Our Drug Addiction Treatment Center
It’s an extremely difficult thing for anyone to come to grips with the fact that they might have a problem with drug addiction. The stigma alone keeps many people from seeking help, but without treatment, the problem won’t go away on its own and will only get worse over time. If it hasn’t happened already, it will take control of your life.
We understand the reluctance our clients have regarding addiction treatment, so one of our first priorities is to provide a safe and caring environment where the healing can begin without judgment.
We view recovery as a team effort between our staff and clients, and the goal is to find the root cause of the problem and resolve any underlying issues that may get in the way of sobriety.
There are many reasons why drug addiction happens, and we haven’t had a client yet that woke up one day and said they wanted to be addicted to drugs. But every one of them that accepted what their life had become after they got hooked, knew they wanted to get better again. That’s where we come in.
Inspire Malibu is a world-class drug addiction treatment center which provides an advanced, evidence-based approach to drug abuse treatment that is customized for each individual.
Each client is carefully assessed to discover their psychological needs as well as their drug and/or alcohol use history. Once the evaluation is complete, the clinical team creates a unique treatment plan that will properly address their unique set of problems.
We specialize in proven protocols, utilizing only the most effective therapies and treatments. Every aspect of our drug addiction treatment program has been researched and proven to work.
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 to a healthy lifestyle free from drugs.
Individualized Drug Addiction 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 functioning productively with family, in the 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.
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 for 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 from drugs.
Individualized Treatment plans include the right combination of the following therapies:
Psychological Issues in Drug Treatment Programs
Many individuals who are addicted to drugs also have other psychological disorders. Because drug abuse and addiction often occur in tandem with other mental illnesses, patients presenting with one condition should be assessed for others. When these problems co-occur, treatment should address or all issues – not just the drug addiction.
People suffering from depression, bipolar disorder, 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 and treat the substance abuse and psychological issues simultaneously. This process is known as dual diagnosis.
It’s also important that our patients feel like they are in a safe environment, their privacy is protected, and that they are kept comfortable during the drug withdrawal and rehabilitation process. Inspire Malibu offers exceptional accommodations, food, and staff that are on-call for our patients 24/7 for anything they may need.
Our Non-12-Step Approach to Drug Addiction Treatment
Our comprehensive, secular non-12-step drug rehab program has evolved over the past 10 years of working with drug addiction patients and utilizes a variety of best practices in treatment, including a focus on the five core areas of psychological functioning.
After a full assessment to determine the appropriate course of treatment, Detox is the first stage for those who need it. Detox is especially important for people who are addicted to heroin, opiates, and benzos. Heroin and opioid addiction can cause painful withdrawal symptoms and our detox program is carefully guided by a trained physician to ensure the safety and comfort of our clients. Withdrawal from benzos and other prescription medications is not as uncomfortable as opiates, but they offer a diffferent set of factors and protocols. Nonetheless, comfort and safety is a top priority for all detox clients. It’s imortant to note that not everyone requires detox.
30-day Addiction Treatment
Most clients begin a 30-day residential treatment program for addiction as recommended by the assessment. The program offers a comprehensive approach including one-on-one and group sessions, various forms of cognitive therapy, relapse prevention techniques, and other methods to develop a sense of well-being and an understanding of the reasons why addiction happens and ways to avoid triggers and urges in the future.
An assessment will be made near the end of the initial 30-day treatment period and the treatment team will make recommendations for the next steps. For those who need it, residential treatment can be extended for another 30 to 60 days or longer depending on the progress made during the first 30 days. Many clients with difficult underlying issues such as co-occurring disorders of severe depression, anxiety, bipolar, and other mental health issues require time to continue healing. We can easily accommodate extended treatment periods when needed.
Many clients find great success after our 30-day program, yet they still require some extra time working on minor issues. We have found that our outpatient treatment program is an ideal way for clients who live in the area can receive continued treatment after completing our residential program.
We Have Two Outpatient Options Available:
- The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is 3 hours of treatment per day for 3 days a week.
- The Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is 5 days a week for 5 hours a day.
Both of the oupatient programs focus on skills training, relapse prevention, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, and motivational enhancement therapy in a mostly group setting. Even though they are group sessions, they follow our non 12 step approcah to addiction treatment.
