Most if not all rehabs by their very nature are private places. They are forbidden to list any of their patients online, or even to tell someone calling the name of someone staying there.
The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO), oversees many if not all of the rehabs in the nation and they have strict policies for their accreditation.
The Cirque Lodge in Utah is where Lindsay Lohan just checked in. She will [most likely] sit in groups with other addicts, go to individual counseling, attend some meetings and try to stay sober. The very same thing happens in other rehabs around the country that don’t cost 36k a week.
Do you think celebrities want to check into these high priced rehabs for privacy or because they think they are somehow better than your run-of-the-mill rehabs? An addict is an addict is an addict. Whether you are from Yale or jail, you have the very same problem - Addiction. Having worked in a rehab, and knowing what it means to live a sober life, I wonder why stars pay so much money over what their insurance will pay for to get the “very best” care they can.
Perhaps they love their celebrity status. Maybe they think they will fit in better in a high priced place? Maybe they think they can stay sober by expending thousands of dollars.
Why do you think they check into the posh rehabs?
Personally, I’ve been around enough alcoholics that most need every drink they are going to drink before they take sobriety seriously. It’s tough for these young celebrities, all those high priced parties, all that temptation for fun drugs and alcohol…it takes a lot of will power to say, …“Nah…I’ll have a Diet Pepsi…” instead of a Grey Goose Martini…
As we have seen many can’t handle it.
