At Burkwood Treatment Center, our philosophy of treatment is based upon the understanding that alcoholism (also called by different names, including “chemical dependency,” “addiction,” or even “Reward Deficiency Syndrome”) is a chronic, progressive disease that can be diagnosed and treated, and that abstinence is the beginning of permanent recovery. Most importantly, that recovery is a Way of Life!We understand that getting help is often the hardest step toward sobriety and we work diligently to provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere to each person who chooses to begin recovery with us. We honor the unique experiences, voices, and strengths that each participant brings to the treatment process, and we endeavor to incorporate these elements into treatment whenever possible. Also, we place a premium on ensuring that all participants and their family members are treated with dignity and respect.A cornerstone of our program is the knowledge that accepting personal responsibility for wellness is a key to lasting sobriety. In the words of Bill Wilson, “The essence of all growth is a willingness to make a change for the better and then an unremitting willingness to shoulder whatever responsibility this entails.”At Burkwood, we recognize that many people with this disease fall into the pattern of managing their illness instead of managing their recovery. In other words, we recognize that the best “Relapse Prevention Plan” is a “Strong Recovery Plan” based on years of evidence delineating the recovery process.The ultimate objective at Burkwood Treatment Center is for each participant to achieve his or her treatment goals and develop the recovery skills and strategies that will support long-term recovery. By teaching participants and family members about the nature of the disease and empowering our participants to effectively manage their associated symptoms, we help them to place themselves in the best possible position to successfully pursue happier and healthier lives, free from the biphasic cycle of the illness.

Malibu Hills offers the highest quality and most advanced programs for alcohol, drug, and dual diagnosis treatment. our modern approach to treatment has been thoroughly researched and proven to be successful. Our highly-experienced clinical team focuses on the root causes of each individual’s addiction and behavioral issues, to identify and address the patterns that lead to repetitive self-destructive behaviors. Malibu Hills is not a one-size-fits-all treatment center – each client is treated individually and is provided with a program that tailors to their unique needs. We believe in empowering our clients in their quest for awareness, insight, happiness, and fulfillment, and motivation is a key focus.Malibu Hills is a non-12 step, non-religious treatment center, although we are not opposed to the 12 step model. This means that the treatment program we offer is not based on the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous. Many individuals that come to Malibu Hills have tried the 12 step model without success prior to treatment. We believe it is a good support program and may be a useful tool, for some individuals, following the completion of treatment. We recognize that each individual has unique needs and therefore must follow their own, specialized program to ensure success and long-term recovery. Malibu Hills offers a wide variety of therapies and tools to create a diverse and holistic program, to ensure that our clients may shift their attitudes and behaviors to a live a long, healthy, and happy life.
