Cliffside Malibu - Hazy Beach Cliffs

Inpatient Alcohol Rehab

When a heavy drinker becomes a real alcoholic, it’s time for an inpatient alcohol rehab. But few alcoholics recognize their problem that soon. They have to hit bottom before they’ll admit they’re powerless over alcohol. If you can’t control your drinking, you may be an alcoholic. If you are, you don’t have to hit a tragic “Lost Weekend” bottom to begin to recover from this fatal disease.

Located on two private acres in the hills of Malibu overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Cliffside Malibu is far away from city noise and stress. This beautiful natural setting guards privacy and allows you to focus on your recovery. We know the decision to enter a residential alcohol treatment program is very personal. Hidden away in quiet privacy, Cliffside Malibu helps people confront alcohol dependence issues without concern about confidentiality. It takes deep commitment to escape the grip of alcohol, and our program has everything you need to find physical, mental, and spiritual health. If you want to talk about our inpatient alcohol rehab, please call us now at (424) 320-3061.

Living in Luxury

Taking the steps necessary to recover from alcoholism calls for personal courage and commitment, but it doesn’t require hard living.

Cliffside Malibu spared no expense in decorating and appointing resident bedrooms, giving you the perfect refuge for rest, quiet reflection, and lasting rehabilitation.

Cliffside Malibu - Drug and Alcohol Addiction Treatment

How the Program Works

Our residents have every opportunity to build lasting sobriety, but your hard work is the key to getting well. Cliffside Malibu’s inpatient alcohol rehab program is a gradual process through three levels of treatment to recovery. Each level normally takes about 30 days, but the timing may vary with on your progress and need. Inpatient Primary Treatment involves intense group and individual work in a private residential setting to help you make a clean break from your old drinking patterns. You’ll attend group sessions, community meetings, individual therapy, and a weekly private session with a recovery coach. During Extended Care, the second less structured level of inpatient alcohol rehab, patients get passes to leave the facility for recovery-related events like 12-step meetings and family visits where you slowly enter sobriety in the outside world. Sober Living, the third level, involves living in a sober group home where you have chores and report to the house manager. Sober Living is a safe base from which a sober life really begins. You’ll gradually return to work, school, and family—this time as a recovering alcoholic.

Alcohol Rehab

Years of drinking take a terrible toll on an alcoholic’s body. Many alcoholics stopped seeing doctors years ago. You could come to treatment with serious dental problems or damaged internal organs. Our inpatient alcohol rehab medical staff includes psychiatrists, internists, and addictionologist who can treat physical and psychiatric conditions that might otherwise sabotage your recovery. After your physician-supervised detox from alcohol, we work with you to design an individual treatment schedule. Our gourmet chef provides healthy meals from the best fresh ingredients to restore health, bring renewed vitality, ensure lasting rehabilitation. His team also assures an appropriate healthy diet for people with special dietary needs. You’ll enjoy our swimming pool and Jacuzzi after a long day in treatment. At Cliffside Malibu, busy days at inpatient alcohol rehab are demanding and exhausting. Our fitness facilities and opportunities for acupuncture, massages, yoga, and meditation will help you relax, build strength, and clear your mind as you move toward a long, healthy recovery at our inpatient alcohol rehab.

Inpatient Alcohol Rehab

Drinking has probably led to some serious personal problems. Our professional inpatient alcohol rehab therapists have experience with many proven therapeutic approaches that help restore hope. Our staff specializes in addiction and recovery, post-traumatic stress disorder, interpersonal and relationship issues, grief and loss, and eating and mood disorders. Your daily group rehabilitation sessions focus on key sobriety issues during inpatient alcohol rehab to help you learn and talk about the 12 steps, the recovery process, preventing relapse, journaling, life assessment, and spirituality. Your private therapy will be three to five times a week, and you’ll meet with a personal recovery coach every week.

Cliffside Malibu offers a complete and effective set of tools to rebuild broken lives. In rebuilding your life, you’ll need to know your family is on your side.
