At Avalon Malibu, our Substance Abuse Treatment Center offers a healthy, 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, including 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 ‘sub-acute detoxification.’
Avalon Malibu offers comprehensive substance abuse treatment programs. Our team of dedicated professionals is extensively trained to accommodate and aid in the recovery of our substance abuse clients. Our Residential Substance Abuse Treatment offers specific protocols including Inpatient Psych, Detoxification, Residential Treatment, Partial Hospitalization (day treatment), Intensive Outpatient Programs, and Outpatient Psychotherapy with Medication Management. Our emphasis is on integrating mind, body and spirit with evidenced-based therapeutic processes using expressive arts as a critical medium for change.

Substance Abuse Conditions We Treat:
At Avalon Malibu, our emphasis is on integrating mind, body and spirit with evidenced-based therapeutic processes. We combine 12 step approaches with group and individual psychotherapy. Avalon Malibu offers therapeutic interventions founded on evidenced-based principles of mindfulness, present time awareness, acceptance, investigation, and change. The principals of our educational and therapeutic model are formed using Motivational Enhancement Therapy combined with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapies.
Therapies We Use in Our Substance Abuse Treatment Program:
Avalon Malibu also offers family and couples therapy to help clients resolve conflicts, strengthen bonds, and forge positive relationship dynamics. Addiction not only challenges the addict, its impact challenges friends, family, and co-workers. Our psychologists help facilitate a comprehensive healing process between the addict and their families. Releasing the shame that often accompanies the addict in moving toward understanding, forgiveness, and compassion are key to establishing loving relationships within the family system. Family therapy is an important and integral part of the therapeutic process at Avalon Malibu.
At Avalon Malibu, every client who comes to our residential Cottage House for recovery also participates in one-on-one psychotherapy and counseling, as well as group therapies, and marriage and family therapy when needed. Avalon Malibu also provides extensive aftercare planning and counseling, with the goal of improving retention in treatment, and reducing behaviors such as unemployment, family discourse, and self-harming 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.
