Cliffside Malibu - Hazy Beach Cliffs

Dual Diagnosis Center

A good dual diagnosis center is one that treats you individually. You shouldn’t have to adapt to one single treatment plan. Instead, a personalized plan should be created just for you. No two people are exactly the same, so no two treatment plans should be exactly the same. At Cliffside Malibu, we create an individualized treatment plan for each person as soon as they arrive. We know that this individual treatment is one of the keys to our success rate. You deserve a dual diagnosis center that will treat you with respect, like an individual, every moment. Don’t opt for anything less when you decide to get treatment and change your life.

Our dual diagnosis center is set high in the Malibu, California hills. It’s away from the hustle and bustle of highways and city life. But you won’t feel isolated while you’re at Cliffside Malibu. The grounds are about 2 acres of land that you can enjoy with horseback riding, hiking and other activities. The facility has a gorgeous Pacific Ocean view, and there’s even private beach access that you can take advantage of. Our dual diagnosis center is more than just a person with substance use disorderion recovery treatment center. It’s a sanctuary where you can rest and enjoy yourself while you’re overcoming addiction and mental illness. Give yourself this chance. Pick up the phone and call Cliffside Malibu at (424) 320-3061.

A Luxury Center

A dual diagnosis center exists to treat people who suffer with addiction to alcohol and drugs who also suffer from a mental disorder. It’s common for a mood disorder to be present when someone is addicted. Unfortunately, sometimes the mood disorder and the addiction are treated separately, or only the addiction is treated, making recovery even more of a challenge. At our dual diagnosis center, we treat both conditions at the same time. This is the only real way to ensure that one doesn’t continue feeding the other and make it seem impossible to overcome either one.

Our dual diagnosis center and drug rehab is also a luxury facility, for very specific reasons. First, you know that you’ve been suffering with these problems. Life can be difficult and dreary with either addiction or mental illness. When you have both, life can seem something more to dread than to look forward to. When you recover in beauty and luxury, you feel pampered. And feeling pampered probably isn’t something you’re accustomed to. Even if you are, it might not have felt the same thanks to a mood disorder that keeps you from seeing the good in things. At our dual diagnosis center, you will finally be able to see the positive thing around you. That momentum will keep you recovering and feeling better each day.

Alcohol or Drug Treatment Center

People come to our dual diagnosis center all the time who have already gone through an alcohol treatment center or a drug rehab. They may have been through more than one program. Some have tried 12 step programs, self-help, “just saying no,” and other means of trying to get clean and sober. But because they also weren’t being treated for mental illness, they couldn’t do it. If even they were being treated for a mental disorder, if that treatment was separate from their addiction treatment it was setting them up for failure. You need a dual diagnosis center that treats you as a whole person, and not as a person with substance use disorderion, or a mental disorder. You need total person treatment.

Our dual diagnosis center, Cliffside Malibu, takes that holistic approach and treats you like a whole person that needs to heal, rather than as one disorder or addiction. Our focus is on all of you, all the time. We support you with good nutrition in the gourmet meals you’ll be served. Physical activities are available to support you physically as you recover. The beautiful surroundings support you mentally and emotionally. And spiritual support is available at our dual diagnosis center, both formally, and through things like alternative therapies and a meditation garden. Be supported throughout your recovery.

Your Dual Diagnosis Center

At Cliffside Malibu, we understand the special nature of your problems. We know it’s not going to be easy for you, and we never pretend that it will be just to make you feel better. We know it will be hard, and we want you to understand that. But hard and impossible aren’t the same things. You can recover at our dual diagnosis center. Many other people who thought they could never get better came here and got better. So can you.

When you come to a dual diagnosis center and you don’t feel like you have to stay locked in a room when you’re not in therapy, you’re going to feel more relaxed. Feeling secure and relaxed will help you accept the therapies more readily. Have you ever really made progress in anything when you were bored, distracted, uncomfortable or frightened? Treatment is the same way. If you’re in a drab room with nothing to do, it’s hard to focus on what’s important. Surroundings like that can even depress you further.
