These places offer business supplies, privacy, and meeting space. There is also luxury rehabs where you will be in a spa-like setting with educational opportunities and your own private suite. There are 12 Step programs like Narcotics Anonymous where it is run by peers like you sharing their stories and meeting up with a sponsor to better help them.
