Career Resources Program

Hotel California by the Sea aims to make the transition from outpatient rehab into a life of sustainable recovery outside of treatment as seamless and stress-free as possible. We believe that providing resources and assisting individuals with the small steps towards big life changes is a key factor of one’s success after treatment. Within Hotel California by the Sea’s outpatient alcohol and drug rehab center is the Career Resource Center, the heart of our Career Resources Program. This is a space where individuals can focus on developing the best plan for their future after outpatient rehab. We take pride in aiding our patients achieve their professional goals included within their individual treatment plans. 

Through intensive work with licensed clinicians throughout inpatient and outpatient rehab, individuals have an opportunity to move past negative emotions that may have prevented them from taking beneficial steps in their personal and professional lives. Individuals in the early stages of their recovery at a drug rehab center often become overwhelmed at the prospect of “starting over.” For these patients, our certified counselors and licensed clinical professionals work with each individual to help them throughout the process of rebuilding their lives free of drugs and alcohol.

Professional Substance Abuse Counseling

As patients step down to lower levels of care in substance rehab programs, they will begin transitioning back into the real world. At Hotel California by the Sea, we offer continuing recovery services such as career planning assistance to help patients plan and build new professional goals for life after intensive rehab. Each new patient who seeks out services from the Career Resource Program will have the opportunity to receive professional substance abuse counseling. 

Among the various consequences experienced by people who suffer with a substance use disorder, are those that negatively impact professional and educational paths. Returning to the professional world can be stressful and may initially be difficult for patients newly in recovery of a substance use disorder. Certified counselors, licensed therapists and mentors work closely with individuals on the goals patients set for themselves at the start of their stay in the inpatient alcohol and drug rehab program. Hotel California by the Sea works to ensure that each patient returns to a life where they can be productive, healthy, motivated and excited about their future

College and Education Services

Continuing on to higher education may be of interest for many of our teen and young adult patients in the substance abuse rehab program. Substance use disorder can derail the dreams and aspirations of many individuals. This doesn’t mean they can’t overcome their addictions and live a life beyond their expectations. Every patient who enters into our drug and alcohol rehab programs is assigned a licensed case manager to assist the patient throughout the duration of their time in treatment. This case manager becomes the patient’s personal advocate to guide them through the recommended therapies and the various aftercare services available to them. Certified drug and alcohol counselors are also prepared to assist in the enrollment process to vocational programs or higher education institutes. Patients will also receive assistance in transferring credits from one institution to another, locating the most ideal mode of transportation, and guidance on the best time management practices related to their educational goals.

Life Skills Program

Transitioning back into the professional world after intense substance rehab treatment can be a daunting and stressful process. Patients may feel unprepared and inadequate when it comes to basic life skills needed to be successful in their future. The services offered in the Life Skills Program are intended to promote psychological and physical wellbeing by encouraging individuals to make decisions that have a positive impact on their lives. Patients who choose to participate in this program engage in group and individual therapies that focus specifically on helping them develop effective communication skills, develop comprehensive decision making capabilities and learn how to effectively manage their emotions. 

Topics that may be covered in the Life Skills Program include:

  • Financial literacy
  • Organizational skills
