The management staff at Avalon Malibu always expressed their satisfaction with my progress. They gave me recognition and made me feel good.
I entered Avalon 82 days ago severely depressed, addicted to drugs and alcohol and completely broken and hopeless. The staff welcomed me with open arms and has truly saved my life.The accommodations, food, amenities, views…all were amazing and I immediately felt comfortable with the all the staff from the directors, the chef, the RA’s, drivers, you name it…everyone that works here is so caring and fabulous. When you come in you are immediately assigned a practitioner and a psychiatrist…I was a late admission but neither of these doctors had me wait till morning and they both were on the phone with me till the wee hours of the night/early morning easing my withdrawal fears and answering every single question I had to make sure I was absolutely comfortable with medications and all that I may need until they could see me in person the next day. The counselors and therapists who run the daily groups are by far the most intuitive, knowledgeable and caring clinical staff members I have experienced in a residential setting (and I have been in a few rehabs before this).
Both my individual therapist and my family therapist have helped me beyond words. I came to Avalon with many, many issues…sexual assault and trauma from the past, binge eating disorder, bipolar depression, anxiety disorder and alcohol and drug addiction. Avalon has been able to help me treat all of these and get down to the real core issue underneath so much of the pain that I have experienced for decades. I am still here at Avalon, I will get 90 days sober next week and plan to extend beyond that as I know I still have work I need to do.
I can honestly say that Avalon was the best decision I have made in many years, I came here wanting to get better but not knowing how or even where to start and they have given me all that and more. I am so grateful to be able to create such a beautiful, sound and healthy foundation here and I encourage anyone considering Avalon to come take a tour, meet the staff and if you truly want to heal and do the work to have a better life…..this place works!!!
Nothing but good things to say about my experience with Avalon Malibu!
“There are a lot of treatment programs in the Los Angeles area but only a few are quality. Avalon is the very best at what they do. They actually care about the client. I always feel confident when I send a client to Avalon. I know they will be treated with the best care. I would send a family member there. Their staff is THE BEST!”
“I feel better coming out of Avalon than I have felt in over 10 years. I attribute this to the combination of group therapy, medication management, and holistics.”
Friendly staff from the top to the bottom. Communication was great. I felt safe.
I love the Avalon staff. They truly care for the clients and want to make sure we are safe and cared for.
The staff are really invested in me and want to see me succeed. They all went out of their way to help me through the entire process.

At Avalon, I wasn’t just another number in a group. They figured out what methods of treatment and therapy would be most beneficial to me. I felt immediately accepted and understood.
This facility is magnificent. Avalon has an outstanding chef who met all of my needs as a celiac and was always willing to help me get what I needed.
Avalon exceeded my every expectation.
I am grateful for all the support I received. I feel prepared to take what I’ve learned and apply it to my daily living in order to truly live a full, peaceful and rewarding life.
Being at Avalon is the best thing that has ever happened to me. Not only did I get sober and started living before treatment, Avalon took my self-worth and future plans to the moon. I truly feel like I can do anything I set my mind to after being here and working on core issues I never knew existed.
Avalon’s intensive program has given me a clear understanding of my emotions and a means of coping with them.
