Testimonial From Colleen A
How many treatment centers have you been to in the past & why didn’t they work?
5-6 Rehabs -never stayed 28days, AA was forced upon me, meetings from 7:00-AM to 9:30 PM, & too much paperwork.
How was your experience at Journey Malibu different from the others?
JM did things that I had never done before like: yoga, art therapy, jewelry, stones, collages. JM gave me plenty of relaxing time to rejuvenate after my processing sessions. I enjoyed the many outings JM provided: Getty Museum, beach walks, sunsets, lunches & dinners. JM brought back my happiness that was missing for a few years.
Was Journey Malibu’s Insurance team helpful with your insurance needs?
Journey Malibu’s insurance team was able to get back 80% of my reimbursement.
Was JM available for you for when you made the decision to come in?
Chris & Terry were instrumental in helping me make my decision within hours regarding my recovery & were very accommodating, as I was admitted very late on the same night without a problem.
How did you value all of our professionals & the services that were provided to you?
Dr. Rohini & Kumar were the professionals who stood out – both were very concerned for my well-being, & they helped me when I was desperate. Dr. Rohini ‘s message, “It’s just a thought, let it go” was so powerful & has been one of the many tools she has given to me & that I have turned to in my recovery. Dr. Kumar helped me with my acute withdraws & he was very professional and calming.

My experience with the holistic treatment i recieved at Journey Malibu was immensely helpful, supportive, integrative, and applicable. It helped me to become connected to myself and restored personal confidence. I loved all the modalities they offered such as the yoga, art therapy, and acupuncture. They were also very helpful and allowed for centeredness, true gifts. The medical and psychological team provided me safety and invaluable tools, they worked through some of my toughest moments and gave me the confidence to witness my emotions rather then allowing them to consume me. The staff was outstanding, empathetic, and supportive. The overall experience was wonderful.
I could not have asked for anything more when it came to the holistic treatment i recieved. It was the perfect balance of so many different modalities that expanded my mind and way of thinking in so many positive ways. It really brought me back in touch with my inner self to listen to my inner wisdom, both of which will keep me going further in life. The ease of conversation I got from Dr. Rohini was incredible, and the staff at Journey Malibu went above and beyond to inspire and uplift each client to their own personal greatness.
During my 90 days at Journey Malibu I have truly come to love myself. Throughout the process I have found myself. I am leaving with pride, confidence, respect, and a new lease on life. The staff at Journey Malibu are awesome and they all work together to make the process kind and loving with all their help. The doctors and therapists are more supportive then you would ever hope for. Not only were they supportive but their knowledge was above and beyond what i expected and i have become aware of my strengths and weaknesses. The programming offered at Journey Malibu such as yoga, meditation, hypnotherapy, and neurofeedback helped relax my mind in ways i didnt think possible. The meals that their private chef prepared were so satisfying and healthy. I lost 25 pounds and felt healthier everyday. All around a wonderful life changing experience.
The holistic treatment was beyond my expectations and completely changed my views on chinese medicine. My one on one therapy fulfilled my emotional and spiritual needs to access my ability to recover and regain my faith and love in life. Yoga has become a important part of my life since being introduced to it at Journey Malibu, it centers me and reminds me of the importance of staying focused on my recovery and i have accessed my spiritual side. The medical team at Journey was phenomenal. The psychiatrist took the time to listen and talk to me and not push medication and send me out the door. The medical monitoring was in depth and highly structured, insuring my health and safety during my recovery. And last but not least the Journey Malibu staff was the kindest and most caring individuals i have ever met. Journey Malibu was my 10th treatment center for anorexia and the staff was very aware of my diesease and the importance of support throughout my recovery. I could always talk to the staff about anything and they truly cared for me and saved my life.
I can’t express enough how wonderful Journey Malibu was for our daughter. It really saved her. I called MANY places and spoke to many people trying to find the perfect place for her. After speaking to an admissions counselor, we (including my daughter) made the decision to have her go to Journey Malibu.
It was exactly what she needed. If one of the therapies turned out not to be as effective as it could (different things work for different people), then Cyndee Evanoff, Journey Malibu’s executive director,(who is amazing, loving and caring), would substitute something different that did work! The flexibility was perfect…it allowed my daughter to find the best therapies for her, including art therapy, reiki, acupuncture, yoga, traditional therapy, etc, as well as the loving, caring treatment from the people on staff. My daughter also is Vegan and she loved the food. I could go on forever about how grateful I am, but just know that Journey Malibu is the best out there!
