Success Takes Commitment

People who attend a program go through an intensive therapeutic process. To be successful, the person to be willing to do the work and make significant changes to their lifestyle. Most inpatient alcohol rehab facilities offer 30, 60, and 90-day treatment programs, during which time the patient can leave the program voluntarily if they wish. However, research indicates that the longer a person remains in a substance abuse recovery program, whether it is an inpatient or outpatient program, the greater their chances are of avoiding relapse and maintaining their sobriety.

This list comes from 20 years of experience in the treatment industry. Each of these facilities has its own set of outstanding qualities and attributes, including their staff’s level and state-of-the-art quality of their individualized treatment programs.

These alcoholism programs were chosen based on in-depth research, industry reputation, and speaking with some graduates. Each has an outstanding, well-rounded program. Each is unique and offers its unique qualities and standards of excellence. Some have been in the industry for a long time. Others bring a modern, fresh approach. There are other good rehab centers in the country besides these 10. We stand behind these as our “short-list.” Choices we also made based on geographic location, so they were spread throughout the country as much as possible.

This list helps people looking for excellent treatment programs find them quickly and easily. They are all inpatient, 30-day type residential programs.

Each program treats alcoholism and addiction as diseases. The criteria included staff quality, individualized programs, success rate, living facilities, reviews, and overall integrity.

  • Programs are listed in alphabetical order by name.
  • Each program’s name goes to its website.


The top nonprofits, in general, provide much better treatment services. Attending a nonprofit program avoids the profit motive and corruption in certain parts of the addiction industry. Each is a very reputable program. When an organization is nonprofit, its motivation is not money. Instead, they focus on successful outcomes and providing the highest quality care possible.

We feel these criteria make a facility better, including:

  • Accreditation; Whether it meets the standards of the governing bodies who hold them to specific regulations and standards
  •  In-Network Insurance; Affordability of the facility
  •  Evidence-Based; Quality and reliability of the care provided at the facility
  •  Quality of Clinical Staff; The reputation and educational background of staff who provide the care
  •  State-of-the-Art; Whether or not the facility uses modern and innovative scientific advances when caring for patients
  •  Individualized Plans; How personalized and client-centered treatments to the needs of each patient
  •  Success Rate; Identified by following up with patients to determine how many have sustained recovery after they left the facility
  •  Ability to Address Co-Occurring Disorders; Whether or not patients are getting treatment for all of their conditions as opposed to only the one they came to rehab
  •  Nonprofit; Does the organization is for the benefit of the public
  •  Longevity; How long a facility has been in operation
  •  12-step Based; Does the facility uses the principles of the 12-step program to assist with recovery, or not
  •  Good Reviews; Feedback they receive from patients who have received care

Their success ratings are also well above the industry average. Addiction and alcoholism are mental health conditions that require comprehensive and long-term care.

Many individuals living with substance and alcohol use disorders also have other conditions. When a person has a substance use disorder in addition to a psychiatric disorder, it is called a co-occurring disease.

Therefore, we recommend facilities with solid dual diagnosis program.

Twelve-step model

The 12-step framework originated from Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). It has been the industry’s philosophical, psychological model for over fifty years for a reason, it works. All of these programs subscribe to AA’s 12-step model.
