Substance Abuse and Addiction Treatment Resources in Malibu

Malibu Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

Malibu is a scenic beach city in Los Angeles County. The area boasts stunning beaches and pristine parks with many outdoor recreational activities to enjoy, such as surfing, strolling along Malibu Pier and hiking along the Solstice Canyon trail through the Santa Monica Mountains to reach the year-round waterfall. Residents of this exclusive beach community enjoy the great climate, high levels of home appreciation and a relaxed lifestyle.

Despite its charm, however, Malibu isn’t exempt from the alcohol and drug crisis spreading across the rest of the country. Authorities have found huge hauls of drugs in boats off the beautiful coastline. Even those responsible for setting up rehabilitation centers have succumbed to the harmful substances themselves. It just goes to show how easily this epidemic has managed to spread.

All is not lost. For those looking for help to combat substance misuse, there is no shortage of treatment options for drug rehab in Malibu, California or alcohol rehab in Malibu, California. The first step is determining the correct program for your needs. You may need different levels of intensity as you move along toward recovery.

Finding Help in Malibu

Malibu, California Alcohol Rehab Centers and Drug Centers

There are varying levels of treatment programs. Some patients choose to attend a residential treatment program before moving on to a partial hospitalization or outpatient program. Your current situation determines the best option for you. Understand the differences between each level so you can make an informed decision about the treatment program that’s best suited to you.

    Residential Treatment Programs

    Residential treatment programs require patients to reside at the facility throughout the treatment and reco¬¬ve¬¬ry process. Professionals are on hand around the clock for support, encouragement and to offer medical assistance if needed. Some residential programs last for 30-90 days while longer programs of six months are available for those needing more care. Residential treatment programs provide individual and group therapy sessions. Patients also take part in physical activities. Patients learn skills such as nutritional planning and stress management to help them cope with life outside of the facility when the treatment has ended. Patients also meet peers who are going through the same process. This type of treatment program is ideal for those suffering from severe substance misuse disorders or those with a prolonged history of substance misuse.

    Partial Hospitalization Programs

    Partial hospitalization programs require patients to spend a significant amount of time at the treatment facility each day, yet return home overnight, assuming patients have access to a safe and supportive home environment. Many of the same amenities available in residential treatment programs are available in partial hospitalization programs.

    Outpatient Treatment Programs

    Outpatient programs are the most flexible of the treatment programs. Patients can live at home to continue with normal commitments, such as work, education and family life. Therapy sessions at the facility occur at scheduled times. Patients must have the willpower to avoid the temptations that previously enhanced their addictions. This type of program is suited to those who’ve already completed higher levels of treatment, or those with mild cases of substance misuse.

When weighing the different levels of treatment, assess your situation to decide which is the best program for you. Take into account your addiction history, the substance you’re addicted to as well as how long your addiction has lasted. Think about whether you need a medical detox, what treatment your insurance covers and any financial support you have access to. Sometimes, patients prefer to use an out of state facility to being their recovery. The Recovery Village has a national network of such treatment facilities. Here, you’ll have all the support and care you need, from detox through to aftercare programs.

Detox Centers

You already have one foot on the road to recovery. Now it’s time to take the next step and attend a Malibu drug detox center or a Malibu alcohol detox center. It’s better to use the services of a detox center rather than attempt detox alone, as the withdrawal symptoms can be both unpleasant and harmful. At a detox center, you’ll receive monitoring and treatment as needed. This reduces any unpleasant side effects and makes detoxification easier to achieve. Those same side effects are what led many to recurrence of use, so it makes sense to have 24/7 access to care. You may prefer to detox while in a treatment program, as a form of combined therapy.

Recovery Meetings Near You

Aftercare is just as important to your recovery as attending a Malibu drug rehab center or a Malibu alcohol rehab center. Recovery groups such as SMART Recovery, Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous offer encouragement and support to help you avoid recurrence of use. There are many options for recovery groups and support meetings in and around Malibu, so you can surely find something that works with your schedule.

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) Meetings

Alcoholics Anonymous is one of the oldest recovery groups in existence, operating around the globe. Its mission is to help alcoholics recover from their addictions by surrendering those addictions to a higher power. The program features the famous 12 steps, and members work together to share knowledge and inspiration. Membership is free; all you need to join is a desire to live a life free from alcohol. The spiritual aspect is strong, but the program follows no specific religion or belief system.

Narcotics Anonymous (NA) Meetings

Narcotics Anonymous is a sister organization to Alcoholics Anonymous, offering a similar recovery program geared toward those addicted to drugs. Members complete each of the 12 steps with the help of a sponsor, someone who has already remained sober for a significant amount of time. Members are encouraged to share their stories during supportive meetings. Similar to AA, NA merely asks members to submit to a higher power and be ready to become substance-free.

Members learn to self-manage their thoughts, behaviors and feelings. SMART meetings do not feature a spiritual tone, unlike AA and NA.

Members attend welcoming meetings where false assumptions about addictions are corrected and the opportunity is given to share experiences, triumphs and struggles with peers. Participation is voluntarily, as attendees are more than welcome to merely listen. These programs are very helpful for anyone who has a loved one attending a drug rehab center in Malibu, CA or an alcohol rehab center in Malibu, CA.
