Since taking the reigns at Balboa Horizons for Women in 2008, Paul Moen, CEO, has believed that his premiere treatment center should extend its services to provide gender-specific care to both women and men. His dream is finally becoming a reality with the opening of Balboa Horizons for Men.
Based on the success of the small, gender-specific women’s programs, Moen plans to keep the new programs small and gender-specific as well. “This expansion is not about getting bigger, it’s simply about making sure that our quality addiction treatment is available to everyone,” he explains. And Moen is taking extreme care to ensure that the programs are indeed exceptional, immersing himself in every detail from daily scheduling to facility decor. He has assembled what he refers to as “the A-Team” of treatment professionals, support staff and therapists to run the programs, making time to interview each candidate personally.
The new men’s programs incorporate a variety of therapeutic modalities, a core 12-step approach and elements proven important to clients and their families, including:
Quality clinical services
Experienced multidisciplinary staff
Comprehensive continuum of care
Family involvement in treatment
Recovery support and relapse prevention
Balboa Horizons is not your average treatment center, largely because Paul Moen is not your average CEO. A 20-year veteran of the recovery community, Moen incorporates the principles of his personal recovery into his professional role. He values integrity, earning a reputation among his peers as an honest and reliable treatment professional. Never content to stay behind the scenes, Moen remains involved in every aspect of treatment at Balboa Horizons, working hands-on to ensure that his company delivers a product he believes in.
Moen explains what drives him to continually optimize the program at Balboa Horizons, saying, “None of this is about me or my ambition, it is about my responsibility to the individuals who have come to me for help. For some, this may be their only chance. I work hard to make Balboa Horizons a program that I am proud to put my name on, not at all because my reputation is on the line, but because their lives are on the line.” To learn more about Balboa Horizons’ new programs for men, please call
Balboa Horizons allowed me to be who I truly am, to acknowledge who I am as a person, and how to build off of that. They gave me both the spiritual and the therapeutic resources to craft my best life. I’m going on two years of sobriety, and couldn’t have done it without my family at Balboa Horizons.

I knew things were going to change when I came to Balboa Horizons, but I didn’t realize the magnitude of the changes that would occur within me. I went from being hopeless to having hope. My steps are lighter, my heart is gladder and that’s all thanks to the amazing staff at Balboa Horizons.

As his mother, I am so grateful for his recovery and that fact that ‘I have my son back.’ He still maintains contact with two friends he met through the program, and they both came to his wedding in November 2014. They all have a connection and I know that they will all be lifelong friends. I am very proud of all of them!

I felt I might lose my child forever to the disease of addiction. Today my son is over 15 months sober, working a program, employed, saving money, supporting himself, driving his own vehicle, and doing for others. He recently told me, ‘For the first time in my life, I am really happy.’ I will be forever grateful to the Balboa Horizons staff. I know it is always up to the individual to do the work, but you are providing the environment and expertise to facilitate recovery from a deadly disease.
