Malibu Outpatient Services

Have you gone to residential treatment somewhere and found that at home, things are a little rockier than you’d like? Did the aftercare plan you were given not measure up to your expectations and you’re afraid of relapse? Are you coming back from a short relapse and in need of fine-tuning, but not a full residential treatment experience? Did you enter a detox program, but your insurance will not cover residential treatment? If you answered yes to any of these questions, the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) at Cliffside Malibu may be for you.

What is IOP?

IOP is an addiction treatment and dual diagnosis (for co-occurring psychological disorders)treatment program that takes place at the Cliffside Malibu outpatient program, with Cliffside Malibu staff, but the client does not stay overnight at the facility. Individuals in the Cliffside Malibu IOP will meet at the center daily to undergo a host of treatment activities that will include twice-weekly individual intensive psychotherapy sessions and small group counseling activities. In addition, IOP clients have an opportunity to add on additional services as needed, which can occur on or off-site, including sessions with a private trainer, nutritionist, psychiatrist, yoga instructor, acupuncturist, meditation teachers or other whole-health practitioners.
