Inpatient Alcohol Abuse Treatment In Orange County


Alcoholism is a disease that must be treated in a structured setting with unconditional compassion from experienced treatment providers. So, Hotel California by the Sea created an integrative and caring addiction rehab program that offers multiple types of treatments for those suffering from mild, moderate, and severe alcohol use disorder (AUD).

Alcohol Abuse Treatment

Alcohol abuse is a common problem in the United States. An estimated 15 million people in the United States have some form of AUD, according to the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism.

Our staff of addiction experts knows that it takes a multitude of treatment modalities and a strong support network to recover from AUD. Therefore, the founders of Hotel California by the Sea decided to take a dynamic and fully-integrative approach to treat alcoholism and other substance abuse issues. We weave multiple therapeutic methods into our clients’ alcohol abuse treatment plans so that we can address each and any underlying issue they may suffer from, besides AUD.

Worldwide, 3 million deaths every year result from the harmful use of alcohol; this represents 5.3 % of all deaths.

Signs You Might Need Alcohol Abuse Treatment:


You may or may not be on the fence about whether alcohol abuse treatment is for you. So, we’ve prepared some questions to ask yourself that may give you a more unambiguous indication of whether you should seek a reputable treatment center.

If you’re wondering if you or your loved one might need alcohol abuse treatment, consider these questions:

  • Do I drink to excess, even after promising myself to “cut back” or “only drink wine and beer”?
  • Do I spend a lot of my time and energy seeking out alcohol or recovering from a binge?
  • Do I drink more than 1 drink a day as a woman, and more than 2 drinks a day as a man?
  • Do I try to hide my drinking?
  • Do I suffer withdrawal symptoms when I try to stop drinking?
  • Have I continued drinking despite certain social, financial, and emotional consequences?
  • Do I drink to mask feelings of depression, anxiety, or other uncomfortable sensations?
  • Have my friends, family members, or other loved ones expressed concern about my drinking habits?
  • Do I have a physical and emotional dependence on alcohol?
  • Do I obsess over alcohol?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, it might be time to reach out to a rehab facility that can help you change your relationship with alcohol.

Misconceptions About Alcohol And Alcoholism


Despite alcohol’s popularity, there are still several misconceptions about alcohol. Read below to find out more.

Misconception: Alcohol Isn’t A Drug

Many people assume that alcohol isn’t a drug. However, this is a false assumption. Alcohol is indeed a drug – and a very dangerous one, at that.

Alcohol’s main ingredient, ethanol, is a central nervous system (CNS) depressant. This means that alcohol slows down many of the body’s systems. For example, after drinking, someone may experience slurred speech, imbalance, or slowed heart rate.

Misconception: It Isn’t Easy To Get Addicted To Alcohol

Believe it or not, alcohol is one of the most addictive drugs. Alcohol tends to produce a euphoric feeling for many people, and actually disrupts regular communication between neural transmitters. In short, alcohol makes people feel good. And for those with a family history of alcoholism, this “feel good” sensation brought about by alcohol could be dangerous.

Hotel California Alcohol Abuse Treatment Program


HCBTS’ alcohol abuse treatment program in Orange County, California, helps clients get sober and remain abstinent from alcohol through some of the following practices.

Alcohol Withdrawal Management

Alcohol withdrawal occurs as a result of stopping drinking, or severely decreasing the amount of alcohol that a person is consuming. This abrupt halt in alcohol use can send the person struggling for AUD into full-blown alcohol withdrawal syndrome.

Alcohol withdrawal syndrome can prove to be extremely dangerous. Therefore, most addiction experts recommend that those who are dependent on alcohol detox in a detox facility. Luckily, substance abuse treatment can help people who are detoxing from alcohol. Inpatient rehabs, such as Hotel California by the Sea, offer multiple treatment options for those in need of alcohol withdrawal management.

Common alcohol withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Confusion
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Mood swings
  • Insomnia
  • Fever
  • Seizures
  • Delirium tremens
  • Shaking
  • Gastrointestinal issues, such as vomiting

Hotel California by the Sea follows the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) protocols for alcohol withdrawal management to help clients manage their withdrawal symptoms. Alcohol withdrawal management at Hotel California by the Sea may include a combination of medication management and behavioral therapies.

In detox, our caring medical professionals provide the best medical care possible to clients. Our compassionate and attentive staff monitors clients 24/7 who are currently detoxing from alcohol and other illicit substances.

If you or a loved one consume alcohol to avoid negative emotions or to cope with stress, such as professional or family-related stress, you may have an unhealthy relationship with alcohol. Alcohol abuse and alcoholism have numerous contributing factors, including genetics, family dynamics, social environment, and overall emotional health.
