About the Program

When you go through Sober Living by the Sea drug treatment programs, you join a support network that lasts a lifetime.

Rehab Facility Description
Just steps from the shoreline in Newport Beach, one of the most beautiful beach communities in Southern California, Sober Living by the Sea Drug and Alcohol Treatment Center provides alcohol and drug treatment to those in need of rehabilitation for drug addiction, alcoholism, chemical dependency, substance abuse and other harmful drug addictions. When you go through Sober Living by the Sea drug treatment programs, you join a support network that lasts a lifetime.
Family Rehabilitation Program
We recognize addiction as a family disease and encourage the entire family to participate in treatment whenever possible. At Sober Living by The Sea, we offer a program specifically designed to assist families in crisis as a result of substance abuse. While the substance abuser goes through an appropriate treatment program, family members are educated about the disease process of chemical dependency and how they have each been affected. They are given the life tools necessary to reconcile current issues facing their family. The family also receives counseling from our highly trained family counselors on a regular basis and can receive further family advisement beyond treatment.

12 Step Involvement
Subscribing to the philosophy of the 12-Step Program, Sober Living By The Sea promotes the basics tenets of Alcoholics Anonymous, teaching recovering alcoholics how to survive in the real world.

Treatment Options

At Sober Living by the Sea Treatment Centers, we recognize each client as an individual. We know each has specific needs and no two people are alike. We offer clients better options than living life in emotional turmoil…options they may never have been aware of before visiting our centers.

Treatment is geared to teach clients that there truly can be a life free of chemical dependency. Clients discover that living sober is actually more rewarding and even more fun.

We begin by assessing the most appropriate level of care. Treatment plans are then developed to meet the client's specific needs and goals. These plans include three phases: Extended Care, Continuing Care and Transitional Care.

SLBTS Treatment Centers are part of our community, we have developed relationships with other treatment facilities and can work in tandem when services such as detoxification, acute medical or psychiatric care are required for clients.

Additionally, we have developed relationships with Saddleback Community College and other educational facilities in the area to assist clients achieve their goals of continuing their education while in treatment.

Through our unique T.E.A.C.H. Program, clients can receive their G.E.D. or diploma from their own high school, and even earn university credits from an accredited college. This program – or “track” of higher learning – continues to receive high marks from clients and educational professionals alike. But this is just one of the many programs we have available to our clients.

We offer several treatment programs or "tracks" to healing:

  • Drug & Alcohol Extended Care – Offering treatment of chemical dependency and ongoing treatment needs.
  • Outpatient Program – Through referrals to Orange County area facilities and therapists, an outpatient program offers persons seeking alcohol and drug treatment the flexibility to work and accomplish recovery goals, while residing outside of an inpatient facilitiy.
  • Transitional Work Program – A highly monitored program that allows the client the opportunity to work and participate in treatment.
  • T.E.A.C.H. – A college-accredited program for continued education while in treatment.
  • Dual Diagnosis Track – When more than one diagnosis is present.
  • Family Programs – Because addiction affects every member of a chemically dependent person's family, we have programs in place to help them heal.
  • Treatment for Eating Disorders – Offering specially trained professionals to treat bulimia and anorexia nervosa, and the underlying causes of these debilitating diseases.
  • Alternative Sentencing Program – Assists persons needing support and counseling when confronting serious legal issues, job continuation concerns, and family maintenance matters.
  • Celebrate Recovery – A spiritual exploration into treatment that utilizes the client's own religious belief system.
  • Reflections Adult Program – A specially designed program, with a daily schedule created to fit the specific needs of the more mature client.

Rehab Activities

Here at Sober Living by the Sea in fun and sunny Newport Beach, we have learned to create an addiction treatment program that balances positive recovery education with physical and social activities.

Is there a connection between the mind and body?

We believe there is, and we're not alone. Many of the physicians and mental health professionals we interact with agree. Our colleagues see many patients who come to them for relief from alcoholism, drug addiction, or other physical ailments. In many cases, these patients are suffering from depression or anxiety disorders.

Here in Orange County California, we understand that chemical dependency and emotional issues often go hand in hand with deterioration of a client's physical well-being. We make sure that a physical fitness program is part of every client's rehab treatment plan. There is good reason to believe the recovery process is aided by a schedule of physical exercise. Several studies have found that exercise can trigger a feeling of happiness, tranquility, euphoria and creativity that can last anywhere from just minutes to several hours. Why not take advantage of such healing properties?

Balancing Addiction Education with Enjoyable Physical and Social Activities

Here at Sober Living by the Sea in fun and sunny Newport Beach, we have learned to create an addiction treatment program that balances positive recovery education with physical and social activities.

Our clients enjoy spending time in our vibrant recovery community here in Orange County, California and we keep them learning about their alcoholism or drug addiction on a daily basis by attending:

  • addiction workshops
  • recovery lectures
  • family groups
  • one-on-one and group therapy
  • 12-Step Recovery Meetings

But there are only so many hours in a day that a client can sit in groups and counseling sessions effectively. This is why the experience of recovering from addiction or an eating disorder in Newport Beach California is so beneficial. Clients will have opportunities to enjoy exercise and many outdoors activities to rebuild their confidence and strength. Many clients who come here after years of abusing alcohol or drugs like meth or cocaine are of the opinion that life will not be enjoyable without their drug of choice.

Meth users in particular are loathe to accept that they will soon be having fun in the sun without taking speed. That is why our mandatory activities are so effective. It will not be long until our clients are experiencing physically challenging and esteem building recovery activities in the Southern California area. Southern California has so much to offer recovering men and women and we do not just take our clients to the gym. There are many other fun social and esteem-building recovery activities we offer. Here is a partial list:

There are fun outdoors activities like:

  • Beachfront Barbeques
  • Sailing off of Newport Coast
  • Sports Fishing (weekly) off of the Newport Coast
  • Sand Castle Competitions
  • Disneyland
  • Universal Studios
  • Knott's Berry Farm
  • Palm Springs Excursion

and there are physical activities like:

  • Daily 24 Hour Fitness visits
  • Softball
  • Basketball
  • 5K Run
  • Golfing
  • Yoga

also, there are esteem building and enriching activities like:

  • Art Museums
  • Botanical Gardens Trip
  • Sawdust Festival
  • Movies
  • San Diego Zoo
  • Long Beach Aquarium
  • Church Visits (optional)

There is an activity offered every day of the week for our client to take advantage of. Our recovering clients will be out in the community learning enriching things and expanding their horizons at museums and community events some days and on other days will be having the time of their life at Orange County amusement parks. The important thing is that the men and women in our program will be with other recovering people (including chaperones from our treatment facility) feel like they are members of society and not living in a drug rehab. Soon after that client who was so entrenched in using speed (meth), alcohol, crack cocaine, or other drugs starts participating in physical and fun recovery activities, they will find that they are getting enjoyment out of participating in sober activities and building their strength back up to continue their recovery for the long term.

Treatment and Philosophy

It is our goal to help clients reach sobriety and maintain it. We do this in a number of ways, including specialized educational recovery programs. As clients go through the drug treatment and eating disorder rehabilitation treatment process, they learn that there really are other options. They master the skills necessary to recognize these options and how to incorporate them into daily activities. They may discover that the key to success is not in hiding from situations and relationships that may trigger their addictive behaviors, but that they have the power to make better choices to achieve the healthier lifestyle they desire.
