Cliffside Malibu - Hazy Beach Cliffs

California Alcohol Treatment

When a heavy drinker becomes an alcoholic, it’s time for California alcohol treatment. But few alcoholics recognize the problem soon enough. They must reach their alcoholic bottom admitting that they’re powerless over alcohol. If you can’t control your drinking, you could be an alcoholic. If you are, you don’t have to hit a hard bottom or lose everything to begin to recover from alcohol addiction. It takes personal commitment and hard work to escape the grip of alcohol, and our program has everything you need to restore your physical, mental, and spiritual health. Cliffside Malibu is the best California alcohol treatment you’ll find.

Just north of Zuma Beach, overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Cliffside Malibu nests in two private acres in the beautiful hills of Malibu. The city seems far away in this beautiful setting that guards privacy and helps you put down the bottle forever. We know the decision to enter California alcohol treatment is very personal. In this intimate natural setting, you can confront alcohol abuse issues without concern about confidentiality or privacy. If you want to talk about recovery at Cliffside Malibu, please call us now at (424) 320-3061.

How It Works

Our residents have every chance for lasting sobriety. After the years of drinking that got you here, you know how important your hard work will be to your recovery. Cliffside Malibu’s California alcohol treatment program moves you gradually to sober living through three levels of treatment and rehabilitation. Though each level takes about 30 days, your time in each level could vary. Primary Treatment involves hard work in a residential treatment environment that helps you make a clean break from your old drinking patterns. During California alcohol treatment at Cliffside Malibu, you’ll participate in group rehabilitation sessions and community meetings, individual therapy, and weekly private sessions with a personal recovery coach.

Extended Care is the second, less structured level of California alcohol and drug treatment at Cliffside Malibu. During this treatment level, you may leave the rehab facility for recovery-related activities like 12-step meetings and family visits where you begin to re-enter life. The third level, Sober Living, involves a sober group home where you are assigned household chores and report to the house manager. Sober Living is the base from which recovery in the outside world begins as you slowly return to work, school, and family— this time as a sober recovering alcoholic.

Physical Recovery is Paramount

Years of drinking take a terrible physical toll. Many alcoholics have stopped seeing doctors and come to us with serious dental problems or damaged internal organs. The medical staff at Cliffside Malibu’s California alcohol treatment includes psychiatrists, internists, and addictionologist who diagnose and treat physical and psychiatric conditions that could otherwise sabotage your recovery. After physician-supervised detox from alcohol, we help you design a personal treatment plan.

Our gourmet chef serves delicious nutritious meals made from the finest fresh ingredients to restore your health and vitality and ensure lasting rehabilitation. He also assures appropriate diets for people with special dietary needs. Good physical fitness is critical to successful California alcohol treatment. You’ll enjoy relaxing in our swimming pool and Jacuzzi. At Cliffside Malibu, the busy days drain you. Taking advantage of acupuncture, massage, yoga, and meditation will help you relax and refresh as you move toward a long, healthy recovery with our California alcohol treatment program.

Cliffside Malibu - Dual Diagnosis Behavioral and Mood Disorders

Drinking has created serious personal problems over the years, problems that may seem overwhelming. The professional therapists at our California alcohol treatment program know many different therapeutic approaches to help renew hope and optimism. They specialize in addiction and recovery, post-traumatic stress disorder, interpersonal and relationship issues, grief and loss, and eating and mood disorders. Focusing on recovery during California alcohol treatment, daily group rehabilitation sessions deal with the 12 steps, the recovery process, preventing relapse, journaling, life assessment, and spirituality. Individual therapy comes three to five times a week, and you’ll meet with a personal recovery coach weekly.

Cliffside Malibu offers a set of effective tools that help mend broken lives. While you’re recovering, you’ll want your family’s support and understanding. And your family will need help adjusting to the many life changes that come with rehabilitation. To assure their support, our addiction treatment program offers a highly-individualized family program. In family therapy, everyone learns about addiction, and you have the chance to express to your loved ones your feelings about addiction and recovery. We’ll help the family develop a well-balanced aftercare plan they can and will support.
