We Care

South Coast Behavioral Health facilities are designed for people suffering from substance abuse and mental health disorders who seek in-depth therapy as an alternative to a hospital environment.

In working with thousands of addicts and alcoholics we’ve learned that many of them can benefit greatly from a non-restrictive outpatient environment. With a higher level of freedom the people in our care are able to maintain both work and school schedules, stay connected to loved ones, and are able to practice learned behavioral skills in the comfort of their own homes with full support from South Coast Behavioral Health’s professional staff. We offer a multitude of treatment options to give you the structure you need for your life.

Experience

While we recognize that many individuals struggle with psychological problems, our treatment focus is not only on the symptoms of your disorder but also the underlying issues that may have impacted and exacerbated your current mental health and substance abuse dependency.

We specialize in the in-patient and outpatient treatment of addicts, alcoholics, and persons dealing with mental health issues. Our programs are designed to empower individuals to become self-aware and to provide them with a strong sense of emotional control as well as a feeling of overall wellness.
