Cliffside Malibu - Drug and Alcohol Addiction Treatment


Our goal is to give our residents every possible chance at permanent sobriety. When you consider the many years of hard drinking that brought you to this point, you’ll appreciate how important it is to devote time and hard work to getting well. Cliffside Malibu’s residential alcohol rehab program moves gradually toward a new sober life through three phases of treatment. While each level usually takes 30 days, each person spends the time they need based on their progress. We will give you, or your loved one, every possible opportunity for success.

Residential Primary Treatment, as described above, involves intense work in a luxurious residential environment. Extended care is a less structured phase of residential alcohol rehab. During extended care, guests leave the rehab facility for recovery-oriented activities including 12-step meetings and work with their sponsor. They can also begin to re-enter their normal life as sober individuals. During Sober Living, residents move to a sober group home with assigned chores and accountability to a house manager. Sober Living provides a safe foundation for recovery in the outside world with a gradual return to family, school, and work.
