With so many California drug rehab centers, how do you choose?

A quick web search for California drug rehab centers is…not quick. There are hundreds of treatment programs to choose from all proclaiming the superiority of their therapies and centers. Some advertise a single, one-size-fits-all method of treating drug and alcohol addiction, while others claim to be innovative. Some tout familiar, traditional “cures” and others carry an easily recognized celebrity name.

With so many choices, how do you know which one is “the best”? Which has the rehab program that will work for you, personally?

Cliffside Malibu makes it easy to choose

Cliffside Malibu makes it easy to choose

Many websites use the word “luxury.” Sounds nice, you may think, but I’m not looking for a vacation, I’m looking for a treatment center that can get me off drugs and/or alcohol and keep me off.

They’re right, feeling nurtured and pampered is important during treatment. Having your physical needs met frees you to be able to do the important psychological and emotional work that recovery requires. Addiction treatment should not be a punishment, where you have to make your bed or do chores to give yourself “structure.” Your only priority needs to be recovery. A luxury drug rehab allows you to focus on what’s important

Cliffside Malibu goes even further. Its world-class resort appeal comes from its idyllic two acre property tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles. Modern amenities such as plasma TVs in every bedroom, wireless internet access and a fully-equipped gym are provided. The gorgeous property contains a private rose garden and meditation garden, hiking and biking trails, lap pool, and a sundeck facing the ocean.

How does the treatment center handle detox?

How does the treatment center handle detox?

It is important to find out how the rehab handles detox. Some theorize that suffering during detox is beneficial. They believe the memory of how painful detox was will deter you from using again. There is no evidence to substantiate this. If you’ve ever tried to quit on your own, you may have made it a few hours–maybe even a few days–and then given up because the withdrawal symptoms were too painful to endure any longer.

At Cliffside Malibu drug detox is handled as a controlled, supervised withdrawal from drugs and alcohol. Depending on what substance(s) were used, duration of use, amount of intake, personal health before drug use and the damage that has been done to your body while using, withdrawal can range from uncomfortable to life-threatening. Experienced, medically trained addiction specialists need to be on hand to handle any complications that arise. The smoother the detox process, the sooner you will be ready to take the next steps towards recovery.
