Treatment PhilosophyTreatment Philosophy

Addiction affects the mind, body, and the spirit of a human being. At Hotel California By the Sea, we believe that to treat the mind, the body must be ready. This means that detoxification is often a necessary first-step in the recovery process. Acute withdrawal must be treated before other issues are addressed. We meet most of our clients when they are in the detoxification stage (the 1st stage) of treatment. It is our firm belief that the first entity needed from a Clinician or Counselor is trust. Without it, treatment often fails as does the relationship between the client and HCBTS.

At HCBTS, we believe in comprehensive treatment, which addresses the neurochemistry in the brain. Our medical and clinical teams are extremely dedicated to helping our clients understand and heal from the damage done due to one’s addiction through a variety of therapy modalities. For example, our therapists are trained in EMDR therapy which has helped our clients tremendously with past trauma.

At HCBTS, we believe in long-term care because there is a direct correlation between long-term treatment and long-term recovery. To set our clients up for the greatest chances of success, we firmly believe in a step-by-step recovery process where clients move through each step of recovery thoroughly and at their own pace, deemed primarily by our clinical team. Our clinical staff are our clients biggest advocates and truly want what is best for each client. At HCBTS, we never leave our clients in the dark as a huge focus of our clinical team is to plan for each client’s future with treatment planning, discharge planning and aftercare planning. We always plan for our clients future and give them an array of options that will better their lives and help them achieve long-term recovery.

At HCBTS, we believe in a “Team Approach” which gives our clients the best objectivity. Our treatment philosophy and beliefs create a HCBTS family and a home-like atmosphere. At HCBTS, we believe that recovery is not a sprint but rather a marathon that lasts forever and we are by our clients side for all of it, encouraging, empowering and loving them like family through it all.
