The hospital has the expertise to care for most patients, including those who are medically compromised and require 24/7 medical care through its unique medical model for addiction treatment. With a staff of more than 70 addiction professionals, registered nurses, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists, and a recreational therapist. Laguna Treatment Hospital provides all levels of care from medical detox to intensive outpatient treatment.

Addiction is a complex physiological disease, and no two patients are exactly alike. At Laguna Treatment Hospital, we create an individually tailored treatment plan for each patient based upon factors such as underlying medical conditions, co-occurring behavioral disorders, history of trauma, and other factors. During your stay at Laguna Treatment Hospital, you’ll participate in a variety of evidence-based therapies in both individual and group settings. Our therapists utilize methods that are clinically proven to help people who suffer from addiction learn to resist substance use and choose sobriety. These evidence-based therapies include motivational interviewing (MI), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), alternative or holistic therapies such as yoga or meditation, and more. We also offer educational sessions to help prepare you for your life in recovery and solidify your commitment to sobriety.
Laguna also offers a wide range of amenities and activities that ensure your comfort and foster your recovery. From nutritious meals that help to restore your body’s strength to recreational activities that allow you to make healthy connections while participating in enjoyable activities that don’t involve substance use, Laguna Treatment Hospital’s features surpass what you might expect.
Laguna Treatment Hospital specializes in medically supervised detoxification and withdrawal management using medication-assisted treatment (MAT). Laguna is the first addiction treatment center in Orange County to be licensed as a chemical dependency recovery hospital.
Laguna Treatment Hospital’s hotel-like facility provides a calm, soothing environment for patients to focus on their prescribed treatment regimen. Residents receive individual and group therapy, attend doctor’s appointments and 12-step meetings, and participate in supplemental therapies such as yoga, music, art, and outdoor excursions. Daily schedules are well-structured and allow patients plenty of time to rest and recover physically, mentally, and emotionally.
Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
Following our intensive inpatient therapy, patients can choose to participate in our partial hospitalization program, or PHP. The purpose of this step is to move clients away from around-the-clock supervision and gain more real-life experience in the community.
Laguna Treatment Hospital’s outpatient PHP provides care 6 days a week for no less than 5 hours per day. PHP patients attend daily programming, structured group therapy, and weekly individual therapy sessions. They also have greater access to the community and outside support group meetings, while learning how to have fun in recovery through recreational activities and experiential therapies.
Prior to discharge, all Laguna Treatment Hospital patients work with their case managers to finalize the details of their travel, housing, outpatient schedule, prescriptions, and doctor’s appointments. Patients not participating in Laguna’s PHP therapy will be connected with another outpatient provider to continue their treatment. We will also assist you in finding transitional supportive housing. We will also connect you to our network of Laguna alumni.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): This evidence-based treatment method allows the therapist to collaborate with patients and encourage them to question and examine their thought patterns to eliminate or replace the unhealthy ones.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT): Laguna’s therapists use DBT to help patients overcome painful emotions and decrease conflict in their relationships through mindfulness, distress acceptance, emotional regulation, and interpersonal communication.
Motivational Interviewing: Our licensed therapists use motivational interviewing (MI) techniques to meet patients where they are and, if necessary, nudge them from ambivalence about treatment toward a genuine personal desire for changing harmful behaviors.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR): This technique used by therapists is helpful in reducing the impact of trauma and other stressful events on a person’s life and behaviors.
Family Support and Therapy: With the patient’s permission, Laguna Treatment Hospital can coordinate family therapy sessions in-person or via Skype. These sessions help to support, reinforce, and strengthen a patient’s recovery efforts.
Group Therapy: Laguna Treatment Hospital’s behavioral health technicians host a range of culturally sensitive groups specifically designed to best support clients of diverse backgrounds.
Alternative Therapies: Holistic healing methods such as yoga, mindfulness training, and meditation are a regular component of Laguna’s programming. Our staff is continuously working to bring new programs such as music and art therapy to the hospital as well.
