Receiving therapy in a residential treatment center means that the treatment process takes place 24 hours a day. In addition, no matter what time of day or night, professional clinicians are on-site to assist during times of crisis or doubt. A residential treatment center is a place where key changes occur in each client. Clients learn to change their attitudes, perceptions and behaviors so that the use of drugs or alcohol is no longer necessary. Underlying problems that led to the substance abuse are identified and addressed. Infinity Malibu offers the time and attention needed for the slow and more gradual building of recovery.
Often clients who come to Infinity Malibu’s residential drug abuse program have relapsed, or have only attempted recovery in outpatient or short-term programs. Receiving addiction treatment in a long-term, multi phased treatment modality is the catalyst for successful outcomes for our clients. Clients learn solid skills to support their life-long recovery, and transition from Infinity Malibu’s residential care into the next step in the continuum of care. Aftercare planning is part of Infinity Malibu’s comprehensive services.
The treatment day at Infinity Malibu begins early and is very full. This is important, particularly in the early part of recovery. Clients work closely with their therapists in both individual and groups settings, to begin building positive ways to live a sober life. Utilizing a non-denominational 12 Step recovery foundation, in addition to Dialectical Behavior Therapy, enables Infinity Malibu clients to learn skills of mindfulness, distress tolerance, and emotion regulation. Clients learn to self-soothe and to live life without the use of alcohol or drugs by engaging in yoga and equine therapy.
All of our certified clinicians are employed at Infinity Malibu full-time, and are completely dedicated to providing the highest level of care. With such a wide and solid base of clinical expertise, we are able to treat many types of dual diagnosis that are present with substance abuse. These may include anxiety, depression, trauma issues, and phobias. At Infinity Malibu we also treat the process addictions (sexual/relationship addiction, codependency, Adult Children of Alcoholics, gambling, disordered eating) that are co-occurring with dependence on alcohol or drugs. Until the individual receives holistic treatment (mind, body, spirit) relapse is imminent.
