Inpatient Treatment

Inpatient Treatment

Our private and semi-private rooms, world-class staff, pool, and luxurious grounds offer the opportunity to rest and recover in comfort. Our chef is on hand to prepare every meal, and with a maximum of only 24 clients at a time, our clients won’t feel overwhelmed or lost in a crowd.

Why It’s Effective

We find that clients are better able to engage in the treatment process when they’re comfortable, taken care of, and offered the amenities they’re accustomed to. That’s why we’ve designed our treatment center to provide the highest standard of care.

Alumni Support

Alumni Support

Our weekly alumni events, including movie nights, bonfires, BBQs, and volunteer opportunities, foster a sense of connection between alumni. Inpatient clients are included in weekly alumni activities, allowing them to begin building a support network while still in treatment.

Why It’s Effective

A strong support network is crucial to the recovery process. We built and continue to foster our alumni network to offer that support long after our clients leave treatment.

Dual Diagnosis

Dual Diagnosis

We address substance abuse and its underlying causes, including co-occurring mental health issues like depression and anxiety, with comprehensive psychiatric care and evidence-based therapies.

Why It’s Effective

Treatment is rarely effective if all the issues aren’t addressed. That’s why we treat addiction and any co-occurring disorders simultaneously. Addressing each factor that’s contributing to our clients’ struggles helps them develop the tools to stay sober long term.

  • h

Alternative Therapies

Alternative Therapies

While we offer 12-step treatment at Promises Malibu, we recognize that the 12 steps aren’t for everyone. We offer an array of alternative therapies including EMDR, equine therapy, art therapy, and neurofeedback, which allows us to develop personalized treatment plans that are best suited for each individual.

Why It’s Effective

We customize our treatment plans to offer clients options that will work for them in the long term and can be integrated into their lives after treatment.

  • h

Family Program

Family Program

Each client is assigned a family therapist who works with them and their family throughout treatment to address family and relationship issues that might get in the way of recovery.

Why It’s Effective

We offer families the opportunity to be involved throughout the treatment process, providing education and support for the client as well as family members, so everyone can recover together.

  • h

Holistic Therapies

Holistic Therapies

Addiction affects every aspect of life, which is why treatment must work to heal not just the body but also the mind and spirit. Our holistic therapies, including yoga, meditation, acupuncture, and nutritional counseling, allow us to take a 360-degree approach to wellness and offer the chance for clients to begin healing from the inside out.

Why It’s Effective

Holistic treatments can be highly effective in helping people recover. Combined with evidence-based therapies, our clients have a full set of tools to build a solid foundation in recovery.

  • h

Personalized Treatment

Personalized Treatment

We pioneered the Malibu Model™ of treatment, which has since been adopted by leading treatment centers around the world. Central to the Malibu Model is a highly personalized approach with customized treatment plans that offer our clients the highest probability of long-term success.

Why It’s Effective

We know that every addiction — and every person — is different. By treating each client as an individual, we’re able to develop treatment and aftercare plans that address their specific issues and take into account their preferences and lifestyle.

Premium Service

Premium Service

We’ve created a treatment environment that allows our clients to begin the recovery process while enjoying the level of premium service they’re accustomed to. Our private rooms, world-class staff, pool, and luxury grounds with plenty of gorgeous spaces for quiet moments of relaxation ensure that you’ll recover in comfort.

Why It’s Effective

Comfort, relaxation and access to quality care make the recovery journey easier on the client, allowing them to focus on treatment.

Alumni Q&A

  • How can Promises Malibu work for people who don’t want to go to treatment?

    Previous Question

    Basim H.

    2016

    I was very resistant to the idea of going to treatment, although I wanted to stop, I didn’t want to go to treatment. I visited Promises Malibu and that’s when I started warming up to the idea of going to treatment. Once I went, I didn’t want to go anywhere else. They showed me the outline of what their program was and I thought “Maybe I do need this, a 30-day timeout from my life” and I agreed to do it, I wanted to get in there as soon as possible.

    There’s really a sense of community, people really seem to come together while they’re there and then afterwards. The Alumni network is very well connected and very active. When you live with somebody, and you sit there and you pour your heart out and you’re going through this really hard time, there’s a definite bonding that happens.

    2016

    I thought my life was going to be boring and I wasn’t going to have any friends … but I actually moved to LA after Promises. I’m best friends with a lot of the people that I went to treatment with. We had a lot of fun in treatment, and now a year later we’re still having fun. I feel like you don’t get that in a lot of places.
