At Avalon Malibu, 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.
The first step for those who need it will be supervised detoxification.
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 the amount 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 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.
Our luxury residential facilities are created for individuals who need intensive treatment and support, and our program is fully licensed to treat mental illness as well as addiction. These programs are designed not only for those who need round-the-clock support, 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.
Our Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) are designed for those who may not be able to afford residential treatment, or who don’t necessarily need constant monitoring. These individuals may already have a support system from their family or friends who can help monitor their situation and medications. Individuals must complete a primary treatment program before enrolling in this program. Our IOP programs are also designed for those who need to maintain other responsibilities such as family, work, etc.
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.
