Substance Abuse Treatment and Therapy

Our substance abuse treatment at The Cottage House expertly specializes in treating substance addictions of all types. We understand that no addiction is the same–therefore, no addiction is treated in the same manner. Our personalized substance abuse treatment plans for both men and women include: detox, therapy, education, integrated family treatment, the 12-Step approach, holistic activities and more. Our individualized programs ensure that no one leaves our doors feeling neglected or untreated. Both patients and families are amazed to see their treatment results at Avalon Malibu, and each life is changed for the better.

Our substance abuse treatment center at The Cottage House is designed for our clients’ comfort and peace of mind. Our secluded waterfront property provides a sense of safety and community, encouraging our residents to relax and take the time they need to heal. Therapies and treatments are provided largely on-site for our clients’ convenience. At Avalon Malibu, we focus on providing our clients with the recovery tools they need to live a successful substance-free life when they leave our program. A main component of this approach is teaching productive habits like nutrition, exercise and mental wellness. We chose and created our treatment space at The Cottage House to particularly promote an atmosphere of holistic healing and healthy activity.

At The Cottage House, we are fully equipped to treat a range of substance addictions, including:

We are also able to provide treatment for clients with co-occurring or dual diagnoses, a common situation in which someone struggles with both a substance use disorder as well as a mental health disorder. It is vital that our clients receive expert treatment for everything that is ailing them, so that when they leave our programs they can be fully able to manage their health as they learn to live a sober life.

The Avalon Malibu Difference

For recovery success, we build substance abuse treatment plans focusing heavily on comfort, nutrition and psychotherapies. Clients will be comfortable at The Cottage House, where they will have support at any given time and can truly feel at home during the residential treatment stage of their recovery from substance addiction. We promote addiction healing in a peaceful setting where clients can feel total relaxation and focus on their bodies and mind. Our therapies include customizable options, including group therapy, individual therapy, family workshops, holistic therapies and nutritional counseling.

At Avalon Malibu, our approach stands out because we care deeply about each of our clients’ short- and long-term recovery. We treat everyone who enters our programs with individualized respect and dignity so that they can find a path to recovery that works with their own wants, needs and experiences. We offer therapies that have proven themselves effective through years of use and research, and we provide them in a setting that helps our clients feel comforted and cared for.

Substance Abuse Detox

The difficulty of the detox process is one of the main reasons that overcoming an addiction or avoiding relapse is such a daunting process. As the body begins to rid itself of a substance it relies on, the physical and mental symptoms are unpleasant to face alone or without medical assistance. Many substance abuse treatment programs offer in-house detox treatment to ease their clients’ passage through this phase of recovery. Specialized detox treatment also ensure that each client is physically well before they begin mental health treatment for their substance addiction.

At The Cottage House at Avalon Malibu, we are equipped to provide detoxification services in the initial phase of the recovery process. We are also able to provide clinically monitored or medically-assisted detox when warranted. Within the first 24 hours of admission, each client will visit with one of our independently contracted board-certified physicians. The client will be evaluated for withdrawal symptoms and, if deemed appropriate, will be medicated safely and according to their needs. Not all detox processes require medication, though, and many of our clients come to us after they have gone through detox elsewhere. We will still ensure that your transition into residential recovery treatment goes smoothly and that you are healthy enough to begin therapy in a productive manner.

Our detox programs specialize in:

  • Sub-acute alcohol detoxification
  • Drug detoxification
  • Prescription drug detoxification
