Twelve Best Drug Rehab Centers in the World for 2021

With so many drug rehab programs in the United States, it can be challenging to determine which ones are the best.

So, we felt it would help people who were unfamiliar with this industry to assemble a list. We took our time, did our homework, and standby these 12 residential treatment centers. Are there other good ones out there? Yes. Many of these are nonprofit organizations, which to us is very important. Nonprofits are not there to make a profit. Their motivation is not money but successful outcomes. We receive no compensation from any of the places on this list.

Here are the criteria used:

  • Accreditation
  • In-Network Insurance
  • Evidence-Based
  • Quality of Clinical Staff
  • State-of-the-Art
  • Individualized Plans
  • Success Rate
  • Address Co-Occurring Disorders
  • Nonprofit
  • Longevity
  • 12-step based
  • Good Reviews

Choosing should be a well-thought-out process. The affected person’s life is on the line. The city and state, along with their phone numbers, are in a table below. Their websites are linked.

These 12 were chosen based on research, industry reputation, and other criteria listed above. Each of them has an outstanding, well-rounded program. Each offers its unique qualities and standards of excellence. Some have been in the industry for a long time. Others bring a more modern approach.

Each has a reputation for quality. All success rates are well above the industry average.

Addiction and alcoholism are symptoms of deeper issues. The only way to overcome addiction is to uncover what is at the core of the problem and then treat it appropriately.

The vast majority of addicts and alcoholics have some other condition besides substance abuse. When a person has both substance abuse and psychiatric disorder, it is called a “co-occurring” disease. We recommend programs with a robust co-occurring component.

The 12-steps originated by Alcoholics Anonymous have been the industry’s philosophical standard for over fifty years. Most programs subscribe to AA’s 12 step model. The problem is it does not work for everyone. For some people, the 12 steps are not appropriate. If someone is a confirmed atheist or agnostic, then a 12-step format is potentially a deterrent. One facility offers a non-12-step alternative, using a secular, therapy-based model.

It is essential to have a plan tailored to meet an individual’s unique needs.
