Many people choose to go through these symptoms in an environment that is both peaceful and helpful. There are many other reasons to choose a luxury rehab. A few of these reasons are:

o Holistic therapy,
- Herbal medicine,
- Guided meditation,
- Hypnosis, and
- Relaxation therapies,
o Art therapy,

- An often talked about aspect of treatment is patient to staff ratio. The staff ratio is different than in other rehabs. There are also other staffing differences such as:
o Luxury rehabs often have higher quality staff,
o They have a lower client to staff ratio, and

o Personal assistants, and
o Access to high tech medicine and facilities.
These are not the only amenities that some luxury rehabs offer. Some also offer beautiful views and peaceful surroundings. Sometimes luxury rehabs are also themed such as farms, ranches, and other active settings. Some rehabs are isolated from the world while others blend into major cities.

What are the Disadvantages of Luxury Rehab?
Aside from cost, luxury rehabs have very few disadvantages when compared to other treatment centers. Some of the more common disadvantages are:
- Limited availability – high end rehabs might have a waiting list to get in. The more popular and famous the rehab is, the more likely you will have to wait to get a place. This is particularly true of inpatient centers.
- Too many options – although this might not seem like a disadvantage, having too many choices can be confusing especially when it comes to drug addiction treatment.
These disadvantages are easily worked around depending on the individual rehab.
What is the Cost of a Luxury Rehab?
The cost of luxury rehab ranges between a few thousand dollars a day into hundreds of thousands of dollars for complete treatment. Fortunately, there are ways to manage that cost. Before entering rehab, speak to a financial counselor. Most rehabs offer financial counseling for those considering their facility. They can help with:
- insurance benefits – many major insurance carriers now offer coverage for addiction treatment. They may cover part or all of your treatment in a luxury rehab facility. Unfortunately, the paperwork can be complex. Financial counselors can help you check what is covered and how to apply for benefits.
- financial assistance – many luxury rehabs offer their own form of financial assistance to patients in need. These programs are only accessible through the rehab facility. Be sure to ask if the rehab has a program that will help you defray the cost of treatment.
- government assistance – there are many addiction related government programs. In order to access these programs you have to know where to look and how to fill out the forms. Once the forms are filled out and submitted, it is just a matter of waiting for approval.
- payment plans – many rehabs are understanding about the financial difficulties that a drug addiction can cause. They offer a wide range of payment plans for needy patients.
When you are searching for a rehab, cost is a factor. It is important to be comfortable with the cost of rehab so you are not worrying needlessly.
Inpatient versus Outpatient Rehab
There are two main types of rehabs. You can choose from inpatient or outpatient services.
- Inpatient services are residential services. You eat and sleep at the rehab facility while you are receiving treatment. This keeps you isolated from your triggers and your home environment, so you can concentrate completely on ending the addiction. The problem with residential rehab facilities is that you have to take off school or work to attend one. Once you are checked into the facility you cannot leave until you, your doctor, and your counselors agree that you are ready. If you do, you usually have to start the program over again.
- Outpatient services require you to return to the facility either daily, weekly, or monthly for treatment. This allows you to continue with work or school while you are in treatment. One of the key advantages of outpatient rehab is the flexibility that it offers. You can work your treatment around your schedule.
Whether you choose inpatient or outpatient services is up to you and your doctor. Some people are better suited for inpatient while others are suited more for outpatient. Choosing the option that is right for you can greatly improve your chances of successful recovery.
