About Us

Our Mission

Hotel California by the Sea’s mission is to provide the best evidence-based individualized treatment and services to men, women, and young adults who are struggling with addiction, substance use disorders and co-occurring mental health conditions. Our goal is to provide a caring treatment environment and platform of healing that enables our clients to achieve and maintain long-term sobriety, recovery and positive life change.

What Makes Us Different

Led by Carl Mosen and Kevin Mello, our leadership team brings 30+ years of professionalism, experience, passion and knowledge to the addiction treatment field. Since 1986, Carl and his team have set the footprint for quality and ethical addiction treatment for men, women and young adults struggling with substance use disorders, co-occurring disorders and mental health conditions. Carl and his team go the extra mile to provide their clients with specified residential programs that meet and treat the specific needs of each individual in our program. Teaching our clients how to live fulfilling, healthy and sober lifestyles and how to create positive life change(s) and stimulate personal growth are at the cornerstone of our addiction treatment program at Hotel California by the Sea. In addition to having one of the highest staff to client ratios in the nation and providing our clients with a team of recovery coaches and client advocates (in addition to their individual clinical team), Hotel California by the Sea also offers a career resource center program, a court services program, a monthly family therapy program, and a variety of luxury accommodations that include but are not limited to: yacht outings, experiential therapy, cell phone and laptop access, private suites and gym memberships.

What Makes Us Different

Treatment Philosophy

Hotel California by the Sea is a dual-diagnosis drug and alcohol treatment program located in Newport Beach, California, Huntington Beach, California, Bellevue, Washington, Cincinnati, Ohio and St. Louis, Missouri. We offer all levels of care including detoxification, residential treatment, intensive outpatient treatment, outpatient treatment and transitional living accommodations. By offering all levels of care, our clients are able to complete each step of their recovery program at their own pace.

At Hotel California by the Sea we create a safe and comfortable home-like atmosphere that enables our clients to achieve and maintain long-term sobriety, recovery and positive life change. It is our goal to provide the best evidence-based individualized treatment and services to men, women and young adults who are struggling with addiction, substance use disorders and co-occurring mental health conditions. Our team of experienced and compassionate treatment professionals at Hotel California by the Sea utilize the best evidence-based practices in addiction medicine, psychiatry, and behavioral healthcare. Our team creates a customized treatment plan for each of our clients that addresses and meets their individual needs because we understand the complexity of addiction and do not feel that a one-size-fits-all treatment regimen best serves our clients.
Another important component of our treatment program at Hotel California by the Sea is effectively preparing our clients for life after treatment. We do this by incorporating regular day-to-day activities into our clients’ treatment plans. Our clients participate in many different outdoor recreational outings, casual social activities, and they are encouraged to spend time with family or friends—all within appropriate limits, pre-approved by our clinical team. Through these types of “real-world” experiences, it is our hope that our clients may feel more comfortable among their peers, understand that it is possible to have fun in sobriety and have countless opportunities to practice their new coping skills in real-world situations all while having the support and guidance of their clinical treatment team.
