Benefits and Considerations of Private Rehabs

Choosing between private rehabs for mental health treatment means prioritizing your own well-being and giving yourself the best chance for a full recovery.
Some of the benefits of private rehabs include:
  • Individualized treatment plans tailored to your specific needs
  • A smaller, more intimate setting that allows for personalized attention and care
  • High-quality facilities and accommodations that promote comfort and relaxation
  • Access to a variety of therapy options, including individual, group, and family sessions
  • A comprehensive approach to recovery that addresses the root causes of addiction or mental health issues
While private rehab may involve more out-of-pocket costs, the benefits often outweigh these considerations. In addition, many insurance plans now cover at least a portion of private rehab treatment.

Understanding Private Rehabs

Private rehabs operate independently from public health systems. These facilities are often privately owned and run by companies or individuals.
Private rehabs, such as Vista Taos, offer a range of services that cater to the needs of those seeking treatment for substance abuse, mental health issues, and other behavioral problems.
These rehab centers provide the following benefits:

Personalized Care

One of the hallmarks of private rehabs are the highly personalized care provided to each client. This includes customized treatment plans that cater specifically to an individual’s unique needs, background, and recovery goals.

Luxury Amenities

Private rehabs often resemble high-end resorts or boutique hotels rather than medical institutions. They provide luxury amenities, including private rooms, spa treatments, and recreational facilities, such as swimming pools and fitness centers.
These amenities serve multiple purposes. They make clients’ stays more comfortable, reduce the stress associated with rehabilitation, and create a more inviting atmosphere that encourages clients to complete their programs.


Confidentiality is a top priority in private rehabs, and many centers have strict policies in place to protect their clients’ privacy. This provides individuals seeking treatment with peace of mind knowing that their personal information will not be disclosed without their consent.

The Vista Taos Approach to Private Rehab

Our philosophy is the belief that recovery is a deeply personal journey that varies significantly from one individual to another.
Therefore, our treatment plans are designed not only to address the physical aspects of addiction but also to nurture mental, emotional, and spiritual health. This holistic approach ensures that you receive care that is tailored to your unique needs, experiences, and goals.

Serene Environment Conducive to Healing

Vista Taos Renewal Center is set in a serene landscape that reinforces our commitment to peace and privacy. Our facility is designed to feel more like a retreat than a traditional rehab center.
From spacious, well-appointed private rooms to tranquil outdoor spaces that invite reflection and relaxation, every aspect of our environment is crafted to support your recovery journey.
The calming atmosphere aids in reducing the stress and anxiety that often accompany withdrawal and recovery while also promoting a mindset conducive to healing.

Importance of Individualized, Evidence-Based Treatment in Private Rehabs

Our commitment to evidence-based practice means that we are constantly incorporating the latest research findings into our treatment modalities, ensuring that you receive the most effective care possible.1

Personalized Treatment Plans in Private Rehabs

We recognize that effective addiction treatment is not one-size-fits-all. Each client brings their own unique history, challenges, and goals to the treatment process.
Therefore, we prioritize developing personalized treatment plans that address each client’s specific needs and circumstances.
The creation of your personalized treatment plan for private rehab begins with:

Initial Assessments

When you start treatment, the first step is a series of thorough assessments by our team of experts. These may include:
  • Physical assessment: Evaluating your overall health and any potential medical issues.
  • Psychological evaluation: Identifying any underlying mental health conditions that may contribute to or be impacted by addiction.
  • Substance abuse history: Understanding your patterns of substance use, triggers for use, and past attempts at recovery.
  • Social and environmental factors: Recognizing the role of personal relationships, living environment, work or school stress, and other external factors in addiction.

Identifying Goals and Preferences

Once we have a complete understanding of your unique circumstances, we work with you to establish goals and preferences for treatment. This can be divided into short-term goals that can be achieved during your stay, as well as long-term goals for aftercare and ongoing recovery.

