People who choose a luxury rehab are usually doing so because they are convinced that it will increase the likelihood of them achieving lasting sobriety. This may indeed be the case. Here are 5 benefits of choosing this option:
1. It Can Provide the Perfect Environment for Change
It is important that you feel comfortable in the rehab environment or you may be so distracted that you can’t put your attention where it needs to be. It can be stressful staying in a treatment centre that is overcrowded and under-resourced, and this gets in the way of your transformation. We humans are influenced strongly by our environment, so it is easy to see how a luxury rehab could give you an advantage.
2. There is usually a Better Client to Therapist Ratio
If the therapists have a heavy caseload, which is often the case in the average rehab, you are unlikely to get much time alone with them. Group therapy does play a key role in addiction treatment, but you also need one-to-one therapy as well – for example, there are going to be things you don’t want to talk about in group. A luxury rehab will usually have a much better client to therapist ratio, so you will get to spend more time with this professional.
3. Access to the Resources You Need to Build a Strong Recovery
It is not enough that a rehab has all the resources you need, you also need to have adequate access these resources. This may not be the case in a facility where they are shared between too many clients. A luxury rehab can afford to provide the best recovery resources in a way that ensures that each client has sufficient access to them.
4. Individualised Care Plans
Individualised care plans is something most rehabs now claim to offer but in a busy facility it can be often more of an ideal than a reality. It is just more convenient to provide a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach when staff members are struggling to deal with unrealistic demands on their time. A luxury rehab is in a much better position to provide actual individualised care.
5. Elimination of Unnecessary Discomforts
Some of the discomforts of rehab are just part of the process (e.g. you need to be away from your family), but there are other discomforts that are unnecessary (e.g. staying in an overcrowded and rundown facility). The fewer discomforts there are, the easier it will be for you to recover, and a luxury rehab can eliminate most of the unnecessary discomforts.
