Drug Addiction Help

Going through addiction alone can feel overwhelming and isolating. For many, drug addiction can occur slowly, but rapidly increase, causing loss of finances, relationships, careers, and sense of self. Addiction is a chronic disease, but with the right therapeutic treatment modalities, you can recover with our drug addiction help.

At Malibu Detox and Residential Treatment Center we provide the highest level of care and quality treatment at our beautiful and private locations in Malibu, California. From start to finish, our kind and empathetic staff will guide you through the admissions process and help you understand what to expect from our treatment programs.

Drug Abuse and Addiction Treatment Centers​

While the drug addiction help options offered vary by facility, generally individuals will work through a detox and residential program first, before stepping down to an intensive outpatient program or sober living environment. The common medical interventions and treatment styles include:

Medical detox

Medical Detoxification

Medical detox programs are often the first step in drug addiction treatment. Before participating in regular therapeutic programming, you will need to go through the withdrawal process. Withdrawal symptoms can become life threatening if not managed properly. However, a medical detox center will manage withdrawal symptoms with the help of anti-craving medications and symptom-reduction medication. After detoxing, you may have the option to participate in medication-assisted treatment for extended craving reduction and control. 


Residential Treatment Centers

Many patients new to drug or alcohol addiction treatment benefit from the structure and routine provided by inpatient treatment. Inpatient and residential treatment centers require the patient to reside at the treatment center for the duration of treatment. Residential rehab centers are designed to be comfortable and structured like a home, allowing you to participate in medical care appointments, support groups, psychotherapy, and other treatment practices while living at the facility.


Outpatient Treatment Centers

With outpatient treatment, you can return home, or to a sober living home if your own home environment is not conducive to recovery. An outpatient treatment plan is designed to help you continue to receive treatment but with more flexibility and less intensive hours. This allows you to go return to work or family responsibilities while commuting to a treatment center a few hours per week to continue your treatment.

What Can I Expect From the Drug Addiction Help Process?​

At Malibu Detox, after you have completed an intake appointment and met with our team of addiction treatment specialists to set up your customized treatment plan, you will be able to begin the drug rehab process. 

Substance use disorders often come with co-occurring disorders such as anxiety and depression. Your treatment team will screen for these mental health disorders, and integrate their treatment into your substance abuse treatment program. Each treatment program is structured differently depending on your unique treatment plan, but our general programming includes:


You can expect to start the day early, with a healthy breakfast. Afterward, depending on the day, there may be morning meditation or yoga by the beach. You may then have a group meeting to help you recognize your triggers that push you to drug use such as emotional pain, lack of sleep, or certain people in your life.


Often, the majority of the major therapeutic groups occur in the afternoons. These treatment practices and modalities can include: 

  • Behavioral therapy practices like MET, MI, CBT, and DBT
  • Family therapy
  • Group or individual talk therapy sessions
  • Experiential therapy and activities
  • Educational groups on medication management, nutrition, and fitness


Evenings may involve attending a 12-step program after dinner. There are specific meetings designed for participants depending on what type of addiction they struggle with, common ones including Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous.