Short-Term Goals

Short-term goals may include:
  • Detoxification from substances
  • Developing coping mechanisms and relapse prevention strategies
  • Addressing underlying mental health issues through therapy and medication management if necessary.

Long-Term Goals

Long-term goals may include:
  • Rebuilding relationships with loved ones
  • Pursuing education or career goals
  • Establishing a healthy routine and self-care practices for ongoing sobriety.

Personalized Treatment Plan

Based on the initial assessments and identified goals, we develop a personalized treatment plan that combines evidence-based therapies, holistic approaches, and individualized care.
This may include:
  • Detox
  • Individual therapy 
  • Group therapy 
  • Alternative therapies 
  • Education
  • Life skills training 
  • Aftercare planning 

Collaborative Approach

Your active involvement in creating your treatment plan is key to successful recovery. From the initial assessments, you are encouraged to share your preferences and needs.
You can be assured that every aspect of your treatment plan is carefully considered and discussed with you so that it aligns with your goals and values. This way, you foster a sense of ownership and responsibility in your recovery process.
We also understand that treatment needs may change over time, so our team conducts regular evaluations. You can provide feedback on what’s working and what isn’t, and together, we can make adjustments for ongoing progress.

Therapeutic Services Offered at Vista Taos

Mental health and addiction are complex issues. That’s why we offer a range of therapeutic modalities and services in our private rehab, including:

Evidence-Based Therapies

The core of our treatment is based on evidence-based practices known for their effectiveness in treating substance use disorders and related conditions.

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT is a highly effective therapy focusing on the interconnection between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It helps you identify and challenge negative thinking patterns.
By recognizing these patterns, you can begin to see how they influence harmful behaviors, such as substance use. CBT also equips you with practical skills to manage these thoughts and make healthier choices, leading to improved coping mechanisms and reduced risk of relapse.2

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

DBT emphasizes emotional regulation and mindfulness. Initially developed to treat borderline personality disorder, DBT has proven highly effective for substance abuse issues by helping manage emotions and reduce conflict in relationships.3
DBT sessions typically involve skills training that includes mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotional regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness. These skills encourage you to remain present, develop healthy ways to cope with stress, regulate emotions, and improve relationships with others.

Motivational Interviewing (MI)

MI is a client-centered therapy that enhances motivation to change by resolving ambivalence. Unlike more prescriptive therapies, MI engages you through an empathetic and accepting dialogue, empowering you to articulate your desire for change in your own words.

Holistic Approaches

Understanding that recovery involves the whole person – mind, body, and spirit – we also integrate holistic approaches into our private rehab that complement traditional therapies:

Mindfulness Practices

Mindfulness practices include a variety of techniques aimed at enhancing self-awareness and acceptance. These techniques often involve meditation, focused breathing, and body scans.
Mindfulness helps you learn to pause and observe your thoughts rather than reacting impulsively. This pause can be the difference between choosing a response that supports recovery and falling back into old, destructive habits.
It encourages a non-reactive awareness, allowing you to recognize cravings and negative emotions as temporary states that you can manage and overcome.


Yoga combines physical movement, breathing techniques, and meditation to promote overall health and well-being.
Practicing yoga can increase body awareness and promote a more positive self-image. It can be a helpful tool in managing the underlying causes of addictive behavior, such as trauma or negative self-perception.

Art Therapy

Art therapy allows you to express yourself without words by using art materials such as paint, clay, or collage.
With the guidance of our therapist, you are encouraged to explore your artwork to understand underlying messages and conflicts that may be affecting your mental health and addictive behaviors.
This form of therapy provides a safe outlet for expressing feelings that may be hard to articulate with words and can be a powerful tool for personal insight and recovery.

