Crisis Intervention

Crisis intervention is only successful when you are prepared for anything. At Cliffside Malibu, we follow four steps so an intervention can be effective. The first step to effective crisis intervention is to listen. By listening, we are building trust and support. The relationship that we build with our patients at Cliffside Malibu is a relationship that is built on a solid foundation of trust. Without trust, a crisis intervention will have no justice. We also identify the precipitating problems and help you deal with who you are and then diffuse the feelings you have. If you have a person with substance use disorderion, then you have a crisis, and during this crisis, you may be confused about how you feel.

That is why it is so important to seek medical help through crisis intervention. We will also go by first name basis if it is okay with the individual patient. At Cliffside Malibu, we will ask and use feeling statements so we can know how to help you individually. The more we know about you, the better we can help you once you have made it through your crisis intervention. Our private drug rehab center can help you through your crisis.

Crisis Intervention & Elements Of Assessing

During a crisis intervention, the elements of assessing are really important. It is essential that the severity of the crisis be determined. We have to know how bad the individual was affected by the crisis. It is also important that we assess the potential for harm, physical or mental, to the individual or others. The medical staff that is treating you, during the crisis intervention, must identify the coping patterns and strengths as well. If you know that you are in the midst of a crisis, it is very important that you seek medical attention. Cliffside Malibu is one of the many crisis intervention centers that you can ask for help. Here we have techniques for assessing. When you come to our rehab, we will check to see if you are suicidal or homicidal. We will also find out how the crisis disrupted the normal life pattern. When our medical staff talks with you, we will see how your daily routines have been affected

Developing an Action Plan

When the staff here at Cliffside Malibu is preparing to develop an action plan towards crisis intervention, there are certain elements that have to be considered. First, we have to carefully choose and then use approaches toward action planning that are appropriate for each specific situation. We also have to assist in modifying the inadequate coping skills that you may have had before treatment. Once we have come up with some interests for treatment, we will create an action plan and the appropriate referral resources. Once all of this is completed we will plan for immediate action and implementation. In order for a crisis intervention to be successful, you have to be willing to get help and to overcome the crisis that has occurred in your life.


The fourth step in crisis intervention is closure. When you leave Cliffside Malibu, you will have a completely new outlook on life. When you walk through the doors of Cliffside Malibu, you are taking a vow to carry out a crisis intervention plan that we have created to help you overcome the crisis that you are in. Every day that you are here, you will learn how to focus on tomorrow instead of what happened yesterday. We realize that you will never completely heal from the crisis, but we can help you overcome the obstacles that the crisis has placed on the path before you. When you leave Cliffside Malibu, you will be a new person. The crisis intervention and drug treatment programs that we create are based on each individual’s experience. Once we have evaluated the patient and found out what happened and how it affected them, we will put the crisis intervention phase into action. Once we feel that the crisis intervention has done its job, you will be able to return to your old life free of worries.
