Why are states like California, Florida, Texas and Arizona almost always on the forefront of addiction and alcoholism treatment services
Throughout the United States it has become quite well known among those working within the addiction & alcoholism treatment industry that states like California, Florida, Arizona & Texas tend to be among the most frequented by people needing rehabilitation. Why is this? Is it because some of the most well known facilities are located in these regions? Is it because luxury and higher-end treatment centers tend to offer a broader array of recovery and ancillary components?
People fly to these states from all corners of the world in order to check into some type of rehab, be it for drugs alcohol, eating disorders, co-occurring disorders and so on. Moreover, many choose to stay longer, post-treatment, in order to transition into some of their highly recognized sober living homes as well. Whatever the case may be, and while it’s true that California, Florida, Arizona & Texas tend to draw the most attention in this regard, it is important to realize that many other regions offer wonderful mental health & addiction/alcoholism treatment centers as well.
One of the key differences with these 4 states is that they seem to offer a higher percentage of what appears to be more luxurious, higher-end rehab facilities for men and women. Is this truly the case when compared percentage wise with all the other local recovery services in the region? We don’t know but one thing is for sure, these specific facilities tend to have created a very strong reputation for themselves in a umber of ways. Most of these locations accept health insurance but are costly to the point that a substantial out-of-pocket investment will need to be added to the insurance portion. In turn, there are usually more enhanced clinical services, expanded ancillary services and of course, better cuisine and more privacy.
