Luxury Alcohol Rehab

An alcohol addiction robs people of (at one time or another) their dignity, their relationships, and their ability to embrace both life’s challenges and beauty. It is important, then, that their first steps toward sobriety break this bleak pattern and awaken the alcoholic to the possibilities and excitement that a sober life allows. Luxury alcohol rehab programs, like The GRR, entice alcoholics into recovery. Oftentimes alcoholics drink in beautiful places while engaging in recreational activities like golf, socializing, or while watching sports & luxury alcohol rehab programs take the approach that individuals do not have to give up such pursuits when getting sober. Rather, luxury alcohol programs seek to show clients that without alcohol clouding their judgement, such endeavors can be much more enjoyable and the beauty of locales more distinct.

Transitioning clients into Phase 1 of our luxury rehab program (which consists of a highly structured schedule that includes: AA/NA meetings, gym time, individual & group therapy, nutritious meals/snacks, and recreational activities) gives clients a taste of how productive and healthy they can be. Pairing this busy schedule with beautiful homes, fine food, gorgeous suite-style rooms, and fitting recreational activities gets clients excited about what all they can accomplish in sobriety. While many centers use punitive measures to force clients into recovery while in treatment, at The GRR we find it much more effective to inspire people into leading purpose-driven, loving, and sober lives. Such inspiration and self-motivation extends far beyond their time with us and can continue to effect them years and decades after treatment with us.

Luxury Rehab: Helpful or Harmful to Recovery?

People have varied views on luxury rehab and we are dedicating this blog post to doing some mythbusting about it!

Some members of the recovery community sneer at the mention of luxury rehab, while others swear by his/her center of choice- a difficult situation to make sense of! Those who look down upon “plushy” treatment centers often ascribe to the belief that rehab should be about the bare minimums of life and be a difficult (in all senses of the word) time so individuals can prove their dedication to recovery and whatever that process mandates.

Others view luxury rehab centers as an imperative option to have to fulfill the unique needs of high-end executives, a cohort that is largely ignored and discounted in size. Instead of rehab being approached as an absolute last-resort, it is effective to attract these individuals into a life of sobriety. Luxury rehab programs have the unique ability to meet high-end professionals where they are and provide a comfortable environment for such clients to thrive in. This population of people would often be put at a disadvantage in more “rough & tumble” rehabs as they would be so busy re-adjusting to a radically different life-style that little energy would be left to devote to recovery. Undergoing deep reflection of one’s past and discerning how one can act differently in the present and future requires a great deal of dedication, motivation, energy, and hope and by providing a comfortable home-like atmosphere for these individuals, luxury rehab centers can maximize one’s chances of life-long sobriety. In addition, these programs aim to prepare clients for his/her future- a future that will often include mandatory attendance at cocktail parties, golf or tennis games, and conferences with evening open bars. By catering specifically to this high-end cohort of professionals, luxury rehabs are fully aware of these future hazards that clients will likely face and can approach them in one’s treatment plan.

In the end, the decision to seek luxury rehab or more traditional rehab depends solely on the needs of the individual in question. The GRR has 4 Recovery Residences, which span from the luxurious Plantation Home to the conservative Cottages, and we will be happy to hear more about your case specifically and give advice regarding what type of treatment program we would advise. Looking forward to hearing from you soon!
