Individualized Treatment

When you are looking for a luxury treatment center, it is extremely important that you find individualized treatment for your needs. No two addictions are the same; everyone has different experiences, traumas and life stories that lead to addiction. Detoxing and withdrawal symptoms can differ in severity, circumstances are different from client to client and needs are constantly changing. That’s why it is important that you find a luxury treatment center that will take the time to develop a plan for your individual needs.

Evidence-Based Treatment

Upon entering luxury treatment, you will first need to undergo the detoxification process. This is often one of the most uncomfortable and most feared reasons for entering treatment for addiction. That is why we strive hard to make it as comfortable for you as possible in luxury treatment, including a 24/7 medical staff and medications to help curb your symptoms.

After the detoxification process, you will work with a dedicated psychotherapist who will help you uncover and overcome the root causes of your addiction – the situations or experiences that caused you to use in the first place. It’s not just about kicking the bad habit of substance abuse – it is being able to confront these root causes, learn how to handle the emotions of them and overcome triggers related to them to ensure a long-lasting recovery. You’ll also take part in group sessions to learn from other’s experiences, share in a safe place and be able to relate to others in the same situation as you.

Once you are ready to return home, you will be prepared with a carefully thought-out aftercare plan that you will have collaborated with your therapist on throughout your time in treatment. We make sure your aftercare program is carefully individualized, and that you will have all the resources you need to succeed after leaving luxury treatment. Your relationship with Cliffside does not end when you walk out the treatment center doors. We are only a phone call or email away, ready and waiting to help you until your recovery is so firmly entrenched as a way of life that you can’t imagine losing it, no matter what difficulties life throws your way.

Holistic Treatment

One of the many benefits of a luxury treatment center is the holistic treatment approaches that are used in conjunction with evidence-based treatment. Going through therapy detox symptoms can be an uncomfortable and emotional experience. That is why it is so important to keep your stress levels low, and comfort at an all-time high. Being able to calm your mind, strengthen your body and think clearly can help you better navigate the recovery process.

Holistic treatment methods include:

Amenities Provided

The day you enter luxury treatment, you have already experienced so much from your addiction. Your addiction has not only left you physically and emotionally damaged, but it is likely your career, family and other important parts of your life have been damaged, as well. Admitting you have a problem and making the decision to completely change your life is uncomfortable, no matter how badly you may need it. That is why we make sure our clients have the best luxury amenities available to make them feel comfortable during the treatment process.


One of the many reasons clients enjoy coming to a luxury treatment is for exactly that – the luxury. You may choose to stay in a private bedroom, which is beautifully decorated and comparable to that of a 5-star hotel. We also offer shared bedrooms – and they are not bunk beds or tiny, awkward rooms. They share the same luxury as a private room and are beautifully decorated for your comfort. Our rooms are equipped with in-room entertainment to help you unwind at the end of the day, or you can choose to spend time in the gorgeous living room to watch TV, play games and get to know new friends.

In addition to our beautiful rooms, our bathrooms share the same luxury. Each and every resident’s bathroom is its own private retreat. Our bathrooms feature separate water closets and are elegantly decorated and appointed with items such as Egyptian cotton towels and boutique soaps. We also provide laundry service to help take chores off your mind, as well as a 5-star hotel linen service.

We also offer a meditation garden if you need a moment to yourself, as well as a beautiful pool to help strengthen your body and begin a new routine.

Dining Services

Our world-class Cordon Bleu-trained chef offers only the freshest, finest ingredients from our gourmet kitchen and full-time kitchen staff. He uses careful preparation of our food, ensuring a nutritious, and delectable dining experience. Whatever your taste is, our chef and his staff are dedicated to making sure the food served to our residents is the tastiest, healthiest, and most nutritious meal they can get. Cliffside accommodates all dietary concerns such as vegetarian and vegan diets, and food allergies.

About Cliffside Malibu

Making sure you are comfortable, calm and in the best state of mind to receive treatment is of utmost importance. Experiencing active addiction can cause a lot of stress on the body, so being able to let go and take in healthy, positive habits in a luxury, serene environment is the biggest benefit of luxury treatment.

Each patient is then matched with one of these five stages of the Transtheoretical Model: Precontemplation, Contemplation, Preparation, Action, and Maintenance. An individualized treatment plan is created based on their current stage of change. This process is in place to ensure that all our patients receive the best treatment path possible for their own specific need. Our goal is to move individuals through their treatment by assessing their readiness for change and formulating stage-matched interventions in order to move them through their respective stage.

It is the policy of Cliffside Malibu to ensure that all individuals who present with chemical dependency issues are assessed for the appropriate level of care. We strive to provide a continuum of care including medically supervised detox, residential treatment, day treatment, and outpatient services. Services are provided to individuals with a primary diagnosis of substance abuse and/or alcohol addiction. Individuals seeking treatment are assessed by qualified staff to ensure program criteria are met and that each individual admitted is placed in the appropriate level of care for treatment. The program is designed and structured for individuals who are in need of a supportive environment in order to maintain Sobriety.
