At Avalon Malibu, our Substance Abuse Treatment Center offers a healthful and positive life changing experience. Avalon Malibu’s sanctuary model is a forward thinking approach to addiction and psychiatric treatment.

We are committed to helping our clients impart new ways of living through progressive treatments that help expose and release old ways of behavior.

Avalon Malibu has two residential treatment houses one being the Cottage House where our substance abuse treatment program takes place. The Cottage House is licensed and certified by the California Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs (ADP), and JCAHO Accredited, to treat substance use and abuse disorders along with co-occurring behavioral health issues. The program is also licensed to treat adults in an inpatient setting in what is considered to be a ‘sub-acute detoxification.’

The Importance of Family and Couples Therapy

Avalon Malibu offers couples and family therapy aimed at helping clients resolve conflicts, strengthen healthy bonds, and forge positive relationship dynamics. Addiction not only challenges the addict. Its impact challenges the family, friends, co-workers and loved ones. Our psychologists help facilitate the healing process between the addict and their family. Releasing the shame and blame that often accompany the addict in moving towards understanding, forgiveness and compassion are key to establishing healthy relationships within the family system. Family therapy is an important and integral part of the therapeutic process at Avalon Malibu.

Our Primary Focus is Your Recovery

At Avalon Malibu, every client who comes to our residential Cottage House for recovery also participates in one on one psychotherapy and counseling, along with group therapies, and marriage and family therapy when needed. Avalon Malibu also provides extensive aftercare planning and counseling with a goal to improve retention in treatment, in order to reduce behaviors such as unemployment, family discourse, and self-harmful behaviors. We assist each client with gaining greater insight into the meaning of life, where the pain of the past becomes a stepping stone to a future built on choice, rather than compulsion.
