Admissions Director Bob Howland Discusses the Fear of Detox
Inspire Malibu: Award Winning Drug Rehab, Alcohol Rehab, Addiction Treatment Center
America’s Most Comfortable Detox and Highly Successful Science and Evidence Based Drug and Alcohol Treatment Facility
Addiction is the only disease that tries to convince you that you don’t have it. It’s so powerful, addicts will do anything or say anything just to get a fix. Denial runs deep with addiction, and many addicts will look at another addict and proclaim, “That’s not me, I’m not that guy.” That’s your brain trying to convince you that you’re not an addict. That voice in your head is running your life, but you’re too close to it to understand it’s actually ruining your life. Fortunately, recent developments in medical science have shed light on how brain behavior can be changed.
Inspire Malibu is the newest premier treatment facility founded by addiction pioneer, Dr. A. R. Mohammad, that incorporates the latest evidence-based, non 12 step therapies for successful drug addiction treatment and alcohol rehab and recovery.
Our professional clinical team is a well-rounded group of compassionate alcoholism and addiction professionals unsurpassed in the industry. Every aspect of Inspire Malibu’s individualized program has been researched and proven to work. We treat a small group of clients in order to focus on each individual’s program and give it the attention it needs.
We do a full psychological assessment to isolate the underlying cause of the self-destructive addictive behavior, that if left untreated, will ruin the chance for an addicted patient to have a healthy recovery. We treat the core cause of the problem through intensive therapy and find what motivates an individual to live a fulfilling life, free from the confines of drug and alcohol addiction.
Inspire Malibu has an innovative non-12 step rehab approach that uses intense clinical therapy and real self-empowerment, not the 12 steps as the basis for treatment. We are not against the 12 Steps. They are an excellent outline to assist in Recovery Maintenance. They should not be used as treatment. Our Treatment approach is designed to keep your addiction arrested while you engage in a joyful, fulfilling life. We teach our clients how to deal with the addictive cravings and urges that accompany them in recovery and how to deal with and manage those thoughts and urges so that life can be enjoyed once more.
Inspire Malibu is unique among addiction treatment centers in that we pride ourselves on providing arguable the safest and most comfortable detox available. When someone with the disease of addiction is asked what their number one fear of seeking treatment is, they usually admit that they are terrified of detox. We offer comfortable and safe detox services for alcohol, prescription medications, opioids and all types of street drugs. Rest assured, it’s possible to complete detox in a short time and begin treatment for substance abuse using our successful non 12 step recover therapy to return to a better life.
In many cases of addiction, a co-occurring disorder exists which fuels addictive behavior. This is not true in all cases of addictive behavior but in a large number of instances there is an underlying disorder like Depression, Bi-polar disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Attention Deficit Disorder to name a few. At Inspire Malibu, when a client first enters the program, a full psychological assessment is given in order to determine if there is some underlying issue, or dual diagnosis, which in turn is causing an individual to self-medicate by using addictive substances.
Intensive One on One Therapy is important for successful recovery. At Inspire Malibu we do a full psychological profile to take a snapshot of a patient’s life to help determine any underlying issues that may be fueling their substance abuse. We provide science and evidence based therapy such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Enhancement Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Relapse Prevention. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy helps target dysfunctional thinking and maladaptive behavior to change these behaviors through appropriate coping strategies.
As our clients move through detox and begin to feel better we promote a healthy lifestyle, which helps solidify a lasting recovery by bringing the mind and body back to a healthy state. As recovery progresses, we provide activities such as yoga, meditation, outings and trips to a full service gym. Our goal is to help you find passion for exercise and life changing beneficial activities. When you engage in physical activity and relaxation techniques you will feel invigorated again and learn to manage anxiety in a healthy way free of substances. An active healthy way of life is a critical part of a lasting recovery plan.
