Substance use disorder among young adults has reached unprecedented rates. To address this problem, young adult substance abuse treatment programs need to mitigate the rate of relapse by offering services that resonate with the needs and circumstances of young adults. Particularly, young adults require a different approach than do older adults, as many view addiction treatment as a form of punishment rather than a beneficial life choice. Many times this underlying resentment can hinder the ability of young adults to integrate valuable recovery tools into their lives, as they sometimes see these teachings as an encroachment on their freedom. Hotel California by the Sea’s Young Adult Treatment Program utilizes a customized treatment model that instills in young adults the idea that a life of recovery is a better way of life rather than a form of discipline.
Hotel California by the Sea’s Young Adult and gender specific rehab treatment program utilizes a customized treatment model for young adult men and women that caters to the individual needs of each of our young adult clients. Our team of experienced, caring and passionate treatment professionals strive to provide the therapeutic support, emotional tools and recovery skills needed to achieve and sustain long-term sobriety, recovery and positive life change.
Many young adult men and women suffering from addiction also suffer from delayed emotional development, trouble with relationships and commitments, and problems fully understanding the impact their addictions have had on their lives as well as on others in their lives. Our multidimensional, customized and gender-specific approach to treating male and female young adults treats substance use disorders concurrent with co-occurring conditions and underlying issues including but not limited to bipolar, depression, PTSD, anxiety and work-related stress. When a patient leaves our young adults program they are not only sober, but also prepared to be productive members of society.
Young Adult Rehab
Male and female young adults at Hotel California by the Sea are part of a unique substance abuse treatment program that is structured to facilitate the recovery process.
Recovery from drugs and alcohol addiction requires perseverance, commitment to personal recovery and being a part of a recovery community. Together, these components help strengthen a young adult’s ability to stay sober.
Therapies used in our young adult addiction treatment programs
Young adults have unique therapeutic needs. Hotel California by the Sea’s young adult addiction counseling program in California addresses those needs through individual, group and family therapy.
Comprehensive studies have shown that the brain is not fully mature until the age of 25. This is especially true of the part of the brain that controls impulses or helps individuals map out their lives – such as determining what they are going to “be” in life. Many teens and young adults may have disruptions in the natural maturity process of the brain, otherwise known as “arrested development,” beginning at the age that they started abusing substances. Therapeutic interventions through counseling are an essential component of therapy for young adults recovering from addiction and getting back on track developmentally.
Our young adult therapies facilitate this process through opportunities for healing in individual, group and family settings in the care of highly credentialed professionals employing evidence-based therapies that work. Because addiction complicates the already complex questions and choices young adults make, our dedicated professionals help facilitate this process and guide patients toward clarity over questions they have about their identity, values, interests, boundaries and where they generally fit in the world, among friends, in school and the workplace and in their families. Through the following young adult therapies, we help patients grasp values where there once was confusion, gain confidence where there was insecurity and have direction where there once was deviation.

Young Adult Individual Therapy
Individual therapy sessions provide a safe space where young adults can confidentially speak one-on-one with their therapist about issues they may not wish to share in a group setting. Our young adult addiction treatment program offers one individual therapy session per week. If deemed medically necessary, a client may also see an EMDR therapist once per week.
Young Adult Group Therapy
Healing among others help our young adults come out of isolation and move into the comfort of shared experiences. It is through groups that our young adult female clients and young adult male clients learn to grapple with their problems out in the open and develop self-understanding in a peer supported setting. Common shared experiences include issues concerning relationships, self-esteem, work/school, identity, anger and depression. The group can function as a sounding board for which clients receive and impart helpful coping skills while developing tools for communication with friends and family members and exploring strategies for improving social skills and relationships.
Young Adult Family Therapy
Many patients enter our young adult addiction therapy program with deficits in their family relationships that need to be worked on. Both the young adult male, the young adult female and the family members benefit greatly from receiving therapeutic support and guidance from our clinicians. Our clinicians understand how addiction impacts the entire family and are trained in facilitating family members to restore and repair what is broken. During the first week of every month, family members are invited to a 3-day intensive family therapy program to become educated on the disease of addiction and to work through and change unhealthy personal and family dynamics and behaviors caused by addiction.
