Luxury addiction treatment facilities cater to their clients, but they do so with a higher purpose in mind.
Recovery from drug and alcohol addiction is hard work, and no one who enters rehab will have an easy time. But luxury treatment centers can possibly make the recovery process more comfortable. Clients who choose this option will pursue sobriety and greater self-understanding in safe, tranquil and agreeable settings.
Luxury addiction treatment facilities cater to their clients, but they do so with a higher purpose in mind. The benefits of this approach to recovery are ample and plentiful, and every amenity offered is ultimately designed to support a sustainable transition to a drug and alcohol-free lifestyle.
On the surface, luxury treatment facilities resemble major resorts, retreats, spas or luxury hotels. In this instance, however, the amenities they provide are not meant to facilitate a momentary escape from stress. The goal of luxury rehab is to encourage personal growth, deep self-exploration and a full commitment to the path of wellness.
The secret to the success of luxury addiction treatment is attention to detail. Every minute a person spends in a luxury facility will offer opportunities to expand their horizons, learn new skills and embrace a heathy and holistic lifestyle.
There are now more than 14,500 drug and alcohol treatment centers in operation in the United States, and luxury treatment facilities form a rapidly expanding percentage of this number[i]. As a group, they offer a menu of wellness and recovery options that allow their clients to customize their treatment plans and make their time in rehab a memorable and transformative experience.
Peace, tranquility, privacy and immersion in the beauty of nature define the luxury treatment environment. But the specific programs, therapies, benefits and conveniences provided by various luxury rehab centers are many with no two facilities featuring the same package of amenities.
The top holistic amenities of luxury addiction treatment include:
These time-tested healing and stress management techniques are simple to learn, yet highly effective at creating calmer and more controlled states of being. People with substance use disorders are often triggered to drink or take drugs by anxiety-causing events, but practices like yoga, meditation and breathwork promote conscious reactions and a more reflective and aware approach to living[ii].
People with substance use issues often feel the effects of their behavior in the body, in the form of chronic aches and pains or illnesses. Alternative healing arts like chiropractic care, acupuncture and massage can help restore the equilibrium of minds and bodies thrown out of balance by drug and alcohol addiction.
Substance use disorders cause weaker immune responses, disrupt digestion, put undue stress on organs and just in general leave a person feeling weak, low on energy and without the vitality they need to fight for their health. Luxury facilities feature food that is highly nutritious and delicious, which is exactly what people recovering from drugs and alcohol abuse need to cleanse their systems of toxins.
The body is at its peak when it is kept active and engaged, and people who encounter substance use problems are often neglectful of their physical health. As they detoxify from drugs and alcohol it is important that they embrace healthy, active living, and on-site exercise facilities provide opportunities to begin important lifestyle alterations.
In the addiction recovery process, people going through turbulent and challenging times can benefit by finding ways to express their feelings, both good and bad. Creative arts provide the perfect outlet for fulfilling this purpose, and nearly 40 percent of treatment facilities nationwide are now offering these programs[iii]. Through the use of music, dance, art in various mediums and the written word, participants can gain insights from these practices even if they’ve have no prior experience in these areas.
Through empathic bonding with animals, many people recovering from alcohol or drug dependency can channel healing, constructive energies that help them find sobriety and lasting wellness. Equine therapy, also called horse therapy or equine-assisted psychotherapy, programs have grown increasingly popular at drug and alcohol treatment facilities, and science has confirmed their efficacy, and that is why many luxury treatment centers now offer them on their menu of healing options[iv].
Adventure therapy takes place outdoors, in scenic environments where participants can reconnect with the healing energies of nature, developing a sense of teamwork and camaraderie with each other along the way. Adventure therapy includes activities such as rock climbing, standup paddle boarding, hiking and surfing. Skill development and the building of self-confidence are essential aspects of adventure therapy, which offers unforgettable experiences for those who need to develop a more positive outlook on life.
In the most innovative music treatment programs, clients have the opportunity to take part in group therapy sessions, song writing classes and creative sessions in an actual music studio[v]. Rather than just listening to music, participants will write their own songs in collaboration with music therapists and each other, and they will have the opportunity to perform their creations once they’re ready.
Anyone can take advantage of this type of treatment program, music therapy is perfect for anyone, from musicians to someone with no prior musical experience. The healing power of music, for body, mind and spirit, is unquestioned, and that is why music and sound therapy can provide men and women in recovery with valuable short and long-term benefits.
Treatment centers that provide a full range of amenities are found in most states and in many popular vacation spots around the world. The package of features offered varies from center to center. Anyone who is interested in luxury rehab should contact multiple locations, tour the facility if possible and speak with staff and management.
Transformations Treatment Center offers a variety of holistic treatment services and programs including chiropractic care, nutritional supplements, recreational activities and the SoundPath music recovery program.
