Recovery Month is a time to honor the remarkable dedication of countless people who have embarked on the lifelong journey to sobriety. Since 2003, Hope by the Sea has been instrumental in helping our clients rebuild their lives. From humble beginnings to becoming a beacon of optimism for people from all walks of life, our program stands out as a Joint Commission-accredited recovery network.

Rooted in Vision and Expertise

Two decades ago, Hope by the Sea opened as a modest six-bed facility. Through hard work and a steadfast commitment to supporting the unique needs of people in recovery, our family-owned rehab has burgeoned into one of California’s premier treatment centers. This evolution is a testament to the number of lives we have changed and saved.

Hope by the Sea began as a Carlsen family dream. Fueled by passion and knowledge, we have been the cornerstone of healing for hundreds of people who needed to find a new purpose. As a licensed and accredited facility, we take pride in our team of seasoned addiction professionals. Many of our staff members have been with us for decades, demonstrating an unwavering commitment to evidence-based care.

Spreading the Message With the Hopeaholics Podcast

Awareness is a powerful tool in the fight against addiction. After losing his soon-to-be son-in-law to fentanyl poisoning, founder Chad Carlsen found a renewed sense of purpose, taking his advocacy to the airwaves with the Hopeaholics podcast.

More than a weekly show, Hopeaholics is a movement – a clarion call to rise against the national opioid epidemic that has gripped our country. The podcast serves multiple purposes.

  1. Banishing the stigma: By sharing real stories, expert insights and recovery journeys, Hopeaholics helps break the cycle of shame around addiction.
  2. A reservoir of resources: Hopeaholics offers crucial information, advice and support for people struggling with their mental and behavioral health.
  3. Education and advocacy: Discussions and expert interviews educate listeners about the intricacies of addiction, treatment options and the latest research in the field.

Celebrating Hope by the Sea’s Dedication to Helping People Overcome Addiction

Beyond treatment, Hope by the Sea champions community empowerment. We work tirelessly to promote mental health awareness, provide resources and, most importantly, show that recovery is not only possible but achievable for anyone willing to take charge of their life. The Hopeaholics initiative stands as a testament to this belief, helping people understand that they’re not alone and that help is always available.

As we commemorate Recovery Month, let’s celebrate the institutions and initiatives that make recovery a tangible reality for many. Hope by the Sea has provided transformative treatment while being a guiding light for those grappling with the disease of addiction. Our growth, dedication and initiatives like the Hopeaholics podcast put recovery within your reach with awareness and support.
