Summit Malibu offers a holistic program based on our belief that we are treating the whole person and not just a collection of symptoms and problems.
Our program includes medically supervised detoxification for physical symptoms, psychotherapeutic counseling for mental and emotional distress, and optional practices such as Yoga, Meditation, and 12-Step Groups for the spirit.
If you are considering another treatment center, ask them if their program is truly holistic, or if they require their clients to adhere to limited programs such as an “addiction cure."
Summit Malibu is owned and operated by people committed to helping other people, not by a corporation focused on continually increasing profits.
The owners of Summit Malibu are long-standing members of the recovery community, and many are in recovery themselves.
If you are considering another treatment center, ask them if their business is owned by people involved in the day-to-day operation of the program, or by a distant, profit-driven corporation.
Summit Malibu is located on three acres of private land, one full mile inside a private gated community, surrounded on three sides by wild hills, and on the fourth side by a beautiful ocean view.
Many other residential treatment centers claim to offer privacy while they are actually located in typical houses on standard residential lots facing public streets.
If you are considering another treatment center, ask them how much private land surrounds their facility, and how much of their facility is within view of public streets.
Summit Malibu’s residential center is limited to seven clients, allowing us to provide individualized treatment to each and every client.
By maintaining one of the highest client-to-staff ratios in the industry we are able to customize treatment according to the specific needs of the individual, rather than having to impose a generalized treatment onto a large group.
If you are considering another treatment center, find out how many clients in total they can accommodate and what their client-to-staff ratio is when their facility is full.
Summit Malibu’s world class therapists have decades of experience treating the many dual diagnosis/co-occurring disorders that often accompany chemical dependency, such as depression, anxiety, and PTSD.
Other treatment centers accept dual diagnosis clients but may not have the long-term experience required to treat these complex and demanding issues.
If you are considering another treatment center, find out how much clinical experience therapists actually have treating dual diagnosis and co-occurring disorders.
