Luxury Supervised Sub-Acute Detox

Drug and alcohol detoxification are the first steps in recovery, yet the fear of withdrawal is one of the biggest obstacles in the recovery process. At Avalon Malibu in California, we assist clients in drug and alcohol detox and help them overcome their fear, safely and comfortably. There is no one-size-fits-all treatment program. Each person who joins our therapeutic community comes to us with a different background, different issues and different needs. Therefore, our drug and alcohol programs offer individually designed treatments for every client.

When an individual arrives in our drug and alcohol detox program, the professional and caring staff will provide a full medical evaluation to confirm the need for detox. If detox is required, you will begin a personalized and medically supervised drug and alcohol detox program where you are monitored around the clock for safety, comfort, and reduced withdrawal symptoms.

Through our substance abuse detoxification treatment programs, we keep our clients safe and comfortable as they withdraw from chemical dependency.

Avalon Malibu specializes in the detox of many harmful substances, including:

Prescription Drug Detoxification:

Alcohol Detoxification:

There are Three Steps to Detoxification as it Pertains to Substance Abuse:

  • Evaluation
  • Stabilization
  • Entry into treatment

Before the intensive work of rehabilitation can begin, all of the toxins built up with the abuse of drugs and alcohol will need removal from the body. Long-term drug use produces excess toxins in the body when it is too much for the liver to process. The methodologies we offer at Avalon Malibu are used to begin the detoxification process so we can access a clearer mindset. Each client is made to feel supported, safe and as comfortable as possible during the transition into recovery.         

Once the type of substance abuse is identified for a client, and the body has been detoxed, a customizable treatment program will be developed to ensure a successful rehabilitation period.

Therapeutic Residential Drug and Alcohol Treatment Programs

Once we have cleansed the body of toxins, clients will begin their rehabilitation, starting with therapeutic work. Individual and group counseling sessions help clients work through and uncover deeply hidden causes of addiction. Self-medication is often the crutch people will turn to when situations become difficult; instead, we teach coping mechanisms to help them survive and work through stress. While physical activities make the body strong once again, psychological conditions must also be addressed, such as co-occurring disorders.

At Avalon Malibu, we offer intensive outpatient and residential programs for recovery from drug and alcohol addictions. Every program created at Avalon is individualized and adaptable to suit each client’s specific needs.

Therapies might include:

  • Gestalt
  • Psychodrama
  • Art therapy
  • Yoga
  • Massage
  • Acupuncture
  • 12-step groups
  • Non-12-step support groups
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy
  • Many other effective therapy approaches


Residential Drug and Alcohol Treatment Programs

Our luxury residential facilities are created for individuals who need intensive treatment and support, and our program is fully licensed to treat mental illness and addiction. These programs are designed not only for those who need round-the-clock assistance, but also for those who struggle with the cycle of substance abuse and mental health conditions. Treatment at Avalon is rooted in mindfulness, which helps teach clients the coping mechanisms they need to support and manage mental health conditions. Our beautiful facility is located on the beach in Malibu, so come and relax with us and get the support you need to overcome addiction.

Aftercare Addiction Treatment Programs

Aftercare and transition into everyday life are equally important in both the recovery process and in the rehabilitation experience itself that continues long after. At Avalon Malibu, we are committed to providing our clients with the support and communication they need to maintain their recovery and prevent relapse.

We hold a completion ceremony to honor the work the client has done, to allow the client to transition into independent living, and to affirm the continued communication and support needed to break the cycle of abuse and addiction. Each of our clients comes to us as a unique individual, and it is our mission to honor and respect that individuality while bringing a wide range of therapy models into play. We will work together with you to find the perfect combination of treatments for maximum relief and recovery.

Benefits of Unique, Personalized Drug and Alcohol Detox

At our gorgeous detox facility in Malibu, California, we have private, mostly single rooms that are beautifully appointed. Avalon is the only treatment center in Malibu with direct access to the beach and the serene Pacific Ocean.

One of the essential parts of detox and addiction treatment is counseling with licensed and experienced therapists. Avalon Malibu’s one-on-one, group and family therapy, and community-based resources and referrals such as self-help groups, help clients improve their relationships and their ability to function in the community. Avalon’s treatment provides each patient with the tools they need to accomplish lifelong sobriety goals.

A vital tool for our clients to continue on the path to recovery is our use of the Earl Hightower, 10-session recovery experience called “The Bridge from Treatment to Recovery.”

Avalon Malibu is also the premier prescription drug detox center of choice. Our client’s prescription drug addiction can be treated by either behavioral or pharmacological programs, or a combination of both, based on the individual’s specific needs. These resources are not widely seen in other addiction treatment centers.

Avalon Malibu works with the individual in a holistic approach that considers anger and stress management, employment skills, and other tools to impart well-being.

Our dietitians and therapists work together to plan a specific program for each of our clients. Diet and exercise play an essential role in the healing and recovery process at Avalon Malibu.

Because drug and alcohol addiction often causes malnutrition and energy, and tissues can become strained during withdrawal, proper nutrition is essential during the detoxification process.

Clients are also encouraged to exercise, read and meditate while keeping their minds focused on the positive changes happening in their lives.

Our professional staff always assists each individual in developing a customized plan of action to achieve and maintain long-term abstinence from using drugs or alcohol.   

We will work with most out of network PPO and POS policies
