Long known as a center of spirituality, holistic healing and stunning natural beauty, Malibu is the ideal place to start your journey of recovery. Although it’s possible to find effective rehab programs across the United States, Malibu’s seaside location makes it the perfect setting to cultivate serenity and inner balance. In a luxurious facility staffed by some of the country’s top addiction experts, you’ll find the healing atmosphere you’re looking for. Learn why treatment in Malibu is unlike rehab anywhere else in the world.
Geography and Natural Beauty
Malibu is more than another Southern California city; it’s a community that takes pride in its parks, recreational facilities and beaches. Located along the Pacific coastline, Malibu has a diverse geography that includes not only cliffs and coves but mountains, canyons and wooded areas. Malibu is home to a wide range of wildlife, and its residents are committed to preserving this gem as a sanctuary for the native flora and fauna.
Malibu’s coastline is a safe haven for people in recovery. Alcohol use is allowed only for groups with specific permits, which means that you can enjoy the pristine coastline and sparkling waters without worrying about the triggers and temptations of daily life. The city has taken measures to preserve the peace and cleanliness of its beaches and coves by prohibiting dogs, cigarettes and bonfires.
From the time you arrive to the time you graduate from rehab in Malibu, you’ll feel transformed by the area’s beauty. The vast expanse of the Pacific and the silence of Malibu’s open spaces are conducive to self-exploration and reflection. As you go through the stages of treatment, the surroundings will help you stay focused on your personal recovery goals. Because Malibu attracts the country’s leading clinical professionals, you can count on receiving state-of-the-art recovery services within this beautiful environment.
Location and Setting
Although Malibu is renowned as an exclusive coastal retreat, the city is conveniently located near the heart of Los Angeles. If you live and work in the LA area, you won’t need to travel far to get away from the chaos and stress of the outside world. When you go through rehab in Malibu, you can easily stay in touch with the people closest to you. Your partner, spouse or children can attend counseling sessions and group therapy meetings with you if they live in the surrounding areas.
Malibu is close to several major airports, including Los Angeles International Airport, which is located less than 35 miles away. Depending on traffic conditions, driving time from LAX is only about 40 minutes. Rehab in Malibu appeals to LA residents who are involved in the entertainment industry, but Malibu also attracts visitors from around the country who want to experience recovery in a setting that promotes harmony and healing.
Luxury Accommodations With the Highest Clinical Standards
Detox from substance abuse can take a serious toll on your mental and physical health. As your body withdraws and the toxins leave your system, you could experience unpleasant side effects like agitation, anxiety, tremors, nausea and delusional thinking. During the withdrawal process, your vital signs and your psychological status should be monitored by consulting physicians to make sure you remain stable. In a comfortable, supportive, medically supervised Malibu rehab facility, the withdrawal process is much less taxing.
Some critics may argue that luxury isn’t necessary to the search for sobriety. However, we believe that natural beauty and a harmonious, visually pleasing decor provide a much-needed respite from the devastating effects of addiction. The non-stop stress and endless activity of daily life make it difficult to focus on therapy sessions and group meetings. We give you the opportunity to break away from the hectic environment of the outside world and dedicate all of your energies to healing your body and mind. Separate residences for men and women are provided, so you can concentrate on your recovery work without the social pressures of day-to-day life.
Healthful, organic meals, beautifully appointed accommodations and a private setting are the foundation of our rehab program. In addition, you’ll receive care of the highest standard by our licensed or certified addiction specialists. Staffed by professionals who are passionate about drug and alcohol rehabilitation, our facility gives you access to experts in the field of addiction treatment.
Our treatment staff includes:
- Consulting medical doctors/internists
- Clinical psychologists
- Licensed clinical social workers
- Licensed family therapists
- Certified addiction counselors
Drug and alcohol rehab requires not only a consideration of your physical needs but an exploration of your psyche and a cultivation of your spiritual life. An individualized treatment program can help you actualize your potential as you learn new coping strategies to deal with the challenges of addiction.
The Importance of Nutrition and Exercise
Malibu is known as one of the most health-conscious communities in California. One of the primary goals of our program is to start you on the road to restoring your physical health. According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, heavy drinking can interfere with your body’s absorption and usage of essential nutrients. Nutritional counseling plays a key role in your recovery by making up for months or years of damage to your vital organs.
With nutritious meals that appeal to your senses, you’ll begin replacing the vitamins and minerals that are depleted by addiction, such as:
- B-complex vitamins. These nutrients affect mood, cognitive performance, nerve function, blood circulation and metabolism.
- Vitamins A, D, E and K. These fat-soluble vitamins affect your skin, contribute to wound healing, influence your emotional stability and promote circulatory health.
- Calcium and magnesium. These minerals are vital to nerve function, muscle performance and bone formation.
- Iron and zinc. These elements are necessary for oxygen delivery throughout your body, for energy production and for wound healing.
Along with enjoying fresh gourmet meals prepared with food from local sources, you can regain your physical fitness by taking advantage of our exercise facilities. And with easy access to hiking trails, parks and beaches, the opportunities for outdoor exercise are virtually unlimited. For restorative exercise, you can take quiet nature walks, participate in yoga classes or spend time reflecting in our quiet Meditation Garden.
Holistic Addiction Treatment
Malibu draws spiritual seekers and holistic practitioners from all over the world to experience the benefits of this nurturing environment.
Within the Malibu community, the Canyon at Peace Park has been acknowledged as a sanctuary of holistic healing. We believe that recovering from the ravages of addiction requires a full range of holistic therapies, including:
- Equine assisted therapy
- Personal journaling
- Somatic experiencing
- Wellness therapy in nature
The cultural environment in Malibu fosters an exploration of therapeutic strategies. Our clinicians draw from a variety of therapeutic models, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and rational emotive therapy. Self-help groups and family therapy are also integral components of your recovery from substance abuse.
Creating Inner Peace
Since Malibu was founded, people have come to this community in search of inner harmony and peace. The Canyon at Peace Park offers a serene oasis that’s perfectly suited to recovery. Getting over the disease of addiction involves cleansing your body, rebuilding your self-esteem and restoring your spirit. Malibu provides all of the resources that you need to reach these goals — and more.
