What Amenities You Should Look For Before Choosing Which California Rehab is Right For You

Choosing a California rehab that fits your specific needs can be difficult.  Once you know what you want out of treatment, you can narrow down the facilities that provide what you are looking for.  Use the guidelines below to help when choosing a California rehab.


The amenities an addiction treatment program offers make a difference in the level of comfort a person receives during their stay in inpatient rehab.  When individuals are comfortable they can focus on the root cause of their addiction and becoming sober.  Common amenities include:

  • Luxury hotel quality accommodations
  • Spa area
  • Exercise area and personal training
  • Yoga studio with instruction
  • Gourmet meals that are freshly prepared daily
  • Internet access
  • Hiking trails or outdoor exercise area
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Customized detox plans
  • Weekly outings

Type of Program

There are two main types of rehab treatment philosophies – 12 step and non-12 step.  12 step programs are rooted in the addicted person’s faith and rely upon group meetings to help sustain lifelong sobriety.  Non-12 step programs typically focus on the behavior of an individual and what can be done to modify those behaviors.

While 12 step programs have been successful for many people, they are not for everyone.  A non-12 step program is ideal for those who have not been successful in a 12 step program or who have personalities or schedules that are not well suited for group therapy.

Client to Staff Ratio

When choosing a California rehab facility, take time to discover the center’s client to staff ratio. Research has found that receiving individualized inpatient rehab treatment is the best way to recovery from addiction and become sober.  A center with a high client to staff ratio is best equipped to provide individual attention and a specialized focus.
