Beachside Recovery Philosophy
Choosing the right addiction recovery program can often times feel overwhelming. Beachside Recovery Center knows that addiction and substance abuse affects each individual in a different manner. Based on the severity of their addiction and substance abuse history, we customize addiction treatment plans for each of our clients. When it comes to addiction recovery, it is imperative that we help you find the best fit for your situation, in order to create the potential for full and lasting recovery.
Areas of Specialization
Though not all rehab facilities offer “medical detoxification,” all people with an addiction to drugs or alcohol will experience intense physical and emotional changes and discomfort as their bodies react to withdrawal of the addictive substance. Many people use the term “detox” to refer to the period of time (ranging from a few days to a week) when the body is reacting to an addict’s decision to stop using.
Dual Diagnosis/Co-occurring Disorders Treatment
These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.
Client & Family Support Groups
Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.
Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.

ABOUT BEACHSIDE RECOVERY
Situated in the beach community of Newport Beach, Calif., the luxury, oceanfront Beachside Recovery rehabilitation center provides medically managed detox, residential and outpatient treatment programs for adults faced with addictive and co-occurring mental health issues. Promoting long-term changes, programs here emphasize the 12-steps, off-site activities, and community involvement.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Clients begin with an initial assessment to determine a specific recovery plan, and a personal care manager oversees each client’s progress throughout treatment. Programs combine evidence-based treatments, cutting-edge methods, and a variety of therapeutic and recreational activities to promote long-term sobriety. Along with an introduction to 12-step principles, clients participate in individual, group, and family counseling sessions.
Beachside Recovery offers Nexalin treatment sessions, a cutting-edge therapy that targets key brain structures to influence neurochemistry. A comfortable, soothing process, these 40-minute Nexalin sessions have been shown to normalize the production of important neurotransmitters linked to addiction and mental health issues, including depression, anxiety, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and obsessive-compulsive disorder. Medication-assisted therapy, such as a Vivitrol, is also on offer.
Along with evidence-based and innovative treatments, the center emphasizes on- and off-site activities, such as seaside yoga, guided meditation, art therapy, nature walks, and beach trips, to promote physical and mental health. When appropriate, clients are also encouraged to pursue volunteer, school, and work opportunities.
Focused primarily on helping clients maintain their sobriety while holding down life commitments, outpatient programming, available at two different levels, may serve graduates stepping down from residential treatment.
Along with personal case managers, Beachside Recovery staffs a team of trained physicians, counselors, and recreational therapists, many of whom are also in recovery.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Featuring high-end furnishings, spacious shared bedrooms, and a full kitchen, the luxury, off-site home in Dana Point provides residents with a therapeutic, home-like environment while in treatment.
Transportation to and from treatment sessions and community activities are provided, and personal chefs prepare three meals daily. Clients also have access to 24-hour fitness centers.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
Alumni feedback was heavily mixed; of the 25 former clients to have shared their first-hand experiences with Rehabs.com as of this writing, 17 reported positive outcomes, though the remaining eight cumulatively painted an entirely different perspective.
On the positive end, alumni focused on the staff, whom A.S. called “nice and caring” as well as the “upscale and comfortable” houses. “The amenities are insane, one of the houses actually has a movie theater inside of it. Excellent place to get sober,” A.S. wrote.
Despite positive feedback, others called the facility a “joke,” told of “being accused for referring people abroad,” medical services that were “a disaster,” and “among the shadier dirt business working in the drug rehab world.”
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
Offering similarly mixed feedback, several of the seven loved ones (and clients alike) surveyed by Rehabs.com to date warned prospective clients and their families to “stay away” from this facility. As J.R., whose loved one attended treatment here, explained: “They constantly treated her as if she did not matter… I would definitely avoid this place.”
Yet others, such as Miranda and K.E., thanked the “awesome rehab” for helping their family members achieve and maintain sobriety. “Thank you Beachside Recovery Center for helping my brother get sober,” another J.R. wrote in a representative statement.
WHAT STAFF SAY
Having left Beachside after a two-month stint, R.G., a staff member, reported to Rehabs.com an all-too-familiar warning: “STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE!! AND THE CLIENTS ARE NEVER HAPPY BECAUSE THE FEEL DECEIVED! DO YOUR HOMEWORK! THIS PLACE IS BAD NEWS. I'VE SEEN IT ALL. DONT GO HERE!”
Beachside Recovery accepts most major insurance providers but does not offer financial assistance.