Recreational Activities

The recreational activities available at Vista Taos are chosen for enjoyment and their therapeutic value. Engaging in creative pursuits such as painting serves as a form of expressive therapy, allowing you to explore and process emotions through art.
Outdoor activities like hiking or gardening reconnect you with nature, which has been shown to boost mood and mental health.
These activities also encourage social interaction and community involvement, which are key for building supportive networks and enhancing social skills that may have been eroded by addiction.4

Privacy fosters a safe environment where you can be open and honest about your struggles and triumphs.
At Vista Taos, we take your privacy and confidentiality seriously, adhering to all HIPAA regulations and ethical standards. Your personal information will never be shared without your explicit consent.
In addition, we implement strict protocols:

Minimized Disclosure

Information is disclosed only on a need-to-know basis, even within our team. This means that only personnel directly involved in your care have access to their treatment details. Such information is shared only to the extent necessary to provide effective and safe treatment.

Secure Data Systems

We utilize secure electronic systems to store and transmit any sensitive information. Our databases are encrypted and regularly backed up to ensure the safety and confidentiality of your personal data.

Privacy Training

All staff members undergo rigorous privacy and confidentiality training to ensure that they understand the importance of safeguarding client information.
They are trained on how to handle confidential information, what constitutes a breach of privacy, and the consequences of such breaches.

Family Involvement and Support Groups During Recovery

Family members often serve as a primary support network. Engaging families in the recovery process helps to heal relationships affected by addiction and builds a stable environment conducive to long-term recovery.
Our family program is designed to integrate loved ones into the recovery process effectively. This program includes:

Educational Materials and Workshops

We provide comprehensive educational resources that help family members understand addiction as a disease and the recovery process.
These materials are designed to unravel the stages of recovery and explain the psychological and physical impacts of addiction. By being well-informed, families can avoid common pitfalls such as enabling behavior and can instead offer constructive support.

Family Therapy Sessions

These sessions provide a safe space for everyone involved to express their feelings and concerns, enhancing mutual understanding and support. The goal is to repair damaged relationships and rebuild trust while fostering open communication.

Support Groups

These groups allow families to connect with others who are facing similar challenges, share their experiences, and receive emotional and practical support.
This community aspect is invaluable, as it helps families feel less isolated and more empowered through shared experiences and collective wisdom.

The Role of Family in the Healing Process and Ongoing Recovery

The support and involvement of family members are crucial during the recovery process. They can provide love, encouragement, and accountability to help individuals stay on track and achieve long-term recovery.
Furthermore, maintaining healthy relationships with loved ones is essential for ongoing sobriety. It helps individuals feel connected, valued, and supported, reducing the risk of relapse.
Family members can also help to establish healthy boundaries and create a positive living environment that promotes recovery.

Aftercare Planning Following Private Rehabs

Aftercare planning is the process of preparing for the challenges you may face after leaving private rehab. It involves creating a structured plan that addresses your unique needs and supports your continued recovery.
Effective aftercare planning is essential to maintain the progress made during treatment and to prevent relapse. Here, we outline our approach to aftercare and the resources we provide to support you as you reintegrate into your daily life.

Alumni Programs

Our alumni programs are designed to provide ongoing support and connection for those who have completed our treatment programs.
These programs offer the opportunity to stay connected with others who have faced similar challenges, share experiences, and receive continued emotional and practical support.
We also organize regular events, such as workshops, seminars, and group activities, to help you continue your personal growth and development in recovery.

Relapse Prevention Planning

We work with you to develop a personalized relapse prevention plan that includes identifying triggers and warning signs, developing coping strategies, creating a support network, and establishing healthy lifestyle habits.
Our trained counselors will also provide you with the necessary resources and tools to manage cravings and setbacks. With a clear relapse prevention plan in place, you can feel confident in your ability to navigate potential challenges while maintaining your sobriety.

Referrals to Community Resources

Aftercare is a continuous process and may require additional resources beyond our program. We are dedicated to connecting you with community resources and services that can support your recovery journey.
Our goal is to provide you with a comprehensive post-treatment plan that meets your specific needs and helps you maintain long-term sobriety.

Continued Support and Guidance

Our commitment to our clients does not end after treatment. We are here for you every step of the way, providing ongoing support and guidance as needed.
