A Joint Commission Accredited Treatment Center, Laguna Treatment Hospital’s continuum of our care is clinically suited for clients who require higher levels of monitoring, supervision, and the schedule of a more structured program.
Areas of Specialization
The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.
Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain 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.
Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.

ABOUT LAGUNA TREATMENT HOSPITAL
Owned and operated by American Addiction Centers (AAC) and set in sunny Southern California, Laguna Treatment Hospital offers residential treatment for adults with addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders. Medically-monitored detox services are available on-site. Aftercare planning services are also available.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Treatment at Laguna Treatment Hospital begins with a comprehensive psychiatric and medical evaluation to determine the appropriate level of care and create an individualized treatment plan. Each client’s length of stay varies depending upon each client’s unique needs, but a 90-day stay is often recommended as the most effective for attaining long-term sobriety.
Treatment combines 12-step methodology with evidence-based practices, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), rational emotive behavior therapy (REBT), and motivational interviewing (MI). Clients participate in individual therapy, group and family counseling, wellness focused groups, and Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA) meetings, as well as relapse prevention and skill-building groups.
Laguna Treatment Hospital also utilizes American Addiction Center’s (AAC’s) unique recovery curriculum, Change: Recovery for Life, which focuses on the treatment of co-occurring addiction and mental health disorders. The course includes a series of workbook exercises and interactive activities designed to encourage self-examination, teach effective recovery and aftercare coping strategies, and highlight the benefits of 12-step principles and fellowship.
Loved ones are encouraged to become active in the treatment process by participating in periodic family therapy sessions. This includes spouses, partners, children, and other family members.
When treatment is complete, individuals leave with a comprehensive aftercare plan put together by both themselves and the staff. Should they relapse, clients who successfully complete the 90-day program may return for an additional 30 days, free of charge.
The treatment team includes physicians, psychiatrists, nurses, psychologists, social workers, and therapists.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Clients live in comfortable, home-like quarters and can choose from single or double-occupancy rooms. Amenities include housekeeping services and cozy living areas where clients can watch TV, read, and socialize. The campus, which is nestled in the San Joaquin Hills of Aliso Viejo, offers clients a scenic, serene, and peaceful environment for recovery.
