Stages of Change Model

Cliffside Malibu uses Prochaska’s Stages of Change model, with their staff learning its practices from the founder himself. The model emphasizes meeting clients where they are at in the six stages of recovery: pre-contemplation, contemplation, preparation, action, maintenance, and stability. Cliffside aims to walk with clients through the stages, ending at stability and overall success.

Evidence-Based And Holistic Care

Evidence-based treatments and holistic care offer clients a well-rounded treatment experience. Yoga, interpersonal neurobiology, acupuncture, Reiki, and relapse prevention, among others, help heal all areas of the mind, body, and spirit. Their gym and swimming pools also help restore physical wellness, plus Cliffside’s nutritious chef-prepared meals.

Healing The Core of Addiction

Cliffside Malibu focuses on healing the cause of addiction, not just the symptoms. Believing that addiction stems from trauma or pain, they seek to alleviate these stressors and restore healthy coping mechanisms. Individual and group therapy help address pain points, allowing clients and their therapist to gently work towards full-person recovery.

Family Care And Aftercare

Knowing that addiction affects the whole family, Cliffside Malibu involves family members and significant others in treatment, as clients desire. Weekly family sessions educate family members on addiction, mental health, and the science behind it, helping them become better recovery allies. Aftercare services and extended care keep clients connected to recovery and the community at Cliffside Malibu.
