Choosing between different Alcohol Rehab Facilities in California is very difficult. The most important factor is to understand what type of facility you could be entering into. A "Lock Down" Facility, where the guest cannot leave or communicate with the outside world is not a good choice. Even the most luxurious alcohol rehabs still treat the person attending as if they are sick, diseased or ill and convince them they need to be on medication to help fight their demons.
