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.
