Individualized approach to Drug and Alcohol Rehab

With a unique individualized approach to drug and alcohol rehab, our dedicated gender specific programs for men, women and young adults offer the best opportunities for patients to successfully recover from their drug and alcohol addiction. When patients enter into our inpatient or outpatient alcohol rehab, they are assigned a clinical team to help with their individual needs to support them every step of the recovery process.

Hotel California by the Sea’s drug and alcohol rehab implements a team of professionals to serve our clients by way of evidence-based behavioral therapies and attentive medical care. Our team of healthcare professionals at Hotel California by the Sea’s inpatient rehab facilities and outpatient programs are also trained to treat those who suffer from co-occurring mental health diagnoses related to their addictions. We are deeply committed to helping individuals achieve long term sobriety. 


Inpatient & Outpatient Alcohol Rehab and Drug Treatments 

Drug and alcohol rehab at Hotel California by The Sea offers individualized treatment plans customized to fit the needs of each of our patients. There is no “one size fits all approach.” During inpatient rehab, individuals will be medically and psychologically assessed by our clinical team. This information will allow them to build a unique treatment plan for the best optimal outcome. This may include medication withdrawal management and various cognitive therapies

Once inpatient rehab has been completed, patients will move on to outpatient alcohol rehab facilities that will offer continuing group and individual therapy sessions. Our program also offers services such as career and education placement, family therapy, and access to transitional sober living. We are committed to assisting our patients in long-term sobriety through our medically certified detox programs, effective group and individual therapies and continuing support services.

Inpatient Detox Services

Individuals suffering from AUD (alcohol use disorder) or SUD (substance use disorder) who become physically dependent on substances, often require inpatient rehab services to help them overcome their addictions. Medical detox is the first step in rehab toward a goal for long-term recovery. Inpatient drug and alcohol rehab facilities have detox protocols in place to ensure safety and reduced physical and emotional discomfort during the earliest days of recovery. Medical physicians and detox healthcare professionals use medication assisted treatment programs for patients with severe cases of withdrawal symptoms during detox.

Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab

During inpatient drug and alcohol rehab, patients receive around-the-clock care and are given daily assessments from our medical physicians and clinical nursing staff. This is to ensure the health and well-being of each patient as well as make necessary adjustments to medications per the patient’s status during the recovery process. Inpatient residential programs also treat individuals suffering from co-occurring mental health disorders. Patients will receive cognitive and behavioral therapies to help understand and treat the underlying causes of their addiction. Some of the most common therapies include CBT, group therapy and EMDR. 

Outpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab 

In outpatient alcohol rehab programs such as PHP and IOP, patients prepare to transition back into the daily stresses of life without the dependency of substances. As per their rehab clinical team, patients continue group and individual therapies as part of their continuing recovery. Other services such as marriage and family counseling, transitional sober housing options and career service resources are also available for patients as they transition out of intensive rehab programs. Although patients are no longer in a carefully controlled environment, they still have a supported network of personnel and services at their disposal for the remainder of their recovery. 

Effective Treatments and Therapies

Many people that suffer from substance use disorders also have another primary or secondary mental health diagnosis. This is known as having a dual diagnosis. Hotel California by the Sea specializes in treating such co-occurring disorders in conjunction with medical addiction treatments. Patients will begin treatment therapy during their residential inpatient stay and will continue throughout outpatient programs as per the recommendation of their treatment plan. 

Through licensed clinical professionals, patients participate in various therapies effective in treating co-occurring mental health disorders. These may include CBT, DBT, EMDR and group therapy. Patients learn the root cause of their addiction, learn new coping techniques, and learn how to implement these new techniques into their new lives free of substance dependency. Progress of the patient is monitored closely throughout the treatment program to ensure optimal outcomes and make appropriate modifications to their treatment plan wherever necessary.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy was originally developed to help individuals suffering from alcoholism as a relapse prevention method. It has since been adapted for other substance use disorders as a type of addiction treatment therapy. In CBT, patients will learn how to identify both positive and negative consequences of their addiction, how to recognize early signs of cravings and how to develop strategies to avoid risky situations involving substance and alcohol use. 

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical Behavior Therapy is a form of CBT that focuses on the validation and acceptance of negative feelings and emotions associated with the patient’s substance addiction. This type of therapy emphasizes finding balance between acceptance and change. In terms of AUD or SUD, patients learn to accept some of the emotional consequences of their addiction while also learning to change other aspects. DBT has been proven very effective in helping patients identify and treat co-occurring mental disorders related to their substance abuse addiction.

EMDR (Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy)

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy is most commonly used for patients who suffer from PTSD. Many individuals with AUD and SUD also have co-occurring mental disorders such as depression, anxiety and PTSD. Studies have shown that PTSD is one of the most common forms of mental disorders associated with addiction. With EMDR therapy, patients are subjected to visual stimulation associated with their addiction and learn how to turn the negative emotions into positive feelings.

Marriage and Family Therapy

Individuals suffering from substance addiction are not always suffering alone. Sometimes marriages and family relationships can be affected by an individual’s actions and emotions related to their addiction. Marriage and family therapy treats the addiction with the patient and their loved ones as a whole unit. It is a safe and structured environment for loved ones to listen, understand and set safe boundaries for each other when dealing with an individual in drug and alcohol rehab. 

Group Therapy

Group therapy sessions are especially effective for our teens and young adult patients in drug and alcohol rehab. Patients are more willing to open up to their peers in a safe environment where individuals can listen, share and support each other as they maneuver through similar experiences during the recovery process. Participants in group therapy helps patients develop meaningful relationships with peers and helps keep each other accountable to maintain their goals for recovery. 

Our Holistic approach to Substance Abuse Treatment

Oftentimes patients who enter into our drug and alcohol rehab program are struggling with much more than just a substance addiction. Co-occurring mental health disorders, past and present trauma and other medical conditions may be present in the patient’s health check and should be taken into consideration when formulating a personalized treatment plan. Upon entering inpatient drug and alcohol rehab, patients will receive a complete medical assessment by certified physicians and clinical staff. By covering all aspects of a person’s mental, emotional and physical health, we are implementing a holistic approach to treatment. Testing and medical treatment for infectious diseases such as hepatitis C, tuberculosis, HIV and COVID-19 is available when necessary. At Hotel California by the Sea we treat the whole person.
