Any person that has habitually abused drugs and/ or alcohol has likely developed a tolerance to the abused substance or substances.

When drug tolerance is built, one’s body begins to rely on the substance to function optimally. If the body lacks the previously abused substance, it will react accordingly, and withdrawal symptoms will ensue. Detoxification, also referred to as detox, is the process that cleanses one’s body of foreign substances. An individual’s detox experience will depend on a variety of contributing factors. These can include one’s personal health history, the type of substance abused, the potency of the substance, the frequency of abuse, the length of time the individual abused the substance if he or she simultaneously abused other substances, and the presence of any co-morbid disorders will all factor into one’s detox experience and associated withdrawal symptoms. There are a variety of detox options available, including luxury detox centers. When searching for a luxury detox center, consider narrowing down your options by asking any prospective program the following questions:

    1. What components of your detox program is luxury? 
  • Is it less restrictive than the typical detox program?
  • Is it more discreet than the typical detox program?
  • Can you provide me with a list of high-end amenities? 
  • What are the qualifications and backgrounds of your clinical staff members, group leaders, and residential staff members?
  • What are your accommodations like, and how are they more luxurious than a typical non-luxury detox center?
  • What is your success rate?
  • Who is responsible for your medication management?
  • Will your program help assess what’s the next best step? 
  • If so, how do you assess for the next best steps and when does this process begin?
  • What are some typical transitional plans that are recommended?
  • Do clients have their own rooms?
  • What is the typical length of stay?
  • Who are the other clients in terms of profile, treatment goals, and overall functioning?

It is important to note that the term luxury is inherently subjective. What may feel luxurious to one person may not to another. Therefore, it is essential to conduct due diligence to ensure the luxury detox center one selects accurately meets all his or her criteria and aligns with his or her understanding of luxury.
