Is A Five Star Addiction Recovery Program Really Worth The Price?

Beach for five star addiction recovery program

Addiction afflicts people from all walks of life. Some addicts will never escape the trap, but many will eventually seek treatment and go to rehab. In the past, most rehabs were rather Spartan affairs, grim and discouraging prison-like dorms, and a perhaps considered a somewhat shameful affair. We have seen so many famous people’s public breakdowns and rehab stints – and even a celebrity rehab reality show – that we no longer need to whisper the word rehab. And experts in addiction recovery have largely decided that a Puritanical sort of punishment is not conducive to recovery. Consequently, more and more addiction recovery facilities are offering comfort and luxury to their clients and the notion of a “five star addiction recovery program” is becoming increasingly common.

Gourmet meals, beautifully designed and decorated spacious rooms, high thread count linens and perhaps a lovely private pool are all nice, but does five-star-living improve your chances of recovering from what is, let’s face it, a life-threatening illness? Maybe a little, but it is certainly not the most important thing.

To “get your money’s worth” and more importantly, save your life or the life of a loved one, you have to pick a facility with a great program. That is what is important. The luxury living touches can make the choice of going to recovery a little easier, and it can boost your spirits and help you learn to feel gratitude and optimism, but ultimately success will be achieved through your efforts guided by an excellent program.

Given that addiction can be a matter of life and death, spending as much as you can afford for the best possible support for recovery for yourself or a loved one is not a bad idea. Let’s consider what to look for and how to select a luxury rehab program.

Personalized Treatment

Addiction is complex. There is is no single cure. The best approach for one person is not the best for another. To give someone the best possible support for their efforts to escape the addiction, the program must be designed to reflect the unique physical, emotional, psychological, social, and spiritual causes and consequences of their affliction.

The luxury rehab program at Season Bali offers one on one bespoke treatment. We take one client at a time and tailor a program especially for them. The team takes into account each person’s distinctive personality, history, physical and mental health, current and past substance abuse, and overall life goals.

Ultimately, this means a treatment plan can be formulated as a solution specifically designed for the person being admitted into the program. From the initial assessment through to aftercare, the program is continually assessed and adjusted for the individual concerned.

Beautiful Surroundings Help Cultivate Gratitude

Evidenced Based Approach to Every Phase

Choose a rehab that uses the best available information to guide their practice. Seasons Bali combines the latest research tempered with more than 20 years of expertise to help people get through withdrawal, learn about addiction, benefit from group and individual therapy, and prevent relapse.

A Great Team With Diverse Talents

A program is only as good as the professionals who implement it. To best address addiction, you need a team with tools and skills to help address the problem from all angles.

Seasons Bali handpicks a team from our talented staff of specialists according to the unique needs and background of the individual being admitted to the program. This is client-centred rehab and the chances of successful long-term recovery are optimised from the outset. The team includes a dedicated addiction recovery therapist and trained case managers who support the client 24/7. Our teams blend different types of therapy including approaches such as CBT, motivational interviewing, psychotherapy, and holistic approaches, finding out what works best for the client and emphasizing that.

If a medicated detox is required we provide nurse practitioners and/or doctors to attend and supervise this important first step towards recovery.

Once the client feels able to engage fully in the program, different holistic therapists and alternative approaches are utilised depending on what the team thinks will be most helpful for the client. A nurturing and safe environment is crucial to the recovery process and the professional team is a central part of this. The team must be responsive to the client, so at Seasons Bali, the person being treated is at the center of the team.

Watch out for Vacations With Counseling as an Afterthought

Sadly, there are some predatory and irresponsible, or perhaps just hopelessly incompetent, luxury rehab centers out there in Australia and abroad. These programs are well-packaged spa holidays with a few cookie-cutter sessions with a poorly-qualified counselor. They might feel good for a week or a month, but without a focused plan and skilled professionals who are really focused on recovery, it’s just a vacation.

When you walk out the door, there is a good chance you will still be in the prison of addiction. Real, quality bespoke rehab offers medical and evidence-based treatment delivered by professionals. And they won’t hide the fact that you are going to have to work hard for your recovery and face some painful things. Look for people who are really committed to helping you do the hard work. Don’t throw your money away on a vacation when you need a real rehab.

Five Star Living Won’t Hurt

The program, the staff, and most of all your own brave and sincere efforts are certainly the most important factors for success. But five star living won’t hurt. Learning to feel grateful and optimistic is a very important part of recovery. Being surrounded by a beautiful environment and soothing design makes it easier to cultivate joy and gratitude. You can learn more here about how to consciously boost gratitude and make recovery easier.

Look For A Five Star Addiction Treatment Program, Not A Five Star Vacation

All the perks of a five star addiction recovery program are great and potentially beneficial. But it’s the actual addiction treatment program that makes the service truly worthy of five stars. Look for medically supervised detox, one on one therapy, and a flexible approach to designing individualised trauma-informed care. The one on one program at Seasons Bali offers an evidence-based way to start a new life, free from drugs, alcohol, and other addictions. Seasons Bali also offers complete privacy and discretion for all our clients.
