There is a demoralizing aspect to having a huge salary and a huge bonus and then having to look for a job that is going to pay much, much less. What I'm hearing is a terrible sense of betrayal, anxiety and people experiencing lots of stress.

Scott J. Lavin, Humanitarian, International Businessman and Heir to Alberto-Culver VO5, whose charitable contributions supported thousands of alcoholics and substance abusers through the best treatment centers and sober living houses, is the inspiration for The Scott, the new five star treatment center now open on the Island of Kauai. Tragically, Scott died from his own battle with drug addiction.

The Scott is an ethical and exclusive treatment center with a team comprised of world-renowned addiction doctors and esteemed counselors, many of whom have long-term recovery from alcoholism or drug addiction. This exclusive inpatient rehabilitation center enjoys a secret path to its very own secluded beach, panoramic ocean views, is perched amidst a classic Hawaiian lush landscape and exudes the comfort and warmth of Aloha. The price point rivals that of other treatment centers and the location, exquisite.

The down-turned economy plays a role in the need for a facility such as The Scott. In a report, "Hard Times in America" Dr. Rosalind Dorlen, a clinical psychologist in Summit, New Jersey, comments on the connection between hard times and addiction. She states, "There is a demoralizing aspect to having a huge salary and a huge bonus and then having to look for a job that is going to pay much, much less. What I'm hearing is a terrible sense of betrayal, anxiety and people experiencing lots of stress." This can lead to an increase in unhealthy coping behaviors, such as alcohol consumption or drug dependency.

"The Scott arrives at a critical time in the treatment industry, as the stand-alone, private, boutique treatment facility has been replaced by the larger treatment "corporatization" of clinical care. The Scott is able to provide individual treatment and recovery to those who suffer from many forms of addiction. Its holistic and integrated model is client centered - not corporate centered," points out Dr. Brigitte Lank, Consultant for The Scott.

The Scott Team executes intensive boutique style therapies that are both clinically traditional, along with a 12-step framework, and non-traditional practices such as Ho'oponopono, an ancient Hawaiian practice of making things right with the world. The upscale alcohol and drug rehab offer light nature excursions throughout the island, business amenities for those clients who need them, and butler service. However, an ethical treatment-model and privacy are always imperial, beyond the luxury accoutrements. They are also able to refer the countries top interventionists for interventions.

"Alcoholics, drug addicts, prescription drug addicts, and more relate best to a professional treatment team who have gone through similar battles. The Scott team is 100% committed to helping our clients recover in the most healing surroundings with a solid foundation. I am always on the lookout for any new cutting-edge treatment that will save a life, as well as a fierce advocate of the Tried & True. Here is the question I have to ask myself? If Scott were alive today, still battling his substance abuse disorder, would this new form of treatment have helped him? That is my Five-Star standard!" points out Kat Conway, Founder and CEO.

All-inclusive and tailored to be spa-oriented, rather than the traditional, clinical feel of other facilities, The Scott Spa amenities include a broad spectrum of spa elixir vitae to rejuvenate and help clients feel better about themselves physically.
