In a calm and serene area, there is a rehabilitation facility that stands out among all the rest: Oceanfront Recovery (‘Oceanfront’). Clients spend their time healing and focusing on their recovery in one of the most rejuvenating spaces: the coastline of Laguna Beach, California. However, this is not the only thing unique or noteworthy about Oceanfront. From the range of high-quality programs they offer to their dedicated and clinically sophisticated staff, Oceanfront is a gem just waiting to be discovered.
This facility has a primary focus on acute levels of care concerning addiction, substance abuse, and mental health. The first step is usually to its stand alone Drug and Alcohol Detox Center. There is a dynamic clinical program for both men and women, accounting for issues that may affect men and women differently. Program capacity is kept small: their residential treatment program may have up to 12 clients at a given time, while their outpatient programs may have up to 12-15 clients in attendance.
Although Oceanfront’s team focuses on the most urgent health concerns, they also allocate considerable time and energy to aftercare planning. The team knows this step is critical, ensuring the client has the tools to avoid relapse and be successful in their recovery. Clients have the option of entering an aftercare and/or sober living program. For some, the transition from full-treatment to independent living may be too soon; they may need additional support in building their confidence in practicing the skills learned in recovery. There is no shame in taking small steps; progress is progress. Everyone moves at their own pace and Oceanfront’s team respects and facilitates this. Through the aftercare and sober living programs, clinicians can help their clients identify community resources, like 12-Step meetings, support groups, and therapists, that clients can attend after treatment.
Oceanfront has three therapists with extensive professional experience. Between the three of them, they have about 30 years of combined clinical experience working with clients suffering from mental health conditions and addiction. They are all Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists (LMFT), which requires at least a master’s degree in the field in addition to a period of supervised clinical practice. According to the Association for Marriage and Family Therapy, a therapist seeking this licensure must complete 1,500 hours of supervised experience, as well as 1,380 hours of client contact. To renew the license, the clinician must complete a continuing education program every two years.
Oceanfront’s professional team is onsite and works there full-time, allowing them to be accessible to their clients. This accessibility and the dedication that comes with it is important to foster the development of a meaningful client-patient relationship. According to the team, forming a deep and real connection with people who need it the most is essential to their responsibilities as a therapist. Furthermore, the clinicians tend to be flexible in their approach to treatment. They recognize that their clients come from diverse backgrounds, and they value this diversity. The team realizes that a one-size-fits-all approach can limit a patient’s recovery or be ineffective.
Each team member at Oceanfront brings something a little different to the table, especially when it comes to what they’ve learned through their personal experiences. Their life experiences assist them in understanding what their client is going through, which can help a client feel more comfortable. This shared understanding can help the client open up and reveal underlying issues that may be central to treatment.
The most unique but nuanced feature about Oceanfront is their work culture. Work culture is the way that team members within an organization interact with each other. It encompasses the beliefs and attitudes that members have about one another and the organization at large. The work culture is set by management and influenced by the ideologies and principles of the organization.
Culture is a concept that should not be overlooked, as a healthy work culture can result in thriving relationships between colleagues. These relationships lead to trust, increased work productivity, and, critically, higher quality care for clients. This is what the culture is like at Oceanfront. Their staff size and patient load is small but intentionally so. The facility recently decided to downscale operations because management realized the strength that comes with being smaller. Their group of therapists is tightly knit and has learned how to work well with each other. They know each other not just as colleagues but as human beings. This supportive professional environment directly extends to their clients and manifests as deep, quality care.
