SolMar Recovery

World-class Residential Treatment Program in Southern California

Patients with ongoing medical needs and / or living arrangements that are not conducive to safe and sober support may meet our criteria for continued stay in Residential level of care. This level of care combines continuing medical and nursing care with treatment of the emotional, social, and spiritual aspects of the substance use disorder.

Set in a beautifully renovated building on Hoag’s Newport Beach campus, the 21-bed residential program – SolMar Recovery – is overseen by a multi-disciplinary clinical team, who will be on-hand at all hours of the day and night to ensure the highest level of evidence-based care for those struggling with substance use disorder and co-occurring mental health disorders.

This is the only program that is licensed as a residential treatment facility, feels and functions like a residential program, and is physically co-located with an acute care hospital. All of the safety, security, and quality of Orange County’s best hospital is available, in a place that feels like home.

SolMar Recovery’s residential services include:

  • Individual and group counseling and therapy
  • A multitude of complementary care including yoga, mind and body awareness, and art therapy.
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy
  • 12-step meetings
  • Equine therapy
  • Physician consultation
  • Licensed Therapists

Patient Safety Is Our Priority

At Hoag Addiction Treatment Centers, patient safety is our utmost concern. Many centers contract with local physicians to provide limited on-site consultation. At Hoag, we offer a higher standard of care. Our patients receive help from a dedicated team of physician specialists, clinicians, and nursing staff who are available on-site 24/7 to provide the highest level of safe, expert care.

The process of recovering from addiction to drugs, alcohol, and prescription drugs can involve serious or even life-threatening medical complications. That is why it is vitally important to continue to receive medically supervised care from a team of addiction medicine experts.

Multidisciplinary Teams Assigned to Each Individual

Each person is assigned his or her own personal treatment team, which includes a:

  • Physician
  • Clinical Nurse
  • Licensed Therapist
  • Counselors
  • Equine Therapist
  • Psychiatrist
  • Nurse Practitioner
  • Other specialists

This multidisciplinary team is responsible for assessing and working with each person to establish an individualized plan of care and post-treatment recommendations designed to support ongoing recovery. Hoag Addiction Treatment Centers Admissions Counseling staff will begin this personalized team approach prior to admission by discussing all levels of care available.

Incidental Medical Services (IMS)

As one of the few hospital-based alcohol and drug treatment programs in the area offering treatment across the full spectrum of care (detox, residential, PHP, and IOP), Hoag ensures that medical issues directly associated with detoxification, treatment, and recovery services are addressed for patients in residential treatment. Until 2016, such incidental medical services were not authorized to be provided in the residential setting. However, after passage of assembly bill 848, alcohol and drug treatment programs licensed by the Department of Healthcare Services were authorized to provide such services provided they meet appropriate standards and are certified by the state. Hoag’s SolMar Residential Treatment program meets such standards and is certified by the state to provide Incidental Medical Services (IMS).

IMS certification improves care by allowing Hoag medical providers to:

  • Obtain medical histories.
  • Monitor a patient’s health status to determine whether they need to be transferred to receive urgent or emergency care.
  • Perform testing associated with detoxification from alcohol or drugs.
  • Provide alcoholism or drug abuse recovery or treatment services.
  • Oversee patients’ self-administered medications.
  • Treat substance abuse disorders, including detoxification.

More specifically, our medical providers can:

  • Collect labs on site.
  • Engage with patients onsite to provide incidental medical services.
  • Initiate and titrate Suboxone when indicated.
  • Initiate and adjust other medications used in the treatment of addiction such as naltrexone, acamprosate, disulfiram, and/or naloxone (among other MAT medications).
  • Administer long-acting injectable medications such as Vivitrol and Sublocade onsite.
  • Better address the medical and psychiatric conditions directly associated with addiction.
