Rehab in Luxury

Rehab in Luxury

In today’s modern world, the word “luxury rehab” has come to be synonymous with a top-shelf resort. Many of us can not imagine luxury rehab facilities without picturing lush, plush rooms, beautiful flat-screen TVs all around, comfortable drapes and plush beds with high thread count pillows. The truth is that many luxury rehabs offer the very same services and amenities that are available in these well-publicized resorts, but the difference is the price. These facilities offer top-notch services at an affordable price tag. They provide their guests with individualized care based on their individual needs and wants. It is for this reason that many people have chosen to stay in a luxury rehab facility instead of staying in a more traditional or full-fledged hotel.

Luxury Rehabs Offer Personalized Treatment Programs

There are many advantages to going to a luxury rehab over a traditional treatment program for a number of reasons. One is that because these programs are more personalized, they tend to have lower levels of alcohol and drug abuse than many other treatment programs. It is believed that the personalization factor makes these programs more effective. Another advantage is that these treatment programs often cater to those who may be suffering from a chemical dependency. These individuals may have a difficult time coping with their addiction on a regular basis, and so it is very helpful if they receive individualized treatment that is geared to their specific needs.

Luxury Rehabs Also Offer Knowledgeable Staff & Useful Amenities

Luxury rehab centers are also better able to handle cases of addiction because their staff is generally much more knowledgeable about the dangers of addiction and can provide support during the recovery process. Luxury rehab centers may also have more amenities such as day care or swimming pools for their guests. It is important to remember however that just because a facility has amenities does not mean that they provide excellent treatment. If the treatment program offered by the center is substandard, it will make the recovery process that much harder. Therefore, it is extremely important to do all that one can to find the right treatment center, and to look beyond the luxury factors in order to find a reputable, effective treatment program.

Types of Treatments Offered in Luxury Rehab

The programs which are housed within luxury rehabs offer many of the same treatments that would be offered in inpatient rehab centers, such as: addiction recovery programs (including social work, communication therapy, life coaching, behavioral treatment, etc. ), medication intervention, lifestyle changes, nutritional support, spiritual support, exercise, and detoxification. Many luxury rehabs even have onsite gyms and other fitness facilities for the patients to use. All luxury rehabs provide personalized service that is focused on each patient’s needs and is tailored to the particular needs of the individual patient.

Discuss Treatment Options With Your Doctor

When comparing luxury rehabs it is important to remember that every program is different and what is best for one person may not be the best option for another. As such, it is essential that you discuss all treatment options with your chosen treatment center and/or doctor thoroughly before signing up for the program(s). Always remember that it is ultimately your choice to enter into any treatment program, however, remember that the most important thing to keep in mind when deciding to enter a luxury rehab is that it is ultimately your choice. No one else can tell you what is best for you, only you can.


Whether you are seeking inpatient treatment or outpatient services, be sure to do your research and consider all of the options available. Some facilities offer a number of complimentary activities and resources to help you along your road to recovery. While others offer aftercare programs and peer counseling services for those who have already completed their treatment. Luxury rehab treatment centers offer everything to help you reclaim your life and re-enter the world.

Inpatient or Outpatient Rehab?

What is Best? Inpatient or Outpatient Rehab?

Within our nation, one in every thirteen people or only abuse liquor or drugs. That is about fourteen million people. The great deal of people who find themselves afflicted by alcohol misuse is shocking, to say too much to handle and the least.

From teens, professionals and habitual users who’re addicted, to drinking or drugs, no single group of Americans can claim immunity. The benefits of a properly implemented drug rehabilitation program works for all.

There’s literally no person who’s unaffected by drug addiction or alcohol abuse. Whether its a parent, spouse, child or friend, drug and alcohol abuse has touched us all.

It boils down to pinpointing the path,and becoming educated on options for inpatient drug and alcohol rehab. That might be every bit as tricky. In actuality, that is just the spot where nonprofit organizations and referral centers come in.

Inpatient Rehabilitation Centers are rehabs that you live in over a predetermined period of time with limited connection to the outside world.

Along with details via tens of tens of thousands of drug rehabs throughout the U.S, you will find an assortment of no or low-cost sources available to offer the strategies you need to start treatment.

The type of rehabilitation center and type of therapies they deliver are important. A simple web search should be able to find information on a treatment center near you that fits your individual needs to fight addiction.

Different recovery centers offer different types of treatment. While nearly all will provide inpatient treatment, many do not offer follow-up outpatient treatment. In addition, there are many newer recovery models that leverage relationships with animals including Equestrian Therapy for drug and alcohol abuse.

living drug free

Regardless of whether your condition requires inpatient rehab or outpatient rehab is strictly unique to your situation. Choosing among the many substance abuse rehabilitation centers located across the country and with diligence you should find the perfect drug or alcohol rehab that fits with your schedule while identifying and treating the underlying addiction.

