Patient, Family & Staff Safety is our Priority: COVID-19
For the vast majority of patients, the initial step in their drug addiction treatment plan is detox.
At Inspire Malibu, we offer detox for the following substances:
Each type of drug requires something different in terms of detox, and you’ll be monitored by experienced detox professionals who will continually oversee your progress.
Under no circumstances is it wise to attempt to detox on your own.
Some of the most common symptoms of withdrawal include:
Other symptoms might occur based on your addiction history, types of drugs you’re addicted to, length of use, and any other existing health problems.
Many people who try to detox on their own quickly give up and return to their addiction. Without professional guidance and support, the discomfort and pain can prove to be too much.
In some cases, people have even died from detoxing without medical assistance.
At Inspire Malibu, we take pride in our safe and comfortable process. If necessary, our staff can prescribe medication to ease the symptoms.
After detox is complete, you’ll be ready to take the next step in your drug addiction treatment plan.
Most of our patients stay with us for 30 days before they leave and continue with outpatient care.
That said, we always carry out an initial assessment before recommending a residential drug addiction treatment program.
After the first 30 days, we’ll do a second assessment and provide you with another recommendation at that time. It may be best for you to stay with us for 30 or 60 more days. Some patients stay with us longer. Our facility accommodates stays of any length.
How long you ultimately stay with us will depend on how much progress you make during that first month. The most important thing is that you stay with us for as long as you need.
Evidence-based treatment consists of multiple approaches that have proven to be successful at helping patients overcome addiction.
We’re extremely proud to offer an evidence-based approach to our patients. Many facilities still rely on 12-step principles with roots in organizations like Alcoholics Anonymous. These require embracing certain spiritual concepts as a means of treating addiction. Our secular approach doesn’t call for adherence to any religious or spiritual beliefs, yet any are welcome to be practiced.
Our evidence-based approach is more inclusive and takes underlying medical issues that often complicate addiction and recovery into consideration.
Yes, we offer Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) when necessary for detox or addiction to certain substances. Our medical director was the first doctor in CA to be licensed to use Suboxone for treating heroin and opioid addiction.
Our staff is experienced in the use of Medication Assisted Treatment combined with behavioral therapy and counseling to help patients with their recovery.
However, that doesn’t necessarily mean that medication is used for everyone in our drug addiction program. We use a variety of treatment modalities that are individualized to suit the unique needs of each person. No two people are the same and no two addictions are the same, either. Before beginning any treatment plan, a complete assessment is performed by a board certified addiction specialist.
Yes, group meetings are a part of every drug addiction treatment plan here at Inspire Malibu. While we understand it can be intimidating or uncomfortable to think about speaking about addiction in front of others, we can assure you that these sessions really do work. Most patients also discover that they become quite comfortable after the initial meeting.
Of course, you will also spend time in one-on-one therapy with an experienced counselor. Although group sessions are extremely helpful, we know that person requires individual attention. We appreciate that some topics are easier to discuss in private, as well.
One-on-one sessions also give our counselors the opportunity to regularly assess how each person is progressing with treatment, which includes listening to feedback. This way, any necessary changes can be made to ensure everyone is headed in the right direction.
Finally, research done by the National Institute on Drug Abuse has proven that individual therapy and group sessions are ideal for effectively treating addiction.
One of the biggest misconceptions about drugs is that marijuana somehow isn’t addictive.
Unfortunately, this isn’t a harmless misunderstanding. Far too often, it keeps people from entering drug addiction treatment and getting the help they need.
Marijuana actually has a number of negative side effects and addiction is unfortunately one of them. While it might not be as common or as harmful as other drugs, it’s possible to become psychologically and physically addicted to marijuana.
At Inspire Malibu, we take a psychological, social prospective, and clinical approach to treating patients who are addicted to marijuana as well as other drugs.
Research suggests people who are addicted to marijuana respond especially well to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Enhancement Therapy, both of which are available at our facility. We also use a non-12-step program and individual and group therapy sessions, among other things.
We know that each of our patients is unique from all the others. This is why we take an equally unique approach to drug addiction treatment for each of them. It’s also why our programs always incorporate one-on-one sessions, where counselors can focus on an individual patient’s needs, concerns, and questions.
This approach is how we’re able to adapt to unique health requirements. Our staff includes a team of doctors and trained addiction and mental health specialists, which, allows us to accommodate any health requirements that need to be considered in order for treatment to be successful.
Let us know about any requirements before or during intake and we’ll prepare accordingly.
Despite what many people think, drug addiction treatment isn’t a magic cure for addiction. Recovery is an ongoing process that requires time to heal and return to a normal life.
During your time with us, our goal is to help you achieve sobriety, understand the underlying causes of your addiction, and provide you with the tools you’ll need to continue living clean for the rest of your life.
We offer outpatient options so you can continue connecting with your therapist and receiving whatever help you need to support your progress.
We even help many of our patients find therapists who specialize in the type of care that worked best for them during their stay with us such as cognitive behavioral therapy, SMART Recovery, outside groups, AA, and any therapies that offered the most success.
Patients are always welcome to return for further inpatient care, if needed. Everyone person’s path to sobriety is different, and our door is always open.
Your family should also feel comfortable treating Inspire Malibu as a resource. We are available to help them better understand what they can do to help.
Inspire Malibu accepts a number of PPO insurance plans, and insurance can be verified on our website. or one of our intake specialists can review coverage over the phone for a definitive answer.
While we do not accept those forms of coverage, we do offer financing plans which last for 18 months and come with zero interest.
