The Difference Between Luxury Rehab & Traditional Rehab
With the increased amount of illegal drug use and overdose deaths in our country, it is essential to receive help from a luxury rehab before it is too late. In California, the number of heroin-related emergency department visits have more than tripled from 2006-2017. (1) About 8% of Californians suffer from substance use disorder and sadly only 10% of those individuals received treatment.
With the help of a trusted rehab facility, you will be equipped to conquer your addiction. When choosing a facility for treatment, you can select from a traditional or luxury rehab. Understanding the differences between the two options will help you choose a rehab that addresses your individual needs and raise the chances of long-term recovery.
Offerings of Traditional Drug and Alcohol Rehab
Traditional rehab facilities provide care and assistance to patients who want to recover from drug or alcohol addiction. Inpatient and outpatient treatments are provided to the individual. These may include detox, group therapies, and meetings. These programs typically last only a few short months with providing some individualized treatment. If you are looking for a more holistic approach and more emphasis on your individual needs, a luxury rehab may be a better option for you.
What is Luxury Rehab?
Many luxury rehabilitation facilities are located in beautiful areas that resemble vacation resorts. Although they are usually nestled near the mountains or near the beach, these centers are dedicated to helping their patients live sober lives. They offer a safe environment to escape substance abuse and use a unique approach to treatment. More holistic options are offered and they will work with each patient on a one-on-one basis.
This individualized approach deals with the specific needs of each person. Since everyone has a different trigger or background story about substance abuse, treating each patient in this manner is extremely effective.
Most luxury rehabilitation facilities provide high-end accommodations and services to patients. For example, most patients enjoy separate rooms, delicious food, and a “spa-like” atmosphere. Privacy is at a higher level as well.
Many of these facilities have high-level professionals, and executive clients feel welcome among their own peers. Since luxury rehabs are quite comfortable, retention rates are higher. This means that more individuals remain in treatment for longer periods of time. Luxury rehabs are ideal for those who are reluctant to leave home for treatment.
Why Individualized Treatment is Important to Someone in Recovery
General treatment methods and basic 12-step programs may not benefit all clients. A person may have a dual diagnosis, which means that factors exist that may complicate treatment. Sometimes, a person may be battling anxiety and depression along with addiction. An individualized plan targets these circumstances. If psychological conditions fuel addiction, they will be addressed as well. Individualized treatment will address and monitor these issues during detox. Some patients suffer from multiple addictions as well. This makes it necessary to form a unique treatment plan that will attack all issues.
Although custom treatment plans differ, they all provide help with withdrawal, overall health, and aftercare. Recovery is lifelong, so it is vital to equip each patient with tools to overcome their addictions and to avoid relapse. In this manner, individualized treatment offers the highest chances of success.
Consider Holistic Treatment to Beat Addiction
A luxury rehab facility can equip an individual with the proper tools to beat addiction into the long-term. Using holistic methods, a person’s physical, mental, and emotional sides are addressed. When the body, mind, and spirit are on the right path, it is possible to overcome drug and alcohol abuse. When a patient returns to regular life activities, he or she is better prepared to face addiction challenges and to maintain sobriety. Many luxury centers build effective aftercare programs, which continue systems of support following rehab.
