About Newsweek’s Best Addiction Treatment Centers List

Newsweek listed current addiction statistics in this year’s report introduction, noting an overdose death rate increase of nearly 30% in the United States since 2019.1 Citing the opioid crisis, the 2020 pandemic, and health factors, Newsweek emphasized the importance of recognizing expanding treatment needs. The news agency provides its list of top addiction treatment facilities each year to help people who struggle with addiction find quality care and support when they need it most.

The #1 ranking facility achieved a score of 89.30%, while Desert Cove scored 86.40%. Quality scores had everything from therapists to leisure activities, including ratings for service, case, accommodations, cleanliness, amenities, and follow-up care.

Recommendation scores were a heavy influence on the total score and ran from one to seven. They encompassed quality factors, and participants had to rate their recommendation of a facility based on its attributes. For accreditation scores, Newsweek based its calculations on nine different accrediting bodies. Each possible accreditation comprised 1/9 of the accreditation score.
