Relationships must be built on very strong bonds for a couple’s commitment to one another to last. The commitment to, together, begin a new life journey, requires that same sort of strength. But how wonderful a thought to begin an exciting new life of sobriety with someone you love, much like when you made the commitment to that person to begin with?
It takes true love, patience, partnership and dedication to make that “second honeymoon” last a lifetime.
And we can help you do it. Our couples’ rehab program is so innovative it caught the attention of CNN. We are proud to be opening the door to recovery for a segment of people usually rewarded by society, but historically discriminated against when it comes to drug and alcohol rehab: Couples.
Instead, the idea of couple’s drug and alcohol recovery (but in a simplistic sense) seemed not only absurd to the behavioral health community but damaging. Aren’t couple’s co-dependent, after all?
Usually when drugs or alcohol are involved, yes. This is why couples who have battled alcoholism and drug addiction be it one or both of them need to be ready when they get back together that second time, third time, fourth time, or fifth time. And hopefully after rebuilding a sober relationship together with the help of couples rehab, this time will be the lasting time.
SOAR TO SOBER HEIGHTS IN SURF THERAPY
At couple’s therapy rehab, we believe a couple already knows the kind of commitment it takes to get sober, and are here to help them harness it. Harness it into enjoying their relationships again, before it became all about the drugs or the booze.
Maybe rehab should best be described as learning to love one’s self again, which of course is a prerequisite to loving someone else. What a dilemma, then, when two partners or spouses both have lost the ability to love one’s self, which must be true if they are neglecting their physical and mental health.
Not only are habits learned during addiction hard to break because they are associated with drug use – even habits as simple as driving past the bar after work can really make you crave a drink – they’re hard to break because of this:
How will you and your loved one replace all the time you spent using the substance you were using the last several months or years?
How are you going to do it amidst the usual financial mess addiction leaves behind?
The answers we would offer as we welcome you into our program are, “Are you really having fun doing what you’re doing now?” and “Do you think your financial situation is going to get better under the current circumstances?”
And then we will help you and your loved one create that new life with our nationally recognized couples therapy rehab program.

THE WIND AT YOUR BACK
The iconic, quintessential Orange County surfer town truly is a splash of happy Americana. Its clean coastline, for sure the coolest seaside strip in the Los Angeles basin, legendary pier and all, makes smiles.
It feels like a 1950s Annette Funicello flick and really takes you back to a simpler time.
Enjoying what California has to offer with the person you already have committed your life to. What could be better?
During drug addiction and alcohol treatment in couple’s therapy rehab in Orange County, you might decide to take up surfing after trying out our surf therapy treatment.
Never been up on a board to catch a wave? We can show you how.
You can take what is learned in your sobriety coaching and learn how to get up on a surfboard. What it’s about is using the strength you have inside you to make the adjustments to get up on that board. Not only the physical strength, but the intellectual strength as it pertains to balance.
Sober living is all about balance. It truly is exciting to succeed standing on your own two feet without drugs or alcohol.
Standing up on a surfboard for the first time is just as cool.
12 STEPS, OTHER PROGRAMS SUPPORTING THE SOBER COUPLE
Even for people who don’t care for the 12 steps, there are nuggets of information about healthy living that come from those meetings that are golden. For that reason, we strongly recommend those completing couple’s rehab to at least consider the 12 steps in their aftercare program if they have not tried it before.
However, we recognize the 12 steps do not work for everyone, and are happy to help our clients find alternative group support aftercare programs. Focusing on getting couples sober together is the only thing we do. It’s why we’re experts at doing it. Our professional and structured yet compassionate couples rehab program includes several components.
