Education Is Critical. What You Need to Know…

At any stage of addiction or recovery it is important to have support. This kind of support can come from friends, family, or even online. Cliffside has several resources available on our Educational Resources page which help you through every stage of the recovery process. Whether you have a loved one you are trying to get into drug rehab, or if you have already been through alcohol rehab and are in recovery, we have something for everyone. Cliffside Malibu is the only addiction treatment facility in the world, to our knowledge, that employs a full time addiction researcher on its staff. We do this to give you access to the latest information on addiction research that is coming out of the world’s research centers. On our education page you will find free reports on addiction recovery as well as our daily blog, an educational resource that it is our pleasure to provide to the community. If you’d like to know more about addiction recovery and what we do at Cliffside Malibu, you may also purchase our best-selling book, Ending Addiction for Good.

This book, written by our Founder and CEO Richard Taite and our addiction researcher, Constance Scharff, PhD, will provide you with the complete layout of our treatment program and help you make decisions about your treatment future. (All proceeds go to non-profit treatment facilities to provide treatment for those who would otherwise be unable to obtain it.)
