Non-Religious and Secular Addiction Rehab

Inspire Malibu is a Non-12-Step Rehab addiction treatment center based on cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and motivational enhancement therapy (MET).

Our evidence-based, individualized therapy model offers the best all-around non-12-step rehab program for treating each client as a unique individual and utilizes Non-Religious Secular Rehab Treatment for Drug and Alcohol Addiction.

Inspire Malibu is not opposed to the 12 steps program, but we feel it works better as after-care therapy and not as an initial treatment option.

Our self-empowering approach to recovery teaches our clients how to communicate appropriately and how not to bottle up their emotions. By offering a non-12-step rehab, self-empowering approach, Inspire Malibu treats individuals as adults and clients who continually grow better.

Non 12 Step Secular Rehab

The Inspire Malibu, a non-12-step rehab integrative approach, has evolved over the last ten years of working with substance abuse clients. Substance abusers are not all alike, and different patients have very different physical and emotional needs.

The cornerstone of our rehab program is each client must be treated as an individual. No one is stigmatized and labeled with a diagnostic classification.

Inspire Malibu acknowledges what extensive research has confirmed: that no one approach to treatment is superior to any others and that effective treatment must be customized to meet individual goals and needs.

Non-Religious Non-12- Step Rehab for Drug and Alcohol Treatment

The essence of the Inspire Malibu integrative approach is that it neither requires nor recommends compliance to any one theoretical model or method of treatment. The specialist can coordinate, assess progress, and make ongoing treatment decisions.

Every patient needs to be evaluated, and a psycho-social and interpersonal assessment need to be done. Furthermore, all additional medical problems need to be addressed by an appropriate specialist (i.e., liver disease by a liver specialist, bipolar disorder by a psychiatrist, psycho-social and interpersonal issues by a psychologist).

The alliance between the individual therapy and the client’s primary therapist is of utmost importance.Non 12 Step Rehab Treatment Center

We use the stages of change model to match the client with all the appropriate therapies that fit their current needs.

We apply motivational techniques to address each client’s ambivalence and mixed feelings and encourage them to truly see the advantages of sobriety.

Clients identify and describe the various stages of recovery; early recovery is the first six months. This helps clients become more realistic in their personal goals.

Help clients address, identify, and describe the personal meaning of their addiction. For example, are they self-medicating? Filling up an inner emptiness? Numbing out feelings related to trauma? Or all of the above? Unless clients understand what they are actually doing on a deeper level, they will become chronic relapse individuals.

Clients are building a recovery and discharge plan from day one: This may include a sober living house and the outpatient program they will attend.

Individuals must “keep it fresh” and stay motivated in their aftercare efforts. Apathy is a killer.

Five Areas Of Psychological Functioning Within A Non-12 Step Rehab Recovery Treatment Program

Balancing, identifying, and regulating all emotions. Avoiding the traps of impulsivity and dumping anger on others.

Understanding and maintaining a secure sense of self. For example, the stable self is sometimes a container with boundaries, limits, and sensitive areas. Adults can become aware of how they are either affirmed or invalidated by others.

Identifying and not avoiding realistic conflict with others. Learning conflict resolution skills.

Maintaining adequate self-care. All nutritional needs are addressed.

Dual diagnosis and co-occurring disorders; How does alcohol use and depression feed into each other? How does amphetamine use and anorexia feed into each other?

Non-12-Step Rehab Recovery – A Healthy Design for Living

At Inspire Malibu, patients have access to a full-service gym, workouts on the beach, hiking, yoga, music, and art therapy. These healthy lifestyle habits help our clients to discover a passion for things other than alcohol or drugs.

Inspire Malibu knows that people who discharge from our center will need support when they leave. We introduce our clients to SMART Recovery support groups available online or in person. Inspire Malibu will set up a safe discharge plan for you or your loved one depending on their individual needs.

Extended care programs are available all across the country. Inspire Malibu walks patients through the transition from inpatient to extended care, including the home environment. Our doctors and therapists have private practices for continuing care on a weekly or bimonthly basis for local clients (L.A. area) and clients entering extended care programs.

Non-12-Step Rehab Individualized Treatment

The integrative non-12-step rehab program approach blends together a variety of best practices in substance abuse treatment today. Without addressing all the multiple holes and traps that await the substance abuser, the addict cannot stay on the safe road to recovery and therapy.

The Inspire Malibu treatment team focuses on the root cause of an individual patient’s issue. The Inspire Malibu staff can identify and carefully address the core patterns that have caused a continual return to self-destructive behaviors.

Inspire Malibu recognizes the magnitude of the California State Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation’s (CDCR) recent ruling that individuals cannot be mandated to attend religious-based treatment programs. “One reason why it’s critical to provide a proper secular option for treatment is to protect an individual’s constitutional rights, which state that religion shall not be forced upon them. Not everyone has a belief in God or religion, and ideally, a treatment center should offer both a 12-step element and a secular alternative program so the patients can make the best choice for themselves. How can any facility truly claim to provide individualized treatment without the option?

The Importance of Self-Help Groups

Organized in different formats, self-help groups may also be started during treatment. Inspire Malibu is one of a few non-12-step rehabs using disease model, therapy-based programs in the world. We treat addiction to substance abuse as a medical condition.

Inspire Malibu is different from most other programs. We specialize in alcoholism, opiate, and benzodiazepine addiction, as well as an emphasis on depression, anxiety, coping and communication skills, as well as learning boundaries with others.

Inspire Malibu offers the most effective, research-based, non-12-step rehab treatment available today.

Our points of value include:

– Our recovery program is all about individualized treatment

– Treatment program focuses on the client’s issues

– Recovery program is comprehensive

– All programs take a therapy-based approach

– Treatment allows the client to decide whether they want a faith-based recovery

– Religious Freedom

Most of us know there is a constitutional law prohibiting the government from interfering with the right to religious freedom. It’s ironic that over 95% of all drug and alcohol treatment centers in the United States are based on the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous.

Non 12 Step Rehab Recovery Program

A fair amount of these treatment programs are devoted to teaching their patients about the 12 steps. This includes attending AA meetings and even working on some of the first few steps while in rehab care. Alcoholics Anonymous is a spiritually centered program. Much of their program of recovery has to do with believing in God or a Higher Power and building a relationship with God or a Higher Power.

Inspire Malibu believes there is nothing wrong with this, and as a matter of fact, it is a good format for living and staying sober. Alcoholics Anonymous is there to help people stay sober, but it is not considered therapy. It is an “after treatment is completed” program.

One definition of religion is: a specific fundamental set of beliefs and practices generally agreed upon by a number of persons or sects or a body of persons adhering to a particular set of beliefs and practices. So, using that as the definition, Alcoholics Anonymous might very well meet the criteria of being a form of religion. The problem recently came to a head when a California judge ruled that a parolee, an atheist, was required to complete a 12-step treatment program as part of his sentence.

Apparently, the United States government felt Alcoholics Anonymous was enough of a religious organization to rule it was not fair to order an atheist to participate in it.
