Beachside Recovery, located near the ocean of Newport Beach, Calif., offers medically-managed detoxification, residential, and outpatient-based treatment programs for adults dealing with substance misuse and co-occurring mental health issues.


Customized addiction recovery programs are created for each client following an initial assessment. Treatment begins with clinically managed detoxification, if needed. A personal care manager oversees each client’s progress through treatment, which includes a combination of evidence-based practices and 12-step programming.

Though the length of treatment for residential clients varies according to each client's specific needs, Beachside's website notes that most individuals need at least 90 days in treatment to end their substance misuse and that longer lasting programs yield more successful outcomes
