Welcome to Cliffside Malibu! Each and every member of our staff is dedicated to assisting each resident on their own unique path to sobriety. From our resident advisors to our program director, we all view residents as the individuals they are, and offer them our greatest care. Our mission, as a staff, is to offer residents suffering from substance dependence the opportunity to develop a strong foundation in recovery from which they can build a life free of alcohol and drugs.
