Cliffside Malibu employs a cutting edge, evidence based, holistic treatment protocol that uses a multitude of different therapies and interventions to peel away the layers of addiction, as well as “The Stages of Change Model” to help determine in large part when a client is ready for their next level of care.

Cliffside Malibu Guarantee for Drug and Alcohol Treatment

Cliffside Malibu has 3 levels of care: Primary Care (includes detox if needed), Extended Care, and Continuing Care. Each level of care is a minimum of 30 days in length and may be at different cost structures depending upon the client’s needs, desires, and availability. At Cliffside Malibu, we offer a guarantee that if the client completes all 3 levels of care at our facility and follows our aftercare recommendations, but has a relapse prior to obtaining one full year of sobriety, then Cliffside Malibu will take the client back into our 30 day Primary Care program free of charge. This is our way of matching the client’s commitment to help them completely recover, thrive, and ultimately be the best person they were always meant to be.

However, as always the client will be responsible for paying both the medical doctor and/or psychiatrist at their normal rates of $1500 each, plus any and all detox medication and/or prescription medication needed while at Cliffside Malibu. These payments are to be made directly to the corresponding doctor(s) and pharmacy.

In order to transition from one level of care to another a client must reach treatment goals and objectives outlined by their primary care therapist. Because everyone is different and comes in to treatment at a different stage of change, in some, in fact a majority of instances all 3 levels of care can require more than a total of 90 days to successfully complete their treatment and graduate from the Cliffside Malibu program securing a certificate of graduation. Anyone with a certificate of graduation completing all 3 levels of care, signed by the CEO, automatically obtains our guarantee.

Cliffside Malibu is deeply dedicated to the complete recovery of our clientele, and because the evidence shows that long term treatment is far and away more successful than short term care we wanted to provide this guarantee so that any potential client might feel supported in making the right choice for his or her care.
