“The stigma surrounding help-seeking for mental health problems hinders people from getting support. This stigma is even greater for those struggling with addiction….Providing quality, compassionate, and nonjudgmental care is key to revolutionizing the recovery experience for those who need treatment.” Marlon Rollins is a seasoned professional with more than 15 years of experience in behavioral healthcare, including operational management across clinical and non-clinical departments. He holds a Ph.D. in Educational Psychology, as well as an M.A. in Counseling Psychology, and is a licensed mental health counselor and national certified counselor. Prior to joining Laguna Treatment Hospital, Rollins served as interim CEO and COO at a 148-bed hospital in the Bay Area and at a 171-bed facility in Sacramento, California, providing leadership and overseeing operations of the two largest free-standing psychiatric facilities in the state of California. Before his work in California, Rollins held a leadership role at a large integrated healthcare system in the state of Indiana where he testified before legislators on expanding crisis and addiction services. Rollins is passionate about reducing the stigma of mental illness and addiction and shares his knowledge and personal experience—including the loss of his sister, a registered nurse, to suicide—on various media platforms. Rollins is a member of the Steering Committee for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (1-800-273-TALK) and the California Hospital Association and a winner of the Center of Leadership Development’s Human Achievement Award.

As Orange County's first chemical dependency recovery hospital (CDRH), Laguna Treatment Hospital provides research-based clinical and support services for adults suffering with drug and/or alcohol addiction and for those with co-occurring mental health disorders. 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 specializes in medically monitored withdrawal management (detox) as well as inpatient rehabilitation. The hospital is also known for its therapeutic setting, ideal for helping patients get on the path to recovery. 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 the individual’s underlying medical conditions, co-occurring mental health 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 Treatment Hospital strives to provide a therapeutic and restful environment for patients as they move through our continuum of care. Nursing stations are located on each residential floor and staffed 24/7. Our compassionate nurses continuously monitor patients throughout their stay, so patients and their families can feel at ease during the course of treatment. To promote wellness and recovery, Laguna features everything from a pool and fitness center to hotel style rooms with large beds and upgraded linens. Our group rooms promote discussion and discovery, while private space and quiet time are set aside for meditation and self-reflection. Leaving an inpatient rehab and entering a new life in recovery can feel scary, which is why Laguna’s caring therapists and case managers will be with you every step of the way. From enrolling you in an outpatient program that fits your unique needs to helping you transition into sober living housing, we help you prepare for the unstructured environment that awaits you outside Laguna Treatment Hospital. Staying connected to Laguna’s alumni network will help keep you motivated and engaged during your recovery. Weekly meetings and a full schedule of other events will ensure continued support and a network of like-minded people who can help keep you on track well after you leave our facility in Southern California.
Laguna Treatment Hospital Reviews and Ratings Details
The following is based on a combination of Surveys of Alumni, Staff, Loved Ones, and Reviews and Ratings from around the web.
Reviews at a Glance
- Aftercare Support
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.
- Individualized Treatment
Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients 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.
- Family Program
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.
- 12-Step Involvement
The term “12-Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps. The first 3 steps are situational, the next 4 address the practical issues created by the addiction, and the next 2 steps focus 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.
