While most people who go to rehab look for somewhere to recover and find inner peace, but won’t really spend much money on it, as they have lost so much on drugs or alcohol; there are always those with pretty much unlimited resources, seeking recovery in the most luxurious ways, more resembling a vacation than an actual treatment. Check out some of America’s most extensive rehab centers right here:
Cirque Lodge, Sundance, Utah
Mary-Kate Olsen, Eva Mendes, Kirsten Dunst and Lindsay Lohan have stayed in this resort, um, rehab center. It is located in a lodge overlooking a famous ski resort, and provides many recreational and outdoor activities such as activities such as hiking, climbing, rafting, and fishing as part of the healing process. Sounds more like a vacation, right? Perhaps that’s why it costs $26,000 a month.
Rated no.1 Rehab center in the world, this place has an exclusive reputation for its notable clientele (including Mel Gibson, David Hasselhoff, Andy Dick, Stephen Baldwinand) and for its limitation of only 12 guests in the 15, 500-square foot residence, which includes two juice bars, a library, a chef kitchen, as well as private luxury bedrooms equipped with marble baths. The basic program runs 30 days, and begins $80,000 for a shared room, going up to $111,000 for a private room.
The Dunes, East Hampton, N.Y.
This incredible center has a pool, spa, tennis court, gym, media room, personal trainer, and individually designed nutritional meals – sounds more like a Hamptons resort than an actual rehab facility right? too bad it will cost you about 105,000$ to participate in the recommended 90-day program.
Crossroads Centre Antigua
Mind the fact it is located in the Caribbean, this beachfront facility, which was founded by Eric Clapton, includes yoga and mediation classes in addition to the rehab program, and the four-week program will only set you back $24,500. This place’s alumni list includes Britney Spears, Whitney Houston, Colin Farrell and Billy Joel.
Promises Treatment Centre, Malibu
To ensure that every client receives private luxury service, the facility limits the number of guests to 6 in each estate. The list celebrities of celebrities who have paid $9,000 a week to spend time in here includes Lindsay Lohan, Robert Downey, Jr., Andy Dick, Charlie Sheen, Matthew Perry, Britney Spears, Christian Slater, Diana Ross, Tim Allen and Ben Affleck.
Betty Ford Clinic, Rancho Mirage
The Betty Ford Clinic is probably the strictest celebrity rehab facility, in which celebrities are treated just like us commoners, doing their own chores and still check out how many celebs checked in here: David Hasselhoff, Keith Urban, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ozzy Osbourne, Chevy Chase, Drew Barrymore, Billy Joel, Liza Minnelli, Bobby Brown, Elizabeth Taylor, Stevie Nicks, Johnny Cash, Alice Cooper. What is the price, you ask? a reasonable $26,000 per month.
Silver Hill Hospital, Connecticut
Not exactly your typical rehab center, staying here would set you back 1,200$ per day, but you could enjoy the scenery and isolated 60 acres facility and perhaps run into Mariah Carey, Truman Capote, Nick Nolte, Billy Joel or Liza Minnelli.
The Meadows, Arizona
The center, in which Tiger Woods recovered, has got real character with its serene surroundings, fountains, and wide-open spaces, perhaps that’s why it costs $33,500 for a 35-day program. They also offer 5 day programs to those who are unable to participate in longer programs or are just needing to find their way back after completing rehab.
Wonderland, Los Angeles
Here’s another rehab center Lindsay Lohan has spent time in, as well as Mike Tyson, Christian Slater, Pat O’Brien and Michael Jackson. This extravagant facility, which costs $58,000 per month but boasts luxurious rooms with fluffy beds and high ceilings. The center is so accustomed to working with celebs they even offer a “Set and Tour Support” which means a support staff member accompanies the guest on set to make sure they are not giving in to temptation.
