Specialization

  • Safe Drug And Alcohol Detox

    Unlike many other Drug Detox treatment centers in the Los Angeles area, Inspire Malibu offers a safe onsite environment that is closely monitored and carefully supervised under direct supervision by licensed physicians. As such, management of otherwise painful withdrawal symptoms in our drug and alcohol detox center is achieved by using clinically proven medications to provide relief during the sometimes agonizing withdrawal process.
  • Personality Disorder Treatment

    As an award-winning science based addiction treatment center, Inspire Malibu also excels at diagnosing and treating a wide variety of personality disorders. If a personality disorder is found to exist either singly or in combination with an addiction, our Personality Disorder Treatment Center staff can subsequently provide a combination of therapeutic methods to treat the suffering patient.

It was a welcoming and inviting place. A little too expensive and posh. It should increase the amount of social activity that we can have.

The facility was a large house in the Malibu Hills, and so the physical environment was nice. The psychiatrist who owns the rehab is a knowledgeable expert on addiction treatment outside (but not excluding) the 12-step modeling, including effective medications and therapies. However, I believe the treatment center, despite having the knowledge and resources to provide good treatment, was too lax and not intensive enough. my sister (and the other patients) had a surprising amount of free time outside of treatment. the treatment sessions were sporadic and located outside the house. it seems like they should have had more on-site treatment and doctors/therapists since it was an inpatient facility. it just seemed like she was staying at a nice shared vacation rental while going off to therapy a few times a week. it was extremely expensive (although her insurance covered it i believe, at least mostly). in any case, she started using almost as soon as she got out. and she had been in there for several weeks. i feel like it was one of those treatment centers just more about making money than for successfully treating its patients. but then again, so is the entire for-profit healthcare system in general. which i find disgusting. i would suggest just going to the doctor who owns it if you can, because he is a reknowned addiction and mental illness expert who understands the physiological aspects well and knows how to use meds properly for treatment (although the patient has to take them so there's always that complication). the rehab was more ike a vacation. if she could have, my sister would have moved in and stayed there forever, which is not how addicts normally respond to treatment facilities, if you now what i mean. so i would say, go to a non-profit for in-patient treatment, and see if you can use this doctor on an out- patient basis. the rehab wasn't particularly successful for my sister. and p.s. my sister, like many addicts, has been to many different rehabs over the past 20 years, and she relapsed more quickly after this one than ever before -- like within a week (in past she would relapse either several months or even years before relapsing). this facility simply doesn't provide enough therapy, particularly individual therapy, to adequately treat the addicts.

I have been to over 13 rehabs in the last 5 years! This one cared about my well being! The classes are very informative but fun! I was 2000 miles away from home and I rarely got depressed because the love for helping gives you hope! The down time can get boring!! All weekend is free time! I'm usually the only 40 yr old huffer in rehab I have had airduster freeze to me and I have frostbite scars on 60% of my body and 3 fingers amputated and the staff never made me feel weird for not drinking or using narcotics! They helped in any way extra that I needed.

The staff is awesome, they are really passionate about what they do. All of the facilities are absolutely beautiful; the house itself is the nicest house I\'ve ever lived in. The food is prepared fresh everyday by a chef who really knows how to cook some good food. Overall my experience at Inspire Malibu was life changing!
