Our Personal Approach to Drug and Alcohol Rehab

HCBTS’ drug and alcohol rehab implements s a team of professionals to serve our clients by way of evidence-informed behavioral therapies, and attentive medical care. Our team of healthcare professionals at HCBTS’ inpatient rehab facilities and outpatient programs are trained to treat those with co-occurring mental health diagnoses.

As a leading inpatient and outpatient alcohol rehab and drug addiction treatment facility, HCBTS has an in depth, comprehensive approach to the needs of our clients

  • We understand that addiction is a complex brain disease – not a moral dilemma
  • We understand addiction and how it affects brain function
  • We recognize the need for individualized treatment plans
  • We understand that abstinence alone does not heal the whole person

The professionals at HCBTS’ drug and alcohol rehab are deeply committed to helping individuals achieve long term sobriety. Upon arrival at one of our outpatient or inpatient rehab settings, clients are celebrated for taking their first steps into a life of recovery.

Inpatient & Outpatient Alcohol Rehab or Drug Treatments

Drug and alcohol rehab that is individualized based on the needs of each patient has proven more effective than a “one-size fits all approach.” Optimal outcomes of outpatient or inpatient rehab are more often achieved when a person’s treatment plan is customized to suit their own unique circumstances and goals.

Hotel California by the Sea offers inpatient and outpatient alcohol rehab and treatment for substance use disorder designed to treat the whole person. Upon admission to a program at HCBTS, individuals have an opportunity to customize their treatment plan with the help of a licensed clinical professional

Inpatient Rehab Detox Services

Those suffering with substance use disorder often require inpatient rehab when seeking abstinence and recovery as a result of a physical dependency upon the substances frequently used. In many cases, individuals require a drug and alcohol rehab facility with detoxification protocols in place to ensure their safety and reduced physical and emotional discomfort in the earliest days of recovery.

Inpatient Rehab: Drug and Alcohol Rehab

At HCBTS’  inpatient rehab facility, clients are monitored by professionals 24/7. Clients are seen by our medical doctor and all necessary medications are made available. Withdrawal assessments are routinely completed by nursing staff, and results communicated to the attending physician in the effort to track progress and responsiveness to prescribed medications.

Outpatient Drug Rehab & Outpatient Alcohol Rehab

HCBTS’ outpatient alcohol rehab and addiction treatment programs enable clients to transition from the inpatient levels of detoxification and residential care, to a therapeutically less intensive schedule. This allows individuals an opportunity to reintegrate back into regular life without dependency on substances, while still maintaining contact with a supportive network within the facility.

Transitional housing is available to clients as they begin the outpatient treatment phase of their program.

Treatments and Therapies Available at HCBTS

Many people that suffer from substance use disorders have another primary or secondary mental health diagnosis. This is known as having a dual diagnosis. HCBTS specializes in treating such co-occurring disorders.  

Hotel California by the Sea is proud to offer a variety of behavioral therapy modalities including individual and family therapy with licensed clinical professionals, and group therapy with peers where the benefits of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) are explored.  Through these processes, clients can develop their coping and problem-solving abilities, while finding meaningful connection with others and create long-term goals.

Progress of the individual is monitored closely throughout the treatment episode to ensure optimal outcomes and make appropriate modifications to their treatment plan wherever necessary.

We Treat The Whole Person

HCBTS’s outpatient and inpatient rehab facilities assist individuals with much more than their struggles with substance use disorder alone. We have specialized staff to assist clients with any legal, vocational, educational or social dilemmas as they relate to a person’s recovery from addiction. Medical evaluation and testing are important for a client’s overall well-being, as well as the safety of the community. Testing and medical treatment for infectious diseases such as Hepatitis C, tuberculosis, HIV and COVID-19 is available when necessary.

Family Program

The primary focus during a person’s time in inpatient rehab is on their individual therapy and progress. However, alcoholism and addiction often have a profound impact on families. HCBTS offers a thoughtfully developed monthly Family Program for those who have been impacted by their loved one’s disease. 

Our experienced professionals work with families to restore bonds and establish new boundaries so that healing within a family unit can take place.
