The Canyon consists of two living residences, one for women and the other for men. The campus spans several acres with areas where clients can enjoy a peaceful natural setting while still receiving the highest clinical standard of alcohol and drug rehab available.

The Canyon at Peace Park is located in a beautiful natural wooded canyon in the Santa Monica Mountains in Malibu, California. We are located four miles from the Pacific Ocean and enjoy a climate that is cooled by the ocean air in the summer yet above the the marine layer that can cause overcast days on beach.

Video about The Canyon at Peace Park

The Canyon is located 34 miles from Los Angeles International Airport and 37 miles from the Bob Hope Burbank Airport.

The city of Malibu is a 27-mile (43.5 km) strip of Pacific coastline; a beachfront community famous for its warm, sandy beaches, and for being the home of countless movie stars and others associated with the Southern California entertainment industries. Most Malibu residents live within a few hundred yards of Pacific Coast Highway (California State Route 1), which traverses the city; the city is also bounded (more or less) by Topanga Canyon to the east, the Santa Monica Mountains to the north, the Pacific Ocean to the south, and Ventura County to the west. Its beaches include Surfrider Beach, Zuma Beach, Malibu State Beach and Topanga State Beach; its neighboring parks include Malibu Creek State Park and the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area.

Malibu is set in a Mediterranean climate, which is typical for beachfront communities of Southern California. The average summer daytime high is 78 F (25.6 C), whereas the winter nighttime low averages 49 F (9.4 C). Malibu receives an average of 15 inches (380 mm) of rain yearly, and is often covered with a marine layer due to its proximity to the coast. On average, one out of every three days in Malibu will have some sort of cloud cover until noon. Winters are generally mild and wet, whereas summers are warm and extremely dry, which makes the area prone to wildfires.

Dear Friends,

On November 10, 2018, the Woolsey Fire destroyed The Canyon at Peace Park’s treatment facility. At this time, The Canyon at Peace Park is not accepting patients for any services. We arranged for the safe and seamless discharge or transition of all patients when we were forced to evacuate due to the fire.

For over 12 years, The Canyon at Peace Park has been privileged to provide integrated treatment for addiction and co-occurring disorders to patients across the nation. Our main focus has always been on our patients and their success. We have served hundreds of patients and their families, providing exclusive treatment and services for a wide range of behavioral health and addiction issues.

Our trained, compassionate staff has been committed to delivering quality patient care with dignity and respect, with the goal of helping our patients return to their communities as healthier individuals. We are extremely proud of the sacrifices of those who worked every day, often under challenging circumstances, to positively impact our patients’ lives.

We thank the physicians and staff for their expertise and dedication in providing high quality, compassionate treatment and care to the patients we have served.

We look forward to carrying on The Canyon at Peace Park’s legacy through our outpatient locations in Santa Monica and Encino. Foundations Recovery Network also has other residential and outpatient facilities around the country offering the same high quality of service you’ve come to expect from us.
