The 12 Most Expensive / Luxury Rehabs in the United States

You don’t need to be a millionaire to go to rehab, but if you have money to spend and the desire to get sober you can choose from numerous expensive or luxury rehabs in the United States. Southern California, specifically picturesque Malibu, is home to the highest concentration of expensive rehab facilities. However, there are many luxury rehab options in the New York City metro area, Pennsylvania, Florida, Arizona, and Utah too.

Guests can expect a focus on privacy, comfort, fine dining, and recreational activities in a beautiful setting. Most centers offer a holistic approach to addiction treatment, including extras like meditation and mindfulness, and even equine and wolf therapy, in addition to individual and group therapy. There is a positive industry trend towards addressing co-occurring mental health and behavioral disorders, and several offer alternatives to the 12-Step model, such as SMART Recovery.

The highest-end facilities charge over $30,000 and some as much as $65,000 per standard month-long stay. This contrasts with low-level programs for $5,000 and under per month, with sliding scales and public assistance. While insurance coverage is recommended, it’s not always guaranteed.

Here are the 12 most expensive / luxury rehab facilities in the United States.
