, most of these facilities are structured like a resort. Patients will enjoy beautiful, calming decor in both common areas and bedrooms. Each patient typically has his or her own private room with a comfortable bed and ample space. Luxury rehabs often provide gourmet meals to patients throughout the program. In addition, many of these facilities include plenty of opportunities for recreation on the grounds, such as swimming pools, tennis courts, fitness centers, horses and more.

How Do I Learn More?

If you are interested in seeking addiction treatment at a luxury rehab facility, consider your options carefully before you make a decision. You can find out more about different luxury rehab centers by reviewing their official websites, requesting brochures or calling facilities directly. It's also a good idea to read reviews of various luxury rehab centers to get an idea of their reputation among patients who have already graduated from a treatment program, as well as authorities in the field who have researched the facility.

Keep in mind that treatment at luxury rehab centers can be very expensive. In addition, many of these facilities will require you to pay for the full cost of your treatment program at the time of admission. If you have insurance coverage, be sure to find out whether your plan will cover any of the cost of treatment before you enroll.
