Treatment Insights

Ocean Recovery is not a traditional inpatient rehab. Instead, the facility offers an extended care program that’s focused on helping each individual prevent relapse and reshape his or her lifestyle to accommodate sobriety. Clients learn how to manage daily living within the safe structure of a treatment facility, and can practice these tools and techniques gradually and with sober support. A staff of highly-trained individuals stay up to date on the most effective addiction treatments and work with each client to create a unique treatment plan based on his or her specific needs.

Areas of Focus
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.


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.
