As a service to the community, Cliffside Malibu has developed an educational resources department headed by Dr. Constance Scharff, an addiction scholar and co-author of Ending Addiction for Good: The Groundbreaking, Holistic, Evidence-Based Way to Transform Your Life.

Cliffside Malibu is the only treatment facility that we are aware of that has a full time addiction researcher on its staff. We consider it our responsibility to be in the research and development business so that we are always on the cutting edge of the newest and most beneficial treatments for addiction and alcoholism in the industry.

In addition, we provide updated access to addiction information and research on our education page, provide training to mental health professionals and the general public through Dr. Scharff’s speaking engagements, and give 100% of our proceeds from the book Ending Addiction for Good to non-profit treatment centers to help those in need receive treatment.

If you are interested in a particular topic relating to addiction and recovery, please write to us at so that we may research and write an article about it.
