Intensive Outpatient Program
At Seasons In Malibu, we believe that addiction is a complex multi-faceted disease with underlying causes that differ from individual to individual. From this perspective we have concluded that the most effective methods of treatment must be tailored to the individual to optimize the probability of success. Though addiction has commonalities across individuals we feel that focusing solely on any one treatment method is an incomplete and minimally effective paradigm in which to approach addiction treatment.
In our drug and alcohol outpatient treatment program a comprehensive treatment plan is drawn up for every patient. A good plan will ensure that their specific needs are met and the underlying issues causing them to compensate with drugs and alcohol are identified and resolved. We have the flexibility to organize and schedule our treatment program around the needs of your life so that your life does not have to stop while you get better. Additionally, our program works with most major insurance companies to ensure that you that you pay as little out of pocket as possible.
Broad Range Of Therapeutic Paradigms
Our Malibu rehab program consists of a broad range of therapeutic paradigms that when utilized collectively constitute a holistic approach to treating the entire person. Based on our initial evaluation you will be given a highly customized treatment plan designed by a team of highly qualified doctors and therapeutic professionals to best suit your individual needs and wants. Through your work with your primary therapist, you will be guided through the healing process in addressing issues of trauma, cognition, patterns of behavior, and triggers. In addition to a primary therapist you will also be assigned a case manager who will coordinate and collate information between all the treatment professionals working on your case and help guide you through the process of reconstructing a productive and fulfilling life for yourself.
Though we believe that individual therapy is extremely important, we also believe that connecting with and working through your issues with others in similar stages of the healing process is indispensable. For this reason we also provide therapy on the group level guided and directed by a practitioner trained in leading discussion groups. Through group education, one has the ability to explore issues of addiction and the process of learning to maintain a clean, sober, and positive new lifestyle. We feel that through the process of systemic family therapy, the family is treated as a system, which can be beneficial for integration into a new life that works for you and those around you.
To help you maintain a healthy family system using the techniques and skills you learn here we also offer a three day intensive family weekend of therapy and refresher courses on healthy familial coping and relationship skills. Lastly, we offer a team of experienced practitioners in supportive therapies such as integrative yoga therapy, massage, and traditional Chinese medicine.
