What Are the Benefits of Luxury Rehab?

Centres for health and healing main view.

When we hear the word ”rehab”, most of us are inclined to think of high-profile celebrities and Hollywood A-listers.

We don’t often associate rehab with everyday people seeking help for a drug or alcohol addiction. 

But that doesn’t mean it never happens.

Anyone can be impacted by addiction.

Alcohol and drug addiction do not have socioeconomic restraints or exemptions.

Anyone can be impacted by substance addiction, and luxury rehab, in particular, has significantly more benefits accessible to the broader public than you might think.

What is luxury rehab?

For those seeking to overcome a drug or alcohol problem, a luxury rehab facility can help people learn more about their drug or alcohol issues while developing a treatment plan for long-term recovery.

Typically, luxury rehabilitation centres offer a retreat-style residential environment, where clients are offered a warm, welcoming ambience and private, comfortable surroundings that help encourage and facilitate healing.


For most people, overcoming an addiction is a highly personal process.

Privacy is a vital part of recovery for most people, and many luxury rehab centres offer various amenities, such as gated entrances, private access, and peaceful resort-style surroundings.

Addiction recovery

If you are looking to get help for a drug or alcohol addiction or other mental health condition, the Centres for Health and Healing team can help.

We offer various evidence-based treatment programs for substance abuse and co-occurring mental health disorders.

Treatment options include:

Luxury rehabs

Luxury rehab differs significantly from other types of rehabilitation.

Clients entering a luxury rehab facility can expect a highly personalised treatment plan facilitated by a multidisciplinary team of expertly trained specialists.

These treatments usually involve cognitive therapies and modified treatment for various mental health disorders (sometimes called dual diagnoses).

Unlike other types of rehab, luxury addiction and mental health rehab facilities have limited beds, meaning that clients can enjoy more personalised services and a deeper focus on the core issues that may have led to substance abuse.

Traditional rehab versus luxury rehab

Luxury drug and alcohol rehab centres offer markedly different services and treatment approaches to traditional forms of rehabilitation. 

Conventional rehab centres provide a limited scope for treatment and various other crucial amenities vital to an individual’s recovery.

Traditional rehab

For example, traditional rehabilitation centres typically provide the following:

  • Entry-level therapists or clinicians (with 1-2 specialist clinicians)
  • Limited access to therapists and physicians outside of therapy sessions
  • Limited specialised weekly treatments (around 1 – 2 per week)
  • Clinicians that may not be qualified to offer dual-diagnosis treatment
  • Limited access to electronics
  • Standard or basic bedrooms
  • Standard behavioural treatments only

On the other hand, luxury or high-end rehab facilities typically offer a more comprehensive approach to treatment and increased access to essential amenities and services that promote lasting and sustainable recovery.

These services typically include:

  • More specialised treatments each week (around 3-5)
  • A low density of patients
  • Highly trained support staff and expertly-trained clinicians
  • Private chefs (and catered food)
  • The ability to diagnose and treat co-occurring mental health disorders – for example, a person may have two conditions, such as a drug addiction and mental health condition (such as depression).
  • Holistic, experiential and behavioural treatments
  • Access to therapists outside of scheduled sessions
  • Complete access to gym facilities

Additional benefits of luxury rehab

Studies show that some residential inpatient rehab centres (particularly in the United States) provide care and treatment to around 120 patients per month.

However, luxury rehab centres accept a much lower patient ratio than this, enabling clinicians to provide a more personalised service and higher quality treatment and care to each individual.

Lower patient ratio

A lower ratio of patients allows each person to have increased access to therapists and clinicians, more space to recover, and access to preferred therapy.

Moreover, a reduced number of patients in a single facility minimises security risks and allows clients access to individualised care and treatment, giving patients the privacy they need to recover.

Getting help for drug and alcohol addiction

Many factors can contribute to why a person abuses substances – the possibility of people becoming addicted is profoundly high, particularly for those who use drugs or alcohol as escapism.

Numbing our pain or distracting ourselves from things we’d prefer not to think about can seem attractive, but these strategies only work in the short term (if that).

Coping mechanisms

Whatever difficult memories or trauma we might be avoiding through drug-taking or excessive drinking often comes back with a vengeance, usually, around the time the hangover starts to kick in.

Once a person becomes addicted to one or more substances, finding recovery often requires a willingness to recognise how these unhealthy coping mechanisms affect the individual’s life and those they love.


That said, various things can deter people from seeking treatment.

For instance, whether it’s denial, not being ready (or willing) to seek help, or the misconception that specific forms of treatment (such as luxury rehab) are only available to high-profile people like celebrities or the very rich.

Such myths can prevent people from seeking the treatment they need and deserve – many luxury rehab facilities provide affordable care to those who need it.

Addiction treatment fees at a luxury rehab centre can vary and depend on the location, duration of your stay, and the type of treatment required.

Generally, you can expect to pay more for luxury rehab than outpatient support due to the intensity of care and treatment provided in an inpatient residential facility.

Most rehab centres accept various payment methods to make treatment more available and accessible.

What to look out for when searching for an inpatient rehab centre

Most rehab facilities have various forms of accreditation from trusted sources that you can access on their website.

For those with more than one mental health condition, you must engage in a rehab program that can treat co-occurring disorders.

Appropriate terms to look out for when searching for a suitable rehab facility are ”dual diagnosis”, ”concurrent disorders” and ”co-occurring disorders”.

The above terms signify that your treatment provider offers a dual diagnostic approach to treatment, meaning they can simultaneously treat an individual with substance addiction and a co-occurring mental health disorder.

Why is this important?

Many people with a substance use disorder have other mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety or a personality disorder.

Both disorders must be treated for patients to have a better chance at recovery.

For example, various studies show that dual-diagnosis treatment results in more positive clinical outcomes for patients.

Addiction is very often a symptom of a much deeper, underlying problem. Thus addressing a person’s unresolved trauma or other issues is a significant aspect of long-lasting recovery.

Centres for Health and Healing

We treat various addictions and mental health disorders at Centres for Health and Healing.

Our trauma-informed specialists provide a dual-diagnostic approach to treatment in a refreshing and peaceful environment.

We understand that reaching out for support can be challenging at first, but once you start treatment, you will begin to experience the benefits of taking those initial steps.

If you (or someone you know) are struggling with an addiction, speak to a friendly specialist today who can advise you on the next steps.
