1. Administrative staff are not accredited medical professionals (PhD, MD, PsyD), nor listed publicly. This is a family-owned/operated business, not run by the licensed professionals working there.
2. At least one hour every day is spent riding in van-pool style transportation between campus and residential housing. (common practice in So-Cal)
3. The name Hope by the Sea is misleading. Yes, the ocean is a 45 minute walk from the front door; however, clients are not permitted to leave the two acre campus and cannot visit the beach at will.
