What Makes Us Different

Our founder, Carl Mosen, and his team bring 30 plus years of expertise, knowledge and experience to the addiction treatment industry. Starting in 1986, Carl owned and operated one of the first residential treatment programs in Newport Beach, CA. and has set the foundation and standard for quality and ethical addiction treatment. At Hotel California by the Sea we provide individualized treatment plans that are tailored to the unique needs of each of our clients. We offer specialty residential programs including a mature men’s professionals program for men over the age of 30, a women’s program that focuses heavily on treating co-occurring disorders, such as trauma, concurrent with addiction and a young adults program that focuses on personal recovery as well as personal and professional growth. Across all three states in which our programs are located (California, Washington and Ohio) our staff to client ratio is one of the highest and at least 80% of our staff are in recovery themselves and are passionate about the work they do on a daily basis. In addition to a client’s individual clinical team with whom they meet with once per week each (a Licensed Therapist and a Certified Drug and Alcohol Counselor/Case Manager), we also provide our clients with a team of recovery coaches and client advocates to add an extra layer of recovery support.

At Hotel California by the Sea Cincinnati we treat the entire person, which includes their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health and wellness. We utilize the best practices in addiction medicine and psychiatry and utilize a variety of therapeutic modalities including EMDR therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), aromatherapy, art therapy and music therapy. We also employ a multitude of holistic and mindfulness based practices to support the wellness of the whole person, all to support our underlying mission, which is to provide men, women and young adults with a new way of life free from the grips of their addiction(s).
