Housed in a beautiful beachside home in magnificent Newport Beach, California, The Landing is an innovative residential treatment program for adult men who have been struggling with substance abuse, addiction, and certain co-occurring mental health disorders. Treatment at The Landing is a dynamic holistic experience that incorporates highly effective elements of eastern healing and western medicine. With a client-focused philosophy that acknowledges and embraces the unique strengths, experiences, and needs that each person brings to the treatment process, The Landing is uniquely prepared to provide the life-changing care that will empower men to overcome their chemical dependence and make the other changes that will support their successful pursuit of happier and healthier futures, free from the constraints of addiction.
When a man chooses to enroll at The Landing, he joins a vibrant community that is dedicated to providing comprehensive care in a manner that is personalized to meet his specific needs, and he will benefit from a three-phase treatment approach that focuses on his physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing. Our continuum of care has been specifically designed to guide men out of the depths of addiction and into the promise of a healthy drug-free tomorrow.
At The Landing, clients work in close collaboration with dedicated and experienced professionals, including a board-certified psychiatrist, licensed therapist, certified substance abuse counselors, marriage and family therapist interns, nurses, and clinical technicians. From the day a man enters our program, he is expected to play an active role in his own recovery, starting with identifying his specific treatment objectives and participating in the development of his personalized treatment plan.
Treatment modalities employed at The Landing include person-centered therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), emotionally-focused therapy (EFT) and trauma-focused therapy. Depending upon an individual’s specific needs and goals, his treatment experience with us may occur in the following phases:
The first step on the path of addiction recovery is ridding one’s body of the substances that an individual has been abusing. Depending upon the type or types of drugs that a person has been abusing, and the nature and severity of that abuse, cessation of use may be accompanied by a variety of painful and possibly dangerous symptoms. When individuals attempt to withdraw without professional help, the distressing nature of the experience often pushes them back into substance abuse and makes them less likely to attempt to quit again in the future
When a person has been unable to stop his substance abuse prior to entering treatment at The Landing, we are able to provide a medically monitored environment in which he can withdraw from his substance or substances of abuse in a safe and relatively comfortable manner. Under the close supervision of qualified professionals, the man can rid his body of dangerous drugs and prepare himself to fully engage in the comprehensive treatment that is provided in Phase I. When detox is complete, the client can transition directly into residential rehabilitation.
Phase I: Residential Rehabilitation
Residential rehab at The Landing is an intensive experience that is designed to help men establish a firm foundation upon which to build a new life without alcohol or other drugs. The specific nature of each client’s experience in Phase II will depend upon several personal factors, including his prior substance abuse, the presence or absence of a co-occurring disorder, his unique strengths and needs, and the treatment goals that he has set for himself. However, there are certain common experiences that are shared by all who heal at The Landing. For example, each client’s treatment will involve multiple individual counseling sessions each week, and several group therapy sessions every day. All clients also take part in a variety of experiential therapies and have ample time for recreation.
If a client desires to involve family members in the treatment process, he may do so via both family therapy sessions and our weekly Family Program. Family therapy sessions at The Landing are scheduled on an as-needed basis, and are led by marriage and family therapist interns. The Family Program is a three-day event that is conducted each month, with the goal of teaching family members how to care for themselves during the recovery process as well as how to provide the most effective support to their loved ones.
As a client progresses through his personalized treatment plan and becomes more secure in his early recovery, he will transition into Phase II.
Phase II: Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
As a client begins to gain a solid foothold in his early recovery, he will transition to Phase II, which is our partial hospitalization (PHP) level of care. During this phase, he will focus on enhancing the new skills and concepts that he learned during Phase I. For example, after being introduced to the principles and practices of the 12-step recovery model, he will begin to progress through the early steps while deepening his understanding of the overall philosophy. Also, while the individual and group therapy sessions during Phase I will have provided him with new perspectives for looking at the world, new ways of processing his struggles and successes, and new techniques for engaging in healthy interpersonal communication, these same events during Phase II will provide him with the opportunity to put these methods into practice.
Phase III: Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
The final phase of treatment at The Landing is designed to help solidify the progress that the client has made thus far, and to reinforce the lessons that he has learned throughout his time in treatment. One of the many benefits of our seamless three-phase treatment approach is that there is no gap in care from Phase I through Phase II and into Phase III, and the client is able to work with the same professionals throughout his time at The Landing.
Clients in Phase III will continue to participate in individual, group, and experiential therapies. Depending upon the nature of their relationships with their family members, Phase III clients may also participate in family therapy sessions and/or the monthly Family Program. Though clients are expected to take active responsibility for their recovery throughout their time in treatment, this concept is emphasized during Phase III as they prepare to complete their stay at The Landing and return to their homes and communities.
From detox through Phase III, the primary objectives of treatment at The Landing remain consistent: to meet men where they are in their struggles and to prepare them to make meaningful and lasting progress in their recovery.
