Getting The Help You Need:
For Your Loved One
For Your Patient
Welcome to the Premier Addiction Treatment Center
We provide treatment to men and women. Many who have battled addiction have eventually spiraled into the tunnel of hopelessness and helplessness without a way out. At Coastline, we know first-hand and have experienced the tragedy and horror accompanying addiction either in our own lives or have witnessed a loved one suffer. Yet, we also know and live the light at the end which has sparked the will not only to live but to thrive. As we ourselves have gone through this journey directly or vicariously, we relate and empathize with every individual walking through our door seeking help.
First and foremost, we believe a treatment program needs to demonstrate and model structure, closeness, and consistency. If employees model these values, then we end up modeling this for clients in turn not only become consistent themselves but end up modeling this for their peers. And overall, peers start holding each other accountable which in the short and long term furthers their own recovery.
Our view on addiction/alcoholism and resulting recovery is based on the disease model. This disease model takes into account the genetic predisposition to addiction. Our treatment model biopsychosocial. Meaning, the biology of the individual is influenced by their psychological as well as environmental factors.

What Makes Coastline Unique
We address environmental factors by having the individual stay in a safe recovery-based environment. We encourage interaction with others in sobriety via 12 step AA meetings and sponsorship. We also organize activities for our clients outside the treatment walls in Sunny California to demonstrate the ways one can immerse in society and have fun without the use of drugs and alcohol. We guide and monitor connection with the outside world only the extent of maintaining safety and reducing the potential of clients being exposed to high-risk situations.
Regarding psychological factors impacting addition, we believe it’s necessary to address underlying psychological factors that have consciously and unconsciously maintained addiction or caused several relapses. Though there are general underlying issues that are common to people in general, such as, some sort of mood dysfunction for example, the type, intensity, and manifestation of psychological factors varies from individual to individual. We take care in maintaining an attitude of curiosity and interest in understanding one’s unique story.
Though we usually hear stories riddled with tragedy, trauma, shame, fear, guilt and inadequacies; we listen carefully and look for the survival skills and the strength embedded in the pain and the self-destructive behavior. We pride ourselves on being a strength based program. Though we don’t disregard the client’s story, we also don’t dwell on the content. In addition to listening for underlying patterns, we desire encouraging stories about the ways the clients have coped so far. We applaud the resilience they have shown thus far in surviving and choosing to seek help instead of continuing on the self-sabotaged path they have been on.
What To Expect Upon Admission To Our Addiction Treatment Center
All of our clients upon admission, meet with our psychiatric nurse on site. A thorough psychiatric evaluation is conducted. Though medication is not pushed on any client, they are carefully evaluated for medication if necessary. If a particular medication is warranted, the pros and cons are carefully explained. Clients also undergo follow-up appointments assessing the efficacy of the medication with symptom relief. If a client struggles with side effects of a medication they are taking or if they suffer from any other physical complaints, we ensure, to immediately have them meet with our medical personnel.
Our clients’ physical and emotional well-being is of primary importance. Especially during early recovery, when clients are withdrawing from drugs and alcohol from years of using, in addition to withdrawal symptoms, they also have to deal with physical conditions that develop from lack of self-care and personal neglect. If untreated, the great discomfort from physical conditions and withdrawals can become the basis of increasing cravings and trigger the client to use drugs in order to alleviate physical pain. Therefore, all clients are close monitored medically and made comfortable as soon as they arrive.
Our treatment modality includes the following:
What is Detox and Why is it Important?
Many people are seeking treatment initially they will go through a period of detox. This is the first step in recovery. Chemical dependence causes changes in the brain and detox is the removal of harmful substances from the body. During detox one experiences intense uncomfortable physical and emotional symptoms. Some of these symptoms include chills, body ache, blurred vision, tactile disturbances, irritability, nausea, anger, headache, stomach discomfort, depression, sadness, anxiety to name a few. The severity of the detox depends on the type of substance used, the length of use,
Many people are seeking treatment initially they will go through a period of detox. This is the first step in recovery.

Some of these symptoms include chills, body ache, blurred vision, tactile disturbances, irritability, nausea, anger, headache, stomach discomfort, depression, sadness, anxiety to name a few.
The severity of the detox depends on the type of substance used, the length of use, the frequency of use and the dosage of use. Typically, people detox from alcohol, opioids like heroin and painkillers and benzodiazepines such as Xanax to name a few. Typically, it takes a week to a month to fully detox from substances. Our experience has typically seen a week to 10 days of detox symptoms before a client starts to feel better and they start seeing physical and emotional improvements. Once, they start to feel better physically and mentally, only then are they able and willing to participate in our day to day programming. Many recount the severity of their detox and express relief once their withdrawal symptoms are remitted.
We treat a wide variety of substances including but not limited to:
- Club Drugs
- Prescription Medication
After many clients have detoxed from their primary narcotic of choice or alcohol, our treatment also focuses on Identifying and providing psycho-education on Post-Acute Withdrawal Syndrome (PAWS).
