Treatment Approach

Hospital-Based Addiction Treatment

Laguna Treatment Hospital offers a fully integrated, hospital-based detox and residential inpatient program to provide patients with a comfortable and comprehensive continuum of care from admission to discharge.

We offer evidence-based treatment approaches such as medication-assisted therapy (MAT) during the detox process and maintenance medications, such as suboxone for opioid addictions, that may continue throughout treatment and post-discharge.

Treatment Modalities

Within 24 hours of admission, all patients will consult with the medical director to determine an individualized treatment regimen as well as a lead psychiatrist to better understand which therapies should be included in their treatment.

Patients will undergo blood and urine testing to identify any underlying diseases or health conditions that will need to be monitored. We also offer detox beds which feature EarlySense technology for 24-hour monitoring of patient condition.


Double rooms are standard and fully furnished with 2 double beds and a shared en-suite bathroom. Those looking for added privacy can to upgrade to single occupancy rooms which come with a queen-sized bed and private en-suite bathroom.

Single room residents enjoy upgraded linens, mini-fridge, an in-room coffee maker and a TV (for a small fee).
