Whatever age, gender or drug of abuse, we have a program designed to produce lasting change.
Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) February 23, 2011
Sober Living by the Sea is celebrating 25 years as a leader in the treatment of addiction and dual disorders.
With new research and an improved understanding of the disease of addiction, alcohol and drug treatment has come a long way in the past 25 years. Sober Living by the Sea has been on the forefront of the latest developments in the field, offering a blend of traditional approaches and cutting-edge therapies to treat addiction and related issues.
Sober Living by the Sea is widely recognized as a pioneer in long-term addiction treatment. In 1986, when Sober Living by the Sea was founded, extended care to treat addiction in a residential setting wasn’t on most addiction specialists’ radars. Recognizing that 30 days of addiction treatment rarely built a sufficient foundation for lasting recovery, the founders created Sober Living by the Sea’s extended care program.
“Addiction isn’t a disease that can be treated short-term and suddenly cured,” said Ryan Franke, Director of Business Development at Sober Living by the Sea. “Our facilities treat addiction as well as what’s happening underneath it – and that takes time.”
Sober Living by the Sea was also behind a number of other “firsts” in the field of addiction treatment:
- It was the first addiction treatment center to offer a college track, which allows patients to attend college at a university while working on recovery.
- Sober Living by the Sea was the first addiction treatment center to offer a Celebrate Recovery Christian-based drug treatment track for individuals working a recovery program.
While holding true to its original vision and mission, Sober Living by the Sea has made a series of advancements in the past 25 years. In order to provide the full continuum of care to a wide range of patients, Sober Living by the Sea has diversified its services to include a number of specialty programs, including a transitional work program and family program, and four primary care programs:
- The Rose – A 30-day addiction treatment program for women located on the sand in Newport Beach that specializes in trauma, substance abuse and women’s issues
- The Victorian – An addiction and eating disorder treatment center for women located in a charming Victorian-style home in Newport Beach, California
- The Landing – A 30-day private alcohol and drug rehab center for men located on the sand in Newport Beach that specializes in addiction and men’s issues
- Sunrise Recovery Ranch – A Southern California drug rehab center for men located on a nine-acre ranch in the foothills
“With a wide range of treatment options of varying length and intensity, individuals are able to begin their recovery here, stay for over a year, and have new and innovative treatment provided every day,” said Franke.
Because patients can work through every stage of recovery – including detox, primary care, extended care and outpatient treatment – in one place, they receive seamless clinical care. The treatment teams at Sober Living by the Sea work together to ensure a smooth transition through each level of care. This standard of clinical excellence has earned a number of Sober Living by the Sea’s programs accreditation by CARF, an independent, nonprofit organization with rigorous quality and service standards.
“Through the years, we have made the treatment experience much more individualized to meet the unique needs of the men and women coming through our doors,” said Franke. “Whatever age, gender or drug of abuse, we have a program designed to produce lasting change.”
Set in some of the most desirable areas of Southern California, with many facilities located right on the sand in Newport Beach, Sober Living by the Sea focuses on the work as well as the rewards of recovery. Newport Beach is a setting where patients can practice staying sober in a real-world environment while leaning on the support of Sober Living by the Sea and a thriving recovery community. By the time patients leave, they have worked through the core issues underlying their addiction and know how to navigate the world in sobriety.
“Some people feel that the day they walk into treatment is the day their lives are over,” said Franke. “We want people to know that they can be comfortable and have fun in sobriety, and that recovery marks the beginning of a new and improved life.”
