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.
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.
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 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.
