Reflections Executive Rehab Facility Philosophy
Reflections' believes in taking a truly personalized approach to drug and alcohol addiction treatment, which is why just six individuals are admitted at a time. Clients receive specially tailored treatment plans and an unparalleled level of care in a comfortable, peaceful, and healing environment. First-class accommodations and a variety of amenities are provided, allowing the group to relax and feel safe as they work toward stability and sobriety.
Areas of Specialization
Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
Dual Diagnosis/ Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment
These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.

ABOUT REFLECTIONS EXECUTIVE REHAB FACILITY
Located in the Bay Area suburb of Novato, Calif., Reflections Executive Rehab Facility is a boutique, luxury treatment center that provides a full continuum of programming for executives and business professionals struggling with addiction and co-occurring disorders. The facility also offers medically managed detox, intensive outpatient care (IOP), and sober housing for residential alumni. In addition to substance abuse, the rehab treats process addictions, including gambling and sex addictions. For clients who identify as LGBT, a specialized track is available.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Upon admission, all clients undergo a comprehensive psychosocial assessment with the clinical director. If necessary, clients begin their stay with medically managed detox, a week-long program designed to minimize the discomfort of withdrawal symptoms. Once stabilized, clients may transition to the center’s residential program.
Reflections’ residential program typically lasts 30, 60, or 90 days, depending on the individual needs of the client. Utilizing a range of treatment modalities, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), the facility offers both individual therapy sessions and process groups that address trauma, anger management, grief and loss, and relapse prevention. Residents also participate in a range of holistic and alternative treatments, including music therapy, artistic expression, yoga, and equine therapy. Medication management is provided as needed.
Prior to a client’s discharge, clinicians provide comprehensive aftercare planning and may encourage the individual to transition into Reflections’ 12-week intensive outpatient program. IOP consists of two individual therapy sessions per week, plus group counseling, family counseling, and art therapy. Residential alumni who require a more intensive level of care may transition into the center’s extended care program, which offers high-end sober housing and 20 hours of clinical programming per week.
Reflections offers a staff-to-client ratio of 3:1. The treatment team includes a psychiatrist, psychologists, nurses, licensed counselors, certified addiction counselors, and holistic treatment specialists.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Reflections’ residential clients stay in a luxurious Mediterranean-style villa situated on two secluded acres.
