An Exclusive Drug Rehab

At JOURNEY MALIBU we know that when our clients decide to get help, they need to know that they are not signing up for a prison sentence. In fact, just the opposite is true. At the Exclusive drug rehab center at JOURNEY MALIBU, you will feel the freedom that accompanies one of the most difficult challenges a human being can embark on – the pursuit of real recovery.

On behalf of all of us here at JOURNEY MALIBU, we congratulate you for having the courage to admit you have a problem, and taking the necessary action to seek help. We are confident you will feel rewarded once you step through the doors at JOURNEY MALIBU’s drug and alcohol treatment facility. And now that you’ve taken that first step on the road to recovery, it’s time to experience the joy that comes with choosing to live free of addictions, and the new life you have created for yourself.

The professional supportive staff is here for you, day and night, to meet your needs.

At JOURNEY MALIBU, we understand how trying to do this alone can be defeating. It takes courage to pick up that phone and admit you have a problem. But have faith — that you’re online now seeking help, and reading about treatment at JOURNEY MALIBU, means you have awareness. Awareness arrives, so that recovery can begin. And rest assured, your dignity will be maintained. Many of us at JOURNEY MALIBU are in recovery ourselves, we understand the agony of defeat when an addiction continues to take control, despite all your well intentioned efforts.

At our facility, we’ll educate you about the neurobiology behind your addiction, so that you can understand it is a no-fault illness of the brain. We do not ascribe critical notions of liability, imperfection, or fault to a human being for having this brain disorder. We help our residents to understand that their addictions have in essence “hijacked their brains” of their normal abilities to function. We believe that a sense of normalcy and of taking pleasure in life can be regained for even the most critical addict, but that education and understanding of the neurophysiologic mechanisms behind addiction are necessary to a successful and complete recovery.

How does our program differ from other,
more conventional rehabs?

You may be wondering how Journey Malibu’s rehab differs from other, more conventional California drug rehabs. For starters, a more conventional drug rehab will not necessarily focus on you as an individual the way an Exclusive drug rehab can. Quite often, the more conventional Malibu drug rehabs will admit a large number of patients into their drug treatment centers, which in turn increases the probability that you will become just another statistic to them. They will see you as simply one more “victim” to whom they will administer a generalized, one-size-fits-all treatment plan. On the other hand, at JOURNEY MALIBU, we limit the number of guests so an experience of Quality verses Quantity will prevail.

That means 1) we have an extremely low client-to-staff ratio, 2) we can focus on you, and 3) that we have a much greater ability than other California drug rehabs to get to know you behind the mask, and custom-tailor a treatment program towards a rejuvenated, realigned, and yes, recovered you.

We are also cell and computer friendly, and understand the need to stay connected to your life while in recovery. Titrating integration back into the “real world” is an important part of the program here. Arresting addictions (substance use or behavioral) is but the beginning. How you live your life after rehab is our real focus, and helping you stay connected to your life during your stay with us will allow us to better understand the work that needs to be done. We will then be able to offer more effective guidance, as you rebuild your capacity to negotiate, tolerate, and move through situations that may have adversely affected you in the past.

– Our Customized and Individual Treatment Plans –

The customized, individual treatment plans we offer at JOURNEY MALIBU are truly what sets us apart from the rest.


We feel that because our clients are each unique, their treatment plans should be as well. At JOURNEY MALIBU, we believe that a single-minded focus on any one treatment program, the dogged adherence to a single methodology, is a leading reason why many individuals may not recover sufficiently to sustain their sobriety for any significant period of time. Consequently, we have assembled a group of experienced, compassionate therapists to take the most effective aspects of all the programs we’ve studied, and combine them into a multi-layered, many pronged approach to recovery that will deliver the best core treatment aspects of them all.

The “one-stop” treatment program truly serves our clients’ WHOLE and ENTIRE needs as they move towards the freedom, joy, and sobriety they so desperately desire.

The many treatment programs and modalities we offer our clients at JOURNEY MALIBU include, but are not limited to:

  • Individual Therapy
  • Group Therapy
  • Reinvention Coaching
  • Healing through the Creative arts (writing, photography, etc.)
  • Acupuncture
  • Yoga/Tai Chi
  • Meditation/mindfulness
  • Fitness programs
  • Nutritional Intelligence
  • Equine therapy
  • Sail/heal experience
  • Adventure Therapy
  • Neurofeedback

Of course, there will also be plenty of time to kick back while watching our big screen plasma TV’s, take a sauna, before a relaxing massage, or head down to our private beach club for some old fashioned fun in the sun. At JOURNEY MALIBU, we address the whole person, to rejuvenate, and restore balance

Please call if you or your loved one needs help. We assure you all calls are strictly confidential. And if we feel that our program is not the right fit for you, we promise to help you find one that is.
