Not all treatment programs are alike. The treatment center at Malibu Horizon offers a non-12 step approach to drug and alcohol abuse. We believe in a clinical approach to drug and alcohol addiction as well as a personalized treatment plan that targets the underlying issues behind addictive behavior. The Twelve Step approach to addiction treatment is a therapeutic support tools for successful recovery. Our staff will assist in locating a non 12-step support group once you've completed a treatment program with us. However, our inpatient approach targets the disease of addiction and the root problems that create a tendency to turn to drug and alcohol in a pattern of self-destruction. The Malibu Horizon staff are specially trained, discreet, and professional in treating those struggling with addiction.

Finding dual diagnosis residential treatment can be a challenge, but at Malibu Horizon we offer compassionate, knowledgeable treatment for individuals struggling with addiction and an underlying mental illness. We'll help you gain better control over your Depression, Bipolar Disorder, ADHD, or Anxiety and your addiction. Often, addiction treatment in dual diagnosis individuals fails unless the relationship between mental illness and the addiction is addressed along with a customized addiction treatment.

No one chooses a life of addiction, and it's often difficult to break free of an addictive lifestyle. One of the best ways to create lasting change is through inpatient drug rehab. Malibu Horizon's inpatient drug rehabilitation allows you to adjust to new life patterns and behaviors in a totally new environment with 24 hour support.

Inpatient substance abuse treatment allows you to treat your addiction without the distraction of work, family, and other environmental responsibilities and influences that can detract from your focus on healing. Inpatient addiction treatment has a much higher success rate than outpatient treatments or self-help programs. You don't have to struggle alone. Our caring staff will support and encourage you every step of the way.