“Play is a profound biological process… In higher animals, it fosters empathy and makes possible complex social groups. For us, play ties at the core of creativity and innovation… Humans are the biggest players of all. We are built to play and built through play. When we play, we are engaged in the purest expression of our humanity, the truest expression of our individuality… It’s not Just an absence of games or sports. Life without play a life without book, without, movies, art, music, jokes, dramatic stories “
Stuart Brown, M.D.
The primary focus of our treatment is the Experiential Component. As Mr. Brown so eloquently states, a life without play is a mundane dreary life. Therefore, the focus with every individual is to reignite the sense of play, curiosity, and wonder that got lost in the throes of addiction and/or alcoholism. We believe when one feels defeated and powerless, they need to nurtured back to life. Sometimes taking an empathetic yet ‘playful’ approach adds a needed lightheadedness which counters feelings of shame, guilt, fear, loneliness individuals are already feeling walking through our door.
This ‘playful’ treatment approach is the foundational piece of our treatment modality. We call it our Experiential Program. Usually, the word “play” conjures up memories of childish games and activities. Though these associations are part of the word “play”, at Coastline we are primarily referring to “Purposeful Play”. It’s the kind of “play” that creates meaning, enhances teamwork and instills ideas of honesty, accountability, problem-solving. This sense of play includes physical team building activities as well.
The purpose of play also decreases rage and conflict, de-escalating high-stress situations as people are working towards a common objective goal independent of themselves. Therefore, when people get enough of a distance from their intense emotions and obsessive thoughts, they are more likely to calm down and revisit the situation that triggered them with solutions as well as a more objective perspective. This kind of play also assists with re-creating and imprinting a sense of positive playfulness especially if one’s childhood was traumatic and abusive.
Psychoeducation on the disease model of addiction, specific mood disorders, as well as common underlying issues such as process addictions that people face, assist in providing a cognitive framework to their experience in the purposeful play.
12 Step Programs for Recovery
We emphasize the 12 step program as a positive social tool to further assist in recovery. We additionally believe that addiction is a “spiritual malady”. We do not push any dogma or entertain any religious agenda. Yet we do believe and follow the tenets of the 12 steps which states, that a connection with something greater than oneself is helpful in positively impacting one’s sobriety. Additionally, the psycho-education and experiential programs we offer tie into the 3 basic principles of Alcoholics Anonymous of
- Being of Service.
In additional to focus on attending meetings, obtaining a sponsor, working the 12 steps, we also use all three principles and create ‘Unity’ via team building activities, ‘Recovery’ via psychoeducation and ‘Being of Service’ by having clients volunteer their time to the needy as a way of giving back to the community.
Dual Diagnosis Treatment At Coastline
Though our primary focus on substance abuse, we also deal with co-occurring disorders. We believe a dual diagnosis occurs concurrently with the primary substance and/or alcohol dependence. Though we do not like to provide concrete labels to clients as an individual is larger than his or her addiction and mental health diagnosis. Yet, a preliminary diagnosis is helpful to us in contextualizing one’s underlying dysfunctional patterns and understanding one’s story as it pertains to their addiction.
We consider mental health diagnosis as essentially, necessary ‘coping skills’ developed in order to deal with past abuse, trauma, and tragedy. At Coastline, our clients are not a diagnosis, but people dealing with a malady that we seek to understand, explore and channel into more positive activities. We provide treatment for the following mental health diagnosis:
- Anxiety and related disorders
- Bipolar and related Disorders
- Trauma and Stress-Related Disorder
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
- Impulse Control and Disruptive Disorders
We do not address Acute psychosis and related disorders that warrant inpatient intensive psychiatric care. If someone admits and after being assessed, if they do not meet our standard of care which is within our scope of competence, we then transfer them to a higher level of care and pending consent we also inform their families. Our transfers are made door to door with warmth and compassion.
What Is Cross Addiction?
Typically, when a client is abstinent from alcohol or their drug of choice, they cross addict to something else. Cross addiction is an engagement in an activity that mimics the highs and lows one experienced when they were primarily using drugs or alcohol dependent where their quality of life is severely negatively impacted. Therefore, cross-addiction is a substitution of alcohol or drugs to a variety of other areas that is equally harmful. The common areas of cross addiction are shopping, gambling, sex, work, exercise to name a few. Though working and exercising, for example, appear positive, when cross-addicting to these areas, people neglect other positive areas of life such as friends, family, their recovery program, and self-care.
If untreated, clients usually, end up going back to abusing their original drug of choice. Identifying, labeling and drawing parallels between the specific cross addition with their drug of choice becomes necessary. Clients are also gradually provided with specific skills to recognize their cross addiction that furthers their recovery.
Sober Living in Orange County, CA
A lot of effort has been put into placing clients into aesthetically pleasing sober livings in safe family oriented neighborhoods in southern California. All of the sober living homes are a few miles away from the beach. The sober living houses are well furnished. The primary features are granite counter tops, laminate flooring, recessed lighting and newer carpets in the bedroom. A full laundry room and bathrooms.
Each sober living home houses a maximum of 10 clients ensuring ample space. The houses are additionally equipped with flat screen television sets and Wi-Fi. Grocery stores, AA meetings are a short distance away from the sober living homes. There is also easy access to pools either in the community or installed in the homes. We believe reintegration of our clients into such warm drug-free environments gives them something positive to look forward to achieving for themselves.
