Overcoming addiction is one of the more difficult issues that therapists face with their clients, yet it is the psychotherapist who more than any other will help the addict to understand his/her addictive behaviors and cycles of acting out, as well as put him/her in touch with complementary resources for recovery.
What Cliffside Offers
Cliffside Malibu provides a ground-breaking addiction treatment model in a boutique setting. Using intensive psychotherapy with complementary whole-health practices has given Cliffside Malibu one of the industry’s leading success rates for addiction treatment. Our intensive one-on-one psychotherapy is provided by caring professionals who will work closely with you both before and after the residential phase of treatment, as you deem necessary. We also provide a myriad of adjunctive whole-health therapies to our residents, to help them heal on the levels of mind, body, and spirit. You can expect collaboration and support from all members of our treatment staff.
The Difference That Makes the Difference
The treatment protocol at Cliffside Malibu is synergistic, creating results that none of the parts alone could provide. We involve our residents in intensive one-on-one and small group therapy anywhere from four to six hours each day along with whole-health therapies that are integrative and evidence-based. Our goal is to help the brain develop new neural pathways – changing not only chemistry, but function – so that clients who complete treatment with us have had not just a psychological change, but an actual change in the way the brain works, allowing them to stave off relapse and remain sober long term.
After Care Planning
Our primary goal is to return your client to you healthier than s/he was previously and able to maintain recovery, with support, at home. You will be actively involved in your client’s aftercare plan, not only to provide intensive one-on-one therapy and referrals to groups but also to develop local aftercare connections to adjunctive services as required. This could mean nutritionists, psychiatrists, acupuncturists, or others to provide ongoing care critical to your client’s full recovery.
