Addiction Treatment
for Young Men

Young adults at Hotel California by the Sea are part of a unique program that is structured to facilitate the recovery process.
Recovery from drugs and alcohol addiction requires structure, perseverance, commitment to personal recovery and being a part of a recovery community. Together, these help strengthen a young adult’s resolve to stay sober.


The process of using drugs or alcohol took up a lot of time. Time seeking out drugs or alcohol, time plotting the when and where of substance abuse and time recovering. Each 24-hour period revolved around getting high and recovering from the ramifications, only to start the clock ticking again.

At HCBTS we fill each 24-hour period with comprehensive schedule that helps young adults persevere in their recovery. Upon completing our program, they learn how to persevere in their lives, through staying productive and using their time wisely for personal growth. Here is typical day in our Young Adult Rehab Program:

7:00 – 9:00 Wake, breakfast, meditation walk
9:00 – 2:30 The Center – therapeutic individual and group sessions
4:00 – 5:00 Gym, Outing
6:00 – 8:30 Evening IOP Sessions or Dinner, 12-step meeting, fellowship

Personal Recovery

Addicts in early recovery often know isolation and loneliness well. Good friends were lost, family members became estranged and no one seemed to be around anymore, save for a few drug or alcohol related “friends.” For many it has been a long time since they felt a part of anything at all. Hotel California by the Sea helps young adults rediscover what being a part of something feels like. They become a part of a community of other young adults who have gone through similar experiences. They form a strong bond by getting better together. Soon enough, they begin to realize that life has a lot to offer and they explore life and activities with others in a way that is reminiscent of the awe and wonder of childhood again. Some of the ways that young adults thrive as a part of a community at Hotel California by the Sea is through:

• Quality 12-Step Meetings, many specifically for young adults
• Morning Beach Walk & Meditation on the sand
• Yoga
• Hiking
• Sailing
• Fishing
• Tennis
• Surfing
• Paddle Boarding
• Volleyball
• Laguna Beach Arts Festival & Artist Studio Tours
• Nightly Sunset Meditation Sessions
