Life at Cliffside Malibu
The treatment program at Cliffside Malibu has been designed to provide everything required for a full recovery from addiction. Yet, this is not a hospital. We do not believe that you have a disease or need to be treated as if you have a “chronic illness.” Rather, we know that you can completely overcome addiction and live the life of your dreams.
Commitment to Your Recovery
Cliffside Malibu has distinguished itself among treatment centers for its true commitment to your recovery. We have created a safe, comfortable home to remove every distraction we can for you and enable you to focus on reclaiming the life you deserve. Your recovery is our priority. We provide top-notch care that is proven to work. Our staff members are caring and devoted to our clients, and will be with you every step of the way in your journey with us, no matter what time of day or night. We are also well-versed in dealing with co-occurring disorders such as trauma, depression, ADHD, and anxiety – so we can help you with all your concerns. Cliffside Malibu is a home away from home where you will find the recovery you desire.
A Typical Day
There is no “typical” day at Cliffside Malibu, because every person receives a personal treatment plan. You will certainly spend a great deal of time with your personal psychotherapist and also in carefully selected groups. You will also participate in complementary therapies as needed – from equine therapy to personal athletic training. And you will have time to yourself, to use the computer, watch movies, journal, swim, meditate, or simply enjoy the Malibu sun.
Unlike other treatment centers, we provide each resident with his or her primary therapist. Our therapist to client ratio is never greater than 1:5, so that our therapists can be available to their clients and their families whenever necessary and give them the individual attention they require and deserve.
Daily treatment entails between 4 and 6 hours per day spent in individual, group, or other therapeutic processes. In addition, adjunctive holistic therapies, such as acupuncture, life-coaching, spiritual practice, meditation, and yoga are also offered to enhance the results of psychotherapy. Our treatment combines psychotherapy with holistic care to create real change that holds after the resident leaves treatment.
Your Cliffside Malibu “Home”
We want our residents to feel like they are staying in a high-end boutique hotel, with all their needs met so that they can focus on their recovery. We offer both private and shared rooms with turn down service. There are plasma TVs in each room with DVRs, cable and Direct TV, and Netflix. Our rooms all have Wi-Fi and 1000 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets. We don’t believe treatment should be a punitive process where residents are forced to make their beds and clean common areas. Rather, we provide a beautiful, comfortable home, to eliminate distractions that can cause residents to leave before they are able to sustain their recovery outside the safety of a treatment facility.
