Cliffside Malibu - Hazy Beach Cliffs

Long Term Alcohol Rehab

When a heavy drinker crosses that invisible line into alcoholism, it’s time for a long-term alcohol rehab. Sadly, not many alcoholics recognize their problem that soon. They have to reach a personal bottom before they’re willing to admit that they’re powerless over alcohol. If you have trouble controlling your drinking, you may be an alcoholic. If you are, you don’t have to lose everything and reach a “Lost Weekend” bottom to begin to recover from this fatal disease. Cliffside Malibu is the best long-term alcohol rehab in the Los Angeles area.

Overlooking the Pacific Ocean north of Zuma Beach, Cliffside Malibu is nested on two private acres in the hills of Malibu. City noise and stress seem far away in this beautiful setting that guards privacy and allows you to focus on putting down the bottle forever. We know that the decision to enter a long-term alcohol treatment center is very personal. This intimate setting helps people confront alcohol dependence issues without concern about confidentiality or privacy. Left untreated, alcoholism is a fatal disease. It takes deep commitment to escape the grip of alcohol, and our program offers everything you need to recover your physical, mental, and spiritual health.

Rehab Works

We give our residents every chance for lasting sobriety. When you consider the years of drinking it took to get here, you’ll know how important your hard work is to getting well. Cliffside Malibu’s long-term alcohol rehab program moves you gradually toward a new sober life through three levels of treatment. Each level takes about 30 days, but it can vary based on your progress. Long-term Primary Treatment involves intense work in a residential environment. This helps you make a clean break from your old drinking patterns. You’ll attend group rehabilitation sessions, community meetings, individual therapy, and a weekly private session with a recovery coach.

Extended Care is the second, less structured level of long-term alcohol rehab. During this substance abuse treatment phase, 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, takes place in a sober group home where you have household chores and report every day to the house manager. Sober Living is a safe base from which recovery in the outside world can begin as you gradually return to work, school, and family? this time as a sober recovering alcoholic.

Physical Recovery Comes FIrst

You may not realize it, but years of drinking take a terrible physical toll. Many long-time alcoholics have long since stopped seeing doctors. You may have serious dental problems or damage to your internal organs. Cliffside Malibu’s long-term alcohol rehab medical staff includes psychiatrists, internists, and addictionologist who treat physical and psychiatric conditions that might otherwise sabotage your recovery. After physician-supervised detox from alcohol, we work with you to design an individual treatment schedule.

Our gourmet chef provides delicious healthy meals to restore health and vitality. He and his team assure that people with special dietary needs get an appropriate diet. Physical fitness is critical to successful long-term alcohol rehab. You’ll enjoy our swimming pool and Jacuzzi. At Cliffside Malibu, the days are demanding and exhausting. Using our fitness facilities and taking advantage of acupuncture, massages, yoga, and meditation will help you relax and clear your mind as you move toward a long, healthy recovery at our long-term alcohol rehab.
