Ocean Hills Recovery offers a 30-, 60-, and 90-day residential alcohol treatment program with a staff that really cares, and is CARF-certified; however, the company does have some flaws, including poor transparency and outdated information on its website, and no aftercare for program graduates. Overall, the company provides solid care with multiple payment options.
- Medically supervised detox
- Attractive treatment programs
- Insurance and payment options
Medically Supervised Detox
Ocean Hills Recovery offers a medically supervised detox at the onset to help prepare the client's mind and body for treatment. They use medications that are designed to help reduce any potential withdrawal symptoms associated with alcoholism.
Attractive Treatment Programs
Ocean Hills Recovery offers 30-,60-, and 90-day treatment programs that include individual, group, and family therapy. Their programs also include, yoga, gym, home-cooked meals and more. They also have gender-specific transitional treatment residences as well. Additionally, Ocean Hills Recovery uses a 12-step method of recovery as part of their comprehensive treatment which also includes a bio-psycho-social model. And they design a unique treatment program that's tailored to each client's individual needs.
Insurance and Payment Options
Ocean Hills Recovery does accept a wide variety of insurance plans. However, they don't provide much information on their website about their other payment options. They do state, however, that they have other financial options for you to consider. Unfortunately, you will have to contact them to find out exactly what those financial options are. This is rather inconvenient for potential clients as they will have to take the time to make contact even if they are still doing research and not quite yet in the decision-making stage.
- Limited information on website
- Old program success rate posted
- No aftercare or alumni programs
Limited Information on Website
While the Ocean Hills Recovery website is easy to use and navigate, the information they provide is extremely limited and so vague that it really isn't all that helpful when it comes to providing a potential client with enough information to make an educated decision about whether or not this treatment program is right for them. This forces each potential client to have to call to get more information and this might actually deter some from doing so.
Old Program Success Rate Posted
Ocean Hills Recovery states they had a 73% success rate in 2010 for their 90-day program, which is great, but that was many years ago. We feel they should post a current success rate percentage for each of their programs so their potential clients could get a better understanding of how well their treatment program is working now, and not how well it worked in 2010.
Times change, people change, and treatment methods change over time; therefore, this is something we feel they should correct immediately. Therefore, we encourage you to contact them and inquire as to what their current success rates are for each of the programs they provide. Then, based on that information, you can decide whether or not this is the right treatment program for you.
No Aftercare or Alumni Programs
Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that Ocean Hills Recovery offers an aftercare program or an alumni program either. Most alcohol treatment programs offer one or both of these important features. Addiction is a lifelong issue and the chances of continued success are greatly increased when client's have like-minded people they can reach out to and talk with about related struggles and other issues throughout the course of their lives. In addition to that, they also don't appear to offer any type of alumni program either. Both of which are extremely important in the ongoing success of any treatment program.
The Bottom Line
Ocean Hills Recovery does offer a medically supervised detox program at the onset of treatment. And, they have what appears to be some comforting features such as yoga, a gym and home-cooked meals, but we wouldn't say that makes them stand out. The website, however, doesn't provide a potential client with much information to go on which isn't helpful when one is in the research and information gathering stage. It's inconvenient and could be off-putting to a potential client just looking for some of the most basic information.