Every family unit, every person is one of a kind and the patient support from the outside is important. A good drug treatment facility can leverage an outside support system with equestrian and other therapies to fight long term addiction.

Unfortunately, many patients will need to detox before entering inpatient or outpatient treatment. Detoxification is the starting point of the rehabilitation process and is the first step to living a healthy life.

Unfortunately, many people in need of help do not know where to go. They do not know the questions to ask. Truth is…a quick Google search for a drug and alcohol rehab does a great job of decimating that information for you.

MAGNUM Introduces Axon Optics for Migraine Prevention

As a Migraine suffer if you have had the chance to obverse the previous Republican Presidential candidate Congresswoman Michele Bachmann at a sunny afternoon public event and watch her as she speaks what do you fellow Migraineurs notice when you watch the evening news later that day or happen to walk by a news stand with all those glossy photos of the photogenic Congresswoman the following day?

Could it be something odd?  Something strange, no there is nothing odd about the Congresswoman herself, back off you far-left-wingers, no place for harsh gotcha political tactics here readers, this is a health column—not a political column!   Having said that, we perused hundreds and hundreds of rally and event photos on Google and other databases with tens of hundreds of smiling Congresswoman Bachmann ALL sans Dark Eyeglasses or Tinted Eyeglasses of any type?

For a self proclaimed Migraineur that seemed odd! But not unless she simply chooses to risk a possible Migraine trigger for sake of having what many might think is a more marketable image.  These are choices Migraineurs are often forced to take whether we wish too or not every day.

Now for a woman who has gone on the public record in June regards to her Migraine disease:  “Let me be abundantly clear — my ability to function effectively has never been impeded by Migraines and will not affect my ability to serve as commander in chief,” Mrs. Bachmann, Republican of Minnesota, said in a statement. She described the headaches as “easily controlled with medication.” Which may be another reason she feels confident about taking a risk with photophobic triggers seeing as hers are “easily controlled with medication.”

Now we bring up former Presidential Candidate Michele Bachmann because she is one of the most photographed persons in the United States and if you take the time to peruse those countless Bachmann images you will notice one sunny day after another sunny day with thousands of Paparazzi snaps and professional photojournalists capturing the Minnesota Representative never wearing her Migraine preventing sunglasses, or tinted glasses Migraineurs so often don’t go home without!

Over the years this health advocate never goes anywhere without tinted eyewear so I thought it was interesting to see Ms. Buchmann forgoing most Migraine doctor’s advice to avail her possible campaign managers advices.   Do I know this for a fact?

No.  The purpose of using this public figure as an example was to draw attention to the fact for most Migraineurs are photosensitive and can benefit from the proper protective eyewear from a common Migraine trigger.  In no way do we think she is exaggerating her Migraines, just the opposite.

To that fact it appears to highlight how we Migraine sufferers have to take decisions as simple as what some might consider a fashion statement can affect our risk to future attacks.  We applaud all Migraineurs who give up a choice which might help them avoid a trigger to better interact at work or play.

If timing is everything in politics then how nice a major science backed study much stronger than the 1991 Photophobia Filter Study et al R.H.Taylor , F. R. C. S. & M.J. Mortimer, M.R.C.G.P. “The Use of Tinted Glasses in Childhood Migraine”  back when Congresswoman Bachmann made her Migraine disease decree a very hardy study in the prestigious Headache and Migraine disease medical publication called Cephalalgia Magazine came both occurred in June of 2011!

“fMRI Evidence that Precision Ophthalmic Tints Reduce Cortical Hyperactivation in Migraine” What is important for those who don’t realize just how hard it has been to get NIH or any other medical body to conduct Migraine disease or headache disorder research, but that is a whole other story and you can get started by reading up about Headache On the Hill to learn more about the inequity of medical studies.

So we are always grateful to see any, especially ones done by major institutions , and keep in mind studies based around high tech devices such as Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging or functional MRI (fMRI).  The advantages is they allow researchers to actually map the brain and brain function of vetted Migraineurs and you do not need thousands of patients such as a double blind study as it would be very redundant and a waste of very expensive resources as well as cutting into research time for other struggling diseases. We still hope to see more such studies on Migraines continue which is one of the reasons we are writing about it.

Reality, An Understanding of Migraine Disease & Tips for Migraine Management an MAGNUM NMA article,  co-authored by Michael John Coleman and Terri Miller Burchfield.  Which we do agree is a great starting point for anybody to familiarize themselves with the condition.
