Luxury rehabilitation facilities are in most cases private programs that offer a wide variety of amenities that you normally will not find in state and federally funded programs or in most traditional programs such as a hospital rehab. Luxury rehabilitation provides a private environment for your loved one to work on overcoming their substance use and meet nutritional needs, provides activities for maintaining physical fitness needs, educational classes to help address the choices that your loved one makes, to their behaviors and habits, as well as how to address tempting situations and avoid relapse.
Some luxury rehabilitation facilities will allow the use of personal electronic devices such as personal cell phones and laptops, but some do not and may also discourage communication between friends and family, or limit it supervised visits or therapy sessions.
Your first task is getting your loved one into luxury rehabilitation and that means getting your loved one to listen. While some facilities may promote the idea of a confrontational intervention; those types of methods for addressing alcohol and drug use are not very effective, you loved one should also never be approached with an angry, threatening or loud tone.
The point that you want to make is that you are concerned about the health and well being of your loved one. Giving ultimatums and threatening to divorce or kick a family member out of the house if they continue their substance use and refuse to seek help may work for some, but the reality is that they do not work for everyone and sometimes works to only shut down the lines of communication. It is important that you find a luxury rehabilitation program that will keep the lines of communication open and encourage family support and interaction rather than to alienate the individual struggling with substance use and the family.
Most luxury rehabilitation facilities implement 12 steps philosophy into their program. This type of philosophy promotes the belief that your loved one’s drug and alcohol use is a disease and is incurable and it further details that the only treatment available is belief in a higher power, abstinence and meetings for the rest of their life – and in many cases the family too. If the program does not use the 12 steps, they may be solely therapy based. Therapy is not effective if the therapist of addiction councilor is continually interjecting their own judgments or opinions on how your loved one should live their life. In order for someone to make permanent and lasting changes they must do it for themselves not because someone forces them to believe certain things about themselves.
