Specialization

  • Dual Diagnosis/ Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

    These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.
  • Medical Detoxification

    Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.

I am concerned about this place. My daughter is being denied medical attention on a behavioral care unit. I understand she is depressed and suicidal, but medical care should not be with held. No one will answer the phone to address my concerns.

    My honest opinion this hospital and staff were the worst place & doctor(s) I've ever encountered in my life. Staff did not do anything positive to help my unwilling stay at Mission Laguna Beach Behavior Unit. I was charged for products I did not receive but not limited to such as nicotine gum & other services that I've never even tried in my life. This Doctors & staff made many serious medical report errors even such as my gender in his falsified & very untrue medical reports he reported false words defaming my character & seriously damaging my life. He reported total lies about me. He stated in his false & very untrue hospital daily report but not limited to social worker(s) and others very damaging false information that stated untrue words I never stated. Under his care I was put In a room with a disgusting mentally ill offender who came towards me doing a terrible disgusting act. I was put into a shower that was used as a toilet by others with only cold water while the door was pounded on by a nurse. A video camera was in my room over looking my bed. Staff walked into my room every 15 minutes made noise waking me up all night. When I was there violence was not uncommon with yelling & screaming all the time. I was told various times they were releasing me but when the time came they started they had changed there minds. My family came to hearing to have my released they all wanted me released everyone of them. Staff member lied & tricked my family in my 3 day court hearing with untrue statements. Beware of this scam they are called (Patients Advocates) this system this staff used tricked my family totally. The hospital staff lied and would not let my family see me before or during the 3 day court hearing. Staff stated to my family I'd be out in a couple days if the made a untrue statement about myself. I have prof of this. Beware advocate this hospital provided was not on my family's or my side at all. I was physically hit by other patients more than once, it was very dangerous at this hospital and was interrogated & fully tortured. I was over drugged by this Doctor that gave me a dangerously high blood pressure levels, the hospital falsified writing on various admission documents that I was forced under treat to unwilling sign. I could not read because hospital would not read the print. I wrote notes on paper work that were removed by staff when I ordered copies. That cost over $60.00. I was forced to do more than one AKG service I didn't want or ordered. The staff at night would remove blanket(s) from some patients beds they wanted to torture and put the cold air system on making patients freeze & this was done to me many of the nights. I filed a writ & l had been in the awful terrible asylum for 17 days and a God sent real OC Judge from the Santa Ana Orange County Court & My court appointed attorney. Outside the Laguna Mission hospital. I was released by this Judge and my life was saved from certain death. Note: If you have medical insurance or even Medicare you maybe in this awful system way longer than ever needed or wanted to to be in then those with no insurance who are out in most cases I saw very quickly before 3 days. Beware of this system that involves dishonest doctors, hospital & others. I could hear staff talking about various air-bore diseases not limit to TB, (MRSA) because of the urine, feces & other bodily fluids that are put in the carpet floors by sick persons. Carpets were not cleaned regularly when I was there. I saw hazard warning tape put in door ways more than once. Any persons who writes anything good about this place are making profit in some form or another or are friends with employ(s) or enjoy torturing the poor victims that are being abused in this awful place. Legal hold patient(s) are by far treated the much worse. Because the laws make it nearly impossible for the hospital staff to be held legally accountable for how they treat legal hold patients. So this hospital totally abused me & acted anyway they choose even physical, psychological torture & worse. This really happened to me & I never needed or wanted to be there. The medical bill is over $72,000 and growing. This is a Massive Scam

    If you have to go to an inpatient treatment facility, this is a beautiful one with ocean views. I don't think that is all that important in getting clean, but if you can afford a fancy rehab, go for it.
