addiction - we can helpInspire Malibu is world-class drug addiction treatment center. It provides the most advanced approach to successful drug abuse treatment available today. Unlike other rehab programs, Inspire Malibu offers an individualized, all-therapy based treatment. Each client is first carefully assessed to determine their psychological needs and drug and alcohol use history. Once the evaluation is complete, the clinical team creates a unique treatment plan which will properly address their clinical needs.

We specialize in proven protocols, utilizing only the most effective therapies and treatments. Every aspect of our program has been researched and proven to work. In addition, by focusing on the origins of an individual’s issues, our staff is able to identify and address core patterns that provoke self-destructive and recurring behaviors in the addictive personality. By empowering an individual to gain progressive insight and awareness, we inspire vital motivation that can restore the addict or alcoholic to health. Drug detox and stabilization needs to occur first before the rehab process can begin.

We treat the following substance abuse disorders:

Individualized Treatment for Each Client

No single treatment is appropriate for everyone. Matching treatment settings, interventions, and services to an individual’s particular problems and needs is critical to his or her ultimate success in returning to productive functioning in the family, workplace, and society. We offer a diverse range of behavior changing and motivational methods in our customized drug addiction treatment program.

Effective treatment must address the individual’s drug abuse and any associated medical, psychological, social, vocational, and legal problems. Successful treatment attends to multiple needs of the individual, not just his or her drug abuse. It is also important that treatment be appropriate to the individual’s age, gender, ethnicity, and culture.

Individualized Treatment plans include the right combination of the following therapies:

Individual and/or group counseling and other behavioral therapies are the most commonly used forms of drug abuse treatment. Behavioral therapies vary in their focus and may involve addressing a patient’s motivation to change, providing incentives for abstinence, building skills to resist drug use, and replacing drug-using activities with constructive and rewarding activities. Different approaches of drug addiction treatment also focus on improving problem solving skills, and facilitating better interpersonal relationships. Personal participation in group therapy and other peer support programs during and following treatment can help maintain abstinence.

Psychological Issues

Many drug-addicted individuals also have other psychological disorders. Because drug abuse and addiction both of which are mental disorders often co-occur with other mental illnesses, patients presenting with one condition should be assessed for the other(s). And when these problems co-occur, treatment should address both (or all) issues. A large majority of people abusing drugs also have a psychological issue. People suffering from depression, bipolar, anxiety, PTSD and ADHD often turn to drugs to help them cope with their untreated conditions. At Inspire Malibu, we carefully test each client for possible co-occurring conditions. Both the substance abuse and the psychological issue need to be treated simultaneously.

Five Core Areas of Psychological Functioning

Our comprehensive, non 12 step rehab program has evolved over the past 10 years of working with drug abuse patients and utilize a variety of best practices in treatment. One of the key areas that make our unique, recovery programs different from other approaches is a focus on Five Core Areas of Psychological Functioning.

  1. Balancing, identifying, and regulating all emotions, avoiding the traps of impulsivity and dumping anger on others.
  2. Understanding and maintaining a secure sense of self. For example, the stable self is sometimes a container with boundaries and limits and sensitive areas. Adults can become aware of how they are either affirmed or invalidated by others.
  3. Identifying and not avoiding realistic conflict with others. Learning conflict resolution skills.
  4. Maintaining adequate self-care. All clinical and nutritional needs are addressed.
  5. Dual diagnosis and co-occurring disorders.
