The sunshine State of California is home to many hundreds of rehab centers catering to clients from all over the United States and the International treatment market. California Rehab facilities range in price from around $10,000 per month through to upwards of $130,000 a month for the luxury rehabs in Malibu and upscale treatment facilities in Los Angeles.
California rehabs cover all treatment modalities, from those following a more group focussed 12-step recovery model right through the spectrum of treatment delivery to those centers such as Passages that have pioneered their own ‘Malibu Model’ of treatment which moves away from the 12-step approach to a fully holistic and therapeutic approach.
Worlds Best Rehab feature a guide to the very best rehabs in California. These rehabs are chosen not just for their all-round luxury, yet also for the quality of service and commitment to the goal of long-term complete recovery.

After the decision has been made to undertake a period of rehabilitation one of the first decisions will be to choose between inpatient rehab in California or outpatient treatment. At Worlds Best Rehab we are firm advocates of inpatient treatment models, given the greater chance of long-term complete recovery.
Statistically, those choosing residential treatment in 48-day, 60-day or 90-day programs stand a greater chance of success long-term. The 28-day rehab model can also be successful although do remember that if the 28-days includes a period of medical detox then the total number of ‘therapeutic days’ will be greatly reduced. For this very reason many rehabs in California have after care or secondary treatment options to assist a client reintegrate into their new life in recovery.
Phase one of inpatient California rehab usually starts detoxification and it’s the detox phase of recovery that presents the most brutal physical symptoms of addiction. Detox can be undertaken in a medically supervised home detox environment though this must be under the guidance and direction of a California rehab physician. A poorly managed detox can be fatal as the potentially life-threatening effects of suddenly quitting (withdrawing) from alcohol and substance abuse can be very severe.
For many people it is safest and preferable to detox under medical supervision in a California rehab facility.
Outpatient treatment varies in length, depending on the specific needs of the patient and might require 13-26 hours of treatment participation per week and can last from 3 to 12 months. Outpatient treatment in California can be successful, of that there is no doubt. Though many patients need to draw upon huge reserves of self-motivation and self-discipline to fully recover. And in the midst of active addiction such reserves have generally been exhausted through the very cycle of addiction that leads a patient or their loved ones to consider rehab in California as the only option.
After a successful detox, therapeutic efforts begin at the in earnest at the California rehab of choice to address the underlying symptoms and catalysts that lead to substance abuse and behavioural disorder. During inpatient California rehab this phase of recovery includes therapy, counselling, peer support and medical care if required.
Additionally, many holistic and nutritional therapies can be applied at this stage including nutritional rehabilitation, biochemical restoration, equine therapy, art therapy, yoga, exercise and a raft of local and international techniques. Press here for a full list of the Worlds Best Rehabs.
Substance abuse and co-occurring mental health disorders are responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths globally though when it comes to addiction it can prove very difficult to admit that a problem exists. As a general guide if substance abuse and addictive behaviours are causing a negative effect on any aspect of your life then it’s time to consider a period of rehabilitation and recovery. If you’re questioning whether or not you may need help in rehabilitating your life then it’s very likely that you do, especially if your concerns are around alcohol, opioids or any other psychoactive substance.
According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), Addiction in California is diagnosed on a spectrum of eleven criteria, including:
The severity is determined by how many criteria you meet. For example, if two to three of the criteria apply to you, you would have a mild substance use disorder. But even if you have a mild diagnosis, you should still seek the help of qualified professionals.
There are many different pathways into rehab in California and we still believe that reaching out to rehabs and treatment centers directly is the best way. Obviously you may be referred by your medical specialist or interventionist but it pays to ask whether that physician or referrer will receive a commission for your admission. None of the Rehabs on our Featured California Rehab List have paid us for the privilege. Our expert editors make these choices based solely on treatment modality, facilities, value for money, facilities and an overall commitment to achieving the success of long term recovery.
From making the initial enquiry to a California Rehab our featured treatment centers will work with you to understand the nature of the clients condition and to assess whether their facility or treatment models are best suited to the individual needs and requirements. Often, a client will be based out of State or indeed internationally and the rehab team will work closely alongside other medical and sober transport agencies to ensure a safe and secure transport pathway to admission.
Rehab in California can cost between $10,000 and $150,000 per month depending on the individual rehab. If you’d like to receive our Free Full Color Brochure of our featured California Rehabs then please do leave your details below, in the very strictest of confidence.
