With the thousands of inpatient and outpatient substance abuse recovery programs around the world, choosing the top drug and alcohol rehab center for your needs probably feels overwhelming. Although every family wants to find a program that produces the greatest number of sobriety success stories, even the top alcohol and drug rehab centers in the world don’t share their success rates.

Not only is it difficult to track the current habits of former clients, but how each center defines “success” differs greatly. Some programs only consider strict abstinence as success, while others consider overall healthy living enough.

We ranked our Top Rehab Centers for this year based on a standard of care that indicates a greater likelihood of positive treatment outcomes.

The Küsnacht Practice

The Küsnacht Practice is our first-rated residential substance abuse rehabilitation clinic in the world. It is also among the costliest, but for good reason: The Küsnacht Practice offers onsite detox, has a 2:1 client to staff ratio and offers a comprehensive aftercare program. The average length of treatment for Küsnacht clients is 1 to 3 months, much like other residential rehab centers on our Top Ranked list. The Küsnacht Practice does not accept insurance, and it is located in Switzerland.

12 Keys

Our second-ranked residential rehab is 12 Keys. 12 Keys is a more cost-effective option for addicted individuals who choose to stay in the United States for residential substance abuse treatment. Located on the Gulf coast of Florida, 12 Keys is certified by several field associations. It only accepts a limited number of clients at one time, and keeps the client-to-staff ratio at a low 3:1. 12 Keys also accepts insurance, and provides on-site detox, aftercare and extended care options. Clients typically stay between 1 and 3 months.

Cottonwood de Tucson

Cottonwood de Tucson is our third-ranked rehab center. It is located in Arizona. Clients begin treatment with on-site detox and stay an average of 1 to 3 months. Cottonwood is unusual in that it has a large client-to-staff ratio of 20:1. It also does not provide extended care, but clients who complete the residential portion of the program can continue treatment through aftercare.
