Finding the best drug rehab centers can be next to impossible. So we decided to take the time to put together a list. With so many recovery programs in the United States, how would anyone know the good from the no-so-good ones?
Choosing a rehabilitation facility should be a thought-out process since the affected person’s life and well-being are on the line. Each facility’s contact information is there for your convenience, including location, phone number, and website.
Recovery from drug and alcohol addiction is a matter of life or death. So going to a good treatment center is essential. We felt a comprehensive list would help people unfamiliar with mental health and addiction treatment. We did our homework and came up with 12 solid, residential, treatment centers. Though there are other good facilities, we stand by these recommendations.
Many of these are nonprofit organizations, which is a significant criterion in our opinion. When an organization is nonprofit, its motivation is not money. Instead, they are more focused on their patients experiencing successful outcomes and receiving quality treatment.
We feel that certain hallmarks make a facility better than the rest. For this reason, we’ve outlined specific criteria that we used to compile this list:
- Accreditation Status whether or not the organization meets the standards of the governing bodies who hold them to specific regulations and standards)
- In-Network Insurance (this indicates the affordability of the facility)
- Evidence-Based (the 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 (this refers to whether or not the facility uses modern and innovative scientific advances when caring for patients)
- Individualized Plans (how personalized and client-centered treatments are according to the needs of each specific patient’s medical and mental health needs)
- Success Rate (this is 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 (this indicates whether or not the organization is for the benefit of the public and not intended to gain a profit for its owners like traditional businesses)
- Longevity (how long the facility has been in operation)
- 12-step Based (this indicates that the facility uses the principles of the 12-step program to assist with recovery)
- Good Reviews (this refers to the positive feedback that the organization has received from patients who have received care there)
Based on research, industry reputation, and the other criteria listed above, each of these rehab facilities were chosen. Their success ratings are also well above the industry average. Here is our alphabetical list of the best twelve drug rehab programs in the United States:

Addiction and alcoholism are mental health conditions that require comprehensive and long-term care. The only way to overcome addiction is to uncover the root problem and treat it appropriately.
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 programs with a robust dual diagnosis treatment program.
The 12-step framework originated from Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and has been the industry’s philosophical standard for over fifty years. Most programs subscribe to AA’s 12-step model, but this does not always work for everyone. For example, if someone is an atheist or agnostic, a 12-step format may not interest them due to its spiritual component. Regardless of what option someone ends up with, it is essential to work with a facility that works closely with the patient to develop a plan for their unique needs.
