When you go to rehab, the focus is on recovery. You’ll detox, go to therapy sessions, and attend medical appointments.
But it’s also important that you enjoy your stay.
Otherwise, you’ll feel less motivated to push forward. Both luxury and regular rehab offer ways to make your time as enjoyable as possible. Still, a few differences are essential when deciding the best one for you.
Traditional Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation
You should expect certain services when you participate in drug and alcohol rehab.
Drug Detox Services
The first step when beginning addiction recovery is starting your detox from the substance. Medical specialists, including physicians or nurses, will monitor your vitals and support you in the withdrawal process. Detoxing eliminates the physical dependency and allows you to focus on the mental and emotional dependency.
Access to Addiction Specialists
A rehabilitation center has drug and alcohol addiction specialists with the required state licensing and degrees from accredited universities or colleges.
Often, a center’s team has additional certifications through nonprofit regulatory agencies like the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities International (CARF). This extended measure ensures clients that they have a team of individuals who are highly trained and dedicated to their practice.
Addiction has a significant impact on your mental and emotional state. In 2021, the Addiction Center revealed that at least 30%-40% of alcoholics also experience a depressive disorder.
It’s common for individuals with alcohol or drug addictions to have mental health problems. Addiction can cause mental illness or worsen existing symptoms.
Access to Therapy Sessions
Regular rehabs provide their clients with therapy options. Therapy can look like many different things, with some methods more fitting to you than others.
Types of Therapy That are Commonly Offered at regular Rehab Include:
- Meditation Therapy
- Group Therapy
- Family Therapy
- Music Therapy
- Massage Therapy
- Water Therapy
- Biofeedback Therapy
A regular rehab should be an abstinence-only environment. You’ll want to find a rehab program aligned with your personal health if you have prescription drugs. Keeping an in-patient environment drug-free is important because it removes all temptations for relapse.
Long-Term Recovery Referrals
Once you finish your time at a regular rehab, you should be aware of the long-term recovery options. Rehab works to change mindset and priorities. It gives you tools to stay sober, but it’s also vital to have support from other people in your community.
As you work on your recovery, you can get help from case managers, support groups, and weekly or biweekly therapy sessions.
Luxury Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation
Luxury rehab provides the same options as regular rehab, such as drug detox services, psychiatric treatment, and access to addiction specialists.
The difference is the broader array of treatment options. There will likely be more creative and unique therapy options. For example, at Soul Surgery’s luxury treatment centers, we offer specialty treatments, including:
- MedSpa Holistic Treatment (Chiropractic, gym, acupuncture, IV and massage)
- BioFeedback & Bio Sound Therapy
- Dual Diagnosis Treatment
- EMDR/A.R.T Therapy
- Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)
- Family Program
Luxury rehab is often in settings such as the tropics, desert-scape, or woodland to provide an escape from relapse triggers.
Luxury rehab gives you access to more activities and utilities during your stay. Soul Surgery offers:
- Chef Prepared Meals
- Equine therapy
- Art therapy
- Putting Green
- Cardio Platforms
- Free Weight
- Tennis court
- Basketball court
- Semi-private rooms and suites
Along with the treatment you’re receiving for addiction, rehab provides you with relapse prevention education. Rehab is only part of your recovery process. Once you finish, you’ll be back in the “real world,” navigating your life and making independent decisions.
But you won’t be alone.
The team should inform you of long-term recovery options like weekly therapy, case management, and support groups. Having proper relapse prevention education will teach you to combat urges and from repeating past behaviors that lead to a relapse.
