The Pat Moore Foundation in Costa Mesa, California, is a not for profit facility that has been providing detox and residential substance abuse services for more than 30 years. Treatment is individualized and offers elements of the 12 steps, group and individual therapy, and holistic therapeutic options, including equine therapy.
Accommodations and Food
The residential housing for the Pat Moore Foundation is based on a campus that is between two of Southern California’s beautiful beaches, Huntington and Newport. The living quarters are private cottages that sleep two, with a small kitchen complete with full refrigerator and stove, a couch, dining table and full bathroom. The bedrooms have full beds, nightstands and dressers for each client. Linens are provided in every room as well. Though the campus is for both men and women, the cottages are gender specific.
Twice a month a nutritionist comes to the facility to offer personalized tips and classes. Three meals a day are provided and made on site by the kitchen staff. There are set menus and the clients dine together in the large, shared dining hall or the picnic tables outside.
Treatment and Staff
Treatment is evidence-based and gender separated, offering clients several group therapy sessions per week and one individual session. Typically, clients stay in the residential program for about 90 days, although 30 and 60 day options are available. If the client needs to begin treatment with detox, the facility provides separate housing for the five to seven day stay that is monitored 24 hours a day by medical staff.
Once in the residential process, the day begins at 7 am with meditation and house chores, which is on a rotating schedule, followed by breakfast. Around the meal schedule there are groups with a different focus each day, like relapse prevention, the 12 steps, or educational lectures. There are daily assignments, like journaling or Big Book study, or house meetings where clients get together as a check in with staff. Free time is also incorporated into every day, as well as exercise or vocational training.
The therapy is individualized to the client’s specific needs, and can include dual diagnosis programs, or medication management services, which can entail Suboxone or Vivitrol. There are support group meetings daily on campus and clients attend off site meetings as well several times a week. The facility welcomes expert guest lecturers every week, and the staff is comprised of Master’s-level therapists and doctors, like psychiatrists, LPN and addiction counselors. There are also support staff that are on campus 24 hours a day and are there to show the clients around the campus, be on hand to answer questions or if guidance is needed, and assist the clients with their therapy schedules.
In addition to a regular schedule of therapy, the facility offers plenty of physical and extracurricular activities to go hand in hand with treatment on and off campus; beach trips, twice weekly visits to the local gym, kayaking and beach volleyball, Sunday brunches, and weekend retreats in the San Bernardino Mountains just to name a few.
Weekly family counseling services, group therapy and weekends are offered to all family members of clients, as well as continued check-ins from the support staff. There are specialty services for clients who come to the facility with visual or hearing impairments, and aftercare programs that may include sober living planning. Pat Moore Foundation also offers a guarantee to their clients who have completed at least 90 days of treatment that if relapse occurs within 12 months of their program, they can return to treatment for 21 days for free.
Pat Moore is a family owned business that offers treatment in a supportive environment surrounded by beaches and sunshine. The philosophy is based on many years of experience in the recovery field, with a confidence in their treatment results that even includes a program guarantee.
