So what’s it all about? With many prestigious rehab clinics and centers already charging $30,000 and upwards for each month of treatment, what’s with fuss about regarding the new “luxury” rehab label? Is it to do with A-List clients and bottomless purses to pay for niche and exclusive treatments, whilst the rest of us make do with regular drug rehab programs?
According to luxury-drugrehab.org that luxury label isn’t a trick which repackages old rehab programs with a new sense of purpose and new price tag to boot. It actually refers to a whole set of therapeutic approaches which aim to enrich the recovery process for dependents and underpin vital rehabilitation practices: it’s treatment at its most holistic –no tricking!
Luxury rehab incorporates many aspects of holistic healing which have been practiced throughout many centuries. Many of these have recently been shown to aid addiction recovery and can even help to maintain progress and prevent relapse. Treatments such as relaxation, meditation, yoga and massage have been shown to assist dependents to not only cope with the worst stresses of withdrawal periods, but also to deal with the stresses arising from getting to the bottom of the origins of their addictions. As well as acting as a coping mechanism during the rehab itself, by learning how these therapies work and practicing them independently, many patients find themselves able to cope better with their stress levels when back out in “the real world” and more likely to use these methods when the going gets tough, rather than relapse into previous cycles of destructive, dependent behavior.
Many of the additional treatments on offer under the luxury label have very specific roles to help patients cleanse of the toxic substances which overload their systems. Treatments such as saunas, acupuncture and reflexology can all play a part in protecting and supporting a tired body with the cleansing process needed to help the body to eliminate its toxins – which also helps the body to relax, repair and restore – and of course its no trick that for the body to be able to do these things effectively, the mind needs to be relaxed and working in harmony alongside it.
As humans, we respond to our surroundings, so it makes sense that part of the treatment which falls under the luxury label offers a high level of comfort, calm and serenity in the surroundings. Physical comforts play a great part in both the healing processes of the body and in affecting the mindset, so luxury accommodation and beautiful surroundings aren’t a superficial trick of the trade. Instead, they’re an active tool for stimulating the patient’s willingness to work with the treatments, to stay the course of the rehab and to augment the benefits of basic rehab by engaging with their own purpose to break cycles of destructive behavior and regain a sense of mental, as well as bodily calm and confidence.
Finally, the key factor is that there is actually one little trick: the “luxury” label doesn’t mean its an expensive type of rehab, it actually refers to an enriched approach to drug rehabilitation, as oppose to regular stepped clinical programs which fall short on ancillary benefits or comforts . In some rehabilitation centers, these enriched, holistic programs, although known as the “luxury” label, are fast becoming the more cost-effective norm.
