Exclusive features at our Outpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab Facility

Located in Orange County, California, our outpatient rehab facility features a structured environment, access to rehab clinicians, evidenced-based treatment therapies and various life skills services all available to patients enrolled in our outpatient programs. Psychiatric assessments are performed on all patients to evaluate their progress in their recovery journey. Dual diagnosis therapies such as EMDR and CBT are available for patients in need of continuing treatment for their mental health conditions. Assistance with educational and professional goals as well as nutritional counseling is also provided to patients who wish to further continue their recovery for long-term sobriety.

Patients will receive Psychiatric Assessments to track the progress of their recovery

Patients in substance addiction rehab programs regularly receive psychiatric evaluations from certified medical physicians to determine any adjustments necessary in the treatment care plan. In some cases, patients who have completed detox and residential treatment programs are still vulnerable to cravings and relapse. In these situations, MAT and other therapeutic treatment methods can be prescribed during patient assessments.  These therapies can help address any co-occurring mental health conditions that may be lingering and ensure the patient is progressing in their journey to recovery.

Specialized therapy for Dual Diagnosis disorders

For patients suffering from co-occurring mental health disorders, outpatient programming offers various forms of therapy to any mental health conditions associated with substance use disorder (SUD). Though mental conditions often occur alongside a substance addiction, they are not always a catalyst for each other. However, because they can be closely linked, mental health conditions should be treated simultaneously with addiction treatments.

Some common mental health disorders often linked to or occur alongside SUD include ADHD, bipolar disorder, personality disorder, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, OCD and PTSD. By addressing the psychological conditions as well as substance use disorders concurrently, patients will have a higher probability of maintaining long-term sobriety.

Access to Career counseling and Educational planning services

At Hotel California by the Sea, our outpatient drug rehab offers additional aftercare services such as professional career services and assistance in finding continuing education programs. For many, the disruption of their substance addiction and entering into outpatient programming meant patients had to put their educational and professional careers on hold. With the guidance and assistance of certified counselors, case managers, and therapists, patients will work to identify and achieve their future professional goals.

With our career resource program, patients will focus on the following aspects: accountability, career-specific feedback, resume assistance, stress management in the professional world and vocational and professional skill development.

For individuals in outpatient drug rehab who need extra assistance with basic life skills, we offer services to help them re-adjust to their new lives free of dependence on drugs and alcohol. Some of the skills addressed in outpatient alcohol and drug rehab include assistance in financial literacy, assistance with time management and work life balance, nutritional counseling, and conflict resolution. 

Health and Wellness Nutritional Counseling

Addiction often causes a number of nutritional deficiencies and malnutrition because of the fact that many addicts go for long periods of time without eating. Excessive alcohol drinking can lead to the development of digestive problems, and excessive usage of stimulant drugs can lead to a disruptive sleep cycle and a lack of appetite for food. All of these factors lead to poor intake of nutrients the body needs in order to properly and healthily function.

At Hotel California by the Sea, our outpatient drug and alcohol detox rehab offers nutritional counseling services for patients. Nutritional professionals educate and assist patients on how to create an individualized and healthy nutritional plan that will in turn be highly beneficial for long-term substance addiction recovery.

Outpatient Therapies to address Substance and Alcohol Addiction 

For patients who are stepping down in level of care from detox and residential programs, as well as patients with less severe cases of addiction, outpatient drug rehab may be the next best step in the recovery process. Our Southern California outpatient facility offers various therapeutic treatments to help those suffering from co-occurring mental health disorders such as anxiety, depression, PTSD and OCD. We offer highly effective therapies such as CBT and DBT as well as a specialized therapy EMDR therapy used to address these mental illnesses.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy

Originally created to help patients suffering from borderline personality disorder, dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) has since been adapted to help treat many other mental health conditions. DBT focuses on learning different techniques and coping mechanisms to manage painful feelings and emotions related to addiction. Patients will learn to regulate their emotions, become more mindful in the present moment and be able to effectively and openly communicate with others regarding emotions that involve their addiction.


Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR) is a type of therapy that focuses on helping patients reformat their emotions, thoughts and behaviors surrounding their addiction. This specialized treatment therapy offered to our patients at Hotel California by the Sea is used to treat our patients with trauma-related substance use disorders. The tracking of rapid eye movements when a patient is confronted with a particularly distressing or traumatic event, helps create a better understanding for the patient’s condition. This key information is then utilized in helping patients change their emotions through a process of eight different phases.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

A common psychological treatment therapy used to change negative thinking and behavioral patterns, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a highly effective treatment to help patients suffering from substance use disorders and alcohol addiction. CBT helps patients change their thinking and behavioral reactions when faced with their addiction. When patients are able to change their unhelpful and negative ways of thinking, they will better be able to effectively cope with their problems and eventually relieve distressing feelings. This form of individual talk therapy in conjunction with other behavioral therapies can help those suffering from mental illness related substance addiction.

Outpatient Rehab Process

Outpatient rehab programming provides structure and accountability to help people recover from their addictions. Many patients who have stepped down in level of care from detox and inpatient residential move into partial hospitalization programming (PHP) or intensive outpatient programming (IOP) where they will continue with their individually developed treatment care plan. Patients will have access to therapists and psychologists, case managers as well as medical physicians for those in need of continued medication assisted treatments.

Treatment can range from 3-5 days a week depending on the recommendations per each patient’s care plan. Throughout the duration of their participation in outpatient programming, patients will also have access to various aftercare services such as assistance in career and educational placement, family support programs, and assistance in finding transitional sober living for those who come from a toxic home environment. The combination of treatment and services create a positive and encouraging environment for our patients to continue to maintain long term recovery.
