Cliffside Malibu - Hazy Beach Cliffs

Painkiller Addiction Treatment

Pain killer treatment is different than other types of addiction treatment because, in most cases, you actually started off needing the pain killer. You could have had an accident, went through surgery, or had some other type of illness that led you to needing prescription pain killers.

Pain killer treatment is different than other addiction treatments also because other addicts never needed their drug to start with; they started using it out of curiosity or pressure, but not because of needing it. This is why there are unique issues that need to be addressed in any pain killer treatment.

At Cliffside Malibu, we understand that physical pain may be the underlying cause of your drug abuse. We also understand that you may still require some form of pain management when you have completed your pain killer treatment with us.

At our luxury rehabilitation center, we will address every aspect of your addiction through offering luxury amenities, a fully qualified medical staff, and a variety of treatment options. If you suspect that your pain killer use has turned into addiction, call Cliffside Malibu today at (424) 320-3061 and speak with one of our caring staff members so that we can give you the hope of healing.

Part of what you will need to understand and what we will teach you in your pain killer treatment program at Cliffside Malibu, is the facts of your addiction or what led you to your pain killer treatment. It is a fact that many people facing pain killer addiction did not abuse their prescription drug. It is also a fact that even if you did take more of your drug, every once in a while, than you were supposed to, you may not have caused your addiction. During your drug rehab program at Cliffside Malibu, we will discuss these things in depth in classes like relapse prevention, during therapy, or during your “process” therapy. Most pain killer addictions begin because of prolonged use of the pain killer or high dose therapy when you were first prescribed it. Essentially, your body built a tolerance to the drug throughout the duration of your use, causing you to need higher doses consistently, and then leading to your body being dependent on it. This is more than likely what led you to your pain killer treatment, not because you are a drug abuser or addict. More than likely, even if you are in pain killer treatment, you only did what your doctor told you to do. If you do need to enroll in a pain killer treatment program, call Cliffside Malibu today at (424) 320-3061.


While what was stated above is true, there is still a high chance that your pain killer use turned into pain killer abuse. This means that sometime, in the duration of your use of pain killers, you either started taking more than what was prescribed or began to use it other than how it was meant (crushing or chewing pills to avoid the time release pattern). This means that you are, indeed, the root of your addiction because you did not follow your doctor’s orders. However, once you became addicted, you could not help yourself anymore. If this is the case that led you to your pain killer addiction treatment, you need to realize that treatment is not a punishment. You, just like any other addict, are facing a multi-dimensional disease and you deserve the same care and respect as anyone else.

At Cliffside Malibu, this is exactly what we will give you. A caring, supportive, and luxury environment in which you will be seen as an individual trying to take control of their life again through seeking pain killer treatment. You are an individual who will receive an individualized pain killer treatment plan. At Cliffside Malibu, you are NOT just another addict.


While there are other rehab facilities you can attend, one of the best rehab centers is found on the world famous beaches of Malibu California. Cliffside Malibu is a luxury rehab center offering an individualized pain killer treatment plan to you, in an exclusive environment. This means that as soon as you call us, Cliffside Malibu, at (424) 320-3061, you will be enrolled into a center with a limited number of enrolled guests so you can receive the individual attention you need. Moreover, at the beginning of your enrollment, before you start your painkiller treatment, you will go through a medical assessment so that we may decide, together, what programs will help you reach lasting sobriety.

Your pain killer treatment starts at Cliffside Malibu because we will help you through rehabilitation in the most comfortable way possible. We will offer you such amenities as a Jacuzzi, private balconies with ocean views, massages, a gourmet chef, even the option of participating in yoga and these are only a few of the luxury amenities you will experience during your pain killer treatment. With our help, you have the best possible chance of overcoming your addiction.


Essentially, luxury treatment does not mean you will not have to work, it only means that you will not have to work as much. Just as the first step in your treatment starts at home as you admit you have a problem and then enroll in a pain killer rehab program, all the other steps you have to go through to reach sobriety also depend on you.

You have to desire sobriety. You have to be willing to take all of the steps necessary to reach sobriety. Moreover, you have to apply what you learn during your treatment to your life outside of Cliffside Malibu. This is the only way that you will be able to overcome your pain killer addiction.
