The Hamptons is a well-known summer getaway destination for the rich and famous on the east coast. Even those who aren’t native New Yorkers have seen enough in movies to know that the wealthy convene on Long Island for a summer of leisure and luxury on secluded private estates.
What is less well known, is that The Hamptons is also an ideal destination for those seeking treatment for drug and alcohol addiction.
When it comes to substance abuse recovery, most people think of sterile, clinical rooms and impersonal staff members when they imagine a rehabilitation center. At The Dunes East Hampton, we are proud to set ourselves apart from this image and provide our residents with comprehensive treatment in a luxurious environment.
Those who come to The Dunes East Hampton for recovery don’t fit the drug addict stereotype either. Our clients are typically high functioning individuals with very stressful, high-powered careers. While their lifestyle affords them many opportunities, the stress and lightning-fast pace often take a toll, and unfortunately, many people choose drugs or alcohol to help them manage life’s burdens.
The Insidious Nature of High-Functioning Substance Abuse
Addiction can affect people from all walks of life. Even the wealthiest and most affluent Americans may suffer from substance abuse, and in many cases, without even realizing or acknowledging the problem.
Alcohol is a staple of American life, and while many people responsibly enjoy drinking, high-functioning alcoholism is extremely common in the upper echelons of society.
It’s also vital to recognize the dangers of many seemingly safe medications. Prescription opioid painkillers are extremely habit forming and are the leading cause of drug overdose deaths in the country. Prescription benzodiazepines used to treat anxiety and depression, like Xanax and Valium, are also highly addictive. Unfortunately, many people mistakenly assume that these drugs are safe because a doctor prescribed them. But the truth is that prolonged use of these habit-forming prescription drugs can lead to serious, even life-threatening, addiction.

If you take prescription medication but cannot function properly without it, you may have a substance abuse problem.
It’s easy to fall into habits when things are going well, and some unhealthy patterns may seem harmless as they become more normal. However, if a substance is critical to your day-to-day activities, it is only a matter of time before it takes over your life.
Don’t wait for it to get worse. Instead of ignoring the problem until an emergency situation drives you into rehab, spend this summer in the Hamptons at our beautiful campus and recover in luxury at a time of your choosing.
Take Back Control from Addiction
If you rely on any kind of substance to keep functioning, now is the time to take back control and create a more balanced and happy life.
And the good news is, you don’t have to settle for anything less than the best when it comes to addiction treatment. Not only will you have access to the latest cutting-edge treatment methodologies, you’ll also be able to enjoy luxurious amenities every day during your stay.
Consider this the ultimate form of self-care. By choosing treatment at The Dunes, you’ll not only kick the habit, you’ll be empowered to create the life you deserve, healthy and in control, without sacrificing lifestyle or dignity in the process.
Where the Best of Life Meets the Best in Treatment
At The Dunes, you can expect a wealth of top-quality treatment, therapy, and counseling options.
There is no single perfect solution to addiction – every person has different needs, goals, and past traumas that play significant roles in recovery. For this reason, we develop custom-tailored treatment plans for every one of our clients.
Unlike other rehabilitation facilities that require you to be completely cut off from the outside world, we allow a certain amount of time each day for you to take care of critical work obligations and stay in touch with family. We understand the needs of high-powered individuals and work to make rehab work for you.
What to Expect During a Summer at The Dunes East Hampton
Our residents are accustomed to luxurious lifestyles, and we don’t believe they should have to sacrifice an enjoyable atmosphere during their treatment.
Charming Hamptons Estate
Residents enjoy privacy and security at our secluded residence in the Hamptons, as well as the finest amenities. Our tranquil estate features many walking paths and nature trails, and close proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and Napeague Bay.
Don’t come to The Dunes expecting hospital-grade fare. Our in-house, five-star chef creates gourmet meals customized to your particular nutritional needs and health goals.
This is especially important as your body detoxes from harmful substances and is in urgent need of replenishment of vital nutrients.
Our residents can work out, enjoy a massage, and take advantage of holistic treatments such as yoga, reiki, and acupuncture.
These are just a few of the many wonderful physical therapies we offer at our campus, and our staff will devise a treatment plan that incorporates various recovery options uniquely tailored to your needs and goals.
Addiction is far more than just a physical issue. Our counseling services aim to help our residents explore their addictive behaviors, past traumas, and other factors of their lives that may have contributed to their substance abuse.
During counseling, our residents develop healthy coping skills and learn to approach problems constructively and find ways to solve their problems without the need for drugs or alcohol.
Our therapy is led by Dr. Howard J. Shaffer, an Associate Professor at Harvard Medical School and one of the top experts on addiction and treatment.
