NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., September 1, 2015 --- Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian announced today a major expansion
and transformation of its substance abuse services, to be now known as
Hoag Addiction Treatment Centers. With tremendous community support, Hoag
has re-engineered a historic building on the hospital’s Newport
Beach campus to create a modern residential facility, setting a new bar
for today’s addiction treatment experience. The 21-bed facility,
which will begin accepting new patients in early September, will be the
only one of its kind in California that is located on an acute care hospital campus.
For nearly 30 years, Hoag has been a leader in evidence-based addiction
recovery treatment. With the addition of this new residential facility
(or “rehab”), otherwise known as SolMar Recovery, Hoag Addiction
Treatment Centers will offer the Orange County community the most comprehensive
continuum available in addiction care. Hoag is uniquely positioned to
tailor treatment to the needs of the individual.
“Hoag is one of few rehabilitation centers in the nation to build
its treatment programs on a foundation of evidenced-based medicine connected
to a hospital campus and a world-class health system,” said Steven
Ey, M.D., Medical Director of Hoag Addiction Treatment Centers. “In
fact, all of our addiction treatment services offered in Newport and Irvine
are part of Hoag Neurosciences Institute, which underscores the fact that
addiction is a brain disease that can be successfully treated.”
For many, time in treatment remains a key ingredient for effective care.
Dr. Ey explains, “By adding a residential component to our long-standing
Addiction Treatment Centers, we’re enhancing the treatment experience
for those people that require 30 to 90 days in a residential transitional
structure and support for successful outcomes.”
While recovery is an individual challenge, the families of those in recovery
will impact the process as powerfully as they are impacted by it. Like
all of Hoag’s existing inpatient and outpatient addiction treatment
services, the new residential experience will place a strong emphasis
on family support and participation.
“Once in treatment, families find the recovery process is about much
more than one person’s abstinence from drugs or alcohol. The process
of recovery is also a process of self-discovery and family reunification,”
says Marshall Moncrief, Executive Operations Director of Hoag Addiction
Treatment Centers. “The most rewarding part of our work is to walk
alongside and witness these courageous families as the very problem that
plagued them becomes a springboard for a deeper life experience.”
Hoag Addiction Treatment Centers offer the highest caliber clinical care,
from triage, to admission, to the transition back into the community.
By employing contemporary therapeutic models alongside traditional care
methods, Hoag has created a much-needed alternative in safely guiding
families from the trauma of addiction toward a more productive partnership
in a sustainable recovery.
Summarizing the multiple benefits of the SolMar Recovery facility and its
unique location, Moncrief states, “Hoag’s promise to the community
is to provide the highest quality – highest value – healthcare,
and we’ve held to that promise here. By creating SolMar Recovery,
we’ve combined all the safety, security, and clinical capability
of Hoag’s nationally-recognized clinical multidisciplinary expertise,
in a place that feels like home.”
Addiction is a serious, scary and growing problem for many in our community.
Fortunately, with the comprehensive continuum of Hoag Addiction Treatment
Centers, the newest addition of SolMar Recovery residential facility to
Hoag’s multidisciplinary and comprehensive collection of brain health
programs housed under the Hoag Neurosciences Institute umbrella, recovery
is a hope-filled reality.
Hoag Addiction Treatment Centers also offers focused services for working
professionals, young adults, and people with chronic pain and dual diagnoses.
