Licensed Addiction & Mental Health Treatment Center

Avalon Malibu is a California state licensed residential addiction treatment center dedicated to the treatment of adults experiencing substance use disorders as well as psychiatric and mental health issues.

Utilizing a collaborative, inter-disciplinary approach, we offer a place which provides a nurturing and therapeutic environment. Clients are encouraged to participate actively in their recovery.

Happiness is a choice of attitude. Resolve to choose gratefulness over regret until joy becomes your default setting. Why not embrace the symptom as a doorway to freedom? The process of healing is one of self-realization, the peeling away of the fears and negativity that obscure the light of your core self.

We take all PPO insurance policies. Call to verify your copay today.

Mel Pohl, MD, FASAM
Book Title: A Day Without Pain

Chronic Pain: It’s All In Your Head: When we think about pain we often wonder whether it’s “real” or not. We have a tendency to believe that pain based on emotions is less “valid” than physical pain. This discussion will explore the fact that all pain is real, based on neurophysiologic phenomena in specific parts of the brain. Treatment implications will be described as part of “Pain Recovery”.

Mel Pohl, MD, FASAM is a Board Certified Family Practitioner. He is the Vice President of Medical Affairs and Medical Director of Las Vegas Recovery, a private, freestanding chemical dependency and pain treatment fac­­­ility, and is licensed by the State of Nevada and accredited by the Joint Commission (JCAHO). Dr. Pohl was a major force in developing Las Vegas Recovery’s Chronic Pain rehabilitation program. The facility provides a complete continuum of care and has long been considered the best in the country.

Noah Levine, MA
Book Title: Refuge Recovery - A Buddhist path to recovering from addiction.

The Buddhist path to treating addiction is one of developing wisdom and compassion through meditation, renunciation and wise actions such as service, amends, forgiveness and generosity. Buddhism offers a non-thiestic spiritual path, perfect for the discerning Atheist addict. Refuge Recovery is a program that can work in conjunction with or as an alternative to twelve steps.

Noah Levine is the founder of the “Against The Stream Buddhist Meditation Society” with centers in Los Angeles and San Francisco and over 20 affiliated groups in North America and Europe. He teaches meditation groups, gives workshops and leads retreats internationally. Noah has created a process of addiction recovery based on the teachings of the Buddha called Refuge Recovery. He is the author of “Dharma Punx”, “Against the Stream”, “Heart of the Revolution” and “Refuge Recovery.”
